Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop!




Hello everyone! Welcome to the FABULOUS blog hop to benefit Julie and helping her get her smile back! If you came here from Sankari's blog, you're on the right track! If not, you can start at the beginning at the Sweet Stamp Shop blog!

When Nicole asked me if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I was so thrilled. I am always happy to help out, especially if it's for a fellow scrapper, and in this case, it's for one who has a very huge heart herself. I'm sure you all have read about Julie's situation and understand why we are putting on this benefit for her. I for one do know how important it is to keep your smile, I myself have had dental issues recently and it is quite pricey when you have to pay for it out of your own pocket! Sometimes we put other things that seem to be more important money wise first. I know I do! I'm sure Julie does as well, but that is why we are here, to help her get her smile back! So Julie, I hope that when reading all of these posts today, it makes you smile, and hopefully soon, you will have those beautiful pearly whites that you once had before :-)

For my project today I had planned on making a beautiful little paper bag album. Well, due to some unforeseen situations here at home, I wasn't able to finish my album... BUT, I am going to be donating that album at the end of this hop to one lucky winner! I will post photos of it at the end of the hop. So sorry I wasn't able to post it sooner! It is valued at $35.

Since I didn't have that finished for you today, I did make a card, and this one was definitely inspired by Miss Julie :-)


For this little card, I used the Hello Beautiful stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop.

And just a little hint... the album that I am giving away... I am using the same "scheme" as this card... so yes, it will be FABULOUS! :-)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying the hop! Now hop on over to the Avocado Arts blog and see what they in store for you today!
