Better Scrap Blog Hop is HERE!!!!

This post will remain at the top until Saturday, October 2. Please scroll for down for new posts.
Good Morning,
Today we are having our first blog hop at Better Living through Scrapbooking! You can go here to start from the beginning. If you have come to my blog from Kas, you are in the correct place! Our task today, show you our favorite style, introduce you to us. Well, if you follow my blog on a regular basis, you already know that my Honeybee is my everything! So I just had to scrap him!

I used some of our sponsor, Discount Cardstock Midnight Black #80 12 X 12 cardstock to mat the photo. I also used some of our October sponsor, Plaid, pop dots to lift the flower and leaves up. Instead of inking things up, I went with some Plaid White acrylic paint, and also used some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on the Thickers (SO).

All other papers, flowers, ribbons, pins, Lucky bingo card, and butterfly are part of the Lucky Girl Craft Kits.

I really had fun expressing myself in this layout. I think that I am really loving to dry brush the edges of paper with white paint as much as I love inking them! I also share how I adore using pretty flowers, ribbons, and pins on my layouts.

Better Living Through Scrapbooking has a fabulous prize pack up for grabs, thanks to Plaid! We will be giving away a Mod Podge starter pack, plus a selection of FolkArt paints, stencils and some Extreme Glitter! This prize pack is worth $50 retail, and will be awarded to one blog hop participant that comments on ALL of the blog posts during the hop.

I'll be giving away this fabby RAK on my blog as well! This is a darling little chipboard Kaiser Craft mini album. Be sure to follow my blog if you are inspired by my work, leave your comment here by noon on Saturday, October 2. Winner will be announced with my Better Scrap post on Sunday, October 3.

Now you are off to visit the ever so talented Katie. While there, leave her lots of love!

  1. I love your layout. What a great technique, painting instead of inking. I'll need to try that out.

    The two blogs before yours don't have the blog hop up so I had no place to comment for them. I'm glad to find the hop again.
