SG Blog Hop - Hipster...



Welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for September. If this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.

I chose to use a sketch from one of the newest bundles...you get five 2-page layouts for under $3...I love the straight lines of this layout.  Check out all their downloads {{{here}}}.

-------------------------------------------
Here's the left layout...
------------------------------------------------------------
I used some retired Irisistibilities inked in Lagoon Ink for a frame for my Base & Bling Free Thinker sticker.  I also added my Mini Calendar Stamp...at only $2.95, this stamp set is gettin' in work!  By adding some Gold Sequins and a little tiny red enamel heart to mark the date the photos were taken, some much needed bling was added!
------------------------------------------------------------------
I used the Chalk It Up WOTG stamp set to add the "Life is Good" sentiment...and the Gold Shimmer Trim brings out the metallic glasses!
-----------------------------------------------------------
Another Irisistible frame inked in Lagoon Ink...another Base & Bling Free Thinker sticker (the red polka-dot pennant) and some more Gold Sequins to carry the theme over to the right page.
---------------------------------------------------------
The chose to use some retired Later Sk8r B&T (you can still get the PML cards here) and some of the Paper Fundamentals Cardstock (Basic Colors) to add some pattern without taking away from the photos.

You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out. Next on the hop is (enter the next blog in the list here, last person link back to SG), leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store.

The winner will be drawn on Monday, September 8th which leaves you one week to leave a comment. 

Your next stop is Cicily's Blog...make sure you hop to everyone's blog and comment for your chance to win!!!

Later Sk8r also happens to be my FAVORITE color combo...Pear and Lagoon...and since this layout adds Black, White Daisy & a little bit of red, it's the PERFECT color combo!  H2H's Challenge this week is to scrapbook with your favorite color combo...what's yours!
