Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza Blog Hop March 3-4 2012

Welcome to the Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza! Yoiu should have just come from Jennifer. If you are just joining the hop and want to start from the beginning, please start at Dena's blog .This 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:
I am a Junque Journal CRAZY!! I love to alter things to make them CUTE. My favorite thing to alter is composition books. They are perfect gifts for people to write in, and great sellers to at the Craft shows I participate in. I decided to try to use a couple of my FAVORITE things. One is OWLS. I wish I could have one as a pet!!! Two is GLITTER. Everything is better with bling. Third my CRICUT and carts. I don't know what I would do with out my cutter!!! Four is RIBBON. I don't think I EVER make anything without adding some ribbon to it. So there you have it. These are some of my Favorite things!!!! Don't you have that song in your head now :)

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today. I have blog candy that is ready to go to a GOOD home. Here is a picture of what you will get. I love embellishments so you will get stamps, chipboard, and ghost letters all from Heidi Swapp. All you have to do is 1. Become a follower of my blog. 2. Become a follower of my Facebook Craft page 3. Leave a comment with your info so that I can contact you when you win. Easy Pesy!!

Please be sure to hop on over to CELY to see what she has to share with you and for more blog candy fun! Happy hopping and good luck to you!

Below is the entire blog hop lineup in case you lose your way:

Hi Paula ... I'm OF COURSE a long-time follower, and love your work. Your altered composition book is no exception. It's crazy-pretty. I love owls too, though monkeys SHINE for me, LOL. Thank you for sharing the idea to make some of these for craft fairs.

Paula i love the journal book. I too like owls and that's what is on my blog. Not sure about having one as a pet, because I own 2 large macaw parrots and my house already has a lot of screaming loud birds. LOL But owls look like quiet birds. I love the owl that you put on the journal. It is a very cute one. New follower of blog and FB. tfs Tami

I am a new follower. I am not fond of owls but you have given me second thoughts on that. Your owl is cute and love the pattern. I haven't tried altered notebooks yet but have seen many designs. I am thinking of trying it and giving them away as gifts for Christmas to some of my crafting friends.

Such a cute owl journal! I love altering things too, but unfortunately, I don't have much patience for it. LOL! I gotta say I love, love, love ribbon, too! It's so hard for me to do guy cards because I can't use cute ribbon on them. BOO! LOL! Thanks so much for joining my hop!
