Since this weekend is the Lovebirds Crop 'n Hop over at Birds of a Feather Kit Co., I want to share my Crop Challenge with you. One of my favorite movie quotes is, "There's just something about you that I like," from Santa Clause 2. Since this is a Lovebirds crop, I combined the two and came with my challenge. So, I want you to pick someone or something that you like/love and create a layout about the person or thing. To add a little twist, I want you to journal about WHY that person or thing is special in your life. Your journaling needs to be visible, and at least 20 words long....the rest is up to you!
Here is my layout for this challenge:

I used the February Birds of a Feather Kit and Extras to complete this layout about my kids. The minute I saw the FabScraps Tri-Circle Swirl Diecut Chipboard Frame I knew it would be perfect for pictures of my kids (since I have three). I left it "naked" because I loved the look of it against the browns and reds of the papers. To shake things up a little, I then added my journaling around the outside of the floral paper and it reads: These three make me laugh more, cry a lot harder, worry myself sick, lay awake at night, try harder to be a better person. These three make me see life in a whole different perspective. These three each carry a little piece of my heart with them where ever they go. These three give me hope, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Now, since this Blog Hop is part of the Birds of a Feather Kit Co. Lovebirds Crop, I've got a special treat for one lucky person who comments on this post: a $10 gift card to the Birds of a Feather Boutique! Since we are Hopping all weekend long, you have until Sunday night, at midnight, to leave me a comment. And since the crop challenges are due by the 15th (Wednesday), I will wait to post my blog winner around the 17th. You do not have to be a follower of my blog, but if you like what you see, I'd love for you to stick around and become a follower.

Now, since the Lovebirds Crop is going on all weekend, I'd love to have you join us for lots of fun challenges and games. Also, if you play along with us, you have a chance to win some super great prizes!

Okay, it's time to hop on over to Amy's blog to continue on with the fun! Remember, if you finish the entire hop, you are eligible for that darling Maya Road prize! Enjoy the rest of the crop and I sure hope you will join us over at the forums for a weekend full of scrapping, games and fun!
