Creative Charms Blog Hop!

Welcome to my little section of the Creative Charms blog hop!

You should have come here via Amber’s blog. (I don't want you to miss any of the words in the secret phrase!)

The layout I wanted to share today is one that posed some challenges during the design process but I am pleased with the result!

This is the scrapbooking group that I am so happy to be part of. They are five wonderful ladies and we have so much fun together! We are at our favorite getaway scrapbooking weekend, Crop Around the Clock (CATC) (croparoundtheclock.ning.com). This fantastic crop, held at the Four Points Sheraton in Greensburg, PA is sponsored every spring and fall by my favorite local scrapbook store, Art-Tech Supplies (arttechsupplies.ning.com), also in Greensburg, PA.

We decorate our space and dress to coordinate with our decorations! This particular day at CATC we were Scrappin’ Disney Divas with castle and all!

Our decorated table:

My layout:

I used my Gypsy/Expression combo (love them both) to create the pink overlay by welding together shapes and letters from several different cartridges. Since it is a Diva layout I just had to use some Creative Charms Gradient Gem Stickers - PINK and Vintage Jewels - CLEAR to bling it up!!!

I am doing a giveaway of some fun and fabulous Creative Charms goodies!! All you have to do to enter is become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post. The winner will be announced on Monday, May 2nd so be sure to check back!

Please hop by all of the designers’ blogs (the list is posted on the Creative Charms blog if you lose your way) to discover all of the words in the secret phrase. All you have to do is gather all of the words in the order of the hop and email the secret phrase to Midori to be entered to win the Grand Prize - it is both May’s Kit AND Deal of the month! Wow!!! (details on the Creative Charms blog)

Oh yeah, the word that I am to share with you is:

Jan's Blog is your next stop on the hop....

Thanks so much for stopping by and please stop back soon!

What are you waiting for? Keep on hopping! :o)

Don't you just love to "weld"!? It makes projects look so professional. Well, it does fool my non-scraping friends. How'd you do that? hehehe.. talent, I tell them..pure talent. (Design Studio..!)
