  11. Dee, I just finished the hop and all the banners are amazing. I will have to stop back to a few since they didn't have a post or pictures up yet. I also was able to follow a few new blogs, too. I can't pick a favorite because I know that each and every one of the banners are going to make a difference in the child who receives them's lives! Please join Day 2 tomorrow since I am in the lineup and feel free to follow back!!!
