4th of July LO...another BBTB Blog Hop

Hey there! I've gotten a bit of a jump on the summer holidays and getting some LOs done for my future in-laws. I used this week's Bitten By the Bug challenge which was to use the Frame from the Storybook cartridge (page 56 of the manual). Also, as part of the challenge, Regina has so generously sponsored the Blog Hop we are having this week. For my challenge I used the 4th of July from her Holiday Big Words printable stamp set from The Cutting Café. And this set is what you could win for the BBTB Blog Hop!! Lots of stuff you can do with this set!

For those that have never done a Blog Hop, it's a piece of cake! All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and I'll enter you in the contest to win the Holiday Big Words printable stamp set. And then you can go onto to the next blog, which you will see who, later on in this post, who is also giving away something from The Cutting Café. Have your posts into me by Saturday, May 23rd (midnight EST) and I will announce the winner on Sunday by using random.org.

So here is my creation:


Here's the frame from Storybook:


And this is one of the printable stamps from the Holiday Big Word set. I printed the larger print on colored card stock and adhered it on top:




And a spot for some journaling:


Fireworks:
-CS: Bazzill Basics "Ruby Slipper" & "Mocha Devine", The Paper Company "Primary Blue" and DCWV Glitter Stack
-PPs: ProvoCraft "Juniper Stars on Fossil" and DCWV The Summer Stack (2008)
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox "Blue Iris", "Chestnut Roan", "Merlot" and "French Blue"
-Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Teresa Collins "Memories" and The Cutting Café "Holiday Big Words"
-Stickers: Jolee Boutique Photo Corners "Blue Daisies"
-Cricut Cartridge: Storybook for the decorative frame cut at 7"
-Misc: Adhesive, Dew Drops

OK, now leave me a comment, then go on to the OH so very talented lady, Enfys, and see her amazing creation and then enter in her Blog Hop contest and see another link to another blog. Hop away!!!
