AC BLOG HOP!



Hi Hoppers!
Hopefully you just arrived here from the fabulous Amy Heller's blog!
I have LOVED Amy's work for some time now and still cannot begin to tell you how stoked I am that I am on the same team as she is!! SQUEAL!!!!
If not, you need to check it out!

If you just happened here by chance, then you need to start hopping HERE.

One thing I LOVE (seriously, LOVE - and YES, I am showing my 'nerdy inner crafter' side here ;) )
to do when working with one manufacturer is mixing their product lines.
As you can see on my LO, I was inspired by my Little Man's use of colour on his
drawing of the world map (well his interpretation at least).
 I mixed ALL FIVE of American Crafts' new lines (you can see product details below) on this LO.

***
Not too sure if this is neccesary BUT
(I think it's really cute, so I am going to share anyway)
just in case you are trying to decipher the 'countries' on LM's map, from left to right:
**The top island is 'PEI', where we travel in the summer and is broken into:
 'Sub' (the Subway where we always stop for lunch)
'house' (the cabin we stay at with our family)
'faire' (the Sandspit Amusement Park that we visit)

**The blue country in the ocean is named 'Santa'. (tee hee)

**And the country below is made up of 'Canada' (red),  'beach' (orange)
'mud' (brown) & 'jungle' (green) 

(Proud Mom moment here, I really love his whiteboard drawings.)

Fall Leaves (35530) - Nightfall Paper,Santa Baby (35482) - Hollyday Paper, Sunny Day (35608) - Daydreams Paper, Is It Any Wonder (35556) - Amy Tangerine Fabric Paper, Petunia's Pastries (35532) - Garden Cafe Paper, Love Struck (59151) - Amy Tangerine Stamps, Slate (53249) - Thickers Chipboard Letter Stickers, Plastic Buttons (85573) - Elements Brads & Buttons, Smile (42227) - Remarks Books Journalling & Accent Stickers, Friends (42228) - Remarks Dimensional Stickers, Amy (42212) - Remarks Letter Stickers, White (71081) - Cardstock, Black (71082) - Cardstock


***Additional Product- Mister Huey's (orchard)
 



PLUS - I have an American Crafts prize to share with one of you!
Leave me a comment for a chance to win this fun little set of stamps:
***(if you follow my blog, I will put your name in twice-just note it in the comments!)***
**edted**Don't forget to  head back to the AC blog  and leave a comment and let us know you commented on all the DT blogs and also which two lines you'd love to receive and why! The winner will be drawn randomly at 9am PST on Wednesday September 21st 2011
Now make sure you hop on over to Cindy Tobey's blog (another scrappy idol of mine!!)
Thanks for visiting!
