Practical Scrappers Blog Hop! LINK WITH LOVE

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers "Linking with Love" Blog Hop!  We believe it is important to always give credit when it is due to another crafter.  For this unique hop all of our design team members used the same inspiration piece to create their project.  Each of them will make an example of themselves as to how to properly "Link with Love" and credit the inspiration.  We'll be running the hop thru Noon EST on Sunday - so you have plenty of time to get thru it!


Liz Qualman created this beautiful layout and we have all used it for inspiration.  Each of us will tell what part we took our inspiration from.  The whole hop will culminate at Liz's blog where she'll provide us with a new sketch for inspiration.



Many of the designers are providing prizes at their stop and Practical Scrappers is providing a prize for one person who becomes a follower at each stop (for all the details head over to Practical Scrappers).

For my page, I decide to stick with the general design of the layout.  But I was also feelin' the Spring theme, so I used some outdoor photos that we took from a recent trip to the playground! It has been such a mild winter, and we have been enjoying the outdoors a lot!  Kyler has been getting his first experiences with the swing at the playground!
I used this months kit from Birds Of A Feather featuring Authentique Genuine line.


Instead of using circles around the edges I used some strips of paper and then popped it off of a corrugated cardboard background.  I loved Liz's use of banner stickers so I used a lot of them on my page.



I also lifted her placement of butterflies and machine stitched their paths.


Hope you are enjoying the blog hop!!!!
