Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I used a silver Ikea frame that I bought ages ago for like $10. I used a 5-minute epoxy (pheew!) to adhere the Lego blocks I stole from Gabe's stash to the front of the completed frame. After an overnight cure, the blocks are super sturdy and he can attached and detach his mini-men creations easily!
Silver Glitter Glitz. The lining paper is the backside of some retired Fanfare star print paper that I stamped repeatedly with the line image in Sunny Yellow ink.
And I'm linking this to the Moxie Fab Household Items Challenge - they've got a gob of super fun challenges posted right now! I'm also linking to a fab new blog recommended to me by the awesome Julie from local scrapbook store Whimzee's: Today's Creative Blog Get Your Craft On Linky Party. Really amazing projects - go check it out!
Sketch 159 from the Card Patterns Blog - they always have the cutest sketches! I chose the Color Throwdown #185 scheme - in this case, Grey Wool, Blush, Pear, and Black. I am a big Sweet Leaf gal, so Pear was a bit of a stretch for me. That why I love color challenges - makes you reach for a pad you are neglecting! Finally, since I am also a super flower loving gal, this set was a little butch for me (says the woman with three boys)...so I took heart from the Moxie Fab DIY Your Own Embellishments Challenge and made some fun 3-D flowers using my Art Philosophy Cartridge! I cut them in three sizes starting at 3/4", curled the petals on each layer, attached them in the centers with white eyelets (remember those? I think I forgot how to use my crop-a-dile, lol) and topped the eyelets with self adhesive sparkles. The ribbon I got with a Groupon at my local scrapbook store, Life's a Scrapbook, so I don't know who makes it - but I loved it enough to buy 5 yards for my stash...in two colors...just in case...
Heart 2 Heart Embossing challenge. I inked my Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder with Powder Puff Black ink I picked up at the Quick Quotes booth at CK this year. Then I debossed the background with the inked folder! For the bottom half I used the cleaned folder to emboss the dots, which I sanded to expose the fabulous white core of our cardstock! There - girlier than I thought possible...and that grid stamp is going to be living on a block on my stamp table for a while!
