Hello Sunshine, it's HOP TIME!!

Hello out there to all you blogging folks!!
Today is the start of a fun time -it's HOP TIME with CARDZTV BLOG HOP!! If you came here from KARENS blog...your right on track-otherwise you may want to go to the beginning over at Mary's blog and start from the start, so you don't miss a thing!!
Mary over at CARDZTV will be giving away blog candy to a follower of CARDZTV. And, I will be giving away blog candy too....(and you might even find a few others along the way)!
This HOP is an ANYTHING GOES hop, and it is also a two day hop, so make sure to stop by the CARDZTV BLOG again tomorrow for ANOTHER HOP !! I am thinking some fall colors would be nice...but not yet ready to get rid of summer either-so I combined the two! I used CARDZTV stamp set "PICTURE THIS" for my sentiment! It is a fun new set that is excellent for crafting, scrapbooking, cardmaking and even journaling...OK, .... it is a GREAT SET for any occasion, no matter what the craft is!!

I made this cute little popcorn box with a file from THE CUTTING CAFE - the file is: 
I cut this out on my new CRICUT EXPLORE....(loving this machine!!). I cut mine out smaller, but this comes with a large and small box! I also used one of the circle dies from MCT's die set BUNCH OF FUN CIRCLE DIES and added a few enamel dots from MME-Chalk Studio, including one on the SUNSHINE itself! Designer papers are from SU. I put candy in my box instead of popcorn...mostly because I liked the color!
NOW..on to my BLOG CANDY
I will be giving away one "PICTURE THIS" CARDZTV stamp sets to one lucky person on MONDAY!!
(I am sorry...due to high shipping costs, this candy is available to be won only to a US shipping address)

Make sure to leave a comment....and then hop on over to my DT sister MARIA'S blog!
(and here is the complete line-up for SATURDAY August 30th in case you get lost).




Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a beautiful SUNSHINEY day!!

The Cutting Cafe's new PLANNER file....

WOW!! I have to say that I am so excited about this file!! I want to make one for everyone....Regina from THE CUTTING CAFE has thought of everything on this PLANNER FILE-there are pages for anything you can think of....Monthly Bills, Contact, To Do get the picture!! ( and there are more add-on files too).

I made this first one for my new Daughter in Law. I think she will really like it!! This was so fun to put together-I will probably try to get some rings for the binding and then re-do the ribbons on the rings.
Here is a peek of the inside with all the tags for each section....
