>Blog Hop- Get Cricky

>A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky! (www.kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com ). If you are here from Amy Westray of redwolfSCRAPS, http://www.redwolfscraps.com/ than you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew’s Getting Cricky! http://www.kandrewdesigns.blogspot.com/. For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then to post our Favorite Craft Project. My name is Patricia, and I am the owner and creator of MDN Creates.  I am representing the state of Ohio

Everyone knows about the Ohio State Buckeyes.   They have been national champions seven times.   What some people do not know about the state of Ohio is the world’s biggest basket, located in the city of Newark, Ohio.   The basket is actually an office building, and the home office of The Longaberger Company.   Longaberger creates baskets, pottery, wrought iron, candles, and accessories ,and sells the products through any number of 70,000 home consultants throughout the United States.   I am proud to be one those consultants.   The building is shaped like the medium market basket, which was the founder, Dave Longaberger’s favorite basket.  He started the company in 1973, and today, the company is lead by his daughter, Tami Longaberger.   More on Longaberger at a later time.

I just created this mini album for the hop, and you can be the winner of this album, as well as some other goodies when you leave a comment or follow this blog.   Now a little bit about prize…
The cover is from Your Story, which is a binding machine.   There is also a bigger version of this machine, which not only binds, but laminates as well.   This machine I used only binds the book, and the neat thing about it, is you can decorate the cover.  In this case, I cut out a heart from the Cricut cartridge, Storybook.   It was cut at 3″.   Inside the cover, I have a envelope which was also cut out from the Cricut, this time, it is the cartridge, Wild Cards.   A tag will come with it.   The first page is matted with striped red patterned paper, and a solid dark red paper.  the flower comes from a retired K and Co collection, the Hannah Collection.   The next page is decorated the same.
The next two pages are pocket pages, and they have one tag each for the page, and a photo mat.   The two tags have something encouraging to say, because I believe in encouraging people.   The next four pages are winter type pages, which are simply decorated in blues, and snow flakes.  I have also some Addison Flowers which are retired K and Co collection.  Finally the last two pages are a simple photo pages, with Hannah flowers on the corners.   I am so happy to make this for the visitor who wins it.
Please make sure to leave comments on all of the blogs for a chance to win several different Grand Prizes on Getting Cricky’s blog, from these great companies (I will send you a list)!

Next stop on the hop is Joe, Carol, Joe, and Betty of CreateNCraft at http://www.createncraft.com/.

Again, thank you for stopping by, and have fun on your next stop.
