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.
If you've hopped along from Maine, then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard or happened along from somewhere else, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start with the first state in the union, Delaware, because you won't want to miss out on any of the fun (or any of the blog candy!!)...

Now on to my state and my project....
Welcome to Missouri!
Our family has called Missouri home for two years and the beauty here never ceases to amaze us. Being from the California desert (which we think is also beautiful), we love that the landscape constantly changes. As soon as you get used to the lush greenery, fall comes and turns the leaves to hundreds of colors of reds, browns, golds and yellows. Then winter blows that away with the bright whiteness of snow and bare branches and then spring comes and turns everything green again.
Here is my interpretation...
To create my September tree, I used the Potpourri Basket Cricut Cartridge. The sentiment "happy now, happy forever" reminds me that we need to be happy with what we have right now and we will always have a source of happiness. The paper is from Close to my Heart.
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 Arkansas. Remember to leave a comment on each state to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE!!
