Krafty Girls Challenge Number 1 and Blog Hop!!!

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!  Welcome to my lil' ol' blog!  I am so excited to be a part of the Krafty Girls DT, and I'm super excited that today is the first challenge!!!  The challenge is to create a card, 3D item, scrapbook page, etc. that represents the place that you're from/live.  I live in California, so this is the card I made to represent some of my favorite things about living here!  California has soooo many things to offer (deserts, agriculture, some really big cities), but I chose to represent what I love most: a big redwood tree, the ocean, and (of course) Mickey Mouse because I love going to Disneyland!!!  I also added twine around the state, this represents the area of California where I live!  Hope you enjoy and I can't wait to see what all of you create over at Krafty Girls!!!  :) 

Do not forget to enter my awesome GIVEAWAY!!!!!
