Busy Beauties Blog Hop


It's time for another Busy Beauties blog hop. There were several images released once again so it was hard to decide what to work up for the blog hop. I decided to make an explosion box in order to display several of the images in one project by tucking them inside the box. My cover has "Teddy" with his message that he brings T.L.C. to Speed Your Recovery. Inside is full of goodies for most things that might ail you. There are band-aids, tissues, a prescription bottle of T.L.C., and the old stand-by....chicken soup. "Cuddle Me Better" Bear is in the middle and he looks like he has bandages and he's sick, poor baby. I printed him out twice, cut him out and made a backside and a little stand so he could be standing there waiting to greet you when you open the box. Regarding the blog hop, you should be coming here from Michelle's blog and going to Anita's blog from here. Instead of each DT member choosing a winner, we will have "Secret Beauties" along the hop who will be awarding three free images to one random commenter from their blog plus a grand prize winner of five free images (only those who leave a comment on each blog on the hop will be added into the grand prize drawing). I'm sure you'll see more of the new release images along the hop so be sure to check them out. They are all available in the Busy Beauties Boutique. Thanks for stopping by and have fun hopping.
