Give A Girl A... and Saturated Canary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Give A Girl A ... and Saturated Canary Blog Hop!
This hop is full of inspiration from both teams and there are heaps of prizes to be won, from Saturated Canary images to a 3 month subscription to Give A Girl A ... stamp sets, to each designer hosting a giveaway. So hop along with us and enjoy the ride!

If you have come from the amazingly talented and beautiful Krista then you are right on track. If not you should go to the very start with the gorgeous Kellie.

I'm so excited to be part of this hop. I just love the products from both of these businesses and have had a lot of fun using their stamps and images on my SMASH* page.

I just love to SMASH* - its my thing at the moment. Today's page has a photo of my youngest daughter with a yummy pink meringue cookie shaped like a dog. When I asked her if I could share the answer was "no way ... you wish jelly fish". lol!

From Give A Girl A ... I've used the Keen as Mustard stamp set ("Un real banana peel", "you wish jelly fish", "love" and "insta moment"),  Yesterday stamp set ("today", "3", "1", and "August"), and Best Friends stamp set from tomorrows March release ("I love this girl" and "blah blah blah"). Use the code KARYN for 15% off your Give A Girl A... order.

From Saturated Canary I've used the adorable "Jelly Bug". I have loved Krista's images like forever and this girl is one of my all time favs. She reminds me of my youngest (yes, the gorgeous girl in the photo). And she goes perfectly with the "you wish jelly fish" saying! I've coloured this image using my cool grey copics, I love this look!

This is a page in my Blue SMASH* folio. This is one of my favourite SMASH books as many of the pages are quite quirky. I've left the other side blank because i like it as it is and also my SMASH* books get quite bulky when I use every page.
I love to splatter paint on many of my pages and this page was no exception.
I sprayed a white doilie with turquoise coloured glimmer mist and let it dry - just seems to pop on this page! I am also loving using sequins at the moment.

I've also used some of the October Afternoon Woodland Park collection and alphas, Amy Tangerine ribbon, Stampin' Up! bird paper clip, Chalkboard seven seas glimmer mist, Dear Lizzy lucky charm bits, and doilies, tag, bag and twine from my stash.

I'll be giving away one of the fun Give A Girl A ... stamp sets to one lucky person.
to be in the running all you need to do is
- leave me a comment
- participate in this Blog Hop and leave all the other ladies some comment love too!
I will draw a winner on Wednesday March 6th.

Now continue this hop with the lovely Maria Therese where I'm sure you will find some more amazing inspiration.
