Welcome, everyone!  The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog is turning TWO this month! To celebrate, we're excited to bring you our "We're Turning Two" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by AuroraWings! Come hop with us for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the AuroraWings Etsy Shop!

As you hop, collect letters at each stop and be sure to leave each designer some love. Once you have collected all the letters, unscramble them and email your guess to - then all the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the Aurora Wings gift certificate!

All of the LTSCB designers are using 'two of something' on our inspiration projects. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a project using 'two of something' for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guess and to link up your project so we can make sure you're given two entries into the drawing!**
Here is my card using the gorgeous "Pansy Girl" image:
 I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pansies!  They are my absolute favorite flower.  Given the choice between receiving a bouquet of roses or a flat of pansies, I would take the pansies!  So, when I saw this image, I knew I HAD to have it.  My mom also loves pansies and her birthday is coming up, so I put together this card for her.  I have a lot of "Two of Something" on here: two die cut pansies, two punched butterflies, two colors, two "patterned papers" (I stamped them), and two words in my sentiment.  I think that covers it all. : )  Here is a close up of the gorgeous image:
When I saw all the bubbles on the image, I thought they would look awesome decorated with a pearl pen, and they do!  It really adds a lot of texture, too.

My letters are R and E.

Here are your blog hop stops:
Heather--that's me!

We hope you are enjoying the hop and if you get lost along the way - or if you landed here in the middle of the hop and want to join in the fun - head over to the Love To Scrap!Challenge Blog to read all the details and start from the beginning!

Happy Hopping!
