Spread the Love!

Good Morning Croppers and Welcome to the first official day of our Conversation Hearts Blog Hop Crop! We are hoping you will help us spread the love by inviting all your friends!

What is a blog hop crop you ask?

For the next 7 days we will take you on a hop (a tour if you will) of all the CP Design Team Members' blogs. On each blog you will find a "love" inspired challenge and a game! Complete the challenge on the blog, upload your image to our gallery (or other photo sharing site) and then link it to the corresponding Challenge thread in our forum for a chance to win a GC to the Croppin Paradise store! If you missed the first game click here to give your best guess and win that adorable cupcake!

Our first challenge is all about those cute Valentine candies we all know and love... Conversation Hearts! Who doesn't love to open a box of these sugary delights and read the captions?? "My Girl", "Cutie Pie", "Be True" and most recently "Email Me" are all phrases you can find in a box! Not only are these memorable sayings, they can make excellent titles for your scrapbook pages!

My challenge to you is to use a Conversation Heart message as the title of your page! You can find a list of messages HERE!! Create a page, load it to the CP gallery and link it to THIS THREAD - Good Luck! - I cannot wait to see your creations!

Here is a page I created for inspiration - I used the message "Go Girl" to document my oldest daughter riding her new 2-wheel bike for Christmas!

Ready for another challenge? - Head to Wendi's blog - Scrappy Day in Paradise
