I just finished the hop, am I the first one??, I became follower by e-mail...

The answer is, I think, 'going to the beach', but furthermore going to heaven to be with our Creator for ever...

Becky said...

I fell in love with all of the fabulous creations....so much inspiration in all of them. My dream vacation is time spent at our beach house surrounded by the sound of the ocean and the call of the gulls. Heaven on Earth for me!

CraftyJo said...

I've hopped all over the place :) been inspired by each and every project I've seen, they were all fab.

My dream vacation would be to re-visit the island of Bali and take my closest family members with me, including my gorgeous grand-daughter who will shortly be 2 years old and would love to run around the beautiful beaches in the warmth and bask in the friendliness of the locals.

Cathy U. said...

The May releases can only be outdone by the designers who designed for this blog hop. I love it! My dream vacation is a cabin in the Appalachian Mountains. Enjoying all the wonders of nature that God has given us.

Linda R. said...

All done with the blog. What beautiful cards! The amount of creativity is staggering. Just love the new stamps. Those palm trees are so tempting, but lately, I've been thinking of Ireland's green, green pastures and rolling landscapes. I think I'd love to spend some summer afternoons visiting a few villages tucked away in green valleys or see the beautiful cliffs with the ocean breezes bringing the taste of salt to your lips....sigh!

Done with the blog hop. My "Dream" vacation would be to go back to my birth place in Germany. I was 6 months when the Army sent us home so I never got to "see" anything about where I was born.

Diann said...

Anonymous = Germany is me. Sorry about the missing name

Caryn S said...

I was able to visit all of the blogs without any issues. What a gorgeous set of ideas! Just fantastic projects and so much inspiration.

My ideal vacation...hmm...I have several. My family just visited WDW, which we have dreamed about doing for a while, but we didn't spend enough time there. I'd like to do that again, at a less busy time of year and for a longer stretch, so we wouldn't feel so rushed. OR, I'd like to visit Europe with DH to meet his family, most of whom I have never met. A side trip to Rome would be nice! My third option would be to return to Hawaii where I was born and visit some relatives that still live there. Wow I think I have a lot of "dream" vacations in my head!

Martha said...

I finished the blog hop but could not comment on Rosemary's blog.
My dream vacation would be to go to Australia.I would love to snorkel on the reefs and just embrace the culture.

Sherry Kushibab said...

I find myself craving some fruity little drink with an umbrella after visiting the DT's blogs. While I adore the beach and the breeze blowing on my face as I walk along enjoying the water teasing my feet - if you know me its the sand of the desert and riding a horse that is my favorite way to spend my vacations. Some great stamp set in this line.

Shona Erlenborn said...

I was able to leave comments on every blog. What a beautiful array of projects. The new sets are all so stunning - it is hard to choose a favorite.

As for the dream vacation - just transport me to the hills of Tuscany, and a little stone house, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards - basking in God's glory! Actually it's more than a dream vacation - it's a dream retirement!!

Irma said...

I've finished the hop & enjoyed all that eye candy! My dream vacation would be to take all of my family to Costa Rica to soak up all the beautiful scenery there.

Loretta o. said...

Just finishing the blog hop now and really loved seeing the work of so many talented folks! Neat new stamp sets!

My dream vacation? If cost were no issue, I would love to wind through the Pacific Northwest in a private lavishly decorated viintage style railroad car! A person can dream, right?

Becky said...

Just finished the hop, and what gorgeous cards and creations with this new release.

My dream vacation,any place warm and sunny with a beach.

Becky Green said...

EVERYONE did a FABULOUS JOB on their projects!!!!!!! I was SOOOO WOW'D!!!!!!!! Everyone seemed to have their own style & creative flair!!!!!!! THIS blog hop was SUPER GREAT!!!!!!!!! I was SOOOOO INSPIRED by what I saw!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

For my "dream vacation?" I would have to say it would be Israel! SOMEDAY, we'll ALL be there together!!!!! :)

Lil said...

