Welcome Paper Issues Blog Hoppers!

Hidey Ho Campers!  Welcome to my little stop on the blog hop!  If you are following the blogging order then you must've just come from Michelle Hernandez's fabulous little mini.  Isn't she terrific?
Well, without further adue, let me present my project for the hop.  It is a banner I made for my son for his 9th birthday announcing that I was getting him (us, lol!) a swimming pool!  Now, the FAVE part of it is the new Toy Box Crate Paper line.  It is absolutely perfect for my little armed forces freak.  I snuck in one of Crate's Emma's Shoppe papers just for good measure.

Of course the fact that it was for my son goes along with the fave theme as well, since I tell him often that he is my favorite person in the whole world.  :)







If you are familiar with Paper Issues, then you know that Cassie, our fierce and fearless leader is the absolute master of the banners.  I needed to make one to announce the pool, since that present was not going to be ready for him to "open" on his birthday.  This is the first banner I have ever made and let me tell you, they are fun!  Thanks so very much for joining us on this Paper Issues blog hop!! 

OH, I almost forgot - the juicy RAK I am sending one lucky follower!  If you want this delicious package sent to you, leave me a comment on either my project, or the RAK.  If you like my work please do become a follower!  :)


Next on your stop is the fabulously talented Kristy Dalman and her amazing blog The Odd Girl.  Go check her out or return to Paper Issues (did you see the fantastic kit you can win there?)

  16. Love your banner--and what a cool, fun way to surprise your son!! I love CP toybox too--but all I have done thus far is fondle the papers and embellies...

    btw, your link to Kristy's blog routes you through FB, for some odd reason. It works, but just takes a little longer than usual. thought you should know!

  47. I just found your blog and am drawn to the eclectic strangeness of it all. I really like your style of crafting and the dimension the "found" items lends to your projects is inspiring! Not sure if I'm too late for the RAK giveaway, but I am a certified stalker now anyway. I love the banner too. So much fun to create stuff like that for the kiddos.
