TE Blast from the Past!


Hello everyone!! I am excited to participate in Taylored Expression's Blast from the Past blog hop! This hop was introduced last month, and like a silly-head, I completely forgot to sign up for it. So happy to participating this month though! What a neat concept to use those sets that haven't seen ink for a while, right??


Can you believe this adorable image is actually from a set released for Easter?! I think it is just adorable! The set is called Favorite Peeps, and it is versatile enough to use year-round. All us hoppers were provided these colors for inspiration.


And thankfully so, I tell ya!! I have had family visiting for the past couple of weeks and haven't stamped a thing! My mojo is/was completely zapped and I needed all the help I could get. :)
And so here is what I was able to put together...

I used Jen Tapler's Sketch For You to Try for the sketch...like I said, I needed all the help I could get! My sentiment came from another set from the past, Beary Special...which I just LOVE! Patterned paper is from the Thrift Shop and everything else came from my good 'ole stash. :)

Now, let's check out what the rest of the hoppers have come up with! I can't wait to check out everyone's creations...especially after seeing last month's!
