Studio Calico Blog Hop

We are doing another blog hop at Studio Calico today to celebrate the fact that Countryside and State Fair are now in the shop!! I know that many of you have been waiting to get your hands on these products!! Well now you can stock up!! Yippeeee! 

All of us design team members have created a layout to showcase some of the products….. Here is mine:

Nate skate blog hop

I cannot get enough of the State Fair Label Stickers and the Tags. For some reason those tags just always tell me to cut them into flags so I can use them to create banners! πŸ™‚  I also used the Sideshow Paper, the DieCut Cream Ledger Paper, Step Right Up Paper, and the backside of the County Line Paper (for my background). 

At first I had pulled out some of the pink products like the Cotton Candy Paper and the Pink Notions to create a layout of Emily but then the bright reds, blues and greens from these other products were just calling my name so I switched gears and made this layout about our little Nathan and his nickname – Nate Skate. I kept it pretty clean and simple so the photos could shine!

I know I didn't use any mists on this layout but I also have to give a shout out to the Mister Huey's mists in these two product lines because the colors are FAB!!! (I especially LOVE piglet, bonny blue and lemonade!!!) Seriously some of my faves now!! I have a feeling they will go fast so be sure to snag some of those if you share my passion for misting!! I think my bottles of piglet and lemonade are already running low because I have used them so much! haha!!! 

As part of the blog hop we are all doing a giveaway on our blogs!!! Yay!!!! This is always the fun part for me — the fact that I get to share some of my favorite products with one of you!! 

I am giving away the State Fair Label Stickers, the State Fair Tags and the State Fair Notions.





To enter the contest simply leave a comment here on this post and tell me something fun or interesting about yourself! I always love a chance to get to know my readers a little bit better! The contest will be closed on Monday, April 18th at which point I will draw a winner at random.

Now, on to the hopping part of the blog hop…… be sure to continue on to the next blog so you can see another fun layout and also enter to win some more Studio Calico goodies!! I am going to be hopping along with all of you so I can see what they all did!! 

The next stop is: Nicole Harper's blog! Have fun and good luck!

    You might find interesting: Before kids I was a Paraglider pilot, now four kids later (it happened as soon as I was pregnant with #1) I don’t feel comfortable taking any unnecessary risks. I love that I was so carefree and daring, once upon a time, but also cherish that I now have so much to loose.

I blubbered like a baby at the last piano recital because I couldn’t believe that was my boy up there. Just a brag on my boy, he was the most advanced student out of 30 piano students. Bet you can’t tell I’m a proud mama, huh?

    Fun colors, fun layout! I really like the bright colors of this release.
    Let’s see…something interesting about me? Well, I really don’t like the outdoors. Where I live, it’s often hot and humid and there are bugs outside! Ironically, I married a man who loves the outdoors. And even more surprising: I became a Girl Scout leader for my daughter’s troop. (God help the children. πŸ˜‰ )
    Funny what love does to change things, right?
