Royal Blog Tour

Well the Tour is over but the projects remain! I'll be posting the sizes and all on these projects by Thursay! And I'll be back just a little later today with the winner of the blog candy. See you soon!

We've been months in the planning of this Tour and the day is finally here. What fun it has been to perouse the new catalog dreaming of the samples to be made with the new sets and picking out what each of us would use to tempt you! So with out further fanfare I'm happy to present to you my samples for the Tour.







When my eyes fell upon Pendant Park on that very first pass through the new Catty back in June, I knew this was a set I must have! So please take the next few minutes to see what I have come up with for you using this most BEAUTIFUL set. I know your journey for the next 3 days consists of lots of stops so I'm not going to slow you down by listing all the products used in these cards. But never fear, just bookmark my blog or better yet subscribe to my blog and as soon as the Tour is over I will post all the details of each of these cards all the way down to the dimensions of each layer! That way if you need this set us much as I did you can order and make these cards for yourself.














Thank you so much for stopping by, I know I must let you go know as you have many other stops on this royal journey that you have embarked upon. But please don't be a stranger return often, the Puppies and I would LOVE to see you again.
