Samantha's Cricut Creations 1st Anniversary blog hop

Welcome to Samantha's Cricut Creations 1st anniversary blog hop!

If you have just hopped on the tour, please go to Samantha's blog at to start at the beginning. If you have arrived from Mallika's, you are in the right place.

The hop theme today is crafty anniversary. I took me awhile to decide on what to prepare to celebrate Samantha's first anniversary with her blog. And what a fantastic blog it is, I might add! She has so many great ideas and has come a long way in the past year with her blog. So, I finally decided on a HUGE shout out to her for her special day. Hope you enjoy and Congratulations Samantha!!
