Blogiversary Blog Hop!!!!!

Diana Fisher is celebrating her 3 year blog anniversary by giving the anniversary gifts to YOU — the readers! Hop on through the Blog Hop to find prizes and inspiration along the way. 

Plus, there's a chance to play along with us! Use the sketch Diana made, link your entry back at her blog, and you could win a $30 shop credit to Scrapbook Circle. 

I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful Blog Hop!   I first "met" Diana through Sketchy Thursdays a few years ago.  We have served on a few teams together and I have always adored her work.

As many of you know, Sketchy Thursdays closed down earlier this year, and I miss it dearly.  But Diana's sketches are still appearing here and there and it felt so good to work with one of her sketches again!  Here is the sketch that she has created for this hop.



I immediately knew what photos I was going to use because I have had them sitting on my desk for a while now.  I had a hard hard time finding papers to go with these photos because of the colors in the photos (dark hunter green and sunshine yellow???  ugh).  Anyways, I finally decided on the light teals, greens and yellows of the Crate Paper Pretty Party collection.




I had one extra photo than the sketch called for, but I fit it in.  I also played around with the size and arrangement of the triangles for a LONG time until I got what I wanted.  I like how the triangles help your eyes move to the photos.

You have until April 30th to complete the hop and link up your sketch challenge entry to be eligible for the hop prizes!  There are many other prizes to be won, too, so please check out all the blogs and then finish up at Diana's.