I was able to visit all the blogs on this blog hop. Everyone was great and gave lots of inspiration for making cards. My dream vacation would be and all inclusive vaction to Aruba with my family for a week. Just the thought of it is relaxing.

Anita Braddock said...

Wow what a Beautiful Hop Loved all the Projects. Everyone has Outdone them selves. Loved all the new Stamps. I love your hops they always are Amazing. My Dream vacation would to Take my Family back to the Ocean Shores and spend the Quality time we all seam to not make time for in our busy Life's. sometimes you have to let the Day to Day things go and Enjoy your Family and life because it ends so fast. Our Kids grow up so fast then you forget that you have to stop and Smell the roses. and be thankful for your Family. I think we forget that life is very precious so we need to take the time. thanks for sharing.

Sue said...

Thank you for a wonderful blog hop, such beautiful inspiration from everyone.

30 years ago I spent a holiday on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. My dream vacation would be to visit that beautiful place again.

Sorry forgot to say I had no problems leaving comments on any of the blogs.

Divinity said...

my dream vacation is time spent with my hubby at a cabin with a great water front. :)

Rhonda said...

Susan Wagley Batson said...

Just finished. What a talented group. I loved every one. I am inspired. Thank you so much.

Vacation would be a trip to small towns in Europe to sample some simple life. Villages really.

Janice said...

What talented ladied. They both awe and inspire me. Thank you for providing the blog hops, they make my day!

my dream vacation would be Italy. To experience the countryside, the food, the hospitality and did I say the food!

kathi17 said...

All the bogs were so beautiful, I love seeing the different ways the designers used the stamps.

My dream vacation is any where there is water, sand and no crowds. I love sitting on a beach and watching the waves, birds, clouds, all of nature's beauty, and listening to the sounds they make. Also love just floating in the water and feeling peaceful.

Kathy O said...

I finished the hop! Wonderful creations! I did have trouble with Rosemary's blog....I may have left 1,2 or no comments. Sorry, but I'm not sure.

My dream vacation would be to go back to Ireland, then on to Paris, London and end up in the Tuscan region of Italy. What a dream!

Lois Kennedy said...

I always love your hops, but this one was so refreshing and relaxing. I LOVE this month's stamps and the way each designer interpreted them. My dream vacation is any beach with my husband, a good book and a cold beverage.

Rebecca Slocum said...

My dream vacation is not having to cook food, but still get to eat it, and visiting the Italian scene.

loftylass said...

Well I've finished the hop - enjoyed visiting all the blogs and found loads of inspiration - they are such a talented group - hats off to them all.
My dream vacation would be a trip to the Italian Lakes - beautiful scenery, good food etc. mmmmm.
Lovely dream.......

KVencel said...

I have just finished your wonderful blog. I feel like I've been on a "paper design vacation" already! My dream vacation could be "anywhere" as long as I had my family and good friends nearby for fellowship and fun. Maybe a little good food, too!

Welsh Annie said...

Have completed the blog hop and left comments, what great designers.
My dream holiday would be to hire a RV and drive from east to the west of the States, stopping off at the Grand ole Opry on the way. Anne

Primitive Seasons said...

While I love anything to do with the water, I'd love to visit New England and see the fall foliage and visit all the neat historic places and small shops. Good food, restful nights, cool air. Can I pack now??????? I completed all the stops on the hop and really enjoyed the project.

Mary

Anne said...

My dream vacation would be to go to either Switerzerland or Hawaii. Now that is two extremes isn't it?

Conniecrafter said...

I finished the hop, such beautiful creations!
I would have to say my dream vacation would have to be Ireland, we were stationed in England for 4 years and I loved it but we never got over to Ireland.

Dianne said...

I have finished the hop. I loved seeing the various creations of how these stamps can be used.

