Happy New Year!!! Today is the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop…even thought it’s not on our typical “lat Wednesday of the month.” A few folks needed a bit more time (busy Holiday season and all) so we decided to push the hop back a few days to give you as many projects to check out as possible. Also, since it’s the first, it’s time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! This time, we are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis.
Let’s start with the Bombshell Hop. December’s Hop theme was “Make it a Gift.” Meaning, no cards! Here’s my creation.
I used Love and Luck for this layout of my daughter. I intend to give it to my mom as part of an ongoing gift for my mom….but I am worried that it may find it’s way into one of my own albums. 😉
I colored the 3 swallows and the banners with watercolor markers and Copics.
The colors are off in this pic…they are a little too dark. But I wanted to see a closeup of my cutie from when she was 2, and the swallows.
I tried to mimic the colors in her shirt. It makes me sad that she doesn’t fit into that shirt anymore. It was one of my favorites. I thought gray on a little girl’s flowery shirt was so unusual and cool. Here is the full Bombshell Hop list.
And now on to the newest DICC. Again, we are sponsored by Rick St. Dennis this time around. And, if you’ve been checking out my side bar lately, you will see that I am now on Rick’s eam Glitter! Here’s the Itinerary.
