Abby's First Blogoversary Blog Hop

Hi all! I hope you are enjoying yourself on this hop!  I know we have some VERY talented ladies participating and I can't wait to see all the fun projects. If you have arrived here from Christel's blog over at Scrappin Sista then you are in the right spot, if you would like to start from the beginning head on over to Abby's blog at Scrapbookaholic Abby.
If you have been following Abby for a while you know that she creates the cutest stuff!  She is, of course, a scrapbooking girl so I thought I would create a scrapbook page in honor that.  I used some of her favorite things for this page. First off, the page is based on a sketch from pagemaps.  I love page maps and my friend Nancy got me the page maps book for my birthday last year to give me lots of inspiration in my scrapbooking!  I highly suggest them.  Next, I used more of Abby's favorite things, my cricut to cut the title, some bling in the form of buttons and brads, and lastly a Market Street Stamp simply stitched border to do the square for the middle of my page.  I absolutely love how this came out, although I think this may be the last time I do an accordian flower. I just was not having luck making that thing stick to the page no matter how much glue I used.  It finally did and hopefully it stays now!
Here is my project, I also used one of my favorite things, Stampin UP! paper and stamps.  I love these colors and as soon as I put them all together, I knew I had to create a page with them.  Luckily I had this cute photo of my kids from a recent photo shoot my girlfiend, Linnea over Images to Adore did.  She is so talented and I loved all the photos she took of us.


Supplies Used: 
Paper: Stampin UP! Soft Suede, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, and Pink Pourette, retired DSP on the flower
Ink: Stampin UP! White Craft and Soft Suede
Blossom twine is from the Twinery
Stamps: Stampin UP! Fabulous Phrases and Market Street Simply Stitched Borders
Stampin UP! Buttons and Flower brads

What's a blog hop without some blog candy right?  My sponsor for this hop is Stampin Daisies and I am giving away a super cute stamp set that has just been released!  Here is a photo of the set:


To be entered to win, just leave me a comment below and I would love if you became a follower!  Take care and have fun hopping!!
Your next stop is Amanda over  My Scrappin Obsession!
