Lori Whitlock Spring Blog Hop


Happy Hump Day everyone, and welcome to the Lori Whitlock Spring Blog Hop!
What better way to get you over the middle-of-the-week hump than by having a little blog hop?! My fellow Design Team members and I have all been having so much fun putting together projects with Lori's new cutting files, and we are extremely excited to be sharing them with you today!

Now, you should have arrived here from JOY'S BLOG.

But if you are just joining in and want to start from the very beginning (that's a very good place to start), then hop on over to Lori's site HERE. And while you are there, don't forget to pick up...


Now, as you know, Easter is next weekend. And Mother's Day is right around the corner after Easter. With those holidays in mind, many of us have been making gifts and cards for our loved ones. And, you know, I was going to do just that for this hop. I really was. I had my Echo Park Dots and Stripes papers out, and I had plans (really) of making Lori's CHEST-OF-DRAWERS and filling it up with some Easter candies to show you. It would have been very pretty and pastel and perfect for Easter. But...I pulled out the last few pieces of my This & That papers from the Graceful collection, and I decided...
...
...
...gifts can wait, I want to make something for me!!! And that is exactly what I proceeded to do.

I decided to make Lori's Chest-of-Drawers for my scrap table. Even though it is made of paper, don't let it fool you. It is sturdy, and the drawers are nice and deep.


The drawers are the perfect size for holding buttons, brads and little bits and pieces of random things that I like to keep next to me when I am working on projects.



I kept my decorations and embellishments to a minimum, but there is certainly room on the sides and the top of this wonderful 3-D piece to let your imagination take charge.


Now, your next stop is NATALIE'S BLOG. But wait! Before you go, become a follower (if you aren't one already) and leave a comment. Why? Because you could win (by random drawing on Thursday night)...

That's right - Join. Comment. And you are automatically in the drawing for a chance to win. It's easy as pie.

(P.S. If you are looking for my Practical Scrappers project using bakers twine, it is the post right before this one.)
