We're so excited to being doing this hop and have an amazing line up with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop. This hop runs from Feb 23 - Mar 2, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop.

The grand prize is being sponsored by Tricia from Little Scraps of Heaven and she will be the last blog on the hop.


In order to be eligible for the grand prize you must:
*(1)* leave a comment on every blog in the hop (list provided below), as well as

.
Again (as I repeat from yesterday) ... If you have never utilized Tricia's patterns before please note that you SHOULD NOT be afraid!

Now on to my project for the second day.  This is an oldie but goodie.  Well, in all honestly this is my favorite layout that I've EVER completed!   I used the Bumblee Bear Pattern from LSHD  for this.  I am torn on whether the colors I chose are what draws me in or the way that I used hexagons for mats rather than the standard square/rectangle.











The papers used were by Nikki Sivils.
I also used an acrylic stamp by Nikki Sivils too. 
Prima flowers were used.
Patterns for the tear bear and beehive are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs


So today is my big travel day.  Traveling with my two boys from Detroit, Michigan back to Seattle, Washington.  Words can not express how excited I am to get home and see my husband.  It has been nearly a month that we have been apart ... longest stretch in the history of "us".


My visit with family was priceless, but you know what they say "There's no place like home".

Now on to my project for today ... and of course I have a story behind this.


I have simply colored a LSHD digi stamp of the Angel Bear with Scissors with copic markers.


I have used the following copic colors:
Bear : E31, E57, E59
Dress: G82, G40
Cloud: B45, B91
Halo: Sakura Gelly Roll Pen, Golden Star
Scissors: 100, and American Crafts Metallic Marker in Silver
Highlights: Signo white pen


This is my first experience with Copics.  I've been dying to use them and I love how this turned out.


My crafting time has been limited the past three weeks but I have been dedicated to being a part of this blog hop.   
First, the good news.  The reason that I have been traveling is to await, greet, hug and kiss a new addition to our family ... his name is Samuel Michael and he is my sister's second son.  Upon hearing his due date it was evident to me that I HAD to be here for his birth!  So ... I decided to pack up my boys (Ages 1 and 4) and get on a plane and travel to Michigan (from Washington).  I had so many plans .... boy ... did I have so many plans.   First and foremost was spending time with my family.  Second was maybe getting a moment to myself (can I say Grandma's everywhere??), and third was accomplishing many tasks such as a few paper piecing projects, a minor blog redesign, set up of an etsy shop .... oh, and my list goes on and on.   Now .... what did I REALLY get accomplished?  Visits with family of course, a little bit of shopping .... little bit of sleep, lots of dealing with children who were struggling without their beds, their routines, their friends, their FATHER!  Oh, the drama that has gone on these past three weeks.  And it's not over yet.


One day, while driving around my one year old in the car (in the freezing cold snowy weather) I decided that I just had to get something done for the hop or I would just simply go crazy.   As I read blog feeds (in the car), flipped through magazines (in the car) and played on facebook (in the car) I decided that I would go with coloring a digi stamp of the LSHD angel bear with scissors .... of course, in the car.


SO, this is truly my first ever project that I have decided on, and completed on  ... in a car.
I can only hope that it is my last.


To complete the project I will most likely use my spellbinders dies to cut out the bear and place on a cute card.  Perhaps you will see that later in the week here .... stay tuned!




By the way, I actually colored 5 digi stamps to get to this one.  Practice makes perfect, right?




I'm also guessing that if you are here ... you might be wondering if I had any blog candy to offer??  Well the answer is OF COURSE!  To enter into the drawing to win, please become a follower of my blog.  You may also like to check me out on facebook too (although becoming a fan is not a requirement to win).




My blog candy is a few of my can't live without items:

(1) $10.00 gift certificate to Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
(2) Fiskars Scissors
(3) Fiskars Retractable Fingertip Detail Knife

Now, hopefully you've completed all the requirements to win the great prizes, and head on over to  Shannon's blog for more.
