You should have arrived here from 
Cricut Crafty Clare's blog.  And if you are just dropping by and want to start the hop from the beginning please start at Robin's blog here:

I got my inspiration for this house from Erica's blog hop last week, at Check her out if you get a chance! She did an awesome job and thought my Imagine could do wonders with this and my DGD would love, love, love it!! I have made cards with the kids from Best Friends in the windows and love how easy the Imagine makes that! I kinda wish I'd made it big enough for her Barbie! But didn't want to go overboard. She'll love it anyway!

I used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cart and cut the shop at 11" and flood filled it with the papers from Yummy Imagine cart. The tables shown are what's on the walls inside you can see thru the windows! They are made from Kate's Kitchen (not to be used yet in CCR!!!?) As I said the kids are from Best Friends, the gifts are from Yummy. Love that cart! The couple on the back is from Sweethearts I believe!

Now for my blog candy! I'm giving away the MS Stamp Around the Page with 8 stamp set and 6 inks. I have this set and loved it so much I bought 1 to give to my friend and 1 for this hop!! All you have to do is leave a comment with contact info. You don't have to be a follower, but I'd love it if you became 1! I will draw using Monday! Good luck!

 Thanks for hopping with us! Hopefully we have inspired you! Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from these very talented ladies!
