pl week 21

falling behind a smidge. here is week 21!

Friday, June 01, 2012 blog hop

hey there hoppers. if you aren't joining me from amy sorenson's blog, hop on back to the beginning for all the crazy details!
happy birthday 3rd! i've been with from the very beginning. there are not too many of us pioneers left. simple was gone and i felt a little homeless when the email came to join i whooped! i stay because i have a found a group of like-minded women who have similar scrapbooking beliefs  - that it is the story that matters most - then a little good design, some good photography, and a burst of color. these ladies are so filled with talent and provide me with inspiration every day. i feel like i belong here. what's not to love?

one little shout out before i go on. marnie flores is the beauty and brains behind we would be nothing without marnie. she plots, plans, nudges, shoves, designs, markets, writes, problem solves and does a million other things that make this site shine everyday. without her, there would be no she's along the stops here, so please when you get to her site LEAVE HER SOME LOVE, say THANK YOU, because truly she is IT.

this month our gallery is themed perfect pairs. we were to draw inspiration from our design team partner whether that be a page, a post or any other prompt that we fancied. our themes are really loose because it makes for interesting galleries! i drew the magnificent christa paustenbaugh, so i headed off to her gallery at to see what i could find. i didn't have to go far. may 2012's gallery included this lovely...

i decided that i just had to lift this page. so here is my take on her masterpiece...

i took my inspiration from the hexagons on her page as well as the large flag element and title treatment. i tried to put my own spin on it shrinking the overall area and adding some layered papers behind the main design.

in honor of's birthday, i'm giving away a TEN DOLLAR gift card to Design House Digital! leave your name, your email address (you know with the DOT and the COM), and tell me what you love about! even if you don't digi scrap you'll find some awesome printables at design house digital and loads of project life goodies. so put your name in, you'll be surprised at all the goodness you find! i will pull a winner sunday evening!

you are collecting letters to win a super prize. my letter is...

next up, christa paustenbaugh which is funny because that's who i swapped with!  :) thanks for hopping by!
