Alright, so on to my project.
I am a very bad hopper this month. 
I have been more than a little preoccupied with life and didn't read the hopping directions.
I saw "home grown" and I ran with it. 
Unfortunately I ran in the wrong direction. 
Instead of flowers and gardens I did a fair layout. 
After all what else screams "home grown" more than a county fair?!
So here is my offering this month.
I know it was not what was asked for but I hope you enjoy it!!

I absolutely love the fair!!
And the goats by far are my favorite!!
So with a little Simple Stories and my Cricut this is what I created.

Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you enjoyed my hopping mistake :)

UP next is Alicia
Here's our amazing line up in case you get lost:

Connie Can Crop Monthly Challenge

Hello All!!
It's that time again for 
Connie Can Crop's Monthly Challenge!!
This months challenge is an inspiration.

Take a look at the picture below. 
Your challenge is to create something inspired 
by this beautiful spring day.

After some deep thought,
this is what I was inspired to create.

As usual I created using only scraps from my bin.
I really enjoyed making this thank you card. 
It reminds me of spring in Valley.
If you have seen my post from April,
spring and tulips are a pretty big deal.

If you would like to play along with this fun little challenge
Just click here!
We would love to see what you create!!
