"Enjoy the Moments!" Blog Hop

Hey Hoppers!  I've got a GIVEAWAY for today's hop, so make sure you read all the way through the end of this post....

So did you hear all about CROPPED - the Biggest Papercrafting Event of 2012?!?!  

All the juicy details about the event are HERE.  I'm going to be there LIVE in Wisconsin cropping with Megan Elizabeth and I hope to see YOU there too!

But before we get to CROPPED in September, we've got the big Craft & Hobby Association Summer Show next week in Chicago.  Megan went with a "Rock Star" theme for this CHA Show and I am SO excited to be a part of it.  I've been helping Megan by creating projects that we can display in her booth next to her fabulous line of paper and embellishments.  

The "My Daddy Rocks" layout I'm sharing with you today is one of the projects I created exclusively for the CHA show.  It was made entirely with Megan Elizabeth products... (except for the ribbon which was from my stash)

This pic is of my husband and one of our twin girls when she was about 18 months old.

Chevron's are so popular right now...they are popping up in everything from fabric to papercraft supplies.  So I decided to create my own chevron pattern using Sparkle Lightz from Megan Elizabeth.  I choose this sheet of Paper Layerz for the background because the light grid pattern made it super easy to make sure the chevron pattern stayed straight and nicely aligned.

The die cuts are from the Rock Princess Cartridge from Cricut.  Everything was cut from Paper Layerz, which is printed on Cut Mates cardstock.  Cut Mates is specifically designed for die cutting machines so it cuts beautifully each and every time.  I really wanted to girly skull to pop so I adhered it using U-Cut It Foam from Glue Arts and Megan Elizabeth.  I love that I can cut it to the exact size I need - (which was pretty small when it came to popping up that bow!)
My title was created using Megan Elizabeth mini Alpha Stickerz and Chip Board Alphabet Stickerz.  And I couldn't help but add some Uptown Girl Sparkle Lightz too!

  2. Even with the grid pattern on the paper I am not sure I could line up all of those Sparkle Lightz like you did! That looks amazing! I will try adding them to a die cut . . . that one I think I can handle.

    I cannot wait to meet you in person at the Cropped event!
