For me this Alumni blog hop affords me the time to visit your site to review the new products and be inspired by the creations on both the Heartfelt Creation's Blog site and the chance to see what the Alumni team members make. Each gives me loads of inspiration and a chance to see how to use the products in different ways. Your site and the Alumni team participants alway provide wonderful projects with a detailed, easy to flow instructions. Now if only my budget could align more closely with my wish list....
