Creating Blog Hops Cafe HOP!!

Happy Saturday
Welcome to this months Blog Hop
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'
This month we have made some Mini Albums to share with you. If you have just stopped by to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our Hostess, Robin Lane with Create-A-LatteWe would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.
So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.
For my project, I made a small Easter mini with the chipboard mini shapes I got when I purchased the Cricut Artiste cartridge Bundle from Close To My Heart.  I used the Artiste cartridge to cut the papers out to cover the chipboard mini as well, fit perfectly.
I made the flower with the Artbooking cart and Art Philosophy, I believe and the pieces for the chickie, were actually  a leaf from Create a Critter, the beak was from CAC too, from a mushroom cut and the chickie feet are actually acorn tops from the same cartridge.

The papers I used were from a paper pad I bought at a local discount store...

And this is my little mini:)   It was fun making it, and the papers are so fun and cute.  so now you can continue on with the hop make sure to give all the girls some love, I am sure they all worked hard on their projects, and besides..who doesn't need lovin"??
