Royal Blog Tour

Hi all! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying the tour. Be sure to sign up for email updates or bookmark my blog for reference later.

I am featuring the Music Expressions stamp set. First is a 12 x 12 scrapbook page with some of my wedding photos. Then we have a black/white music recital invitation on vellum.
Lastly, there is a lovely distressed card.
This stamp set can be so elegant on black/white or 'old' with the distressed look. Everything is 100% SU products. I hope you have found a ton of inspiration in this tour! Be sure to send your friends over!
I am offering Blog candy to 3 lucky winners! I will give away a free Circle Circus stamp set to one lucky non-SU demo who: leaves a comment with email info (random). The 50th person to leave a comment (with email info) will receive a sampler of all 6 new In-color ribbons ~ 1 yd each. The 100th person to leave a comment (with email info) will receive a free pack of retired DSP, and anyone placing an order of $50 will receive an extra $20 of free merchandise (your choice) from me! Remember to leave your comment and contact info! You may email it to me if you don't feel comfortable leaving it in public view. Don't forget that there are 4 tours, but you have 3 days to ride them all. I will not be changing my post until after the tour is ended. Now, on to your next stop. Goodbye!

Are you still counting to get to 100? I don't think anyone is posting here anymore. I thought about making 4 comments but wasn't sure that would be right! The tour was fun.
