hopping with simple stories

welcome to my stop on the simple stories blog hop! we've teamed up the design team with some lucky facebook fans to inspire you with our creations using simple stories. if you've been following along the hop, you're here from cindy's blog. if you're starting here, make sure you hit all the other blogs before mine, especially the simple stories blog (wink, wink. some exciting announcements about CHA releases and well, some other cool news...).

make sure you leave a comment on ALL the blogs of our guest blog hoppers, the one with the most comments will win a collection pack of her choice! AND one commenter from that blog will also win a collection pack as well! don't worry, there's one more chance to win if you comment on the simple stories blog as well! here's the complete schedule:

  1. Simple Stories

  3. Simple Stories design team member,  Kim Holmes 
  4. Amanda Albright
  5. Cindy Pittman 
  6. Simple Stories design team member,  Emily Pitts  (you are here)

i made two tags for my stop, same quote, same design, different looks. i used the Year.o.graphy line, i love how flexible this line has been, you don't necessarily have to do month/year based projects with it. i hope you enjoy the rest of the hop, i know i'm excited to see what everyone else has done.




 






have a great weekend!
