Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to stop #10 of the Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop!  The hop runs from April 30th through May 2nd.  You may have hopped on over from Dawnmarie's blog - didn't you just love all of the fabulous things she did with the new Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper?  If this is your first stop, don't worry!  The blogs are linked full-circle, so you can find your way through the entire hop.  You can find the complete list of the blogs in this post at SA.
