** It's a Girl! Blog Hop for Lil' Miss Croghan! **

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to the first stop everyone!

We are here to help Lesley and Corey Croghan celebrate their little bundle of joy coming into the world next month and let me tell you, we are all SO EXCITED to be here today - and we are counting down the days until we get to meet this little precious girl....

Lesley, you have been such an inspiration to me and a dear friend throughout my crafting journey! Your heart is full of gold and you are always so giving and now, it's my turn, along with a few of your friends *wink* to give to YOU (and your family!) with this blog hop and online baby shower.....

Lesley, you received a box the other day and now is the time you get to open it! I sure hope Corey takes pics/videos of you opening your goodies - that would be so fun!

Now, I cannot show the card I made The Croghan's as it is for a future challenge - however, I made a crocheted afghan for her and I am so happy with how it turned out (I hope you like it Lesley!) 

As I was working on it, I thought of you and your new family, and put many blessings into it and lots and lots of love for you and your family!

Alright - now...onto the party!!!  We are linking up the cards/gifts we have made for you guys here so you can go each individual blog and read what is there for you while you read the cards from the box! :) 

We tried to contact as many people as we could that Lesley had contact with to join our blog hop, so if someone was not contacted, my sincere apologies - you can still play along with us by making a card and linking up here! I have left the inlinkz gallery open until March 31 at midnight MST - come celebrate with us! xoxoxoxo

Have fun Lesley (and Corey) - love and hugs to you both and God bless you and your new family! xoxoxoxo
