but one thing is for certain - you have to hop along and comment on the DT blogs for your chance to win! :)

this hop, we're working with this very lovely, very inspirational mood board below:

since we were celebrating national scrapbook day, i decided to make a layout!
here it is:

awww, yeah! it's my little menn, all happy and silly on their bikes! lol! :)

i used a stencil and some distress ink to add the browns to the background. so FUN! 

then i layered some paper from the uber trendy my minds eye 'mildred' collection under my photos! LOVE this paper - it has golds, aquas and pinks! swoon! 

i used lots of FUN little triangles to draw the eye to my title - and those super cool stickers are from the heidi swapp favorite things puffy shape stickers pack! these are NEON people - and clearly, they work well with non-neon projects too! so it's really win-win! i have to get a second sheet of these!

finally, i added some FREAKING AMAZING stickers to my layout that are from the simple stories DIY collection. THEY ROCK! they're super cool and add so much FUNK to my layout! i love it!

so that's my layout!
