Welcome to the Happily Ever After Blog Hop. If you just wandered up on my blog, I'm glad you're here! I'm so happy you're hopping along with us today. There are 16 stops along the way. This blog hop runs from May 1st through May 4th We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with a wedding or anniversarry theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by myself and some wonderful generous sponsors. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the wonderful sponsors websites also. At the bottom of this post you will find a list of all the wonderful ladies who have sponsored this blog hop along with what they have sponsored. I will have a link to each of their sites. Remember to be eligible for the grand prizes you have to be a follower of ALL the sponsors along with all the participants of this blog hop.