My dream vacation will be going to Hawaii to see my daughter and grandchildren. My son in law is in the military and they will be stationed there for 3 years. With 4 kids they won't be flying home so I have to fly there.

Hugs,
Dianne

Kim Rudisill said...

What a nice hop. And every artist should be commended for the use of the ODBD stamps.
I think my dream vacation is always time at the beach but with family would make it the best.
Blessings!

Rebecca Slocum said...

I finished the hop. My dream vacation would be visiting Italy under the sun, and not having to cook!

Olga said...

Just finished the hop, it was full of gorgeous creations from all!!!!! I'm blown away with eyes popping and jaw dropping!!!! My dream vacation would be any where with my family all together, we are spread out and hardly ever get together anymore, so that would be mine!

Anonymous said...

Cynthia Xavier said...

My dream vacation would be to one of the islands in the Carribean with my whole family. I think it would be wonderful to walk the long white beaches, smell the fresh air and have good quality time and make great memories with my daughters. They are grown now and living their own lives. I do not get to spend very much time with them anymore. That would be a dream come true.

I left a message on Sandee's site anonymous. I wasn't sure how to add my name at first. Now I get it.

JKB said...

Always a joy to see how the ladies have used the stamp sets and other products to create their porjects. Wonderful new set of stamps!!!!

MsCraftlife said...

hop over to everyone...and commented...

dream vacation... with my whole family... and that's a lot of use... at an incredible beach... with incredible weather... and lots of love, song and laughter... and the chance to take in a mass every morning... and thank god for what he gives us each day...

Sheila said...

I just finished the hop for the first time and I was amazzed at the beautiful cards and creativity. My dream vacation is a cruise to the Bahamas with my husband and children, no cell phones, just love and family.

Penny said...

This is the first time I have participated in the hop and I am amazed. There were so many wonderful cards and ideas!
My dream vacation is to go on a cruise, and Lord willing, that is what my family is doing this year!

Gail said...

Did the hop!
Amazing job everyone did!
Lots of different and beautiful ideas & creations!
My dream vacation would be on a beach, in the shade, an umbrella in my drink, a book and my camera!

Dottie said...

First, this was a wonderful, inspiring blog hop with so many very creative ladies. Hats off to you! My dream vacation would be a permanent one with my Creator in heaven! Time is coming soon! Until then I love a little beach we found in northern Michigan, off the beaten track on a little bay on Lake Michigan. Pristine, with eagles and quiet and hubby sitting next to me soaking up God's wonderful sunshine. Nothing better....oh yes there is. If my kids and grand kids were with us, then you have a perfect vacation!

gardener said...

A dream vacation. How much space do I have? I love going with my adult children and my grandchildren to national parks. Actually, going anywhere with my kids is the best.

Lisa said...

My dream vacation would be spent with my husband and children playing games and taking lots of photos and picking keepsakes to use in my dream holiday journal to help me remember the love that we all share as a family!!
What a great blog-hop! I have to admit it's the first time I've ever joined in with a blog-hop anywhere but it certainly won't be the last!!
Thank you to all the great DT members for the fabulous inspiration too, it was good to visit all the blogs on the list and leave comments too:D

Leigh Scherzer said...

My dream vacation would be a sailboat cruise - think Windjammer - with my family and a couple of close family friends. Relaxation, sunshine, wind (light!), waves, and time to catch up with everyone without the outside interferences of work and the world. The enrichment of the spirit would be reward in and of itself.

Pati said...

Thank you for another wonderful blog hop, I was able to visit and comment at each stop. I have several dream vacations, driving thru the Pacific Northwest in the summer, driving thru the midwest/east during the fall color show, spending a month in Ireland, having a big family reunion anywhere, traveling around Alaska in the fall...Some I've enjoyed and would do again, others I've only read about and hope to do/go. : )

sdoll said...

What a wonderful hop. Such beautiful projects on every blog. What a wonderfully talented bunch of gals. I can't wait to order some of these stamps.

