50 States Blog Hop

Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop! Most of us would love to travel but are having staycations this year. What better way to travel but through a blog hop. This hop was inspired by our host Shawnee's journey across the United States as she traveled with her family to their new home. The United States is truly beautiful with many wonderful places to visit and see.

If you've hopped along from Georgia, then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard or happened along from somewhere else, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start with the first state in the union, Delaware, because you won't want to miss out on any of the fun (or any of the blog candy!!)...

There is an AMAZING Grand Prize Package for one LUCKY hopper (winner chosen by Rafflecopter)!!  To be entered to win, please do the following:
So what's the Grand Prize???
Cricut Cartridge - Destinations, beautiful handmade flowers from Shannon at Creative Chaos Flowers, and a $20 Gift Certificate to Scraptastical Kreations.

Now on to my state and my project....

CONNECTICUT

I have never Traveled to Connecticut Before, but was inspired by it's beauty and charm. I hope you enjoy my Layout!


Since my New Craft Room is still out of whack and not put together yet, I opted for a digital project with the help of picnik.com

**What's a Hop without Some Candy? I am offering some blog candy of my own! It's a Super Secret Grab Bag! It will be tons of fun** 

How to Be Entered for my Blog Candy: 
1. Please Follow my Blog (if you don't already)
2. Leave a Comment and tell me your Favorite State to Vacation in!

I will randomly pick a winner on Sunday and announce it on my blog Monday!
Good Luck! Since I have two states, I will be offering 2 Super Secret Grab bags!!

Now you can hop on over to Massachusetts!!  Remember to leave a comment on each state to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE!!

  9. I'm a new follower. Not been to CT. Liked your Autumn photo in the CT layout. My fav place to go would be CT to see the NE Autumn colors and another fav of mine if I'm being truthful would be Alaska which I've been to but would go back to in a heartbeat since there is so much to see & do there.

  15. What a gorgeous layout Tina! I would never guess you had not been to Connecticut! One of these days, I want to travel by car to every state - I have been to very few of our 50 states - but this hop is helping me see at least parts of each one - loving it!

  17. I love the layout. Thanks for sharing it with us. So far, my favorite state to visit is Texas, but that's because we don't go much. I am sure there are many more states I would enjoy more. Hoping to visit South Carolina soon

  18. Great layout! I follow you already. I have 2 states, the first one is Florida to see Mickey and the other one is Missouri. We go to the Lake of the Ozarks every summer with my entire family. It is more the tradition than the location that makes it so special!!

  22. I love your project! It's amazing what you can do digitally. I just commented on the last hop stop's post and said I would love to try digi scrapping. Lovely! My favorite place to vacay is Maine!!! In fact, I just got back from there this week! I have been 3 times and one of the times I got to drive through CT, which is absolutely gorgeous as well. We are hoping to move to Maine and if so, my favorite state to vacay would be Hawaii. Maui is lovely! Go to Maine though if you get the chance ever. :0) TFS and for the chance to win. I'm a new follower. :0)

  30. I've never been to CT...maybe eventually I'll get to go...I don't get to vacation often, but my favorite vacation LOCATION tends to be somewhere in the Great Smoky Mountains...however a GREAT vacation really hinges on the people you are with. My best vacations are always spent with my family.
