Be sure to keep your eye open for a letter posted on the blogs and be sure to post comments as you go. Once you are done, please comment here and unscramble the letters to find out our destination. Now... some of the members couldn’t make the trip and didn’t post a letter. Let us know who couldn’t join us for an extra chance to win! Email your answers to and put LCOM Blog Hop in the subject line for a chance to win some great prizes.

Grab a drink and let’s get this party started!

Hope you liked my LO on spring, our Blog Hop theme! I am totally into banners lately and it was certainly fun creating one for the LO and I always add a touch of nature in my LOs. I also made a homemade ribbon flower and added a brad in the middle. Have fun with the blog hop. I will draw for a RAK for those leaving me a message, tell me what piece of nature I added in my LO. Good luck and get inspired by all the talented ladies on LCOM

They are back, spring must be here!

Last fall I showed a field full of Canada geese in my backyard. This morning, it's the first I see them back. Must be a sign of spring! I believe that this is a pair, a female and male.
