Paper Issues Blog Hop!

September 16, 2011

*Giveaway is now closed, winner will be announce tomorrow.*

Welcome, Welcome.
If this is your first time here at my blog, welcome. If you've been here before, welcome back!

The new theme over at Paper Issues is Tree Hugger. I wasn't sure exactly what to do, since I didn't really have any hippie related or camping material to scrap. So I went with outdoors....which turned into beach :)










I had so much fun making this layout. I used my Zig embossing pen to write ," sandcastles," and embossed using my brown sugar AC Zing, which I happen to think looks almost identical to sand :)  I loved watching Ryan build sandcastles with the kids, even though they kept wrecking it, he kept trying.

In honor of the blog hop, (and moving recently) I'll be doing a giveaway as well.
To be entered, please leave a comment with contact info.

My giveaway is a big box full of goodies, lots of paper, even some exclusive SC papers from some past kits. This picture doesn't do it justice, but the box is gonna be packed!





Winners will be posted on the Paper Issues blog, Monday, September 19th.
