Cuttlebug Challenge, Relax, Rejuvenate, Be Inspired!



I am so excited to be a part of another awesome Blog hop. This time WOW! is all I can say...I hope you are ready for some absolutely fab. prizes, inspiration and lots of fun!
So I am sure by now you know what to do...if for some reason this is your first stop go to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to begin so you can collect all the flowers from the beginning.

Alright now what flower are you collecting here?... One of my all time favorites, the Calla lily. Oh how I love these flowers! They are so elegant and beautiful. Just looking at them makes me relax.

Other things I do to relax is listen to music...I turn it up real loud and just dance and act crazy for a little while. Really helps unwind. Another thing I like to do is my crafts. It takes the focus off the stress and onto something I really enjoy. So those are a few things I like to do.

Your next stop on the hop will be the very talented and sweet ALLISON.
Have fun collecting all the flowers and remember we will be partying all weekend so come back and join us for all the fun!

Also be sure to sign up as a follower of my blog and leave me a comment to be eligible to win some fab. prizes during the blog hop.

Claudia Rosa said...

Dear Jenn, what a wonderful blog you have!
i love the colors and of course your cards are beautiful.
thank you for visiting me over on my blog and for your question.
you know i am not that happy with my dark hair lol so i am going to order more copic markers - as it would help hahaha.. sometimes iam happy the way it turns out with the colors i have. i think it is all about the day i color in.
anyhow.. i use for the dark hair all Warm Greys' currently i have W0, W2, W3, W4, W5 and W7. However i think it still does look a tick too grey.. so i am going to order W9 to make it even darker. I never have ANY white spots on my hair.. what appears to be white is the color W0 and W2
does this help you?
hugs
