Hopscotch HWBH March blog hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!
If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.
This months challenge is the Hopscotch  paper pack, brought to you by the Seasonal Expressions, hand picked from Nancy Klein.
If you came from Kerry Hammel -…/hopscotch-hwbh-mar…  then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

I just returned home a couple weeks ago from a fantastic trip to Hawaii with some great friends so I decided this paper would be a great way to start my memories of the trip. I just have to develop the pictures.

I used the Make it From Your Heart pattern book, volume 2(9042), pattern 16 to plan my layout.
I used Indian Corn Blue(Z2130), Sunset(Z2191), and Flaxen(Z2642) Exclusive inks from Close to My heart to edge everything with the sponge daubers(Z726). I used the Hopscotch Complements(X7194C) and Hopscotch Assortment(Z3016) to embellish my layout.I used antique gold Durables studs, letters cut out from the Alphabet on my Cricut and the Artbooking cartridge(Z1906) was used for the fun& sun,
as well as some assorted brads that I had on hand for a very long time and sticky letters for the date from miscellaneous items I had as well. Can't wait to add pictures.
