Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop! Most of us would love to travel but are having staycations this year. What better way to travel but through a blog hop. This hop was inspired by our host Shawnee's journey across the United States as she traveled with her family to their new home. The United States is truly beautiful with many wonderful places to visit and see.

If you've hopped along from DELAWARE or you are just joining me from your dashboard or happened along from somewhere else, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start with the first state in the union, Delaware, because you won't want to miss out on any of the fun (or any of the blog candy!!)...

There is an AMAZING Grand Prize Package for one LUCKY hopper (winner chosen by Rafflecopter)!!  To be entered to win, please do the following:
So what's the Grand Prize???
Cricut Cartridge - Destinations, beautiful handmade flowers from Shannon at Creative Chaos Flowers, and a $20 Gift Certificate to Scraptastical Kreations.
Now on to my state and my project....please pardon the photo job, for some reason my camera was NOT cooperating with me to get these pictures!!

It's very difficult to fit all the wonderful things to see and do in Pennsylvania all into one project.  I tried to highlight some of the things I've done just recently.  The countryside is starting to change colors (unfortunately) to it's beautiful golds, reds and oranges and with it will come cooler weather.  That means sled riding, skiing and snowball battles are fast approaching.

For this project, I used everything from my stash.  The paper is all core'dinations (my fav) to create the single and double layer photo mats.  The letters are cut using SCAL2 using font ARIAL BLACK.  Where would I be without all my fonts??  To get my letters to be straight, I used the scrap piece the letters were cut from to line them up.

Now for the good stuff, BLOG CANDY.  I'm offering up a SURPRISE grab bag that's sure to help in your scrapbooking endeavors!!  To be eligible, please leave a comment on all 50 states to everyone know you've been there and if you like what you see on my blog, please become a follower!  The winner will be picked randomly on Sunday, Sept 18th and announced on my blog.

Now you can hop to the NEXT STATE IN THE UNION, New Jersey with Nancy!!  Remember to leave a comment on each state to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE!!
