Blogapalooza Style!


Welcome to our Hop!

Chic Tags has teamed up with Media Butterflies to bring you a fantastic blog hop today.   There are many, MANY prizes and FREEBIES up for grabs along the way so be sure to visit each blog along the way.  It all ends at the Chic Tags blog, with  one amazing grand prize.  Veronica is so incredibly wonderful, and gracious, and she is extending that in a big way to one lucky hopper this week.  If you have arrived here from Corinne's blog then you're on the right track.  If this is your first stop on our hop, you'll want to go back to the Chic Tags blog to get your line up and follow along.

I have a layout using the recently released Road Trip Tags to share with you today.  The collection is perfect for all the photos I have of our recent trip to Calgary & Banff, Alberta for Spring Break.


I captured this shot while riding the gondola up Sunshine Mountain for the first time.  It's always so peaceful in the gondola.  There are barely any words spoken as everyone is always taking in the awe inspiring beauty of the magnificent snow capped mountains, the tall, full, beautiful spruce trees, and the glorious sunshine streaming all around. 



Despite the breath taking beauty there is a small bit of fear and anxiety as I anticipate the huge, steep hills that both terrify and electrify me at the top.  Journaling reads: I'm always a mix of excitement and anxiety as we go up the gondola.  So much beauty all around - but such big hills await."


To achieve that 3D effect on the Number Tag, I simply fussy cut out the arrow and used 3D foam adhesive to pop it up in the same spot it was cut from.

How about a giveaway?  One lucky winner from my blog will win themselves a package of Chic Tags recently released Birthday Cake collection.
Simply leave me a comment, along with your email address, and I will draw a winner on Thursday at 11:59PM EST.  All winners will be announced on the Social Media Butterflies blog on Friday, May 3rd.  Good luck!

Your next stop along our hop is Ellie.  Thanks for stopping by today, and playing along with us. Remember there are several prizes, and freebies along the hop, so be sure to stop at every blog along the way.  Happy Hopping friends!
