A Big Chirpy Hello all my Cricky hoppers! I am so excited about this hop! This hop is to celebrate ALL the fabulous Cricut Bloggers across the USA. I was prompted to do this hop because my hubby and I found out we are moving to CA next month all the way from FL! Road we come!
I am SO proud of all the blogs in my hop--they are so generous (you should see their prizes) and have worked SO hard--so everyone try to be patient with them or any glitches, and remember to leave them a kind word and thank you. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.

My state is New Hampshire~! I actually live in FL, but my hubby grew up in NH and I was able to go visit there a few years ago. It was beautiful! My favorite place we visited while in New Hampshire was definitly the Old Man in the Mountain! I had read about it, but it was cool to see it in person (even though the old man has fell down now). My hubby was super sad about it just all of a sudden falling, since he grew up seeing this Franconian site.

The place I would love to visit would be Australia--it's one of the countries I've not been to yet! My hubby and I have been all over the entire USA and in many countries: Japan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Okinawa, Mexico, South America, etc

The last part of our Cricky 50 Blog hop was for us to show our favorite project or old. I get so excited about my newest projects--I can't help it! So I'm showing you my two favorite projects that I've done this month. I love pink & black so when I saw Robyn  of My Pink Stamper was having black with your favorite color for her Pinkalicious blog hop going on this weekend too--I thought I'd enter these 2 projects I finished!

 The first is my mini book I made: Mi Amour

The second is my new material girl, Threadlocks! You  must come back on the 14'th, and you can see the video and challenge : Stamping with a Material Girl!--you can win a brand new stamp set featuring ThreadLocks! It's going to be GREAT! I will take a better pic of ThreadLocks in the AM, my lighting is just not good at night (gee--I wonder why? lol)
