VC Rocks! Final Blog Hop for 2010 Season

Welcome to the Final Blog Hop for the 2010 season of VC Rocks! It has been a whirlwind summer at VC Rocks! Lots of games, classes, swaps, contests, challenges, fun, laughter, and most of all friendships and fellowship. This is the most wonderful group of ladies. They are also some of the most talented you will find anywhere and I am proud to call each and everyone of them my friend.

There are 32 stops on this hop as well as 4 ladies posting on the VC Rocks! home blog, so you
will find loads of great projects.
You most likely hopped here from the lovely Diane Clark-Sutton. She does awesome work. If you get lost along the way, travel to the VC Rocks blog to find your way again, and check out the stampers that are being featured there today. Here is my project:
