Celebrating the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop



Welcome! This is the last (but not least!) stop on the hop. Thank you Kathy for asking me to co-organize this hop with you. It's been a great learning experience and we've helped some new bloggers gain more followers and have the pleasure of participating in a hop. It's something I dreamed about for a long time but never had the opportunity until recently. I'm happy to say this is my third hop in the last month. I'm on a roll!

If you’ve just arrived from Felisa's blog you’re in the right place.
To start from the beginning, please visit Carter’s Crafting Corner.


The hop began at 9:00 am today. Check back with us each day of the hop to see new projects on most of the participating blogs. You’ll have until Sunday, June 23rd at 6:00 pm (Central Time) to hop, follow each blog and leave some nice comments for a chance to win awesome prizes. The more you comment, the better your chances are of winning. Please note: individual participants may have additional entry rules and/or chances to win.

Here's my giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!


To qualify to win, you must:
  • follow each of the blogs in the hop
  • leave a comment on each blog
Here at CLDU you can gain one extra entry for each follow or share: 
  • follow this blog with bloglovin (the button is on my sidebar)
  • follow me on Pinterest
  • follow me on Twitter 
  • like my Facebook fan page
  • follow me on Instagram! My user name is laviebordeperry
  • share this post with friends. Let them know to leave a message telling me who sent them.
  • when you're all done, leave me one comment letting me know where you followed me and the user name you used at each one (so I can verify all your entries)
Each blog will announce their respective winners on Thursday June 27th. Winners will have one week to claim their prize(s).

  26. Hi, dear La-Vie! It is nice visiting with you again on this very special occasion -- the first Hop with Carter's CRafting Corner. Your card is spectacular, very "ka-pow" as my granddaughter would say. Love the bright vibrancy in the colors especially.

    I appreciate having been included in this fantastic group of crafters. Thank you for the invitation to join in!!

  29. I always love seeing your projects. Your work is so clean and balanced and always has charisma! I love the stitching inside the word July. And how cute is that firework stamp with the extra bling added?!! I'm a follower on all social media sites listed: Angel Chambers and AngelChambers73. Your extra blog candy is soooooo perfect for the 2 nephews my sister has ages 4 1/2 and 8, and will also come in handy as the new baby boy grows! You have pulled off an exciting and fun blog hop along with your co-conspirator! YAY! It was well worth staying up late for! :)
