Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Blog Hop

Hello, Welcome to the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Blog Hop. If you are visiting from Patricia's Blog you are in the right place. If you just happened to visit my blog please start the hop on Tricia's Blog .  This is a ONE day blog hop that will last all day today, from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm. So sit back, relax, and enjoy viewing all the wonderful projects these talented artists have created.
I have created three projects for you today, the first one is a two page scrapbook layout. I used two different sets from LSHD, The Fun in the Sun monkeys and Pool Time Fun.
  I used Echo park paper from the "Summertime" collection for my background paper and the rest is from my collection (other than the swim trunks for the waterhose monkey, that is Echo Park "Splash" paper). The sentiment I created using fonts from my computer. 
The next project is a simple card, I used the Hey Diddle Diddle Collection, I just love this collection, it is just so darn cute (like all of the LSHD patterns) I made this for a small child so I kept it very simple and without small embellishments so there was no issues. I also just love the My Pink Stamper "Punnylicious" stamp, it is so perfect! (Isn't it udderly amazing that the cow could jump so high LOL)
My final project is a super cute outside patio lantern, I used the Chasing Fireflies Collection, this set is just darling!

I used a gallon pickle jar and layered up vinyl to create my patio lantern, this is perfect for folks (like me) with young children. I had my husband poke holes in the lid (just like the jars we all used when we were chasing fireflies as children) and He painted it black for me, this way I can light the candle and it will get oxygen and can burn but my little one is safe. A little bit of ribbon and it is so cute on the table while we eat Al Fresco!
I am giving away one pattern Collection of your choice ($10 or less) from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs to one lucky Follower!

Michelle said...

My favorite project that you did has to be your patio latern... and I think I like it the most because of the sand in it.... I live in the mountians but, I also love the beach. All of your projects are great but, that is my favorite one.
