SSD FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop


It is now time for the long awaited Sassy Studio Designs FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop.  If you came here from the amazing Wonder Regan's blog, you are on the right track.  If you started here, the full hop list is below so you can get back on track.  As you know, Sassy Studio Designs asked you, the FANS, what images you would like to see.  Everything you see during this hop was inspired by the FANS that suggested them. 

I am happy to present Bonnie of the Nile.  This was suggested by...Bonnie of course.  I think this is my new all-time favorite SSD image.  I colored her with Copics, cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  The mat behind her is metal and I ran it through my BigShot with and embossing folder.  The background paper is from Heart of Wisdom.  I love Egytian things.  This was so much fun.

Now down to business.  The theme of our FAN-tastic Valentine Blog Hop is "Who is your celebrity Valentine?"  We will tell you, then you tell us.  If you do, your name will go in the hopper for some free images.  All the details are on the SSD blog.  We will also give away images for commenting on our DT blogs.  Just leave us love as you hop, then tell us on SSD who your celebrity Valentine is.  We are also looking for a guest designer for next month.  Please enter your name on the SSD blog if you are interested.  You get free images, make new friends and have lots of fun.

 Here is my celebrity Valentine:



Yum, yum, yum.  For those of you who don't know him, this is Jared Padalecki from Supernatural.  He is hot, hot, hot!!!!  He also has a beautiful smile.  That is what initially caught my attention.  He is so cute when he smiles, you can't help but smile back.  I thought you might prefer seeing these pictures instead of his smile though.  I would ask you not to tell my hubby about him but he already knows.  Every weekend we watch Supernatural together.  He thinks it is funny as I am just a wee bit too old for Jared. 

Your next stop on the hop is our guest designer for this month and also my sister (no nepotism here, I did not vote), Robin.  It is so much fun having her on the team this month.  Please head over and check out her Valentine.  One more thing before you go.  We will be having a Party Chat with the Design Team at 10:00 pm on SSD blog.  Join us won't you?  Here is the full hop order:
