Today my project is about Guardian Angels...
I believe in my family we have a few of them..
My Mom and Dad... My Aunt's (Dad's Sisters) and now my Uncle Ken
I think all my Grandparents also are there for us!
There have been several instances in which without our Guardian Angels 
there would have been a different outcome in our lives.

We are offering some fabulous blog candy to 2 lucky winners - 

Just comment and give some bloggie love to each of the Calendar Girls. For our blog candy, Lynne is offering a personalized mug mat monogrammed with your first initial. Please, don't forget to comment on all blogs along with leaving your email address that we may contact the winner. You get to chose either fall colors or Halloween.
Also, Lynne is offering a breast cancer awareness bracelet to one lucky winner.

Also I didn't tell Lynne this but because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I made a
bookmark for Hope! I am going to give it to one lucky blogger on this hop!
Here it is..

The one I send will be without the angel pin as its very dangerous where it is...

Also in August I had a winner of my Taylor Toadstool from The Stamping Chef..

Sandy Hentzel... if you will contact me I will talk to Tamara about getting this image to you..

Sorry for the delay!!!

I am the last spot on your hop... hope you have a great Saturday!!!
