Stamping Bella Chichibulie Blog Hop

Welcome to the Chichiboulie Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you didn't start the hop at the beginning, please go to Emily's blog. If you came from Angie's blog, you're right on track. If there's broken links and you get lost, here's a list of all the participants.

I just got my new Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper last week and had to use it. Lottie and Gussie make me think of Catherine (BFF) and I. I miss our undergraduate days where we would study, gossip, watch TV, and shop all day. Catherine is actually taking her GREs today to get into a doctorate program. She's been stressing...but I know she's gonna do great!

Paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Gina K
Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Pearls, Copics, Crystal Stickles, CTMH Ribbon, and MS Border Punch


This was the last time I saw Catherine...the day after her wedding. I'm so excited that she's coming home for Christmas and will get to spend the holidays down with her in Portland. Since she lives in West Virgina and I live in Washington, we only get to see each other about once a year. No one will ever replace Catherine...but there are days when I wish I had a Seattle best friend. I miss having someone to go shopping and get coffee with.


How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $25 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the Splitcoast forum. MWAH!

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Halloween tonight. Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to {Gabriela's blog}.
