Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop.

SE2BadgeToday you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  We are featuring the brand new SEASONAL EXPRESSIONS 2 and showcasing some of the new product you can find in the idea book.

If you are just arriving her from CHRIS LOTHIAN’s Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have 43 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I had been struggling with a layout for these photos of my son for quite some time.  Then I saw the Blossom paper pack and knew it was the perfect paper.  I found a sketch that was the base of my inspiration but ended up changing it quite a bit in the end.  Over all I am pleased the way this layout turned out and I love the Stamp “Smiles Begin with You” and it was so fitting for this layout.

Blossom ~ Dream Big~ Butterflies ~ Smiles begin with you ~ catscrapbooking.comSince this was a professional photo shot I thought it would be fitting to add the camera charm which is from the Craft Queen Base & Bling Charms.

Blossom ~ Dream Big ~ butterflies ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this layout fussy cut all the butterflies from the “Your Own Kind of Wonderful” and the tag is from Artbooking page 39.  To create the tone on tone look for the butterflies I stamped the base color in second generation ink and then the full color for the top layer.

Here is the full list of supplies:

Happy Crafting!
