lawnscaping's first blog hop!





it's finally here!




Welcome to the first ever Lawnscaping Blog Hop! So glad you’re here! You should have come to me by way of Jen Rzasa's blog! Aren't her cards stunning? they're always clean and crisp! super inspiring! This month's theme is magical. Holiday projects!! The hop runs from Friday, September 9th - Sunday, September 11th! Make sure to comment on all of the blogs because there are LOTS of prizes to be won! All the details can be found on the Lawnscaping home page (http://lawnscaping.blogspot.com).


i am so excited to be part of this blog hop! i've been looking forward to it since it was announced, and it's finally here! yahoo! my project is a scrapbook layout. it's of my son's first christmas (in 2008...*whistle*), when we went looking for the perfect christmas tree! and if you can believe it, i used 4 different lawn fawn stamp sets (critters in the forest, harold's abc's, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum and quinn's abc's)!





i 'paper'-pieced the trees with felt and kraft cardstock. i wanted the added texture to the trees, since they're the main focus of the layout. the bear was also paper pieced, and i just had to add it to the layout, since my little mann was dressed in a bear suit when we were on our hunt for the perfect tree!





i only have a wee bit of journaling, but i also layed that over both colors of the green felt for cohesion and dimension. i just realized that none of my elements are popped up, and i nearly always have something popped up on my projects! oh well, the layering of the trees works for me! :)



the title of the layout was created with some fun patterened paper and fussy cutting out the stamps from quinn's abc's. this layout was super fun to make, i had a great time, and i hope it shows!





Next head on to Michelle ( MicheyMoo's)'s blog, you won't be disapointed! her attention to detail in impeccable!. If you've gotten off track, don't worry! Head on back to Lawnscaping to see the complete list of designers.



enjoy the hop!
