Scrap That Poetry's 1st Blog Hop

**Edit- I will post the overall winner tomorrow... still going through posts!

Welcome to our 1st Scrap That Poetry Blog Hop!

Begins Friday at 9 am through Sunday night!

We hope to offer some inspiration as well as introduce you to our newest DT Members! If you would like to be entered in a drawing to win a RAK from Scrap That Poetry, you must become a follower of this blog, as well as comment on each DT member's blog. When you are finished hopping, you will come back here and leave a comment that you finished the hop! The overall RAK is a $15 online gift certificate to your favorite online store. (as long as they offer gift certificates.)

We are posting a bonus poem in honor of this hop as well as Valentine's Day! If you choose to scrap a layout, card or project that uses a line, verse or inspiration from the poem and you link it to this post, you will get 5 extra chances to win the gift certificate. If you post a link to our blog and mention the blog hop on your blog, you will receive an extra 2 chances if you tell us in the comment section.  If we break 100 followers, I will raise the gift certificate to $20.

How Do I Love Thee
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my souls can reach, when feeling out of sight
for the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
most quiet need, by sun and candle-light
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
with my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
