Blog Hop Galore!!!!!

Soooooo.... I've been super busy trying to keep up with Colorful Creations Summer Blog Hop!!!! I've completed a number of different projects so please take a moment to check things out!!!!

The first project on the list was to create a summer tag for Rachael's blog.  I also used a sketch for the tag from littlescrapbookshop as a challenge for Sketch Inspiration.  
Here is the sketch...

And here is my Summer Tag!!!!!! I think it's so cute!!!! 
I started with a standard No.8 tag and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Circles folder then inked it with Tim Holtz distress inks in Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Broken China.  I added some "beach" pattern cardstock and several "beachy" embellishments to give it that summer feel! I just love the little towel :-)

Another challenge on the list was to create a mini album for Anne's Blog.  THIS was a lot of fun!!!!! It's like several tiny scrapbook pages to create!!! I used spray adhesive to add pattern cardstock to cover the entire chipboard album.  Then I just went crazy!!!! Pics, stickers, embellis and more!!! Here are some pictures of it... 

                    This is the front..                                                  And back...


 And this is the inside back cover...

Another FUN challenge I completed for Brenshevia were these super cute "popsicle" cards.  That's right... these are cards!!!! And VERY easy to make!  They would be great for birthday parties or any children's event.  

Okay... this one is very special to me.  This is my youngest daughter still in the hospital after her birth in August of 2010.  Coming in at only 5lbs, the clothes appear a little big!  I made several rolled up flowers and added many more from various brands.  I used the new Lucky 8 punch to make the large die-cut and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet distress ink.  I painted several chipboard pieces and added them along with numerous die-cuts I made on the Cricut.  Papers are a mix of DCWV and Pink Paislee.  Thanks for stopping in!!!!! Hope you enjoy and have a lucky day :-)
