**~* Magical Moments with Fresh Brewed Designs BLOG HOP!! *~**




It's the first Wednesday of the month, and you know what that means for Fresh Brewed Designs ... another blog hop and image release. The Blog Hop starts with Rhonda, so be sure to go there first!

This hop will not be your ordinary hop... it is full of secrets and smiles, wonder and amazement.  Magical things happen when you get a group of ladies together. What kind of magic you ask?  The only magic worth seeking, wanting, cherishing... the kind of magic you find in true friendship :) Today we have a little bit of magical enchantment to share with you in these newest Fresh Brewed Designs images. Each tells a little story, a little mystery, a little fun, and adds just a little bit of fantasy to each creation you will see during this hop.


As children we remember those Fairy Tales about mermaids and magical worlds where fairies live. We would lay in the grass and wonder if the patch of wildflowers was full of life, if mermaids swam in the sea beneath us. It is always fun to imagine and dream.



"Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again"... CS Lewis



For my card I used Marina with Pearl ~ isn't she a stunning digi!  I was so excited when I saw this entire digi stamp line ~ mermaids!  I had this idea to expand her seashell the moment I saw this and I jumped out of bed at 2 am to jot down this idea - lol ;)  Using ocean colors CS and the water/bubbles Cuttlebug folder, it sort of all developed (although not exactly as I had planned!)  With lots of bling and stickles and treasures alike, here she is with a sentiment I added via computer graphics. 


**Be sure to complete the hop in full, you will not want to miss the surprise at the end!!!

Just in case you get lost along the way, here's the entire hop order:
Stacy
Amanda (guest designer)
Barbara
Jenn
Joyce (guest designer)
Grace
Heather (owner!)
 
Hugs and Blessings!
 
 
Thank you for splashing by today!  Continue on in your journey and vist the next stop on the hop - the amazing Jeanette's blog, our August Guest Designer!! =)

  20. OK, I am bored and checked back in here... and am in tears. Thank you! Thank you for reminding me what faith can do and that God is so good and that we all fall ... but he is there to lift us up. Life is so much more than what our eyes are seeing... we just have to keep believing .. I HAVE seen miracles happen .. AND silent prayers answered...

    Thank you Kelly!!! Thank you for sharing Gods love and uplifting others in prayer and being the woman that God called you to be.

    I love ya.
