Theresa said...

I would love to try some of those sprays!! Hope they are as sparkly as their H2Os!!!! Great stuff here on your blog!

Maureen Hayes said...

I've got to tell you the truth, I was never all that into ATC's becaus I really didn't have anyone to trade with, couldn't come up with any great ideas for decorating them, etc. . . During the blog hop I saw so many phenomenal examples that now I am excited to try making one, I will be checking out your YouTube videos as well. Even though I didn't "win" on the blog hop, I feel like I won anyway because I learned so much and found so many great new blogs and inspirations! Thanks for offering it.

rlovew said...
