CTO Pool Party Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

The Pool Party Blog Hop is finally here!!!  If you just came from Amy, then you are in the right spot.  If you just stumbled upon this hop, make sure you click HERE to start at the beginning.  CTO is hosting this hop and they are having a giveaway, as well as there will be lots of creative "pool" themed projects along the way and Awesome Blog Candy at each stop.  You must hurry though, as the hop closes on Sunday!

For my project, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone by not only using my Imagine but also creating a layout.  This is only the second layout page that I have ever created and I am trying to get back to my original intention when I bought my first cricut.

I used Enjoy The Seasons Imagine cart for the majority of the layout and my E2 American Alphabet cart for the words.  I created layers/inked the edges to create some depth, stickles to add some bling, cuttlebug to add some texture and Glossy Accents to add shine to the pool, sunglasses and hot dogs!  I hope you like my layout.  Let me know what you think...








So on to my blog candy!  I am giving away.....a current stamp set of your choice from Stampin' Up ($25 or less).    You decide, I will order and ship to you...  Must be shipped to a US address.

Make sure you leave a comment to be entered for my blog candy.  You do not have to be a follower, but I would love it if you were! :)   If I get a bunch of new followers, I may even do two giveaways!!  What do you think?!  Anyway, have a great weekend & I hope you enjoy the hop!

Your next stop is Amber.

Happy Crafting....Nicole T.
