VC Blog Hop #4 is HERE!!

Good morning (or whenever it is where you are right now ...) Yippee, it's time for the next VC Blog Hop again - this was supposed to be our last because our VC group only meets for the Spring and Summer, but we are hoping we can make this a monthly project -- it will be great for those of us in VC to keep in touch, and great for all our followers to see what we are creating just for our blog.  In case you don't know or have forgotten, VC is a group of stampers who love Stampin' Up! - and all things stampin' and scrappin' -- the name of our group is really VC_Rocks -- and we will be letting in new members in May - let me or one other gals know you are interested, but be warned -- we talk a LOT -- and have sooo much fun getting together online and sometimes in person!  Some of these gals are becoming my very good friends!! 


You probably came here from Kym's blog - www.artfulimagination.blogspot.com - if not, you can start at the beginning of our blog hop at www.vcrocks.blogspot.com -- the next blog on our list is Tessa's - you will want to see what Tessa has created at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/tessaboulter/blog - - you won't want to miss any of these awesome blogs this weekend!  There are 32 blogs plus our home page with 4 bloggers post there!!  Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!!!


Today's project came about because I needed a quick little gift - being short of time (and money and sense sometimes too), this was fast and easy for me.  I have had the box pattern for several years - not sure where I got it, but I like it.  I am posting 2 of the holders so you can see a couple different ideas ... the Lovely Lilac set (a retired color now) I did a few years ago and the Melon Mambo was this week's .... sorry to say that all the stamp sets and designer papers I used are now retired but you can use whatever you have on hand if you want - or again, contact me to order or for a new SU! Idea Book/Catalog ..... but the punches I used are still available!!



Here is my pattern ... hope it makes sense ... I thought I found it on SCS but when I went to find it again, I couldn't locate it -- so this is the best I can do.


I hope you enjoy my blog today - and always.  Leave me some feedback and I will draw a name to receive a little something from me.  Once again, your next stop will be Tessa at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/tessaboulter/blog 

Hugs and prayers for a wonderful day - God Bless you, Sassy Shirley
