October Everything Scrapp'n Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything Scrapp'n Design Team Blog Hop. If you would like to start from the beginning to see all the great inspiration, please visit the store blog. There will be a prize offered on one of the blogs but we're not telling which one (we're sneaky that way) so leave comments on each of the blogs to make sure you get in on the giveaway. Here is a peek at the prize!
I started working with Cosmo Cricket's Earth Love at the end of September, but I had so much paper left over I wanted to use it up! I decided to scrap another photo from the time my friend Abe & I took photos in Golden Gate Park. Abe modeled for me and I taught him more about photography. He was a fast learner and knew plenty about compositions already.
Products used: White cardstock, Love Elsie Forrest woodgrain pp, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Reuse pp, Earth Love Relive pp, Earth Love Remember pp, Earth Love Elements, Sassafrass Lass Happy Place Pal Around chipboard, American Crafts Delight Thickers-white, Hambly Photography rub ons-white, Hambly DIY rub ons-black, Making Memories magnetic date stamp, Autumn Leaves stamp postage, Staz On Ink-jet black & timber, & pop dots.

I really like the fabric texture of the American Crafts Delight thickers. Even better, plenty of alphas come in each package. I couldn't help getting them in several colors.
I've been wanting to make birthday cards and the Elements from this line are just perfect for making cards! I bought two of these sheets since its double sided. Here is a new favorite I made for an upcoming birthday. I cut a 6x12 piece of paper, then folded it into 3rds. I cut out a circle and added pop dots to the mushroom circle and added some glimmer mist.I think that rub ons always make a nice little touch, plus they are fun to use. I love explaining to people how they are temporary tattoos for paper. Thanks for visiting my blog & the next stop is Denise.

Love all the layers in the layout! I also think your tutorial on the card is great! I am petrified of cards and the way you explained it I would have much more room to create and I might do better.
