But you taught me how to trust myself, and so I say to you...this is what I have to do...

Hey, y'all! Welcome to the first ever Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today, and we're celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve Blog, so if you've just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start at the beginning! And to make sure this party is a real shindig, there's a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter will win Verve's entire August release! But of course, it wouldn't be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you're feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!

In addition to some eye candy, I have a super secret preview of some images from the August release. Are you ready?
Yep, that's some brand-spankin' new Verve on that card! To kick-start my mojo, I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge to get me going, but I kinda switched it around a little. Aren't you shocked? *wink* I am going to keep you in suspense as to the details of the sets, but I used Enjoy, To Risk, and Bountiful Backgrounds. You can look for them on August 14th!

Now, it's late, and I know you have lots of hopping to do, so I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. You're so awesome for stopping by to see me today! Now it's time to hop on over to Bethany's blog for some more Vervalicious eye candy! Have a fabulous day!
