Lots of Love Blog Hop with Sweet 'n Sassy!

Good morning!! There is some BIG NEWS being revealed over at Sweet 'n Sassy today!! SWEET 'N SASSY IS GOING COMPLETELY DIGITAL!! You will find the details of Korin's big announcement over at the Sweet 'n Sassy DIGI BLOG !!

We are celebrating this big news with the LOTS OF LOVE BLOG HOP!! I will also tell you that our design team is growing! You can meet all the new designers along the hop!! These ladies are amazingly talented...I feel honoured to be on a team with them all!

So, back to the hop! The theme of our hop is "LOVE"!! Each DT member will be showcasing a different Sweet 'n Sassy digital image. Now, since we all have been focusing lately on the new releases, we thought it would be fun to show you some of the older digital images available at Sweet 'n Sassy!! You will also have a mission...you must tally up the number of times the word "LOVE" appears on the DT's projects along the hop. Perhaps some of the designers have used it 20 times, and some maybe not at all!! So keep track, because there is fantastic PRIZE up for grabs!! One lucky hopper will win the entire January release of digital images! Feel free to leave comments on each designers blog, but make sure to hop back to the DIGI BLOG when you are finished to leave a comment with your answer!! Korin will be choosing a winner from the correct answers!! As an added bonus, you can grab the "I heart Sweet 'n Sassy Digis" blinkie from the blog and post it on your own blog...if you do, you will be the happy recipient of a FREEBIE!! You will again need to leave a comment on the DIGI BLOG with your email address so that Korin can confirm that you posted our blinkie!! Oh, there is just so much fun to be had today!


Oh yeah, my project!! I worked with the digital stamp "Noah's Ark". I was in the mood to create something other than a card, so I decided to make a door plaque. I had this wooden heart in my stash of craft items, and painted it white. I covered it in DP, sanded down the edges and embellished with Spellbinders Doodle Parts. I also added some pearls. I coloured "Noah's Ark" with Copic markers and pop-dotted it on the plaque. I made a "hanger" out of ribbon and added a bow (made with my Bow Easy!). I also added a smaller wooden tag covered in DP. On one side I wrote "Hush, Baby Sleeping"....the other side says "Baby Awake".




Although Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I chose to make this project with the love of a parent in mind. As a parent, we love our children unconditionally. There is nothing else that compares to this challenging, and yet most rewarding "job". To be responsible for another life, and to nurture that child until they are ready to go out in the world as an adult themselves is perhaps one of the most difficult things one may ever do. But, oh the blessings!

So, help us at Sweet 'n Sassy SPREAD THE LOVE!! Start over at the Digi Blog to find out the big announcement, then hop along to all the designers!

Have fun hopping!!
Melanie
