A Sunshine Hop!

"Jen's Sunshine" Blog Hop

This hop will remain open till Tuesday Sept.4th

Winners announced Sept. 7th
Today we take time to honor our friend and fellow crafter Jen Scull.  If you are here hopping with us, then I am sure you know Jen is battling breast cancer.  She has been fighting this nasty disease since February.  On behalf of Jen, we thank you for being here.

I love this word art from the set and wanted to showcase it, so I tweaked an old layout design and used some of my most favorite paper. Okay, I admit. I chose this paper because I needed to make sure I had ribbon that matched! LOL! Seriously though, it's some of my favorite by-the-sheet paper that I buy at Hobby Lobby. In fact, I think I'm due to get some more...I think this was my last scrap!

I love this edge punch by EK Success (Parisian) because it's so elegant--and because of all my border punches only the Fiskars and EK Success actually punch through my Papertrey Ink cardstock!

Well, that's it from now back to more information regarding the hop...or you can just continue on to your next stop Jacqy!
We ask as you hop along with us, please consider donating at least $1 using the paypal donation button at any stop along the way.  Your donation will go directly to Jen. Thank you.

It wouldn't be a hop without prizes.  To see a full list of the prizes up for grabs, please visit 

To be eligible to win a prize from our sponsors, collect the hidden letters located throughout the hop.  Once you spell out the secret phrase, please email Jenn Cochran at  This will get you entered to win one of several fabulous prizes.
Mister Linky's Magical Widgets -- Easy-Linky widget will appear right here!
