Happy Anniversary TPV!!

Welcome to The Paper Variety's one year anniversary celebration! We will be having 5 daily challenges this week throughout the celebration. And there will be 5 great prizes awarded to 5 random winners. Our theme this week is all about our "favorite things"! Please join us each day to see the great projects that the team came up with.

Today's fun starts with a blog hop. If you have come to my blog from
Rachel's blog, you are right on track. If you are just visiting my blog, thank you, but you will want to start at the beginning at The Paper Variety's blog. Our 1st challenge is sponsored by My Favorite Things stamps. Each designer chose an image or stamp to create their project for our hop. Make sure to hop to all 12 designers on this hop and check out the awesome projects that were created using MFT stamps. There are also many dt members also offering blog candy of their own.

Our first of the 5 challenges is to create a paper project including stamps - clear stamps, rubber stamps, image stamps, sentiment stamps. My Favorite Things stamps is awarding a random challenge winner with a $25 gift voucher to their store!


You'll have until Tuesday noon to enter your project TPV for a chance at the voucher prize.

For my project, I created a card. I chose a digital image from
MFT called Amanda Baird's Love Birds. These birds are just so cute. I couldn't resist. Thank you, MFT!

I have already given this card to my boyfriend. We have had a tough week, with not much going right. It was a nice pick-me-up for him.

Now, before you head to the next stop on the hop, I have some blog candy to giveaway!


I am offering a $15 Michael's gift card. You do not need to enter the challenges at TPV to win my blog candy, but I do hope that you will help us celebrate by creating a project. To win my blog candy, all you have to do is become a follower and leave a message on this post. I will choose and announce a random winner on Tuesday, September 13. Dont forget, there will be other challenges and prizes daily until Sunday at The Paper Variety inspiring you to use your favorite things! Check out TPV at our Facebook page for an additional giveaway there as well.

To continue on our hop, head over to
Sandi's blog. You are going to love the project she created with her MFT stamps.
