Sept. 16th & 17th

Welcome to the “DOG gone FUN” BLOG HOP hosted by Haidee.  The theme of the hop is “DOG gone FUN” and 18 crafty ladies have come together to create projects based on this theme to remind you to rescue a dog! If you came here from Deb then you are in the right place. But if you didn't that's okay, go back to the beginning at Haidee  and hop along through with us. You don't want to miss any of these dog gone fun projects. Haidee is offering some awesome blog candy, an APPLE SHUFFLE and some other crafty items, so you definitely don’t want to miss out on the chance to grab some blog candy.

My project for the Hop is a Dog Chipboard Word Book. The Chipboard Word Book and Paper is by Bo Bunny.  It was fairly easy to cover the book with the paper.  I prefer tracing the letters onto the paper and then cutting them out.  I used the stickers to go with the paper, but I altered them and cut them apart.   I made this book for my friend, Cathy, as a little surprise since she so actively involved with Animal Rescue with Hawkeye and Friends as well as the Flyball With Canine Express. So, I had to make this little book for her and furpuppies.

In addition to the fabulous blog hop candy offered by Haidee,  I am offering blog candy, which is a little goodie bag with some Doggie Paper, Doggie stickers, a bottle of stickles, ink, small stamp and some miscellanous. 

Rules to be eligible for my Blog Candy:

(1) You MUST visit each blog on the hop, become a follower and leave a comment on every blog in the hop each day

(2) Leave a comment below on my blog

(3) Become a follower at "Craftin’ with Barbara”

Your Chipboard Word Book is adorable. I am slowing learning the scrapping stuff. You are really good with the colors.
I would appreciate hearing your advice for my (first) Chipboard Word Book. Nice to hop host with you.

Hi, Barbara! I just discovered your blog on this hop and am glad to become your newest follower. Your little doggie album is really cute! It will be even cuter with pictures added. Great job! Thanks for the inspiration and for the chance to win some new crafting goodies. I have been laid off for over 12 months so new goodies are hard to come by these days.
