Just finished your blog hop, it was incredible! Can I just say the Melinda's gingerbread men are some of the prettiest I have seen!

Melissa said...

I just left the last stop on the blog hop (Melinda at Scrapbookeden) and I was so sad that she didn't have a spot to leave a comment. Her LO's were adorable and I loved how she made the gingerbread people look like they were actually frosted! Too darn cute! I would appreciate it if you would forward my comment to her and I sure hope someone can help her figure out how to turn her comments on! I just became a new follower of her blog and I'd love to leave her some notes!

Thanks for the wonderful blog hop! I feel like I've been hopping all day, but it sure has been fun!!!
