Blog Hop

Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! This is the first of 12 months of inspiration, each to take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the ispiration from our members....... or the prizes :-)

Our theme for January is "Love is In The Air".

Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching I thought I would challenge you to make something for a special person in your life. I would like you to find something that you would usually throw away and use that. I used a cashew container after washing it out, covered it with cardstock and used my MS punch to embellish it a little bit.



You may add more embellishments but since this is for a 3-year old I figured he would get to what is inside and not care about the outside :)

This blog hop will run from today, January 30th until February 6th. We will be drawing for a winner February 7th.
Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is Tanya

I'm a big believer in recycling, re-using, renewing items around your home. This reminds me to do something with the baby jars I have.