My dream vacation would be on a warm beach, which is why I probably love those retirement stamps so much. Hawaii or any island where the sound of the sea calls you, that's my dream.

Ratty Hugs said...

Wow, so many lovely creations in this blog hop. Super work, Ladies.
I have 2 Dream Vacations, an international one, & a local one.
For the international one, I would love to go back to Africa & go on many game drives, photographing all the amazing animals along the way.
The local one is spending time at our River House, sitting along the riverbank, watching the birds fly by.

Annette S said...

I thoroughly enjoyed the blog. Each month I get blown away. I have the amazing privilege of living in the dales of Yorkshire in the north of Eng overlooking an ancient castle so in many ways I live in other peoples vacationland. My dream vacation is Yosemite. I have been twice and seen a fraction of the most amzing sights in the world. I visited it with my husband last year and he was absolutely blown away by the place and the friendly people who lived in places such as Twain Harte , Sonara and Angels Camp. We had the most amazing time.

Christy Davidson said...

I finished the blog hop.

As for my "Dream" vacation. It would be to get away by myself and just be able to spend time with God. Remove all the distractions that come with day to day worries and challanges. Just time to read and study the bible, and pray. That would be my "dream" vacation.

christi said...

i have hipity hopped to all of the great designers blogs. what a wonderful team of talented folks you have. no problems along the way. left a little love for each. my dream vacation for many years is/was to go on an african safari and see animals in their natural habitat with me in the cage to enjoy it all. i get entranced whenever i go to a theme park or preserve where i can see them. not so much monkeys but the big cats and elephants, zebras and giraffes and just the gracefulness of their gate and i could stans in wonder watching for hours. days if they would let me. thanks again for the hop. i really like the new sets, too.

ScrapMyWay said...

Totally fulfilled after going through such an incredible hop! I don't even need a vacation since it's so relaxing to take a peek at such talented artistry.No problems with any of the stops! The DT really made the sentiments even more beautiful. Thank you for giving us the opportunity and if you are sending plane tickets, I'd be going back to ITALY...LOL
Creative Wishes,

Queen Mary said...

I have returned from my pleasurable journey through May Release Design Team heaven! I had no trouble telling each member of the team how truly blessed I feel to be able to share in their talents.
Now that I've returned from this mini-vacation, my dream vacation is by the sea -- and I'm not just saying this because of this release! My brother is signing papers to build a home on the OUter Banks, NC, some place we went as children before 6 teenagers were too much for my parents to corral! -- and I am preparing for a lakeside silent retreat end of the month!

kathy serrahn said...

finished the hop, all awesome projects

dream vacation is to go to a beach house and just take it easy

mamaduck said...

My dream vacation would be to visit each and every stamping artist that I have admired through out the years. It would be fun to sit, talk and learn from each of them. Such a trip would take more than a tank of gas and maybe a few years.

Marie D. said...

I have returned to the ODBD blog and have completed my hop to all the wonderful creation from our blog friends.

My dream vacation would be to travel to Africa and visit all the vast treasures of the mother land and then go on an adventurous safari. Sleep under the stars glazing back at me.

Anonymous said...

Not got much done in thr home tonight been too busy enjoying the hop and visiting some very talented people.
Mt drean vacation would be anywhere quite does not matter where so I can be alone with my thoughts

E. Marie said...

I really enjoyed seeing what each designer had to share and feel like I just had a vacation!! I love the beach but my real dream vacation would be a stamping cruise with my wonderful sister and stamping buddies!! We would have so much fun, laughter, and creativity!!

TrinaM said...

Thanks so much for this hop. So inspiring to see what each designer was sharing - loved it.

My Dream Vacation would have to be Italy. I visited Italy last year with my Mum and sisters and would love to go back again to Rome (particularly the Vatican) and also Florence and Venice. Amazing country, culture and history.

Thanks again for another great release hop.

FM said...

