VC Rocks Blog Hop!

I'm very happy to be back posting on my blog again. I'm particularly excited that my first post is a stop on the VC Rocks Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Angela's blog. If you didn't, you can go back to the VC Rocks homepage. There are many talented stampers taking part this weekend and you won't want to miss any of them. Of course, you can also just start from here and go all the way around. I'll have a link to the next stop on the hop at the bottom of this post.


The theme of this hop is 'Have a Heart.' Each of us had to use at least one heart somewhere on our project. I have two projects for you this time. The first is an altered journal I made a few days ago. My demo had a customer appreciation night and this was the project we made. It was so much fun to see how different each of us made our books.
 

I wasn't sure what I was going to use the book for when I heard we'd be doing this project. Since then, I've realized how nice it will be to have a book I can carry with me to keep track of shopping lists. I'll note what I want and mark off when I buy it. I came to the conclusion that would be a good idea today, when I realized I have somehow managed to purchase two Concord Crush ink pads. I like the colour, but not that much! LOL.


The second project I have is a card. I decided to make a card because I remembered that a lovely couple from church is having their wedding anniversary this weekend. I also wanted to get back in the swing of things, challenge-wise. This card is for the following challenges:

Love the colors that you used for both projects. The shopping list is a great idea. I can't tell you how many items I have multiples of and not on purpose.
