Jo’s Scrap Shack ~ 4th Anniversary Blog Hop!!

Thanks so much for stopping by to help us celebrate 4 years of crafting fun at Jo's Scrap Shack!!! 

You should have arrived at my blog from my dear DT friend Tina's blog. Here is what I created for the Blog Hop. 
I made a little holder to keep my cards in. I believe I first saw this on a Stampin' Up blog. I recreated it using one of my favorite Close to My Heart paper packs. I am trying to use my own handwriting a little more (I am sooooo bad at journaling in my scrapbooks...) so I used Kirarina WiNK to write the category names. My plan was to use grommets on the sides where I put the ribbon through but my Crop A Dile broke!?! So instead I used a piece of tape to make the threading easier. 
I didn't think to check the number of folds and holes to make sure my ribbon ended up on the outside for both ends when creating the template...oops! But with everything going on this week (death in the family) I don't have time to take it apart and redo it....so I just choose a hole in the center to skip. And you really can't tell once it's completed. 

We have some AMAZING sponsors and prizes for everyone who participates in the Blogaversary!

Jo's Scrap Shack - $15 Silhouette Store ~ Scrapper's Delight's - 3 Digital Stamps ~ DoubleClick Connections- 3 bags of Skittles ~ Sunny Studio Stamps- $20 gift voucher ~ Little Blue Button Stamps- $15 gift voucher ~ Lawn Fawn- 1 Stamp Set & a 6x6 paper pad ~ Bugaboo Digital Stamps- $30 gift voucher.

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for my mom and all she has taught me and shared with me over the years. She was blessed to have lived to be 88 years young and was able to do so much in her life. And she touched so many people with her love and kindness over the years. I pray I am able to be half the woman she was!
