Hello Friends and Welcome to my Blog! :) Welcome to my Blogaversary party! :)

Today my friends and I are having a hop to celebrate my one-year anniversary of my blog which is Jan 20th.  I can't believe how fast time has flown by!!  I am thrilled to say that it was an exciting and amazing year...I have met some of the most wonderful friends in the crafty world and there were many that helped me on my crafting journey...thanks to you all! and my followers who supported me and cheered me on as well! I am excited to continue the journey and share with you the amazing talent that is out there as well as my own are all a blessing! :)

If you came here you started in the right place, because I want you to have a chance to win some blog candy. Don't want to miss the fun either! :) So don't fly away and enjoy sitting on the flower and hopping along the way to some talented designers I know! :)

We have the best sponsors for our hop that will just blow your mind!!!
Shannon Keith Leffew has a gift certificate for flowers in her Etsy Shop Creative Kuts a $20 Gift Card at     2 birthday cards made by her, Stamp Set from PLUS $10 Gift Certificate for Little Scraps of Heaven 
Positive Thoughs Stamp Set
all that she is asking that you stop by her blog at, become a follower if you aren't already at her blog, and leave some bloggie love telling her that you are hopping with Butterfly Kisses Blogaversary.
So, make sure you give bloggy love to all my guest designers and of course me! ...hehe...and have fun hopping along the way.

In case you flew away and went in the wrong direction here is the line up in case you need to fly your way back! :)
So without further ado lets get ready to soar and get the party started.  The only requirement I made for this party was that everyone had to put a butterfly or butterflies in their creation.

Here is my project which I changed to last minute due to some unfortunate happening that we can do without hearing about it...hehe...oye...hope you like that I made a tag! :)

Recipe:  I use this tag from a sizzix die cut from my friend Sis...then I outlined a printed paper to paste on it then I added some fringe, lace ribbon then tied it with a bit of pearl string...then I punched out a butterfly out of a dark pink card stock (not sure where it is from but from my stash) then I blinged it up with Sweet Pea glimmer mist (ty Donna! :) ) and also with some sparkles from CTMH then glued it down on the tag and then added some purple flowers (didn't think I would forget my purple did ya?)  and then I used one of the stamps from my Grunge Inspirations stamp set from Kinderstampo (I just love this set) and embossed the "SOAR" wtih silver embossing and then inked it up with some pink versa mark ink pad then popped dot it on the tag...and then finally pink ribbon in the hole of the tag...voila! pretty simple but pretty I think and it reminds me of spring instead of the winter blues...hehe

Thanks for stopping by as always...and don't forget to give some bloggy love and may you have a blessed day! :) Now your next stop is :  Ashley -

In His Love,
Be Inspired,
