Blog HOP.......have fun with this!!!!


****** this blog hop begins at 9am 11Feb 2011.......i'll be saving lives at the center so my post is a little early!!! please check out all the blogs beginning at 9am on Friday!!!!! have fun and enjoy yourselves!!******
(i'm going to try to program this to "go live" at 9am.......wish me luck!!)



Okay.....this is my very first blog hop and i'm soooooo hoping i don't mess things up.....i am feeling a little wigged out about this!!!!! first off.... i'm just a crazy RN that loves to play with paper and glue! i do hope that someone will enjoy the markers and ranger distress ink! just leave me a comment.... and follow me.....YEAH!!!! would love to see some new faces....and i'm going to be following all the other blog posters!!!!!

A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! ( http://www.kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com/). If you are here from Jenny Johnson of Paper Crafting Crazy Me http://www.papercraftingcrazyme.blogspot/.com then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky! www.kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com. For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. I am representing the state of Missouri!

Missouri is the show me state and most of us like to be SHOWN just what you have to offer! Jefferson City is our state capital and is located in the middle of the state ...along the missouri river! I live approximately 30 minutes west of St. Louis, between the Missouri River and the Mississippi, so needless to say summers here are extremely HUMID!! sometimes upwards of 90% humidity and temps close to 110!!! needless to say, it's a STICKY heat!!!

Some fun places to check out nearby are The Magic House (a fun hands on museum for children), City Museum (an old building turned into a hands on museum/activity area for kids and adults. mainly made with old discards and found materials!..so much fun!) and a spectacular park...Forest Park in St. Louis....with a zoo, outdoor ice skating rink, horse stables. We also have a park named after Henry Shaw (noted philanthropist from England) (Shaw's Gardens) that has different floral exhibitions through out the year! A great place to visit.............oh.....almost forgot .....we have the St. Louis ARch.....gateway to the WEST!!


my project is about an outing to Forest Park on new years day!!! ice skating for the first time in years!!!! like the title states.....it's just like riding a bike!!! until you fall while posing for photos and break an arm.....(just a little setback!) the paper used was basic grey...max and whiskers! also my cricut cuts were from Winter Wonderland....the skates..cut multiple times on kraft cardstock and layered to give the illusion of chipboard. Also the title "just like riding a bike" was from Just Because cards! i had such fun with this layout! just love my family and friends and this was such a fun day.......even if i DID break my arm.....i kept going!!!

my blog candy is a package of american crafts markers and one ranger distress ink.....Broken China! what a beautiful color!! remember to post a comment and become a follower and i will draw the winner and post on monday! enjoy your weekend and i hope everyone gains some inspiration from each and all the blogs!

Please make sure to leave comments on all of the blogs for a chance to win a ton of different Grand Prizes on Getting Cricky's blog, from these great companies:Scrap N Tote, Scrap N Easel, Cri-Kits, Creative Charms, Memory Miser, Scrappy Chic Cafe, Loralie Designs, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps, Cricut Town, The Scrappin' Table, Piktails, and Pink by Design
Please make sure to visit ALL the blogs, as EVERY single blog will have fabulous giveaways (cricut cartridges, paper packs, copic markers, yourstory bundle, clear stamp sets, and tons more). Each blogger was extremely generous with their own personal giveaways

Next up on the blog hop is Kathy from Montana!!! Enjoy your trip across the 50 states!!

Hi there, I have been to Missouri several times on my travels. And boy that humidity can really get to ya! It's great for the skin, but not very comfortable. I'm sure you get used to it though. I'm so bummed I've never gotten to go to the zoo there, but when I go back, that will be the one place I make a point to visit. Heard it's one of the best! Love your project and thanks for the great blog candy too!

My grandma was from Missouri, and my grandpa was from Texas. He always claimed that he had captured her in the Ozarks where she ran wild. Anyway, I thought you might find that humorous & interesting! I could make a funny page with that story! :-) I am now a follower btw.

Great virtual tour Kathy - I think you did great on your first blog hop! I think I might never visit Missouri - lol just kidding -
i want to visit every state but when would be the best time to go - hate humidity and can't take it too cold (+15 is about my limit). Great layout and good for you ice skating - too bad you broke your arm but fun times with family makes it worth it almost :) I am a new follower and love what I have seen so far :)

I absolutely LOVE St. Louis! We used to visit relatives there twice a year for many years, and the zoo, Grant's Farm (they lived right around the corner), and so many other places are wonderful for visiting. We always went in late March and September, when it wasn't so humid!

Once you said humidity, that made me say ew! I won't be visiting your state anytime soon thats for sure. I look like a drowned rat with even a little humidity gets to me. LOL

I'm a new follower, and want to let you know that I have enjoyed every stop on this hop, its been a lot of fun learning about the different states.
