Farewell Elise Blog Hop Surprise!

Hello friends!

Today is Elise's final day as a Beary Scrappy Girl, and we're celebrating her friendship with a surprise

 Farewell Elise Blog Hop!

We are sad to see her go and will miss her with all our hearts. We have delighted in her creations week after week and benefited greatly from her uplifting comments. 

Elise, you are very special to each of us. As a way to recognize this, we've all played secret crafters and planners. We love a good surprise! Here are our projects, and please visit each of our blogs as we reflect on our time with you. {{big hugs}}

Here's the hop order - just like our weekly posts.

Please visit each blog, and as you're crying along with us, be sure to become a follower if you're not already *and* leave a comment. Please post our candy on your blog, too. At the end, come back here to The Beary Scrap Design Team blog and let us know you followed along - you could win (even if you're international)! 

The hop is open through Saturday, September 4th, and we'll announce a random winner from all the comments on Sunday. The prize is an assortment of embellishments* you'll find on Elise's fabulous projects: satin and sheer ribbons, lace, pearls, pins, little baubles and delicious flowers flowers flowers! 

Thanks for helping us bid a fond farewell to Elise! Oh, and don't forget to pop on over to her beautiful blog - Paper Love Affair.


*The prize is compiled from Susan's stash... not Elise's. :)

I just CAN'T stop crying!!! OMG! Every time I finish posting a comment on one of your lovely girls blogs, I'm finishing up wiping tears .. then hop to the next blog and argh!!! Throat closes and tears start dripping all over again! Oh the emotions! And if you could all see me .. which I wish you were all with me right now .. you'd all be saying, "Elise .. you're a MESS!!!" lol!

Do you know how much I'm hugging you all right now?! And how tight my hug is?! I am so TOUCHED beyond imagination with what you girls have done and said. My heart is all over the ground .. it has melted .. completely! lol!

I want to THANK ALL OF YOU .. for welcoming me into your beautiful family and for always making me giggle, smile, and laugh and feel loved! You girls are SUCH an INSPIRATION to me .. you each have your own STUNNING STYLE that I admire and appreciate. And you each have given me so much love that I will ALWAYS treasure!

I am going to go to the message board right now .. just so I won't take up the entire comment area on the TBS blog! lmao!!!

I love you sweet girls ... very very very much!!!

Hugs and Kisses,

Of course I want to participate in the hop to bid Elise farewell, I have looked around and was already a follower to Jamie, Patricia and Gini and as for Susan I am subscribing to the feed - would that be enough instead of follower?

Well, Elise must be feeling pretty loved right about now. You girls are great and I've loved all the ideas! The blog hop has been educational, that's for sure. I just started a blog a few weeks ago and I'm still not sure what I'm doing. Now, if I can just figure out how to "post the candy" to my blog, I'll be in the game!
