By now, blog-hoppers.... should totally be feelin' the love! You've reached the last stop on the Birds of a Feather "Lovebirds" Blog Hop and hopefully you made your way here via Linda's blog. If you didn't know about the hop (gasp!) and you stumbled here first, head on back to the BOAF Blog to find out how to play along. Here's the blog list in order, to give you an idea....

Amy (you are here now)
then back to
Birds of a Feather Kit Co. Blog to tell us you've finished!

Here's the Grand Prize that one lucky hopper will win:

This gorgeous little mini-album kit by Maya Road in conjunction with Bella Blvd. is available only to retailers, but you can win it here! It's a $35 retail value and here's what's included:

~ Maya Road "Home" Mini-Album
~ 2 Full Blister-packs of Maya Road Mini Chipboards
~ Full Pack of Maya Road Kraft Tags
~ Pot of Maya Road Glitter
~ Maya Road Ink Pad
~ Full Tin of Ribbon Slides
~ Exclusive Maya Road "Home Is" Stamp
~ All papers needed to create this project
~ Step-by-step Instructions

And now for my crop-challenge for you, a recipe challenge! Sounds easy enough, right? Here it is:

1 piece of chipboard
2 photos
3 different colors of cardstock
4 different patterned papers
5 different types of embellishments (not counting your piece of chipboard)

Is that the easiest recipe or what? Oh wait.... yes, one tiny little qualifier :) You must have some form of the word "Kiss" on your layout OR your photos must somehow involve a kiss. It doesn't matter who or what, it can be baby kisses, puppy kisses, wedding kisses, little girl with her favorite baby-doll kisses, Grandma & Grandpa kisses.... whatever you have. Just show me the kisses!!
Here's my example with, coincidentally enough, the Birds of a Feather February Kit featuring Basic Grey "Kissing Booth":

1 - chipboard bracket frame
2 - photos
3 - red, yellow, & Brown cardstock
4 - four different "Kissing Booth" papers
5 - cardstock stickers, diecuts, ribbon, and 2 different types of flowers

If you complete this challenge, upload it to my challenge forum on the message board. Each challenge will have a prize winner! If you are not yet registered on the board, you can do that here. It only takes a minute and we'll be watching closely for new registrants to activate.

The crop and blog-hop officially close on Sunday, but you will have until Wednesday night (the 15th) to get your challenges loaded into the forums and gallery.

Be sure to leave a comment here on my blog so I can see that you've been here, then head on back to the BOAF blog to leave a comment on the initial blog post that says you have finished it all! And then go get to scrappin'  :) Have fun!
