Well OWL Be Blog Hop

Welcome to the 
Highly Anticipated
"Well OWL Be"
it's Heather Lynn's 1st
Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Ashley then you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled into the hop and want to start from the beginning, go HERE!
First I would like to say Thank you to Heather for letting me join in on her 1st hop. I have really enjoyed getting to know the ladies on this hop and have gained some new friends.  
Today is the day that Heather Lynn's love for everything OWLS is showcased through the creative talent of her friends at each 
Blog Hop Stop! If you love OWLS as much as Heather does,you won't want to miss a single project. Each person in the hop has dedicated their time to creating any project they wanted as long as it included OWLS!

I to am addicted to OWLS. As you can see my banner on my blog is owls, and my Facebook Craft page is Owl themed as well. So when I saw this blog hop being put together, I HAD TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN!! I hope you have enjoyed all the stops and gorgeous projects along the way.
Here is my project to get you inspired. It was real easy to make this mini. All you need is ONE 12 x 12 piece of cardstock to make the album, then any scraps you have laying around to make the mats inside. I cute an owl out with my cricut from Hoot N' Holler cartridge. Then added some feathers, flowers, and bling to the front cover. Each page is open at the top and holds a tag that can be pulled out for added journaling or photos. I just did simple scalloped mats for the inside with some embellishments. Great mini to give to a birthday girl so that she can add her birthday party photos afterwards.

If you would like to see the video that I got the instructions from to make this cute mini then you can go here.

I also made a notepad holder with a cute little owl on the front. Simple project, but I had to share!!!

I'm sure you have seen all the wonderful candy up for grabs along the way. My candy is going to be the mini that I featured in the blog hop. I will use to help me get a winner to those who comment on my post. I will ship you this mini to use for yourself or give away as a gift.

Now you will HOP over to see what Erica has for you.

Here is the HOP Lineup in case you get lost along the way

Jenny, I had a notepad that was shaped like a purse, so I just used some paper and traced it to make the holder for it to fit inside. super simple , then I just fixed the front of the holder up with the owl and ribbon. I'm glad you liked it. :0

Ok this is the second mini I have seen today that has made me reconsider the whole mini thing. I have never been a fan of them, but I think that opinion has been changed.

This is too cute and perfect for anyone female of any age. Who would not smile when they look at this.
