Love and Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first Sketch~n~Scrap Blog Hop "Love grows where the heart is...", including a bonus sketch! Become a follower of the Sketch~n~Scrap blog for a chance to win (or if you are already a follower, leave a comment on the main blog letting us know). And for a twist - there is a special phrase for you to decipher along the way so make sure to collect the bolded words on each person's blog (hint - visit everyone in the order they are listed). Once you have completed the phrase EMAIL it to sketchnscrap@gmail.com, for another chance at the grand prize! Don't delay, the blog hop ends on February 14th and winners will be announced on February 15th.

If you have come here from Crystal's blog, then you are on the right path, If you have lost your place you can go back to the main blog here. So without further ado here is my take on the sketch.
This is a layout of my Aunt that passed away August 2012. I would say she was like a mother figure for me but she was sooo much more than that, she was my friend. I could talk to her about anything and I mean ANYthing and she always offered sage advice. In her prime she was fun to hang out with and was a big flirt. So with the theme of "Love grows where the heart is...", my heart can't grow any larger than for the love that I have for my Aunt Bert. I use to stress when using a sketch to get my layout to look exactly like the sketch but now I can look at a sketch purely for inspiration and get my layouts done even quicker.
Webster's Pages Girl Land papers and embellies, Silhouette cuts

As a special treat I am offering a little blog candy of my own.

Basic Grey True Love 6x6 paper pad, K&Co pebbles, 12 yd baker's twine, studio g stamps, wooden thank you stamp, pink bling, mini photo frame, and a box of sweetheart converstation candy


Just leave a comment here for a chance to win (you don't have to become a follower of mine but I would love it if you do and if not now maybe you will in the future).

Next along the hop is Amy with a layout and inspiration I am sure you will love. Thank you for joining us!

I hardly drop responses, but i did some searching and wound up here "Love and Blog Hop!".
And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like some of the remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of all of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
