I am super excited to take part in my first EVER blog hop.. I have never done this before so all being well you should have arrived here by way of Milissa here and you will be part way through your adventure of seeing what everyone else is up to.
As you know by now we were tasked with taking some inspiration from one of the Master Forgers blogs and I chose this one for mine from Ashleys Blog over here
.....of course.. mine is very different but I hope you will find it to be recognisable from Ashleys.
I loved her delicate colouring and layering and I do love banners and needless to say- they're still right on trend- so although I have used very different colours.. I have emulated those lovely banners too and mounted each one on co-ordinating card stock. I then added the 'punch outs' from my Martha Stewart Fan punch to make the spray and added little aqua gems for droplets.
I then used a Stampin' Up stamp for the rosette beside the photos and I was just about done... how cute is this little tot (my cousins first grandchild) ???
THEN... 'cos I don't know when to stop crafting and I lose all track of time.. and mostly because I was so inspired by the Master Forgers blogs.. I created a second LO!
This time I was inspired by Lesleys blog here and chose this wonderful LO....
So I created this LO here.. which co-incidentally (!) also complies with Challenge No 3 and encouraged me to Scrap about my favourite place in the world- which in my case is my home.. so here is mine!
I took pleasure is using a few little scraps of paper and some washi and I then cut out the lettering for the title with my Slice, added flags and a wooden house, inked with a teal Dew Drop ink pad and then added some gems to the entire background and finished off with a flourish of bakers twine.
I hope you've enjoyed my efforts so thanks for stopping by... and now you should hop over to Dawns blog here
Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know you were here and happy hopping!"
The full blog hop list will be published on the CKCB blog so if you get lost along the way, head over there to find your way back onto the hop.
