Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop


Welcome to the 3rd Edition of "Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop".  We're so glad you have joined us!  Julie has gathered together her friends and tons of sponsors to make this a GREAT event!
Here are our wonderful sponsors!

You'll be inspired by each stop of the hop.  The theme, "Lucky to Call You Friend" will be evident in the projects of Julie and her friends.  Many of the talented ladies have blog candy to give away on their blogs, so watch for that, and follow the individual rules on their blogs for how to win it.


Here is what I created for the hop:


I used Unity Stamp Co stamps.  The sentiment is from an old SOTM from 2012 and the girl is an itty bitty called "Faceless Beauty".
