The Sampler Blog Hop

Hi all!!!  Welcome to The Sampler's Blog Hop

You should have arrived from the amazingly talented Shaunna's Blog.  The Design Team wants to give back to the fans with inspiration and prizes!  We've decided to take a simple  embellishment and use as our focus for this hop - brads.  Something all scrappers have!  The Design Team also used the fabulous April kit from The Sampler....check it out here!

I wanted to use brads to create a banner on my layout:

I simply created the shape by using brads then strung fabulous October Afternoon twine (also in the April Sampler Kit) to create my banner.  This layout was so fun to put together, it features my turkeys Ed, Ede, and Eddie.  Ede has went to live at another home now (can you say to much testosterone in the barnyard!). I  hatched these boys in an incubator, so I'm very proud of how they've turned out.  

Each member of the Design Team is having a giveaway on their blog!  We are giving away a "sampling" of The Sampler along each of the stops.  So for my giveaway, just leave a comment and I'll randomly pick a winner.  You have the entire week, until Friday May 4th , to play along with our hop!

Here's the Blog Hop order:

Amber = You Are Here!
Amy S
Amy C
The Sampler

I also want to mention The Sampler Card & Sketch Challenge going on at The Sampler.  We'd love to have you play along!  And there's prizes involved!

The next stop along the hop, the fabulous Amy S!!!  Enjoy!!!
