Prizes galore for participating in the Blog Hop this week!

All three participating companies in this week's Blog Hop will all be giving away 3 prize packages for leaving comments on the featured blog posts. Each day will we feature projects created by the artists from IMAGINE Crafts, Authentique Paper and May Arts. Simply visit their blogs and leave a comment on each post by midnight PST September 27th. We ‘ll randomly select three different blogs from the seven days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog as the winner.


Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.
