Giving Back Blog Hop

Welcome to the Giving Back Blog Hop! We wanted to give back to the person who has given so much to us! So, this is in honor of Erica from My Cricut Craftroom.

 I had the chance to meet Erica over the summer and she is so much fun and she really does like to give. So on this blog hop we are Giving back to her. :)

You should have come from Pattie blog. . If you are starting at my blog, you will want to start with Kat’s Blog at  so you don’t miss any of the great layouts. When you get done hopping, you will want to go to Erica’s Facebook Page ( and leave a comment on her page. We will be randomly selecting someone from those comments to win blog candy.

For my layout I made a christmas themed one. Erica's favorite time of year is Christmas and I love to call her Santa Erica.

I love the way it came out and I hope Erica loves it. I know some of you might think what is up with the photo of the colors in the sink. This was something that Erica and I did. 2 girls having fun. Summer of 2011 for me was a blast.

The next stop on the hop is Connie.

Thank you for hopping
Stay Crafty
