Welcome to the first EVER Crop Circles Blog Hop !! And my first ever blog hop too !! Crop Circles is a group of ladies who share ideas and inspiration for all kids of fun paper crafting projects. We are mostly all Newfoundlanders, but there are some ladies from other places, but have links to our great Rock. LOL We thought it would be fun to have a blog hop and try to inspire lots of people (and each other). We don't really have a set theme for our hop, but we did use the fun March Challenge sketch from Sketch Book 365 so we could show you all the different ways a sketch could be interpreted. This is a scrapbook layout, not my regular post of a card or gift item, but I need to catch up on my scrapbooking (as do most scrappers I know LOL) so I was excited to do a layout !! You have until March 3rd to finish the "hop". For every comment you leave along the way, your name will be entered to win a fun Gift Bundle of Stampin' Up! products worth $50 !! So after you are finished here, keep going on around and spread the comment love !! And there are some other blog candy surprises along the way as well !!
You should have come from Rhea Skomorowski's blog before mine. If you didn't, no problem !! A list of all the participating blogs are below and just keep going around in a circle until you get back here again !! I hope you enjoy this fun blog hop !! Lets take a look at MY version of this fun sketch !!
Isn't that fun !! I actually didn't use a lot of Stampin' Up! products here (gasp!!), but that does mean I got to use a lot of stuff from my OTHER stash. The main inspiration for this page was (other than the adorable pic of my son) the super cute Walt Disney World 2012 patterned paper !! I received a Disney World 2012 scrapbook kit for Christmas, and I thought they would be the perfect papers to use for this layout ! This paper was double sided, one side had the fin Disney patterns and the backside was a coordinating solid color. Perfect ! I also used some Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Basic Black cardstock that co-ordinated really well. I was also really excited to use my Mickey Mouse Punch that I bought at Jo-Ann's down in Florida. Jo-Ann's in Florida is a PARADISE for Disney Junkies like me !! They have everything !! Hahaha Add in a few circl punches, star punches and some alphabet stickers and this scrapbook page was finished !! I think it turned out great !!
Well, thanks for coming by today !! I hope you play along with us and make something beautiful with this fun sketch !! You have until March 3rd to continue on our Hop as well !! So next, hop along to Michelle Marks !!
