Paper Popsicles Blog Hop!!


Paper Popsicles is having it's first ever blog hop, so you'll be asked to hop from blog to blog featuring yummy eye candy with a summer theme...and of course what's eye candy without a little blog candy...so just leave a comment before you hop along to the next blog and you just might pick up a prize!!! Each blog will feature a secret word...these words needs to be collected and then put together to form a phrase. This phrase will then need to be emailed to paperpopsicles@gmail.com by Sunday night, July 12 at midnight Central time to be eligible for our grand prize. So......lets get started!!! If you are joining me from Jackie's blog great...you are hopping right along...if you just stumbled upon my blog...you won't want to miss a thing, so hop on over to the Paper Popsicles blog to get you started.


To make this fun little picnic gift basket you first need to head over to the Paper Popsicles store and purchase some of the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Paper and elements sheet, as well as the Fruit Digital Design by Cheeky Radish. The basket I bought at Michael's and then from my stash I used DoodleBug mini rub-ons, Antique Linen Distress ink, pop dots, Diamond Glaze, Fiskars Apron Lace punch, Copic Markers and Mod Podge.


(PLEASE don't mind the undried Diamond Glaze on 2 of the cherries-I had to go and couldn't wait any longer for the glaze to dry! OOPS!!)


Did you know that the Paper Popsicles blog features a new card challenge every Wednesday?


Did you know that every month we have weekly theme challenges hosted on our message board?


Did you know that we have a monthly sketch challenge?

Have you seen the kits in the store?

Have you been over to see the design team and guest designer's galleries to see their amazing work done with the fabulous products offered in the Paper Popsicles store?


now...for my secret word...it is AND
