What An Explosive Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the What An Explosive Blog Hop!



Ashley here and I am the hostess for this fun hop.


I asked a fabulous group of talented crafters to join me in showcasing explosion boxes.  Be sure to stop by each stop, you won't want to miss a thing.


Here is the lineup...




Here is my explosion box. I tried to work with different colors and patterns. Kept the edges a little rugged. I did keep the center closed because there is a personal message to my mom for Thanksgiving...



Recipe:
All the cuts and shapes came from the Silhouette store
Papers are from my stash, My Mind's Eye Honey Cake and Core'dinations
Chocolate Truffle and Krazy For Kraft twine from Trendy Twine
Jaded Blossom-Flag Dies, Flag Dies 2 and Thanksgiving Wishes







For the blog candy...

$20 gift card to Joanns or Michaels (your choice)


To be eligible to win...
1. Comment on all stops in the hop
2. Leave a way for me to reach you




I will announce the winner on Friday, November 30th.





Thank you so much for hopping and I hope you enjoy the hop.



I will now send you off to Jamie's Blog!
