Goodbye Summer Blog Hop with Paper House

Thanks for joining us for the Paper House Productions Goodbye Summer Blog Hop this weekend! We're so glad you're hopping along, and hope you're inspired by all the fun summer-themed projects our Design Team has to share!

If you've never done a blog hop before, we're happy you're starting with us! To begin, just visit the first designers' blog in the list below. Look at her project, leave her a little bit of love in the comments section of her post, and click on through to the next designer on the list. Each blog will have the list repeated, so you shouldn't get lost along way!

The awesome prize for this Hop is an Endless Summer Paper Pad. If you've been waiting for the perfect paper to scrap all of your summer memories, then wait no more, this pad is it. From it's amazing color pallet to the perfect images, you will love every page!  

Details on HOW to enter are at the bottom of this post!

My summer themed project is a layout featuring lots of pictures of some of my favorite scrapbooking friends on a sunflower photo-safari!

The background paper is one of 12 gorgeous designs in the Great Outdoors Paper Pad.  The image is of a sunlit field of flowers and it has delicate half tone borders on the upper and lower edge of the page!  I just added a collage of photos in the center of the page and started to embellish!

The white picket fence you see under several of the photos is from the Gardening Cardstock Sticker set.  The watering can is from the 3D Gardening Stickers.
The Farm Raised 3D stickers had the perfect title element because this photo safari took place on a local farm.  Can you believe it already had those sunflowers on it?  Perfect!

Of course, too much is never enough, so even though I had beautiful photos of sunflowers, I needed to add more!  Fortunately Paper House offers 3D Sunflower stickers!  The delicate rhinestone swirl you see is from Want2Scrap and is the perfect shade of brown!

To finish things off I added a couple more stickers from the Gardening 3D Sticker set:
