Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza Blog Hop

Welcome to the Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza! Yoiu should have just come from Wendy's blog. If you are just joining the hop and want to start from the beginning, please start at Dena's blogThis is going to be an amazing event! Many of you are familiar with Oprah Winfrey's famous "Favorite Things" show where audience members walk away with an array of fabulous gifts. It was always so fun to see how excited the audience members got with each giveaway. Well, if you've always wished you could sit in the audience of one of those show tapings, we have the next best thing for you!

Each participant in this hop is going to share a favorite of hers. It could be a craft-related item or a non-craft related item. In addition to that, each blogger is giving away blog candy! This means you have a chance to win at every stop!

Each blogger has her own rules for winning her blog candy, so please be sure to read the rules on each blog for a chance to win.

Without further ado, here is the project I created for this hop:

My favorite things to use on my layouts are brads.  I also like to use stamps so my Blog Candy is this Treasures clear stamp set from Close To My Heart:

To be entered into the BLOG CANDY drawing you must:
  • Be a follower of my blog
  • Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing, crafty or non crafty.
That's it, easy as pie.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today. Please be sure to hop on over to Ashley's blog to see what she has to share with you and for more blog candy fun! Happy hopping and good luck to you!

  5. what a cute LO. I use to use brads all the time too, then I found Candi , they look just like a brad but you dont have to pierce your paper.
    My favorite thing would have to be my srapbook house my hubby built for me on my birthday. its my get away space. I'm following you by email.

  6. Robin your LO is very pretty. I am a bradaholic LOL. My BFF gives me a bad time about it every time she sees me pick up a package at the store. LOL. I have so many things that are my favorite things that I change from day to day. I will say that my punches are one thing on the top of my list. I actually went all year (last year) as a New Year's resolution to not buy one punch all year. I did it, because I didn't have room for one more punch, but have changed my room and now have room for a few more. LOL I am a follower. tfs Tami
