ESAD Summer Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD-SU Summer Mini Blog Hop. ESAD - Extremely Special Aussie Demonstrators is a yahoo group dedicated to Australian Stampin Up Demonstrators where we share heaps of ideas and tips with each other as well as offer support and encouragement.

Now a bit about my project. I have used the Kaleidoscope DS Papers and teamed a Close to Cocoa heading that has been wheeled with Retro Remix Wheel in Close to Cocoa Ink. I also added some Rub on dots from the Dots & Designs Rub-ons. Now I just love those Crocheted flowers. I punched out some Close to Cocoa cardstock and added a cute pink button from the Sherbet collection threaded with some Linen thread and popped those on top of the flowers with a glue dot. I just loved how this has turned out and I think those crocheted flowers have just made the page.

Now to go and see the rest of the projects made by my fellow ESAD friends just follow this link to Narelle Hodges blog and then she will have a link to the next blog and hopefully you will end up back here where you started. If you would love to win some fabulous blog candy just leave a comment on all of the 30 blogs that are participating in this blog hop. Have fun hopping along.....