I have visited all of the sites and experienced no problems, but finished feeling giddy with excitement over such awesome projects and such creative crafters. The new stamp sets are "to die for"!!!

My dream vacation was to Australia 5 years ago with my son. Since I lost him last year, that trip will always be such wonderful memories of time spent with him.

Anonymous said...

I finished and it was really a treat! Such creativity and individuality and such wonderful stamps---always a fan of ODRD!
My dream vacation is to go to Hawaii and have really perfect weather and spend some quality time on the beach and in the water!

pegphillips said...

I finished the blog and got a lot of great ideas. The projects were awesome.

I got to take my dream vacation when I went to Hawaii in March and the stamp that was used in some of these projects was really reflective of my vacation.

Vee Ramsden said...

I just finished the hop, all the cards/projects were truly inspirational. I went to Barbados at Christmas time last year for my daughters wedding, it was a hectic time but I fell in love with the place and the people. If I could go anywhere in the world right now, I would really love to go back there and relax this time.

occasionali said...

What an amazing time that was, hopping around some wonderfully talented creators. Thank you to all of them for sharing with us. My dream vacation would be a 'stamping retreat' where I could spend a week being taught by some of these talented designers how to put these creations together.

wilber said...

What a wonderful hop! You have some very gifted designers on your team. I definitely can see myself on an island beach right about now. Thank you all!

Cheryl Winget said...

I finished the hop - no problems with any of the sites. In fact, every project was gorgeous and inspiring. I am so in awe of all the talent! My dream vacation is to spend time in the UK. I have been there a few times and I LOVE it. I have visited England and Ireland/N. Ireland but I simply must spend some time in Scotland, Wales and some of the surrounding islands. If only...

Kathy Billings said...

I just finished the hop and it was so inspiring. My dream vacation would be to go a tropical island with my wonderful husband who was brought to me by Our Father.

Designing with Debbie said...

AWESOME Hop. I completed everyone's blog successfully. Great work by everyone very inspirational. My dream vacation would be to go anywhere with my family. I have never had a real vacation in my entire life. Seeing my kids have fun and me my husband be able to enjoy ourselves without worrying about money would be the ideal vacation.

Dorothy said...

Thank you for a trip pass many beautiful cards and talented people. My Dream vacation under that palm tree used in the stamp set and retirement soaking in God's creation. Blessings. Dorothy

Rosa Ann Whitehorn Smith said...

That was a great hop!
My ideal vacation would be to take my husband to Paris France for our 40th anniversary.

Dorothy said...

This is my second try at leaving a comment. Internet must be slow. Thank you for making this hop a treat. My dream is to be under the palm tree on retirement soaking in God's creation. Blessings

scrapperme said...

Finished the blog hop but I could not leave a comment on the 'heythererosigrl' for Rosemary. I tried 3 times! My idea of a dream vacation would be being on a deserted island in the tropics, hubby with me, with all the necessities available and no one else around! Fun, sun, and relaxation. My kind of vacation! Wouldn't mind at all if it had the setting in the stamp too, would love it!

barbiwire said...

I too finished the blog hop but was unable to leave a comment on Rosemary's blog. She has not received a comment for over 3 hours. Thanks to all for your hard work and amazing talent!! My dream vacation would be to take our grandkids to Disney World as we were never able to afford the trip for our kids!

Rachel Brooks said...

Completed the beautiful hop. Such great creations, such variety, such a talented group to inspire us! I'd love to go back to New Zealand and visit the South Island this time with a week's "vacation" in Fiji again. Amazingly beautiful and relaxing.

Anonymous said...

Wonderful talent...thank you all for sharing...my dream vacation is anywhere I am with my husband my girls, and my granddaughter

Yvonne W said...

Finished the hop but tried twice on Rosemary's blog but comment didn't take. My dream vacation would be a nice warm, sunny beach with everyone waiting on me.

Anonymous said...

I've thoroughly enjoyed perusing all the blogs. What a bounty of inspiration. Thank you.

