Blog Hoppin and Scrap LOAD Day 11

Hi Hoppers!  Welcome to my blog!  Please book mark me to come back and visit!  I have lots of tutorials at the top and a gallery of fun projects!  Right now I am hosting a LOAD Challenge.  That is a LayOut A Day.  Everyday you come to my blog and find your inspiration!  Please feel free to join!

I have added a new subscription feature on the right.  Go ahead look I’ll wait for you.  So, if you are new or a faithful follower, please sign up so you can receive email notification when I post a new blog entry.  You wouldn’t want to miss candy would you???

If you haven’t started from the beginning please do! Start at the Rusty Pickle blog and jump to each blog until you are back to me! My project for you to view for the blog hop is a stocking stuffer!  A very good friend Amy showed me this idea a year ago and I loved it so much!  All you need is scraps from your favorite paper line (I chose Rusty Pickle’s Candyland) and a bunch of clear name tag pouches!









Simple, but fun right? Go ahead and try it! Soon you’ll be giving everyone “brag books”!

Here is a link to one I did last year:

If you are following the LOAD Challenge, today I want to inspire you with Rusty Pickle! Do a layout that is mainly Rusty Pickle! I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with!

Before you leave me, please leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing for some blog candy! Now, onto the next person: Heidi by jumping over to her blog here!

Happy Scrappy,
