B.F.F. Blog Hop - Inspirations of The Heart

Hey Everyone!

I first want to say Congratulations to Felicia over at Scrapper in the Making for reaching over 100 followers and Thank You, Felicia, for inviting me to be a part of your celebratory BFF Blog Hop!  I am so excited to be a part of this hop.  There is a lot of talent on this hop and I am ever so grateful to be a part of this.  Make sure you start at the beginning and follow along.  If you just came from Ruthie's blog, you are in the right spot!  If your lost, the hop list is at the end of my post.

Also, Felicia has been celebrating all week long, so make sure you check out her blog and enter for each day's giveaway this past week!  She's got some cool blog candy that you won't want to miss.

Now on to the hop....  Warning....This post is going to be a little picture heavy because I decided to make a LOVE mini-album from BoBunny.  The mini album features my all time favorite stack...Mariposa!  I love this stack!  The theme of the this blog hop is Best Friends Forever - Inspirations of the Heart.  So my project is dedicated to my mother, my best friend and my inspiration as well as my daughter who constantly inspires me to be better!  My daughter is my mom's first and only grandchild, so this mini-album will be filled primarily with photos of her with a few miscellaneous photos of myself, my mom, my siblings and our dog, Karma.

I hope you enjoy this project.  It means a lot to me and it is primarily done, but I am sure I will continue to add more as I incorporate the photos and journaling bits into the project.  Please let me know what you think!!

Here is the line up for the hop:

Nicole - (you are HERE)
Agnes -

Your next stop is Agnes!

Of course, what is a hop without candy!  For a chance to win, please leave a comment telling me who or what inspires you the most!  If you like what you see, feel free to follow me.  You do not have to be a follower to win. :)
