Give A Girl A ... and A Flair For Buttons Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Give A Girl A ... and A Flair For Buttons Blog Hop! 

This hop is full of inspiration from both teams and there are prizes to be won ... yay!!! So hop along with us and enjoy the ride!

If you have come from the amazingly talented Diane then you are right on track. If not you should go to the very start with {a flair for buttons}.

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 flair on my SMASH* page.

I just love to SMASH* - its my version of scrapbooking but much quicker and more fun in many ways. I'm more tempted to be more "adventurous" with SMASH*ing and not worry so much if things don't turn out quite as planned, remember that it is as much about the journey as the destination. This page has a photo of my youngest daughter leading our dog Sheridan around - I'm not really sure if the dog is all that happy about it lol. I've sprayed some white doilies with Color Shine and they turned out amazing. Actually I sprayed a heap of them in different colours so they are ready whenever I need them. 

From Give A Girl A ... I've used the My Buddy stamp set (walkies, my biddy, woof woof, just want to be with you, & It's a dogs life) and You are the best stamp set (the banners)Use the code KARYN for 15% off your Give A Girl A... order.

From A Flair For Buttons I've used "Got Dog" flair - aren't they so fun!

I've used my Blue SMASH* folio (and it is finished now woo hoo!!) and I've also used some Amy Tangerine Yes Please papers, puffy stickers and diecuts, Simple Stories SN@P papers, Studio Calico wood veneers, Heidi Swapp Color shine (amethyst and sweet cherry), and doilies and twine from my stash.

It wouldn't be a blog hop without prizes would it!! So make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs to be in the running to win either some flair or a stamp set. Entries will close midnight Monday.

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

Here is the Hop list if you get lost
