Scrap That! Welcome Summer Blog Hop

I'm so glad that you were able to join us today! Are you excited about all the fabulous prizes including a Cricut??? If you have arrived from the Scrap That! blog you are in the right place, if not then head back there to start.

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created of my son at 2 years (I know he looks like a girl, LOL) for a scrap class I am teaching, using 7 Gypsies papers, lace and Prima bling. I also used a Beggahuna sketch and Darien's flower tutorial on the Scrap That! blog. For the flowers I just used a five and a four petal punch (McGill and Martha Stewart) that I had and they turned out nicely. Plus I made the lace flower. Stay tuned for a tutorial on that one (NO SEWING required!).


Design Tip: Use beads to create a beautiful flower center (or steal them from another flower like Prima).

Before you hop along to Janis' blog (http://thereluctantscrapper.blogspot.com/) you will need my secret word for the blog hop sentence, which is... SCRAP. Remember to leave a comment here with your e-mail before you hop off my blog and you must BECOME A FOLLOWER TO ALL 8 BLOGS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PRIZES. Thanks for stopping by and good luck at winning one of the many awesome prizes! See my last post for more blog hop details too -- don't miss out on great prizes so read the blogs carefully!
