(Blog Hop) It's Your Day......Pamper Yourself!! (and a giveaway)

Oh I am super excited about what I have in store for you today. Julie from Life with the Tucker and Wolek clan invited me to participate in a blog hop and I happily accepted. This will mark my FIRST blog hop and I am totally excited!!!!

We would like to Welcome you to the National No Housework Day Online Blog Hop!! If you have arrived not knowing until now about the hop, no problem.....just head on over to If It's Groovy and begin your hop there. You may find games, prizes, projects, and how do-you-dos along the path! We would appreciate it if you became a follower (but not necessary) and we would love your comments. :-)

You may have arrived here from Jana @ Scrapbook Abundance and that means you are on the right track. :-)

Hope that you enjoyed that stop and the others so far!!

We celebrate this national holiday by scrapping today and into the weekend with projects that remind us of housework or getting away from it!!! Take the day off, put up your feet and let's hop!

I invited my DT to play along with me so be sure to stop by and give them some comment love too! :-)


If I had a day of no housework or homework I would love to take a bath and relax, and drink some wine or heck at this point I would take a couple shots. LOL! (life has been stressful lately)

This card was super fun to create, the window with the glossy accents and the "bubbles" created using liquid pearls, and you can't see it very well but I smeared some liquid pearls on the tub to make it shimmery.


I love all the details in Debbie's LO! Super cute photo! :-)


WOW, what a stunning card from Courtney, love the colors! Just beautiful!!


Abby sure can rock those 2 page LO's. They totally intimidate me. LOL! LOVE all the details.


April says that if she had a day to herself she would love to spend it crafting!

Oh and now for the good stuff. THE GIVEAWAY!!!! All of the projects today used items from Artful Delight's April Monthly kit! How would you like a chance to win this month's kit? All ya have to do is become a follower and leave me a comment. The giveaway will end on April 10th at 11:59pm EST! WAHOOOO!!!
