Summer Fun Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the Summer Fun Blog Hop. We 13 very talented ladies who have made some fantastic projects for you to view. I hope you enjoy our little piece of summer.

I am offer ing blog candy of a Brand New Cricut Cartridge called "Wall Decor and More". To be able to win this cartridge you will need to:

1) Be a follower
2) Leave a comment on Saturday and Sunday posts (I will explain why both days in a minute)
3) Leave a comment once on all the hop participants (either Saturday or Sunday)


The reason for the both day on my blog post is todays post was made 75% by my 10 year old daughter. She has been asking me and asking me to let her post on one of my hops, so today is her day. Tomorrow you will see my post. LOL it is so much fun being a parent.

Ok enough here is my little ones Summer Fun project:


The book is a Teachers Journal book I purchased at the Dallor Tree. I covered it with "Dream Street" pattern cardstock paper and some textured cardstock that I had in my scrap drawer. That is the only part of the journal that I did (oh, the inside of the back and front are also covered in pattern cardstock.


The Die Cuts she used are from my scrap box of extras that I cut and never used. She did all the decorating with the gems and rhinestones herself. She also added the stickers with her name and 2 small inches that I had in my spare file.


She used my Copic marker to color the finger nails, hair and to add the mouth. Then she decided to she wanted to add some more bling and stickled the grass skirt.


She then said it still isn't bingie enough and added gems to all the flowers and stickles to the middles of the Hybiscus flowers. So tons of bling lol.

I hope you enjoyed my littles summer project, and hope that you stop by on Day 2 of the hop to see my summer creation.

Your next stop will be: Monica at Scraps 2 Treasures .

Here is a list of all the hop participants, so if you get lost here is where you can find your way back.

  11. Kathryn,
    Always a pleasure to hop with you... you are soooo lucky that your daughter, also enjoys crafting like you do... I'd give anything to have my 15 year old sit and craft with me... I haven't given up yet. She's afraid to touch my Gypsy, Cricut Expressions, but, she will play with my markers and my paper punches!!!! So there's some hope yet.

    Your little one did a great job and I happen to LOVE all of the bling!!! I like how the grass skirt came out.

    You know I'm a long time follower of your blog, and I'm always happy to hop with you.

    Thanks,
