A Big Cricut Hello & Chirp to each of you! Welcome to the Cricky Across the 50 Blog Hop hosted by K Andrew of Getting Cricky!  
If you are here from New Mexico aka Flair and Frills then you are traveling in the right direction. If you just happen to be visiting and would like to start from the beginning please go to KAndrew's Getting Cricky
For this blog hop K Andrew is celebrating her big move across the country with a big road trip, and of course this hop across the 50 states! She has asked us all to post a little bit about the state we are representing, and then post our Favorite Craft Project. 
I am representing the state of New York. I was born and bread here and although I have not done a great deal of traveling within the state I do have my favorite spots.
This is a photo of my most favoritest spot in the whole world. Allegany State Park {heart}

Here's an interesting yet useless bit of information about our great state:
New York was the first state to require license plates for cars.
See I told you interesting AND useless. 

For this hop I wanted to incorporate my favorite place in the whole world which is Allegany State Park. I have been visiting and camping at ASP for almost 25 years (Yes, I'm old :). We've picniced there, hiked there and camped there (in both cabin and tent). It really is my happy place. I created this layout to preserve the memories of our 2010 tent camping trip. 

This 2 page layout has a spot for up to 12 photos as well as 4 journaling tags. I put a lot of dimension into this LO using my CuttleBug and pop dots. Each Cricut cut is from Simply Charmed and represents a glimpse of which photos I will be placing on this LO. (PS: The pic of the trees above is a photo I took myself and it will be placed on this LO)
 The Tree represents the GORGEOUS forestry in the park. It's just so beautiful and breath taking just to soak up God's handiwork. 
The Fishing pole and fish represents the fun fishing you can do at one of the many lakes within the park. My kids like to fish but like me they won't touch the fish once it's hooked. That's why we bring daddy along. LOL
 The sand and bucket is for the 2 gorgeous beaches. This year we went to the Red House Beach and I think I love it more than the Quaker Beach. 
The hot dog of course represents the good 'ole camp food we stuff ourselves with the whole time we're there. Diet and nutrition is out the window when we are at camp. If you want S'mores for dinner and popcorn for breakfast then by all means that is what you get. :)

Here is a close up of the journaling tags. I could not stop inking the edges on this LO there is ink everywhere. :)

Before you take off for North Carolina I want to give you a chance to win some blog candy. I will be giving one lucky winner (chosen by Random.org) an embellishment bundle. The bundle includes eyelets, brads, rhinestones, etc. To win, you don't have to be a follower but if you like what you see feel free to follow. Please leave me a comment with a way to get in touch with you should you win and tell me what your favorite place to visit is. Winners will be chose on Monday 2/14.

Please make sure to leave comments on ALL of the blogs for a chance to win a ton of different Grand Prizes on Getting Cricky's blog, from these great companies: Scrap N Tote, Scrap N Easel, Cri-Kits, Creative Charms, Memory Miser, Scrappy Chic Cafe, Loralie Designs, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps, Cricut Town, The Scrappin' Table, Piktails, and Pink by Design
Please make sure to visit ALL the blogs, as EVERY single blog will have fabulous giveaways (cricut cartridges, paper packs, copic markers, yourstory bundle, clear stamp sets, and tons more). Each blogger was extremely generous with their own personal giveaways

I hope you are enjoying your "hop" across the country. Your next stop will be North Carolina aka redwolfSCRAPS.

If you don't have a chance to visit the whole country in one day don't worry our hop will be up and running all weekend (Friday 9am thru Sunday).

Enjoy your trip 
&
Keep Kreating,
Erin

I, too, am a New Yorker, although not a native. My husband grew up in Allegany County, in Angelica, and it truly is gorgeous down there. We have camped in the State Park as well...so you could just send me the layout and I could put it to good use! Now I live in Hilton, just outside Rochester--and we get into the Southern Tier every month or so. I'm a follower--you can find me at ksjennings at gmail dot com and/or http://karelj.blogspot.com

North Star said...

Great blog! When I was younger, I always thought New York was all city, then growing up learned more and found out, nope, its not all city. Like your state park, gorgeous, quiet...peaceful.
Great job representing New York!

No place special, I mean of course I love the Grand Canyons but I also love the desert, I loved Flagstaff, Tombstone, etc. So I would have to say the state as a whole and not just one spot/city.

Oh Erin - this is just fabulous! I love this layout - the journaling tags in pobkets - just a great idea - I always have so many pictures there is no place to journal! I want to visit Allegany SP - what a beuatiful place it looks to be! My favorite place to visit is Southern Utah - I can't really say one place in particular - I was born in Moab and I love it there but Zions National Park and Bryce are fabulous and last summer I went to the tiny towns of Torrey and Teasdale outside of Canyonlands National Park and I could have just stayed there :)

Thanks for sharing this special place with us!

New follower here. My DH was born in NY and I adore the gorgeous scenery in upstate NY. I also love driving along the Hudson and all the quaint towns along the river. Frederick Church is one of our favorite artists and I loved visiting his home Olana. I can see how he was inspired by the beautiful views from the porches of Olana.

Love your blog and project. That's awesome to fit so many pics on 1 page. I love having lots of pics in a layout.

I also love Disney but like I said I love to discover new adventures! We do a weekend camping trip here in Ohio @ State parks each year so I can compare things in your story and page!

Love those two album pages! My favorite place to visit is my parents' house on the Chesapeake Bay. It doesn't matter what season it is or what the weather is like - when my husband and I travel there from the hustle and bustle of DC, we always feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you for sharing your projects and the awesome giveaway!
