Becky's Sweet Creations Boy/Girl Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to Becky's Sweet Creations 2 Day Boy/Girl Blog Hop! This weekend we're going to be sharing with you a variety of boy and girl-themed projects that our design team has created. This is our first hop as a design team, and we're so excited to have you with us. Thanks so much for joining us! :)

If you came from Becky's blog then you're in the right place! If you're new to the hop and would like to start at the beginning, you can also visit Becky's blog since hers is the first in the lineup. :)

Here's the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way: 

Ashley @ Made Especially For You     <---------- You are here

Lisa @ Lisa's Creative Niche

Laura @ Laura's Crafts and More 

I've been experimenting with pop-up cards recently, and the card I'm going to show you is about as simple as a pop-up card can get. :) It was the first one I made and since it relates to the "girl" portion of the hop, I thought it'd be perfect. Tomorrow I'll be sharing with you a more complex pop-up card I made that relates to the "boy" portion. :)

What fun would a blog hop be without blog candy?! :) I had so much fun searching through my stash 
looking for boy/girl-themed goodies to giveaway. Luckily I found more than I thought I would! :)

- 12 sheets of 6x6 "boy" themed patterned paper
- Assorted brads in pastel colors
- 'baby' glittered chipboard letters in blue and pink
- Assorted punches
- Assorted chipboard embellishments in pastel colors (perfect for both cards and scrapbooking!)

Here's what you have to do to enter:

1.) Become a follower (if you aren't already)
2.) Comment on a post on either day of the hop (you'll be entered a second time if you comment both days)
3.) Leave a form of contact information in case you're the winner!

The winner will be chosen on Monday October 10th using I can't wait to give away the goodies! :)

Your next stop is Lisa's blog! Thanks so much for hopping along with us, make sure to stop by tomorrow, too! :)
