Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop

 Hello Scrappy Friends.

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop!
You may have arrived here from the Scrapbooking Memories blog.

Some of the Scrapbooking Memories Masters and Creative Team Members are joining together for a fun little blog hop.  
We were each asked to design a project around a particular theme.
What we'd like you to do is guess that theme from the clues left on each blog.
When you think you have the answer please head over to the Scrapbooking Memories blog 
and add your answer in the comments section of the Blog Hop post.
NB: this last bit is most important so all the answers are in the one place.


So here's the project I created.
And let me tell you it was a whole lot of fun!

I wanted the page to reflect the carefree, lighthearted photo's.  I have such good times
camping each year with these girls and we were definitely 
'In Good Spirits' 
the day these pictures were taken. 

I used Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons to create this background. 
I melted them on to the cardstock using an iron.
Because of their waxy consistency when I blended Gelatos into the the cardstock the colour resisted the waxy circles.  
Cool hey?!

I kept the embellishments to a minimum, but honestly these Amy Tangerine rosettes and stickers
are enough to put anyone in a chirpy mood. ;)

So what do you think any clues as to what the theme may be or is it too early to tell?
Why don't you hop over to Heather McMahon's blog and see what clues she may have. ;)
Heather's post will be up at 12.30pm.

Just a last little note and not really part of the blog hop but I have an unclaimed prize 
from a giveaway in September. So if you leave a comment here (remember no guessing about the blog hop here, you can do that on the Scrapbooking Memories blog) I'll pop you in the draw to see if 
we can't give away this RAK.  I'll be back in a few days with the winner. :)
