Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop!!
Welcome to the 50 States Blog Hop! Most of us would love to travel but are having staycations this year. What better way to travel but through a blog hop. This hop was inspired by our host Shawnee's journey across the United States as she traveled with her family to their new home. The United States is truly beautiful with many wonderful places to visit and see.

Now on to my state and my project....
Welcome to Kansas!
My husband and I lived in Kansas for 2 years while he was in the Army. It meant so much to us - our first 2 years of marriage and we had our first of three daughters there. Coming from the desert in California, what struck me about Kansas was all of the wildflowers - specifically sunflowers there. Did you know that sunflowers grow towards the sun and will turn throughout the day?
To create my sunflower, I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge available only from Close to my Heart. Sunflowers remind me to "seize the day" and take advantage of what we have which inspired me to use this sentiment from Close to my Heart's Something Splendid acrylic stamp set. The leaves (from the same stamp set) are stamped in Olive Ink and a button is placed in the center of the flower.
I am also giving away blog candy on September 30th to one lucky person who comments throughout the month. Please comment below and check back on September 30th to see if you are the winner!
Now you can hop to the West Virginia Remember to leave a comment on each state to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE!!
