Hello my crafty friends, today my friend Jo is celebrating her 1st year anniversary of her blog!  She is having a wonderful blog hop with awesome blog candy!! I'm the last stop on this hop so if you happened on my blog by chance please go to Jo's Scrap Shack and start there for a wonderful hop and wonderful blog candy.  If you came from Crafting with Creative M's blog then you are right on track!!

 Now in order for you to be eligible for Jo's blog candy, you have to follow each blog on this hop and leave some bloggy love.   I am offering blog candy too, so the winner of my blog candy will have a choice of a $10.00 gift card to JoAnn, Hobby Lobby or AC Moore!! I will chose a winner either Sunday evening or Monday morning using Random.org so make sure to leave a way for me to contact you!!! Good luck everyone and happy hopping!


                                 Jo's blog candy!!! There is some cool stuff in this picture!

Now on to my project...
I made a mini for Jo to celebrate her 1st year anniversary of her blog.  I used the hidden hinge binding system to bind my mini. The bright and fun papers I used are from DCWV Citrus Stack.  I also used the Stampin Up tab punch for the tabs on the tags in the mini's pockets.  There is lots of room for Jo to put pictures and embellishments in this mini, she can "chunk" it up if she wants too and it will still close. On the spine there is a chain with Jo's intital and she can hand lots of fun charms on this chain as well. I hand dyed seam binding to hang on the mini with Tim Holtz distress inks. For the front cover I used the Cricut cartridge Celebrate.  I left the inside blank so Jo could embellish it how ever she wishes.  This way she can use it for whatever celebration photos she wants.  I hope you have enjoyed the wonderful projects in this hop and don't forget to follow each blog and leave a comment to win Jo's wonderful blog candy and of course my blog candy. I want to thank you for hopping with us today and celebrating Jo's 1st blogoversary and I hope you have enjoyed my mini today.  Crafty hugs!! Brenda