I would say my "dream" vacation would be to go to China to find my "roots".

Shelia said...

just finished the blog hop. Wow, there is so much beauty to see! I love checking out everyone's gorgeous creations!! Thank you for sharing!

My dream vacation would be a trip to Israel. I've always wanted to go and visit the Holy Land. Maybe one day...

Sue D said...

Great release and blog hop.
My dream vacation is anywhere with my husband.

Melody said...

Thanks for a great hop!! Love all the projects that were made!! Thanks for sharing!!
My dream vacation would be seeing and watching whales with my husband and daughter!!

Fabulous hop! My dream vacation would be someplace tropical where we could get away from the world but still have some adventures along the way.

craftymom205 said...

Finished the hop. Great inspiration. My dream vacation would be to visit the Hawaiian Islands. Have been to Oahu twice and loved it.

Sue K (Australia) said...

Wow - what a way to spend the morning - had a wonderful time visiting all those great blogs and seeing all those beautiful creations.
Well done all of you and good luck to those who win the GREAT prizes!!!
I am from OZ and a visit to the USA and Canada has always been my dream holiday - I MUST see God's might and wonder - in the Grand Canyon.
Thanks everyone for the inspiration.

Babs Y. said...

Finished the blog - love the stamps and can't wait to get my hands on them.

Sue K (Australia said...

Oh - and of course - thanks to Our Daily Bread Designs - your stamps are gorgeous - only wish I could buy them here still.

Babs Y. said...

Forgot to answer the question - the beach is the most relaxing place I've ever been. There may be some other place, but I haven't experienced it.

Debbie said...

Wonderful blog hop! All the projects were beautiful!

My dream vacation would be to go back to Europe, specially Italy and Germany!

Francie G. said...

Beautiful creations, girls! Fabulous!

Donna said...

Just finished the blog...thanks ladies for sharing your BEAUTIFUL work and inspiration! My dream vacation would be a cabin way back in the woods with the man I love. Away from all the modern technology with just time to relax and enjoy the beauty of God's creation!

Becky Dunham said...

Wow, that was quite the hop! Every project was so gorgeous! I think I need all of the new sets! Almost 25 years ago, we spent 2 weeks on a Windjammer Cruise (sailing ships) in the Caribbean for our honeymoon. My dream vacation would be to go back again. The Retirement Set reminds me so much of that trip! Thanks for the chance to win some of your gorgeous stamps :)

Colleen said...

Absolutely AMAZING talent!!! Loved the hop. Had no problems leaving comments on everyone's blogs :) Great new sets, thanks for the chance to win!

My Dream Vacation would have to be someplace where everything was taken care of from the cleaning and cooking to the sightseeing. Where my, very active, boys could roam free and just be kids. A place that is totally stress free.

Alicia said...

Woohoo I finished the hop and my dream vacation would be in one of those little huts that sit in the water I think they are in Bora Bora or some place tropical.

Carol P said...

Just finished the blog hop and feel like I've been on vacation on the beach & sand castle.
My DREAM vacation would be on the beach in Hawaii watching the beautiful sunset over the ocean!!

Cards By Jan said...

GORGEOUS cards girls!! What a trip down a lane full of beauty!! WOW!!
Yup...I agree...this was an awesome vacation with all the sand castle, hammocks...couldn't get better!!
Hugs

Betty Wright said...

WOW! What a hop! I am always amazed at the creativity of the designs!

A dream vacation for me is a tour of the non-western world. I want to see all the countries I have only read about. I want to visit the Holy Lands to walk the same roads as Jesus. I want to know what the Sistine Chapel smells like, and see all the sheep in Ireland. I want to ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower, see the Parthenon, and visit all the Castle's of Scotland. I could finish it all up with some Italian cuisine! Yes, that should do if for now! A girl can DREAM!

Charlotte Ann said...

