Please scroll down for newer posts***

Today I'll be sharing two different projects with you. The first is my project for the IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils Blog Hop. The second project I'm presenting today is the Altered Pages' Featured Artist submission. I hope that you enjoy both of these projects that I've created!  

This week IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver Stencils are featuring a Blog Hop showcasing our fabulous products and providing some inspiration for you to get creative! And be sure to leave your comments on each artist's post that you visit for your chance to win a fabulous prize that includes IMAGINE Crafts and Dreamweaver products.

***Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture or the blog’s name) and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.
