350 Cards & Gifts Blog Hop

Hello, Hello!  Welcome to Paper Crafts Magazine 350 Cards & Gifts blog hop!  I've been excited for this issue to come out for a long time.  See that little welcome to the neighborhood house on the cover? That's mine!  Yep, I'm on the cover!  :) 
Hopefully you've already picked your copy up, as it's full of paper crafted goodness!  Volume 1 of this special issue was a favorite for me and I already can't seem to put Volume 2 down.  It's nice and meaty - perfect for those upcoming summer vacations.

For the hop, you should have arrived here from Chan Vuong's blog.  We were asked to create a paper crafted birthday item.  
I used my trusty Silhouette Cameo and patterned papers from Echo Park's latest Bundle of Joy Boy kit to create this adorable little bag, perfect for a 1st birthday gift.  I think it's the perfect size to hold a gift card and small toy!

Here's the entire hop list, just for your reference!
