Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop!

Woo Hoo! Welcome to our very first Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop!!! Hold onto your hats because you are in for a treat! If you haven't already, be sure to start the hop at the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog. If there are any broken links along the way, just return to the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog to find your way to the next stop.


The theme of our hop is SPRING, so I naturally grabbed the newly released Spring Baskets stamp set. It was a natural to pair up with this fabulous new paper I just bought by Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. I found Nikki Sivils in the New Exhibitor area at CHA and fell in LOVE! Eclectic Paperie just started carrying some of the 6 x 6 paper pads (and a few stamp sets), and I understand A Cherry On Top will soon carry the entire line.

I followed the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #57. I adore Karen's sketches, and this one is no exception. I love combining strips of coordinating paper! I almost left off the ribbon and bow because the patterns are so pretty, but finally settled on a narrow ribbon that doesn't detract from the paper.

Now, on you go to Belinda's blog to see what she's cooked up for you. Thanks for joining us! Happy Hopping!!!
