Second Ever Imagine Blog Hop.!!

Hello to all my crafty friends,

First I just want to say Thank You to my super duper friend Sarah for asking me to be part of the second Imagine Nation Blog Hop. I had so much fun with the first one, and just could not pass up being in this one!
You should be arriving here from my friend Paula's at More than Favors, Didn't you just love her charm bracelet? She is so Super Talented!

For todays project I wanted to make some shirts, using iron-on sheets and the Imagine. Its super cool that now we can take images off the Imagine or just phrases from our Expression carts and wear them proudly. I made my daughter a shirt using Rock Princess, and even added some bling with the i-Rock.
She came home from school and instantly put it on, She was so happy. Then she went through the Rock Princess cartridge and started asking for more shirts. I think Im gonna let her do it herself. She knows thats special, cause the Imagine is off limits :) The pattern on the Rock Chick is from the Better Together Imagine cartridge. You do have to have a Imagine cartridge in and a Expression cartridge in for you to color on the image. For now. I do see this being a gypsy update here soon :)

I do recommend that you get good quality Fabric Transfers like Avery or HP. Trust me on this lol! Speed at 2, pressure at 3, and blade depth at 2.

I also saw Emma from My Creative Time, made a cute little tote using Kates Kitchen, I just knew I needed to make one as well. For the tote, I used Lovely Floral Lite cartridge along with Imagine cartridge Better Together. Did you know that Lovely Floral has SCRAP QUEEN and PAPER DIVA? Im gonna make alot of shirts here in the future. Now I did not bling this tote up, and you will see why later in the post.

Blog Candy? Yep, The tote bag above and the apron down below. I'm gonna leave the blinging and embellishing up to you! So you can make it your own! Perfect items for crops. Become a follower if you wish, and leave a comment and a way to contact you. will choose a winner on Monday! Now on to Haidee at Created2bunique...where Im sure your gonna be WOW'd!!!

If you lost along the way here is order of the hop!

Hello :) Wendi FINALLY checking in...

Hello from the silent one of this wonderful blog... Im Wendi *pageant waves*

Let me start by saying... I couldnt have a more wonderful friend than Meriah. Not only is she a TALENTED beyond measure card maker/ cricut diva / blogger ... but she has the biggest heart for those she loves.
Thank you Meriah for being my leaning post, voice, friend. You inspire me... not to mention... I have created a scrappin MONSTER with her! LOL!!! (yay!)

I apologize for my lack of participation in posting. I am a real person... I promise lol.
Life sometimes takes turns we are never expecting and it takes a while to get our feet firmly under us again. Its during these times that we learn the most about ourselves by how we work through these turns. Scrapbooking and the whole memory capturing process has always been my saving grace... such healing and therapeutic things come from it. Im slowly but surely getting back where its a comfort for me. (I know Meriah... its about timeuh! LOL) I have also learned that not all of our stories are going to be happy rainbows and butterflies but are the same part of our legacy as any. That is what this hobby is all about... and I miss that.
That said, I hope to start helping my BFF around here more... being more of a voice with her and not just a ghostly figure behind the scenes .*enter twilight zone music*..
Thank you to all of you who follow this blog and congratulations to those have come to learn what a wonderful person Meriah is.
Now.. lets have some fun :) ....
