My Favorite Things Blog Hop

Hi friends and followers and welcome to my very first blog hop! Thank you so much for sharing my birthday with me!!!! I'm so excited about hosting this blog hop, although I think I just may have bit off more than I can chew because I have SO MANY FAVORITE THINGS!!!!!!

What I decided to do for my post is to post some of my most favorite layouts and then share some pictures of my favorite people! I hope you enjoy.

Okay, first, this layout was made for this hop. I don't know about any of you but I'm pretty much nonfunctional without that first cup of coffee. If I'm lucky enough, I get to have a Starbucks coffee and that's like a big treat!


For this project, I cut out a Starbucks cup with an emblem that I found on the net. I was able to use my Cricut to cut this project. So much fun. I then took a coffee cup and dipped it in coffee and then stained the paper at the top with the coffee stains. I cut the lettering using the Plantin School Book cart at 2 inches. I looked through all of my pictures but couldn't find one of me actually drinking coffee, LOL, so that will come later!

Next, this is the first project I made with my Cricut Expression. I'm a huge fan of New Kids on the Block. In 2008, as most of you know, they reunited and so I went to the reunion show and was able to meet them. It was so much fun. So this layout was from then. It's another one of my favorites.


The next couple layouts are just some that I had fun doing. I loved the colors and the pictures that I used for each of them.

This first one was from 2008. My very best friend and I planned a girl's weekend in Las Vegas. We were sitting in the car waiting to go over Hoover Dam and so I took a picture of my freshly pedicured feet! Cute huh??? I love it!


This layout is a picture of my sweet little angel, Catelynn. She was 2 in this picture. I just love the contrast between the colors and the black and white. She's a great model because she loves to have her picture taken. Even now at 7 years old, she still loves to be in front of the camera!


These next pictures are just some of my favorite people.

My 15-year-old daughter, Alissa


My 10-year-old son, Brandon


My 7-year-old daughter, Catelynn


My 5-year-old son, Dylon


Our family, Me, Alissa, Catelynn, Brandon, Dylon and my husband, Mark at the corn field maze.
