Papertrey Blog Hop

Good morning everybody,

Its 5.30AM on the 26th of Feb in Australia. Its a great Friday morning! Kids and hubby still asleep. I am sitting with my morning cup of aromatic freshly brewed coffee and typing this down. This is my second blog hop with Papertrey. Anyway, I loved Dawn Mcvey's Top Ten and Top Ten additions stamp set. Best of all I loved the scrapbook page, she made using the stamp set and scalloped square punch. Here is the picture of Dawn's scrapbook page.

I love the colors, the layout and the heart shape and some pictures added. She is brillant and very creative.
I tried to recreate this for this month's papertrey blog hop. I used the Top Ten and Top Ten Addition stamp set and a similar layout but I framed the page instead. Better to see my take than me trying to explain it!

 

 I enjoyed making this. Loved the end result. Here are some closeups.



 

  

I have used tag punch instead of scallop square punch, added more dimensions and textures, used blue color instead of red and some more stamping using some SU stamps.


I recieved WOW! from my husband for this one, the moment he saw it. So, thanks for the fabulous inspiration Dawn! You are very creative.Love all your creations.Thanks for another awesome blog hop and thanks for visiting my blog.Kids are awake and I got to go and help them get ready for school. Have a great time hopping.
Hugs
