NOW THAT WAS FUN!

I’m joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

PARTY MOS 6

I’ve read that you know a party is fun if the hostess has a good time. Using that standard, the Valentine party was a huge success! You know a party is much more fun for the hostess if she lets the guests bring the treats, and that is exactly what happened with the Valentine party. You wonderful Blogville folks brought some fabulous treats to the party! I had so much fun visiting everybody’s Valentine party posts. What creativity and talent we have in Blogville! A huge thank you to each of you who joined and to each of you who visited me and the party links. You are the best! I also want to thank MckLinky, which worked great! I had a problem when I first posted, and I emailed MckLinky. He responded quickly, and the problem was easily solved.

Again, thank you for joining the party. You made it so much fun with your special contributions! If I missed putting a picture from your blog into a mosaic, I am so sorry. I started making the mosaics right after I put MckLinky up. I had no idea I was going to end up with 109 links! After awhile, it got confusing to try to make the mosaics (maybe if I were younger, I could have kept up more easily). I know I have some photos in the mosaics twice. Hopefully, I have every link at least once! Please accept my sincere apologies if I missed any.

Don’t forget the Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life on February 19th.

CLOCHE PARTY

To see mosaics in Blogville today, please go to Little Red House. If you missed seeing all of this Valentine creativity, be sure to scroll down to the next post, and click on the sites listed in the MckLinky. This is one party you can enjoy even if you’re late! laurie

Hi, Laurie! I loved your party! It was just so much fun! Now aren't you the most clever one? What a cute idea. I'm so impressed you were able to poke a little of every guest into the mosaics!
While I as attending your party I invited that cutie Johnny Depp to come over to mine and he did! He was blowing kisses to everyone! :)
Be a sweetie,
