Scrapping Our Stash April Blog Hop with Practical Scrappers!

Hello! Hello!  I am having a little fun today!  I was invited to play along with Practical Scrappers for this month's Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop.  

We have 20 talented ladies participating today and if you get lost, you can find the list back at Practical Scrappers. You should be arriving here from Nicole Laha's blog. is my project - a layout featuring Kaisercraft's Elegance.  I love this picture of my brother and his wife - they are so cute together!  It is only a  4"x 6" photo so I gave it a triple mat to give it more "weight".

I added bling from Want2Scrap.  You can see I started the Maxxi Girl Swirl in the top left...

...and finished it in the bottom right.

I also created the center of the flower from Want2Scrap bling.

I love Spellbinders dies and used Windows Three and Sentiments Shapeablities in this embellishment cluster.

The "potty people" are from Studio Calico and the chipboard embellishment, which was painted with DecoArt metallic paint, is from Want2Scrap.

I am doing a giveaway here today!  
I will put together a nice selection of Want2Scrap bling for one lucky person!  In order to qualify you can do any/or all of the following:

  1. Become a follower here on my blog
