HAPPY SATURDAY! Welcome to my blog and the Summer Themed Blog Hop for the weekend! If you've come from Jamie then you're in the right place. If you're here with me today and want to play along from the beginning, click HERE to start!

Since the weather hasn't been too good at helping get us all in the mood for summer-maybe this fun, sunny BLOG HOP will!

This layout is created from Quick Quotes products with a few additional ribbons/pom poms. It is part of a 2 page spread I taught at Scraps Galore.

Super sunny, huh?!

What's this Brynn?! Well-it's an AMAZING" invention from my friend Nicolette. She has a FABULOUS business with her mom and an eye for sewing. I fell in LOVE with these MUG HUGGERS and immediately had her custom make mine you'll see below. Then-I loved them SO much, I ordered them for EVERY participant we're having at our upcoming retreat next month! WOO HOO!

So-If I am lucky enough to have you as a follower maybe you'll be lucky enough to win this stylish and functional little gift! Winner will be announced Monday.

I'm photographing some of the DIVINE PRIZES I have in store for you for my 1,000 FOLLOWER CONTEST so be sure to watch for those details!

Thank you SO much for being here with me-you're welcome anytime! Cherie's waiting. See you again soon!
