Craft Your Passion 1st Blog Hop

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges VERY FIRST  "Anything Goes" Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about all the changes our blog has gone through in the last couple of months and wanted to throw a party. What better way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!

If you have hopped over from 

, then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to join our hop from the beginning, please go to Craft Your Passion Challenges and follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest designers.

Each designer along the way is featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at Craft Your Passion Challenges for a chance to win one of several prizes.

But, there’s a twist. Be sure to visit all the stops and leave a comment. Once you have finished the hop we would like you to create a project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with our Linky tool.

While you are hopping, be sure to check out the blog candy the designer's have to offer you. You don't want to miss out on any of it!

Here are the Projects I created for you.

 My first Project is using a Stamp from Bugaboo if you have never been to their site todays the day. Bugaboo offers some great images with funny wonderful characters to work with. The image I used today is called Deacon-school sign it. I created a Pencil Holder for my youngest's daughter to give to her new third grade teacher. This is their first year going to Public School.

I used an old funnel cake container for the holder covered it with Paper Studio Letter themed paper.
I then trimmed the top and bottom in lace.
I used a school notebook looking scrap
paper I had not sure who made it. I inked the edges.
I colored my image with Copic Makers.
 I added glossy accents to the apples to make them shine.
I cut out the stars for a 12 x12 card stock I had and placed them on wobbles so the move.
I wrote on the board Welcome to the third grade in a copper looking gel pen. I did not come out so well in the pictures:(

My second Project for you today is a card. My Image comes from The Paper Shelter if you have never been to there site you need to check it out they have some great images. The image I am working with is called Cool Lolly.

I colored her with Copics:) The inside stamp is a clear stamp I can not quite recall the maker.I have had it for ever but it seemed perfect for her.

Now what hop is complete without a little blog candy:)
