Welcome to the Scrap to Treasure’s Blog Hop.

We are independent bloggers who love to craft like crazy and
show it all off, crafters from the sister group the “Krazy Crafting
Crew”, and even more crafters have joined this group to bring
you many ideas on what to do with those crazy scraps that
keep piling up! Our goal is to inspire you to go through your
stash and create! If you would like to join this team you are
welcome to share what you have too with new themes, swaps,
challenges and more every month. Just contact Robin or
Lissa if you are interested in hoppin’ and scrappin’ with scraps too!

If you have stumbled upon this hop, and would love to start from

Pam and you are here, at the beginning.

Buttercups and daisies- 
Oh the pretty flowers,
Coming ere the springtime
To tell of sunny hours.
While the trees are leafless,
While the fields are bare,
Buttercups and daisies
Spring up here and there.

I am hosting today's hop and I am offering some of my 
favorite things for blog candy.. 
2 mini composition books (I love to alter them) 2 rolls of
Prima ribbon, a cute Prima flower stem, American Crafts 
rub ons, and a little pink bling flower. One lucky hopper 
will win this. The only requirement is to comment on each 
blog, if you follow everyone too and come back to 
tell me I will give you 5 additional entries into the drawing.

For my project today I made this…

Here is a fun card I made all from paper scraps, I also 
used a little twine from the My Life in Arts' n Crafts store,
and a few resin bows from my random stash of supplies. 
I used a cloud embossing folder and sanded the blue 
paper so the white core shows through. Cutting files are
from the Silhouette store.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today,
enough to leave a little love. Our host (me) is
having a giveaway and a variety of blogs may be
offering some blog candy as well, they all have their own
wishes for you to win on their own blog, so don't forget
