Hugs & Kisses to Elise!

Hopefully you have arrived here from Susan's blog and are participating with us in our farewell blog hop to our lovely and talented Elise! We will all dearly miss Elise and her exquisite cards that have us "oohing" and "aahing" each week!

While we will miss her, we have had some fun keeping this little secret from her and planning some farewell projects. My project is an altered frame with a Tear Bear crafter to honor her as a member of The Beary Scrap Design Team.

My frame is covered with My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy Paper and spritzed with Creme de Cocoa Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Then I added one of Kimm's original Tear Bears with her hands full of paper crafting supplies and mini replicas of Elise's fabulous cards.

Elise, you've been fabulous and it won't be quite the same without you! I wish the very best of luck and hope to see you popping in to our blog and entering our challenges often.


Now, hop on over to Patricia's blog next and in case you're starting in the middle, here's the hop order:

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.
