Hello and welcome to the first ever I Love Lucy Blog Hop!!!!!!! I am soooo excited to be hosting this hop because "I Love Lucy" is one of my TOP favorite shows!!! I never get tired of watching them!! NEVER!! I actually put a DVD on when i'm cooking and even if I don't watch it and I just listen to the shows, I know exactly what is happening. That's how bad I am!!
I have all the DVD series and some others that I have found on her. I also have her Barbie doll collection! I think I am missing about three of them! Anyways!! Let's get to the fun part!!
I found some crafty gals that have a love for Lucy as well and we got together to create this blog hop! I assigned each gal an episode and from there they got inspired to create!!! I know these will be WONDERFUL!!! So let's get this Lucy Party started!!!

My inspiration was from Season 5 #20 Lucy Gets a Paris Gown and just in case you are forgetting which show this is, here is a peek of it:

Meet the Scrapbookaholic By Abby's Design Team

Hello my dear followers and friends!! I am sooooo happy to announce to you my NEW DESIGN TEAM!!! This choosing a DT is the hardest thing ever!!! I will have some guest designers that I will announce later on (still waiting on some emails). In the meantime... meet the team!! In alpha order!!!!

I am a mother of 4 wonderful kids, Angelina (11), Angel (10), Ahnais (4) and Ava (7 months). I live just outside of Chicago in The Town of Cicero and I found scrapbooking in March of 2008. I learned all that I could quickly and never looked back. I love to learn new tricks and to try them out. Distressing happens to be one of my favorites right now. I am also a paper lover and I can't live without my Cricut. I am a proud member of the Cricut Circle since Feb. 2011 and I hope to be able to continue being a member. I currently have a seasonal job so I normally have winters off but summers are super busy for me especially this year since I will be a full time employee, full time student and still full time mommy. 

  • Amber 
  •  I have 2 very young kiddos and live in CO.  I'm a housewife and although my kids keep my crazy busy I love finding time for creativity each day.  A few of my favorite things include, penguins, purple, the show the X-files, and playing video games.

  • Ashley 
  • I have been crafting for a long time but more in the past year and a half. I got my Cricut November 2009 and I have not stopped crafting since. I love to make Cards and Layouts. I do not own a craft room, so my craft area is the dining room. I live at home with my fiance, my puppy Matilda and my sister is currently staying with us. We are getting Married this October in Portland, Oregon. I was born in Austin, Texas but raised in Oregon. My grandma is the culprit for my craftiness, She always bought my stuff to do crafts. Just recently I got her into it and she has been making cards with her Big Shot and Stampin Up Products. I love when I can inspire people to be crafty themselves

  • My name is Celeste B. (C.C.'s Cards and Crafts).  I am a STAHM and think it's one of the hardest jobs I've ever had (but the most worthwhile).  I have two beautiful little ones; they often craft with me, which means fuzzy stamped images or phrases and lots of 'personalization' to each card they 'help' with.  I also have a wonderful husband that is sweet enough to not to complain when I give all my cards to family for them to give away.  I've been making cards for a few years and am really getting in to re-purposing items.

I started scrapbooking a few years ago as a way to pass the time but I really enjoyed it and it took off from there!! I got my first cricut a couple of years ago and now I am hooked! I love making cards, altered items, etc. and I am so happy that I am going to be able to share that with all of you!!

  • Karla 
  • My name is Karla Urea, I was born in Caracas Venezuela, but I live in Miami, Florida. I love scrapbooking, I started this hobby many years ago.
