More Hopscotch and our Winner!

Greetings and Happy Tuesday! Today we have just a little more Basic Grey Hopscotch inspiration for you from yours truly! That's right! I got a chance to play with some of the papers and embellishments and had so much fun! Take a look:

Hopscotch Altered Box and Card Set by GenCraft

I found a plain, kraft carry-all box stored away in my stash and decided to alter it with the Basic Grey Hopscotch collection.

Side of my box

Other side of my box

Back of my box

Since it was a card box, I decided to make a few cards to go with it! Just a few! LOL!

All of my cards are scrap-lifted from Basic Grey's Hopscotch Class Kit and Online Card Class. Some are exact and some I modified a little. Aren't they cute, though?

Here are all the Supplies I Used: Basic Grey Hopscotch - Boy Band, Double Dutch, Four Square, Kick The Can, Kissing Tag, Monkey Bars, Passing Notes, Penny Candy, Playground, Potsy, Sidewalk Chalk, Skip to my Lou, Skipping, Alphabet Stickers, Element Stickers, Chip Sticker Shapes, Bloomers, Pieces, Pops and Stitched Brads.

And now for the winner of our Hopscotch give-away! Congratulations to:

Bo Bunny Crush

Happy Thursday! I love Valentine's Day. No, it's not a big holiday in my house - we don't really do much for it. We often ignore the whole thing because my daughter's birthday is the day before. I just love the colors - pink, red, white, black and brown. They are just amazing together! Throw in some hearts (and a little dark chocolate) and I'm sold!

Today we have some Valentine's Day inspiration for you from Designer Sandi Clarkson and yours truly! I saw the Bo Bunny Crush collection and I just couldn't help myself! LOL! Let's take a look:

What a fantastic idea! I'm firing up the shredder right now...

With her one left-over sheet of paper, Sandi made this cute little gift bag with her Cricut. I may be a little partial to the treat bags, but I LOVE this!
