Practical Scrappers July Blog Hop



  Thank you so much for stopping by hope you found your way here from Kristys blog.. I hope you are enjoying seeing all the creative uses for things we have hoarded.
  This is a true dig out the stash layout. I am in a yahoo group that was doing a Christmas in July card challenge. I decided not to participate thinking that I really did not have enough Christmas papers to do it and not wanting to buy more right now. So when this challenge was given I dug out my Christmas papers and what was I thinking!!!!. I have a ton of tired old papers. And a good dose of embellies too.
So I dug up this picture and decided to do something with it. This was in 1995 and I love that the facial expressions truly fit each of my children. The girls did and do adore their big brother who at the time could have cared less.LOL
 I used the July week 1  sketch from Colorful Creations


The papers are all from an old recollection stack that I bought my first year scrapping.The chipboard snowflakes and the flowers came from Michaels grab bags 2 years ago. Hmmm now that I have all this stuff drug out I might make a card or 2!
  I have not done a blog hop in forever so I would love to give away a little treat. Just leave me a comment so that I can find you and I will use random,org Sunday evening to pick a winner..... Please shipping in the US only.

  Thank you so much for stopping by and head on over to Majkens blog to see her wonderful creation!
