Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3rd Edition of "Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop".  We're so glad you have joined us!  Julie has gathered together her friends and tons of sponsors to make this a GREAT event!
Here are our wonderful sponsors!
You'll be inspired by each stop of the hop.  The theme, "Lucky to Call You Friend" will be evident in the projects of Julie and her friends.  Many of the talented ladies have blog candy to give away on their blogs, so watch for that, and follow the individual rules on their blogs for how to win it.

Here is the complete hop list:

Beth - you are HERE
Corrie - go HERE next!

Here is what I created for this hop!
 I made this card with...what else...Girl Scout cookies!!  Well, not real ones, of course.  These awesome SVG files are from ScrappyDew.  Right now you can get 30% off of your entire purchase by using the code provided at THIS link!  Awesome deal, huh??  Anyway, here is a closeup of the cookies so you can see the embossing I did on them to make them look more realistic.  I even tried to coordinate the color of banner they are on with the box that the actual cookies come in.
The banner is tied together with the wonderful Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.

Do you want to know about the prizes, and how to win them?  Leave a comment on Julie's blog, with your email address, so she can send you the free digi paper that EVERYONE gets!  Leave a comment on each hop along the way.  Prizes will be hidden along the hop.

  14. Beth, this is SUCH a creative idea! I have spent the last 2 days giving away the many boxes of Girl Scout cookies that I ordered. I cannot say no to those sweet faces. But we do not NEED all these cookies. So, I gift them to co-workers, the fire department, the maintenance deparment, the pastor at church -- you get the idea. Thanks, Beth, for your constant inspiration and friendship!
