So without further ado, here are the details of the blog hop!!!!

1. You need to hop to every blog on the list.
2. Leave a comment on the Frosted Designs blog telling us that you completed the hop.
3. Complete a Quote project and link it up to the inlinkz on this post!  
Your project must contain all or part of this quote:
"It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all."  Author:  Laura Ingalls Wilder

For my project using this amazing quote, I decided to step out of my regular project of layouts and do a chipboard mini album! I had some fantastic pictures from our first trip to Cannon Beach, Oregon last month and it just reminded me of this quote. The simple things in life- sun, sand, waves crashing, salt water taffy, good local seafood. That is why I decided to take on this project! It took me a little longer than I had planned but I am really happy with the way it turned out! Check out my photos here! WARNING: THERE ARE ALOT! LOL

If I had the time I would sit here and list all the products and items I used, maybe one day I will go back and add them all! It was so much fun jumping back into making minis! I feel some major mojo going on right now!;) And as a thank you to my loyal followers and new friends, I am giving away a little rak of my own...check it out:

Lots of fun embellishments in here, even some homemade tags and also a few things I put together myself. I realize its kind of a girly color palette so sorry if you have boys :(
