Carson's Creations 8 Year Celebration

Today we are celebrating 8 years that Carson's Creations (That's Me) has been sharing. I remember when I first started so many years ago...I was a bit clueless (and my cards were quite different), but the crafty world invited me in and I have since made many lasting friendships over the years. We have shared ideas, chatted about techniques, planned blog hops together, been on the same design teams, and appreciated each other's talents and creativity while admiring across the miles.

There are only 8 stops and you won't want to miss any of them! There is also a complete line-up at the end of this post just in case you need it. 

What would a hop be without Blog Candy?!?! Since this is a celebration, each blog has a bit of candy that is randomly being given away. Yay for candy!

Here is how:
Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog.
If you are a follower, your comment could be randomly drawn to win some fantastic prizes. 

Here is my project:

At first, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to make for my celebration. I thought about a 3D project, some treat bags, and even tags popped into my mind. Then I remembered I had this awesome glitter paper by Core'dinations. It has been in my stash for quite some time, maybe not 8 years but a while.

I chose this MFT celebrate die since it seemed appropriate for the occasion. I love the font with the script letters too. It was super easy to cut and there was NO glitter mess!

I chose the heart balloon since it matched the hop header. Trying to tie everything together.

Since I had two cards in black, I went with the opposite for the last one. I used the die cut from the above card for this lower one. Clean and simple in white.

The prize being offered:
I might even throw in a few more crafting goodies as a special thank you.

Remember to win, you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!
You have until Sunday night, June 3rd at 9:00 pm EST to hop along with us! All winners will be announced on Monday, June 4th on each individual blog. The winners will also be posted on Carson's Creation Facebook page after all the winner's posts go live on each blog.

Here is the Blog Hop Line-up...

Thanks for celebrating with us today! Your next stop is Janis.
