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 Massachusetts, 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....


My family and I are big fans of visiting Maryland! In my 2 layouts I have made to share, we were at the Chesapeake Bay for a Wedding! It was tons of fun & so beautiful! I love the water, the colors & the beauty! Hope you get a little glimpse of what I Love Most about Maryland!

 I had fun putting these projects together with the help of and remembering how much fun we had in the summer of 2010! There was no family vacation this past summer, so it was nice to pull these pics out & remember! Enjoy the Rest of the Hop, Happy Traveling!

  11. Nice layouts. I would love to vacation in the New England area.

  12. Fun layouts! I want to go there! Florida is the only state I have been to the Eastern coast and one of these days I want to visit them all! I have not been to many of the 50 states, but of the ones I have been to, I would have to say that my state is my favorite to vacation in. I am not biased of course :) In Utah, we have everything! Great snow for the skiers (which I am not, but I like to sled)! Mountains for hiking and camping. And of course the desert - I was born in Moab where the Arches National Park is and that whole area down there calls to me every day - I could spend every day in the red rocks in Southern Utah - even the heat of summer does not bother me. Sorry to ramble and gush, but you did ask LOL
