July Blog Hop

This month's inspiration is all about pairing up beautiful summer colors as this wonderful season begins to come to a close.  Put together some citrusy hues along with some pretty floral images to create the perfect project that embodies everything summer.

When I first saw this month's inspiration picture I was always drawn to the "Monet" type background with its subtle pinks, blues, yellows and greens, so when I was playing on SAF Saturday and created this piece of paper with leftover ink and shaving cream I knew it was what I was looking for July's Blog Hop Challenge.  Hawaiian Shores Ink embossed, Simply Chartreuse Ink and CS.Melon Berry Ink and CS,Berry Sorbet Ink and CS, Harvest Gold Ink and CS, Edger # 2, Life is Sweet Stamp set, left over Marble Dye Technique from SAF. Thank you for stopping by for a look. Have a great Day!

When shopping in trendy crafty stores, all of the beautiful embellishments certainly provide amazing eye candy.  But sometimes your wallet can feel a bit intimidated by the costs of all those beauties, and that tends to make you a bit hesitant to actually use them if you actually purchase them.
