Pets Blog Hop with The Creating Blog Hops Cafe

Welcome to this month's blog hop with...
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'

Love is in the air this month, so we wanted to show a little love to a our Fur-Babies.

Here we are in our second month on the last Saturday of the month to inspire you with some wonderful projects. This month's theme is..."Pet's"
So, grab yourself a Latte' and hop along with us while we proudly show off our projects and our Fur-Babies.

Your first stop on the hop will be with...

Robin Lane from Create-A-Latte

Here's my project:

I used an older piece of Paper Loft paper. 
Then I used an overlay with paw prints.  I layered different papers from my stash.  I used my new We R Memory Keepers washi tape my SIL gave me for Christmas.  It was the BEST present!  It was the washi tape and large dispenser from Costco.  I didn't belong (to Costco) but knew about that item and wanted it!  I was thrilled to receive it!

This is really old tulle that I have gathered up with a pin with a wood button.  I tacked it all down with mini glue dots which are also holding the "ruffles".

Another one of these embellishments accented with buttons.

 Nostalgia button accents and actual vintage buttons from my stash, flossed.  I used an assortment of ribbons from my stash and tucked this one under one of the buttons. I punched the heart with a Creative Memories 1.5" heart punch and added another button.

The letters are Tim Holtz grungeboard.  I misted with Tattered Angels shimmering mist Crème de Cocoa and chalked with Colorbox dark brown cat's eye.

Oh!  I forgot to journal and since there is an acetate overlay on this page, I had to use a slick writer, the brown is not really brown enough.  I am not exactly excited about how it turned out.  I may have to work on this more...

Now, for some candy. This month we will be giving one lucky person two Becky Higgins Project Life Themed Kits, one is the Dogs Kit and the other one is the Cats Kit. For your chance to win this amazing blog candy you must hop through each one of our talented crafters blogs, be sure to leave everyone a little blog lovin', and if you are not already a follower please become one to each of ladies so that you do not miss a single project that they make.

If you get lost along the way here is the entire line-up of today's hop for you to get back on track and not miss a single project. And don't forget to leave everyone a little blog lovin' and become a follower for your chance to win some blog candy.