Oh, my. I just finished the hop, and it was amazing (as usual). Great inspiration from the DT.
My "dream" vacation? Oh, my. That's hard. I don't think I can say I have a dream spot I'd like to vacation at. Haven't had a vacation in years, so just about anywhere would be a treat!

Susan said...

Thank you for another wonderful blog hop. Those sentiments and dies are so fabulous.
I think my dream vacation would be to go to Tuscany for two weeks with my son and mother. We haven't been able to travel together for years and it would be so nice to have that special family time together making new memories.

crimsonowlcreations said...

This was an awesome blog hop! Some of the beach designs felt tropical, some felt like the Atlantic seaboard. MY dream vacation was and IS the place my husband and I shared out honeymoon - -Tahiti! We can't wait until we can return to those beautiful black sands, the emerald green hills and those bright blue skies!

Frann said...

That was a super blog hop--such beautiful work and great creativity! My dream vacation is a trip through the Galopagos Islands where I can be at one with nature. The animals there have no fear of man. You can walk right up to their nests and swim with the seals.

Christine said...

The hop was inspiring and lots of fun! What a great design team! My favorite vacation destination is a rental cottage right on the water! It is so peaceful and refreshing to get away from the pressures of life and enjoy the outdoors!

Sherry said...

I was able to visit every blog and leave a comment, WOW!! What a awesome set of stamps you have this time!Everyone did an awesome job!!

My dream vacation would be to either go back to Hawaii and maybe visit the other islands or go to Austraila.

Awesome hop!!

Greta said...

I completed the hop leaving comments for all the wonderful designers. Great new release! My dream vacation is a houseboat on Shasta Lake--best times we've ever had!

Fernanda said...

I completed the hop! My dream vacation would be going to Hawaii, Spain and Italy. Now I'm not going to be choosy about the order. haha

Hettie said...

I just finished the hop and all of the cards and tags were wonderful. My dream vacation would be two gloriously peaceful weeks at an all-inclusive luxury resort in Jamaica with my husband. I can just feel the breeze in my hair and the sand in my toes while looking at the ocean!

Lynn said...

I just finished the hop. I went to all the blogs and really enjoyed all the awesome creations! I love the stamp sets released this month! The DT certainly did a wonderful job with them.
Like so many others, my dream vacation always involves a beach, but a real dream vacation would be to have that beach be in Hawaii! I haven't been there, yet! lol Of course, I'd want to take my family, and that would include my doggie. He might not like to fly to Hawaii! We might have to stay on the mainland. : )

Tanja said...

What a great blog hop - some of the ladies realllly excelled!! My dream vacation would be a cruise - to Canada, to Norway and Scandinavia or to New Zealand. I am blessed to have gone on a regular holiday to Norway as we had friends there. It was only for 8 days, 18 years ago and it was an amazing country!

Marie-Louise said...

I have just finished this amazing blog hop. Wonderful projects on every blog.

My dream vacation is to return to the United States and show my husband the fabulous scenery and introduce him to the wonderful friends I had (and still have) there.

Anna said...

Thank you all for a great blog hop, this is my very first one and I've enjoyed it very much.
I could not leave a comment at Rosemay's blog, I tried about 6 times or so.
My dream vacation, would be a cruise ship, I can dreams! can't I.

Great blog hop! My dream vacation would be to take the entire family to Disney World, followed by a cruise for just hubby and myself to relax after spending all that time running around with the grandkids! I would like to thank Kelley for providing such wonderful stamps sets to inspire us!

This was a thoroughly enjoyable hop! What a talented and creative group of crafters. It is a joy for me to see your work...I cannot imagine being this creative. Thanks for a chance to play!

Gail Binette said...

I've completed the hop and enjoyed everything All the gal's works of art!
My answer to the question would be to spend an entire summer at an ocean cottage. Someplace where it doesn't get too hot and sticky like it does here in my little part of the world.

Edie Vatamaniuck said...

