Link Up the Love Party - Getting Cricky

Hello Friends! Tomorrow is Wednesday which means we are half way through the week. I don't know about you but these days are just flying by! Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! There are a couple things I want to remind you of! This weekend there will be a Getting Cricky Blog hop. Starts Friday and goes all weekend. Lots of amazing project and prizes as well! Be sure to hop over to that! Second is this weeks Getting Cricky Challenge. This will go until Sunday at midnight. You can enter a project on the Getting Cricky Website that has to do with Tea Time. I posted my project earlier so if you have a chance take a peek at that and be sure to check out the other projects that have been posted. Lots of cute ideas!

Okay now on with today's info! :) Getting Cricky has another event that started today and will go until next Tuesday (11/22). It is called Link Up Love Party! It is a great way to meet others in the bloggie world, and find great new project ideas! For this you get to create a project that has to do with Thanks/Blessing. It is a great time to give Thanks! I wanted to share with you my project and then I will give you a little more information about the PARTY :)

I thought I would make a Thank You for my in-laws for having us over for Turkey day. They have us every year and my mother-in-law makes a big feast! I thought this would be a great way to thank her. I used the Turkey from the Little Critters Cartridge and the Thanks for a great day is actually from two of Kristal's Stamp Sets. I used the words Thanks for from the fashionable friends set. The actual words were Thanks for your support. I just covered up the words your support. The second part is from Food for Thought. The original saying was It's a great day! I just put a little tape over it's and made this little creation!
I have so many things to be thankful for this year and I can't wait to count my blessings with my family!

Okay so here is what you need to do to LINK UP THE LOVE :)
Link Up Love Party: How it Works

*Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 11/15 to Tuesday 11/22. Winners announced 12/20 at next Link Up Love party.
*Grab Kristal's blinkie and post on your blog's sidebar
*Be a follower of Kristal's blog
*Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention my blog, with a link back to Kristal's blog .
*Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog post THAT HAS TO DO WITH THANKS/BLESSINGS!! That could be a card, layout, treat holder or decoration.
*Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
*Spread the word so everyone can join in!
*You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up tool/gadget)
If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. I have two moderators who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun!

Link Up Party: Giveaway! A FULL year subscription to the best scrappy magazine out there: Creating Keepsakes for TWO lucky followers who Link up and play correctly. Winner will be announced December 20th at next Link Up the Love Party so make sure you come back to see if you won!!!! Remember, if you don't claim your prize within ONE week, it goes back in to the pot!

So link up your projects and have loads of fun! Can't wait to see what you all come up with! Have a great one y'all!
