Paper Sweeties Baby Blog Hop!!!

Hello Friends!
Welcome to a very special event today here at Paper Sweeties!  All of us on the Design Team are here to help our very own sweetie, Jinny Newlin, celebrate the exciting news that she is expecting her third little bundle of joy!  We couldn't be any happier for Jinny!  We wish her and her sweet family many joys and blessings!

In honor of this joyous occasion, the designers of Paper Sweeties. decided to get together and host a Baby Blog Hop!  We all have created a little something 'sweet' to share with everyone today on our blogs. 
Here are  the sweet little projects that I came up with for Jinny...

 Just a quick explanation about my projects for I know this post is full of FUN info for the
blog hop!  I made a baby card and tag using sweet Prima paper.  The stamps are from Paper Sweeties using the stamp sets Fancy Monograms and Little Wishes!  The lollipops as seen above are rolled baby wash cloths placed on baby fork and spoon.
They were placed in cellophane bags and tied with huge buttons, ribbon and twine.  Aren't they
cute?  They make for a darling baby gift!  They were so FUN to make!
Now a few gifts are in store for you...yeah!:-)  So, how about we give out a few!  We have several different ways for you to be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Paper Sweeties and we will choose THREE lucky winners!  Winners will be announced on October 31st!

#1 - HOP along to all the Sweeties Teamies' blogs and find the 'hidden' letter somewhere in their blog post.  After you've completed all EIGHT stops, you'll have eight letters that spell out a word related to today's Baby Blog Hop.  Unscramble the letters to figure out the word and then CONTACT US to send in your guess!  (Don't leave your guess in a comment here or everyone else will see it!)