I'm all done the hop...what a fun journey. You are all so talented and inspiring. Thanks.

My dream vacation would be to go to a house on a private ocean beach, warm enough to swim in the ocean, and have all my meals made for me.

Judy said...

Great hop! So inspiring to see the beautiful projects shared by each very talented designer!
A dream vacation for me is going to a mountainside cabin with my children and grandchildren, visiting aquariums and other places of interest, and just enjoying being together.

my dream vacation would be on the ocean in wonderfully warm climate for a few months during our nasy winters in MN. I think it will not happen until I reach my heavenly home someday, when it will be glorious. what a glorious blog hop with such great images and sentiments released

JoanneO said...

I loved all the projects and cards! I love the sentiments used today on the blogs. I was not able to leave a comment on Sandee's blog but I did enjoy seeing her offering. My ideal vacation would be sending time on the water, anywhere! That would be very peaceful to me as I love to swim and fish when I'm not crafting.

Marina said...

I completed the hop. What a stunning collection of art! All designers are extremely talented people. After seeing all the projects, I feel so inspired.
My 'Dream' vacations would be sitting on a cruise ship deck with book in my hands.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Jan Garber said...

What an amazing collection of projects! I am especially fond of everything Becca makes. I have a saying here at the house, "What would Becca Feeken do?" My husband always laughs and calls me a stalker...well, maybe. LOL! Loved the hop!

Jan Garber said...

As for a dream vacation, it would be Barbados. I had the opportunity to spend one very short day there 20 years ago while on a budget cruise. How I wouldn't love to spend a week discovering all the beauty and the sweet locals who were so very kind and friendly.

Betty said...

Wow! What a gorgeous hop! We aren't vacationers, but we would love to take a cruise to Alaska!!

I love this months basket.

We love to cruise. I love cruising to Alaska been 4 times and would do it again in a heart beat. But my dream vacation is to do whatever my family would enjoy and hopefully with my grandkids soon. Need to get them first. God has created such beauty and we just need to take it all in. That is the only reason I love to travel, is to see Gods creation.

LaDawn said...

Wow all the projects are amazing. Each one will touch someone's life in a special way. At first I could not leave a comment on Chris, but I went back after I finished and it let me then. So I got to comment on all the sites.

My dream vacation is anywhere I can go with my family. I just enjoy spending time with them anywhere.

Thanks for the creations.

Your blog hops are truly a delight, filled with beautiful creations. This one was no exception. Outstanding, everyone! Thanks for sharing!

As for my dream vacation... I love to travel and I love nature so not sure I have just one dream. Time on the ocean with my husband, a cabin in the woods with my husband, traveling and exploring Europe, the Holy land....

I just finished the blog hop. Such wonderful creative and inspirational cards.
Answer: Anywhere my husband and family spend together is a vacation for me. It's not the place but the people you spend time with.

Mary C said...

I visited all the blogs and they were awesome as always. Such great designers. Sparks my creativity every time.
To answer the question on my favorite vacation...it has to be Orange Beach, Alabama. The sand is so white, skys so blue, waves rolling in, got stop myself. We have had wonderful family memories that were created there and still fill my senses with joy and warms my heart and very soul.

Laureen said...

I just finished the hop and enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with. I have my dream vacation every year with my husband. It doesn't make a difference where we are, we just enjoy the time together and God's wonderful creations around us.

JD said...

I finished visiting all the blogs, and saw again all the amazing cards and projects along the way. Always enjoy these hops.
My dream vacation would be visiting with family that I have not seen for a long time who live in some states that I have never been to

Super hop, so much fun, great creations by all. I would love to go to New Zealand and/or Australia. TFS!

Cheryl Wright said...

What an amazing blog hop! Completed and totally inspired. Woot!

My dream vacation would be to visit the US. I live in Australia and have 'virtually met' so many amazing crafters over the years, and I'd love to meet them in person.

Now.... I'm off to my craft room!!!!
