Paper Creations Ink Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!

Are you ready for a blog hop? Paper Creations Ink is sponsoring this blog hop using The Stamping Boutique’s images by Tracey Malnofski.

The theme is “Enjoying Summer!” You are enjoying the summer, right? Here in the middle of the US we are definitely feeling the summer heat, but we just have to remember the blizzard we had to cool off. LOL!

The blog candy for PCI’s hop is:

How do you win this wonderful package! You must leave a comment on each blog or hop stop and Mr. Random will choose the winner from all the comments. This blog hop starts today, Saturday, at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, July 24, at 7 p.m.

My first creation is from one from Tracey’s imagination “Beach Baby with Hat.” Isn’t she darling? I have colored her with my favorite media, Copics and Spica pens. My paper and pearl embellishments are from my stash. I probably purchased both from Hobby Lobby. I used a punch for the sea weed.

My next one is also from The Stamping Boutique titled “Summer Laundry Line.” This was a lot of fun to color. I used my Copics and Spicas again, but the background was completed with chalks. I wanted that soft sky look, and I haven’t figured out how to accomplish that with Copics.

Now let’s go hopping! Here’s is the hop list. Remember you must leave a comment on each hop stop.
Paper Creations Ink (this is where you should have come from)
Aletha (you are here now!)
Karen (this is your next stop)

Thanks for hopping with us all! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate contacting me.
