VC Rocks Have A Heart Blog Hop

 Hello stampers,
     Welcome to the 1st blog hop of VC Rocks 2012, I am stop 26. Our theme this hop is to use at least 1 heart in our project. My theme includes the hearts but leans towards a patriotic/military theme for 2 reasons.1. May is Military Appeciation Month, so there are designated days throughout the month, today happens to be Armed Forces Day, which is celebrated in several nations. Have you thanked a loved one or someone you know for their service today? 2. In just over a week is Memorial Day, a day to reflect on those who have passed protecting the freedoms we so enjoy today.
     If you don't know what VC Rocks is, please check out our blog for more info and to see the entire list of blog hop participants in case of broken links. You have until the end of the month to join if you want to have lots & lots of fun, however, we can facilitate LOTS of emails, so BEWARE!
     If you are following along the hop from the beginning, you should have come from Carolyn's site-Inking the Night Away her card is beautiful!
     I haven't quite decided if I will use this 1st project on a scrapbook page yet or not, I guess I could use it as a hidden journaling block if I so choose.
