May Blog Hop with Practical Scrappers


Good morning!!  Ready for a fun Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop?  I know that I sure am!



Practical Scrappers closed up shop on regular posts effective Mid May - but we will continue to run monthly hops because it is well loved by both our designers and fans!

For this hop, there is only rule:  to create from your stash - it can be anything...cards, layouts, pocket pages, etc. All of the designers have truly unique creations.  You should be arriving here from Laura's blog - if not, then head back to the Practical Scrappers site and start from there.

For my part of the blog hop, I created a layout using a sketch from Page Maps Calendar 2014, Farm House Paper, a bit of twine, and some My Mind's Eye papers.  Digging into my stash was a great idea - I've been hoarding several kits - thankfully, I have realized that its time to reorganize my scrappy space and create on a more regular basis.

Just before school was out for the summer and after my honey had been working 80+ hours a week - we headed up north to Prescott, AZ.  I really love going up there - 85 degrees versus our 105 degrees.


Every time we go on this hike, I take a photo of that sad, dead tree.  It was damaged in a lightning strike years ago and is still standing.

Want to win a bit of scrappy stash of your own?  
Become a follower and leave a comment.  
One lucky winner will be chosen next week Friday.  
I can only ship to scrappy pals who live in the United States.

Next stop on the hop is Wendy C 

Have a great day and enjoy the hop!
