Firecraker & Paper Temptress Blog Hop

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.
Welcome to Firecraker Designs by Pamela & Paper Temptress blog hop. This is a circular hop where you start where ever you are and continue around till you are back where you started. There is a mystery blog hostess so be sure to comment on all the blogs. The blog candy is rubber stamps (Pamela's choice) or 2 digital stamps & Paper Temptress June Paper Pack.

The theme for the hop is Open Road. The idea is to create a card using music you listen to when traveling. I used Come Sail Away by Styx. The beach is my favorite place to travel. Sail Away was printed on Diamond White. The best part of this paper is that once you print your digital image, you can emboss it. The image was colored with Twinkling H2O's. Ribbon is from the new ribbon available at Paper Temptress.

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to Cindy's blog and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Katie's card

My daughter,Katie, wanted to use this cute saying from Create with TLC. She drew the dragon herself. She doesn't like it and thinks it is horrible. I told her that it is awesome but what do I know, I am just her mom. What do you think? She used Razzleberry and Grapescile Pop Tones.

#1 Father

This digi is from Deedee's Digis. The layout is from Crafting with Deedee's digis. All papers are from Paper Temptress. The new Corrugated brown and blue are wonderful papers that add great texture without the work. Ok, I have to tell you the layout is off a bit to make up for the paper not being cut and matted straight. I was too lazy to start again. I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think?

My daughter took part in Relay for Life this year. Her team title was the Dream Team and they all designed their own super hero costumes. The sketch is from Nuts About Sketches. Scrap & Stamp's challenge is to use different fonts. The capitals are Curlie Gurlie and the numbers are Carnival by Tim Holtz. The other font I don't know the name. The ribbon stamp is from Stampin Up. The butterflies are from Butterfly Happiness by There She Goes Stamps. There She Goes challenge this week is to distress. I distressed all the edges and inked with Brilliance Pearlescent Purple. Basis Light Blue is paired with Grape Popsicle Glossy. Amythest Metallic is used for the titles, ribbons and matting the photos. The ribbons were cut out of the mats before gluing the photos done. This is a way to extend the paper.
