Hooray for Blog Hops!!!





I've had so much fun participating in these blog hops! It's so fun to see eveyone's related projects AND it makes me get something done!! You should have come from Heather's Blog, if you didn't you'll want to hop back to Amanda's blog and start at the begining.









We were given a sketch and asked to create a LO. I had LOTS of fun with this one!! I love the look of layouts with clustered (and lots of them) embellishments but I always have a hard time pulling it off to where I'm happy. Because of the theme I was going with on this LO I forced myself to go a little further, add more stuff! It was a BLAST!!! I pulled out things I had not ever used or that I forgot I had, LOL




Here is what the LO looked like at first when I THOUGHT I was done.



And here is what it looks like now. I'm not touching it again, at least not to add more stuff :)















Here's the jounaling so you can read it :)






We were also asked to make a card from the sketch and this is what I came up with. Even though the card and the LO are not related I did use some scraps of the same paper to make my card and one of the same stamp sets.



Thanks for stopping by!!! You're next stop is Laurie's Blog!
