Adorable layouts, love them all!! The embellishments and bling are the perfect touch on the page! I love doing both cards and layouts. Lately I have been doing a lot of cards and I would love to get back to doing some layouts to finish my albums! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the chance to win!

In order to be eligible for the grand prize you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop, as well as become a fan of Lisa's blog and of Scrapping with Lisa on Facebook. If you don’t do facebook, this won’t count against you for the grand prize, just let Lisa know that in your comment. You must do all this, it is mandatory in order to be eligible for the overall grand prize.

For this blog hop I wanted to share my LO's that I created to enter into the E2 contest that Cricut was running for the launch of the new E2...I of course didn't win one, but still had an enjoyable time entering and truly felt it was more of a challenge, than a contest, for me, cause I'm more of a card maker and rarely create scrap pages;0)

The first LO was completely created using my Gypsy along with various carts, I used "Opposites attract" for the sentiment, "Stretch your imagination" for the cake", I believe the balloons were from "Lyrical letters", the flowers were from "Accent essentials", and the scalloped circles were from "Storybook".......
 This LO pretty much speaks for itself....it was primarily done with my "Pooh and friends" and "Pooh Font set...I did use "Lyrical letters" and "A child's year" on this cart for a few of the cuts...lot's of inking, glossy accents on the cake and balloons, along with my loved stickles;0)......
 This last LO that I entered into the contest was made pretty  with my Imagine, which I don't use nearly enough, but love so very much...it needs calibrating and I rarely find time to dedicate to that process;0)...I used the "Gypsy font" {One of my favs;0)}, for the sentiment "Celebrate", "Mother's day bouquet" for the 3D flowers, Imagine cart used were "Yummy"...I even managed to sew a crinkled ribbon below the "Celebrate" sentiment, a technique that I've wanted to try for a long time;0)..............

    For the blog candy that I'm giving away....you have an opportunity to win this awesome magazine special by CardMaker...It offers you over 1100 quotes, ranging from, Holidays, Religious, to Words of wisdom 146 pages!!!....it's a must have for anyone out there looking for the perfect sentiment for that card for that special someone or even one of your favorite scrapbook pages...so many amazing sentiments to choose from, all in one place;0).

All I ask from you, for a chance to win this magazine is that you become a follower of my blog, if not one already...and that you leave me a nice comment, telling me what you prefer to do more of, cardmaking or scrapbooking;0).

See that's painless and what an awesome prize you might receive out of a few minutes of your time;0)

Good luck and enjoy the rest of this awesome hop. we're so thankful to have each and everyone of you hop along with us;0)

Your next blog is Melanie

Thanks for stopping in and may your day be blessed:0)
