C'est Magnifique Blog Hop~!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop!! If you arrived here from the Webster's Pages blog, then you're right on track! OR, if you just happened upon my blog, you can start from the beginning of the hop HERE at the C'est Magnifique Kits blog. Why? Because there are a TON of amazing prizes to be won and plenty of scrappy inspiration along the way and you definitely don't want to miss out on any of it~!!

Blog Hop Order:

For those of you who are visiting my blog for the first time, my name is Erin Blegen and I've been a proud member of the C'est Magnifique Design Team since April 2012. If you are new to C'est Magnifique, then you are definitely in for a treat! Just look at the fabulous May kit "Spring's Portrait":

We have papers from the "Invitation" collection from Les Papiers de Pandore and even some "Modern Romance" from Webster's Pages!

And we all love add-ons! Check out the gorgeous Flower Add-On:

And of course the always amazing Embellishment Add-On:

How about some projects?? I have two to share!

"To Be Treasured"
After capturing this photo of my two boys on Easter, I was a little worried about finding a way to scrap it in color. But upon seeing the beautiful May kit, I was so excited because I knew I would be able to get it done! SO many colors and options with this kit makes for so much versatility!

From the Flower Add-On:
Manor House: Winters Song: White
Webster's Pages: Perfect Petals: Park Drive
Prima: Lifetime: Mini Stem Roses
Prima: Lifetime: Roses

From the Embellishment Add-On:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam: Smooches
Blue Fern Studios: Chipboard: Lattice Fence
"Altered Box"
 I am loving doing altered projects at this moment, and this box was such a fun treat to put together! I think that "busier" patterns work great on projects like these, so I took advantage of this gorgeous paper from Les Papiers de Pandore before tackling the cluster work up top. As we draw nearer to Mother's Day, I thought this would be a nice gift for my mom...or maybe even my mother-in-law (depending on my mood- ha!).




 From the Flower Add-On:
Manor House: Winters Song: White
Prima: Lifetime: Fabric Flowers: Green
Prima: Lifetime: Mini Stem Roses
Prima: Lifetime: Roses

From the Embellishment Add-On:
Pink Paislee: Artisan Chipboard: Stars
Webster's Pages: Perfect Accents: Nesting Birds

Okay~! So on to the prizes! Thus far, you've seen some amazing giveaways (oh, and there are LOTS more to come!) and being a lover of giveaways myself, I'm offering up a little something too~!! Have a look:
 Lots of {mostly} NEW Prima- and I just had to throw in a package of my coveted Corine flowers ;)

**To be eligible for my giveaway**

1.) If you are not already a follower, please become one! I'd love it if you'd follow me via Bloglovin since Google Reader will unfortunately be going away in a couple of months :(.  
Just look for this image in my left sidebar to follow:
It's super easy, user-friendly, and it seems to be the route most people are starting to take. AND thanks to a couple of friends, I am happy to say that you can transfer ALL of the blogs you are currently following through Google Reader into your Bloglovin account. So if you don't have a Bloglovin account currently, just go ahead and follow me via Google Reader and then transfer over when you do! EASY.
 Thank-you!

2.) Leave me a comment here and let me know if you are a new follower, or if you're already one of amazing scrappy friends :).

That's it! As always, my giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY~!!

You have until midnight {US EST} on Sunday, April 28th to complete the Blog Hop, with the winners to be posted shortly thereafter. As long as you have left a comment on each blog listed and are a follower, you will be eligible for the amazing prizes along the way~!!
So keep on going! Your next stop along the way is Keren Tamir!
