We're turning THREE in March!  Can you believe it?!  The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog Design Team is proud to bring you our "Three's A Crowd!" Blog Hop to celebrate our third birthday!  We're being sponsored by Your Next Stamp!  Come hop with us for a chance to win a $25 gift card to use in the YNS Store!  And as an extra added bonus, our challenge and blog hop participants may use code YNSLTS3 to receive 20% off their order - and this code is valid for the duration of our blog hop!  How awesome is that?!

As you hop, leave comments!  The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!

All of the LTSCB designers are creating BIRTHDAY inspiration projects for our blog hop.  Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a birthday project for an extra entry into the drawing!

The stamp set I received is called "Blast Off".  It comes with two images, three sentiments and three different sized stars.  I decided to make a card for my great-nephews birthday.  He will be five this April.  Hope he likes it!

The gold stars are from the stamps set and the others are some added bling.  After embossing the paper with stars I distressed it a bit so it would stand out.  I also distressed the sentiment on the outside and added another of the sentiments on the inside.  The star paper I have had forever.  I have no clue where I got it.

Here is the line-up:

We hope you are enjoying the hop and if you get lost along the way - or if you landed here in the middle of the hop and want to join in the fun - head over to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog to read all the details and start from the beginning!

Happy Hopping!
