Here is the order of the hop:

This May Kit is stuffed full of all sorts of Crate Paper, Basic Grey, October Afternoon, Glitz, Elle's Studio, Jenni Bowlin, and Pink Paislee goodies! I love it! Be sure to hop on over to the idea gallery for this month to check out all of the creations the dt have come up with so far!

This is the 4th layout I have created using the kit. I started out with some 3x3" squares of left over patterned paper that I had. Then, I used my Cricut Expression and SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) software to cut shaped paper out of green cardstock. I only used a portion of it, adhered with Helmar adhesive, and stitched along the edge using a zig zag stitch. This picture is of Carter when he was a toddler. He was out playing in the grass with his best pal, his doggy, Sadie. I tied some of the white tulle around the photo. The 'butterfly' is actually a flower from the Crate Paper chipboard. I cut some of the flowers stamens off and turned it upside down to make a 'butterfly.' I adhered it with Helmar Scrap Dots. I then took some jute and stapled it to show the 'trail' of the butterfly. The alphas are a mixture of Glitz and Pink Paislee. I just love the rustic look of these Pink Paislee alpha's. They are so cute! This was a simple layout to pull together, but I really enjoyed creating it.

"Silly Sweet Sadie"

To show some dimension...I pulled out those handy dandy Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots for the butterfly. I also used the Helmar Adhesive runner on this page.

Now, on to the PRIZE!!!! I have a super cute set of 6 clear stamps from Inkadinkado that I would like to give away!!! This set is called 'Floral Flourishes.' It looks like it would be a very versatile set! To be entered for the chance to win this stamp set, simply leave me a comment on this post. If you could, leave me a blog link or email address or something so that I can get in touch with you if you are chosen the winner. I will randomly select one winner using random.org tomorrow (Wednesday). Here is what the stamp set looks like....

Good luck to all who enter!

Now, on to the next blog on the hop. You will be visiting Jill next. You will absolutely love her! Jill is one of my favorite artists! So inspirational! Have fun!

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Scrappin!

Pin It!
