Let's Scrap Blog Hop!! It's Here!!

Hello!  Welcome to your next stop in the:


If you came here from Jody Spiegelhoff at SpiegelMom Scraps!, then you are in the right place!  If you did not, Mindi Brown at Scrap Chat and Coffee Talk has the hop order to help you find your way!


I am so excited to be apart of such a fun and large blog hop at Let's Scrap!  Since joining Let's Scrap, I have made more cards and jump started my scrapbooking!  The sketches are awesome!  The challenges are fun and creative, and the folks there are the best!  Everyone is so friendly and helpful!


Here is my sketch I am showcasing for the blog hop:




Here's my card...




Here's a close up of the detail.  Everything here is from the Making Memories line Chloe's Closet.  I had taken a class at Creating Keepsakes University a few moons ago, and this was left over product from that class.  I still love the colors of this line!  I was even able to work in a pin just like the sketch--but you don't have to, I promise! :)

Here's my Blog Candy!




Goodies include:


  • Beautiful red flowers from Petaloo
  • Hey Girlfriend stamp set by Unity
  • Pretty White Butterfly
  • Stella and Rose Decorative Trims (My Minds Eye)
  • Smash Mark--I thought why not throw in a man?  ;)
  • Pink Bakers Twine by My Minds Eye
  • Trinkets (charms) by My Mind's Eye


Now that I have written it for the world to see, I can't take any of it!  LOL!!

Hi Katy,
WOW! You made all 50 cards, impressive! I only managed 11. I am a member of LS and your blog. I like the way you replaced the solid strip on the sketch with the variety of paper strips. It added a lot to the final design. I also like the flower with the button, I love buttons! Thanks for hosting!
