50 States Blog Hop!!

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 Wisconsin, then you are in the right place!! If you just happened to visit my blog from somewhere else, please be sure 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....  

I decided to make a Pop-up card for my project to show off some of the places you don't want ot miss out on when visiting the great state of California.  Hope you like it:)

On the front of my Pop up card, I'm showcasing our awesome License Plates for the great state of California. On the inside...Grapes for Wine Country, Shamu for Sea World, of course HOLLYWOOD, that funny little Mickey Mouse over at a place we like to call Disneyland, the Ferris Wheel at Santa Monica Pier and lots of Sunshine, Palm Trees and California Dreamin' is a little blog candy that I'm going to
send one lucky winner.  And just think, it will be coming
right from this Beautiful State of California:)
