Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Opening Blog Hop

Hello, friends:}


**Click HERE for my GKD Inspirational hop using Tami Mayberry's images!
Today is a FABULOUS day!! I cannot wait to share my creation with you...but first....today is the Sweet Stamp Shop Grand Opening Blog Hop!! If you came here from Teri Anderson's blog [this is going to be a tough act to follow--Teri is AMAZING!!!]--you are in the right place! If not, be sure to stop by the SSS blog for the complete list of participants and hop along!


Today is fabulous because of the hop--but also because I get to share a project I've been working on for the past week! I looooooove it! I wanted to share something BIG for the SSS blog hop, so I made my very first TUTORIAL! ACK:) I used my SSS Gnomies, Hello Beautiful, Melvin & Vernie, and Scootin' By stamp sets. My project is a puppet theatre.
Here is a still picture of my puppet theatre. 

Here is my video tutorial! You can check out other videos/tutorials by the SSS HERE on YouTube. 
Today is also fabulous because it's my birthday!!! HOOOORAY!!  What a great way to celebrate! So be sure to continue reading {post below}--there are lots of ways to win my giveaways today!!! 


And speaking of giveaways--be sure to stop along each blog on this SSS Grand Opening Blog Hop because there are HIDDEN CODES! Some blogs have hidden codes that are good for your purchases at SSS shop! LOVE it! So be sure to look for these codes through the blog hop!
Coupon codes are good August 5th - August 8th


And be sure to stop by all the blogs on the hop and leave a little love because you could win some stamp set prizes!! You have until Monday, August 8th to comment to be entered to win. Winners will be randomly selected from random blog and announced Wednesday the 10th on the SSS blog.


The SSS team would also like to invite you to join these sites:::


That's it for me today--but head on over to AMY TSURUTA's blog! You are going to have your socks knocked off with her creation! LOVE it!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
