Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge April 2017 (#1)

Welcome to the very first Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge ever!  You'll have to forgive me because this is not exactly how I wanted the first one to but it's tax season and well... I've run out of time!  So it will get better and better as time goes on!

If you've followed our mini blog hops each month at all, you know we are three friends who were brought together by Close To My Heart so our blog hop has always centered around the wonderful CTMH products.  This year we're focusing on the B&T Duos Paper Packs and/or colors each month.  We would love for you to join us and you don't have to use Close To My Heart products, but we'd love it if you did!

Each month we'll be giving a small prize package by random draw so please be sure you leave us a way to contact you for your mailing information.  For last month since I was a little late getting this together, I offered up a giveaway anyway and the winner is Maryann Samuelson!  Maryann please email me with your information to mail your prize at!

For this first challenge, we're using the most awesome Close to My Heart Paper Pack, Some Kinda Wonderful (or this color pallet/inspiration):
Easy peasy right?  Not too many rules except please do be sure we can see the colors/inspiration from the photo of the paper pack.  Please do explain it in your post if you think we might not get it.  If you do use at least one Close To My Heart product that is visible (again, point it out in case it's hard for us to pick out-doesn't include Cardstock, adhesive, ink, etc) then you will get an extra chance to win! We'll try it this way for this time and things may change a bit in May.

Don't forget to include a link to this challenge in your post!

So here is how we were inspired-you can click on our names if you haven't already been to our blogs for more information about what we made and let us know you were there:

So glad you stopped here today and we really hope you play along!  Just think... if you're the only one, your chances of winning are pretty good... and if you use at least one CTMH product, your chances are double! :)

Now ... get going and make something and come back to link up your project below!
