Craft Your Passion's 1st Blog Hop Today Sept 16~18th

Good Morning Everyone!

It is time for the long awaited 1st time Craft Your Passion Blog Hop!

I am so excited to be joining this wonderfully creative bunch of crafter's as one of the Guest Designers for the month of September.

If you came from Jodi's blog then you are on the right track...if you want to start from the beginning head over to Craft Your Passion. You will not want to miss any of the amazing projects we have to share with you.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.
Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment. Once you have finished the hop we would like you to create a project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

For this hop I have 2 projects to share with you.

The first is my very 1st Paper Bag Mini Album!

I have to say these are so much fun to make and I can not wait till I have some more time to further embellish it.
I used this super adorable image from Bugaboo Stamps~ Deacon~School Sign It
He was colored with my copics and cut out.
After I put my paper bag mini together he was glued to the front cover.
I used The Cutting Cafe numbers from School Days and punched them out with my 1" circle punch for the date.
All the paper for this album is from DCVW~The Grade School Pack
The twine is from Trendy Twine in Peppermint Stick.
Do you see that adorable little scissors and apple~ Those are these really cute adhesive Glitter Shapes from Recollections. Perfect for my back to school album.
I have not decided if I am keeping this album or one of the kids teachers are receiving it as a gift.

My next project is a simple card using and adorable image from The Paper Shelter
I used the pre colored image Cute Little Clown and added her to sparkly green card stock.
I added an embossed line border around the image and stamped
my sentiment using My Creative Time~Many Greetings set
I made my own skittles and colored them with my copics.

I do have alittle something to offer all you hoppers!

I found these super adorable Halloween stamps at Michael's

AWWW so adorable right!
