We hope you've enjoyed our hop this month and found some projects to inspire you to create some amazing and sparkly projects of your own! I apologize for the delay in posting, I had a rough day with my kiddo and found out an old friend passed away, but we're live now and we have some really great prizes up for grabs!



Speaking of Prizes---Because of all of my buying a house and moving shenanigans that occurred following our June hop (i.e. I took two months off), I managed to misplace the prize pack for our June Blog Hop while packing! πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

But never fear, I have found it now, and added a couple of bonus goodies--including a collection of coordinating paper from my own stash, and a mini stamp set!!

Without further adieu and with sincere apologies, 



LISA (did not email to claim prize--Forfeit)
You have won full size packs of all 6 blends from our June release, plus a bonus pack of 6x6 coordinating paper I put together from my own collection & a mini stamp set!

ALL of the other lovely ladies who commented on the Doodles Paper Playground blog post will receive a pack of their favorite blend from the June release, plus a mini pack of another June blend-selected at random as a bonus!
