Lily Bee Blog Hop

Hello, and Welcome to the Lily Bee Blog Hop!

Lily Bee Blog <={Start Here}
Patricia Roebuck<={This is Me and Where You are Now}

This is a special week for Lily Bee with lots of exciting happenings.  Earlier this week, the new blog went live...so be sure to add or change the new blog address in your reader or subscribe from the Lily Bee blog.  And if you haven't already, we'd love for you to follow Lily Bee through Facebook and Twitter.  
I am really excited as well to share that Lily Bee now has a Flickr Group!  We would love to see your Lily Bee creations.  Winners of our Sketch and Challenge posts will be selected from this group...so be sure to join and add your work for us to see.

You'll also see one more new feature Lily Bee has to offer for inspiration...you can now follow Lily Bee through Pinterest!  This is one time that change is good, we're so very excited!

For the blog hop today, I created this layout from a recent beach trip photo using the Victoria Park Collection.  I really wanted something fun, artsy, and colorful to highlight this photo and to celebrate the changes with Lily Bee.
I started out by masking and misting the background...then decided it took too much focus from the photo...so added a layer of gesso using an old credit card to soften it, more misting and some splashes as well.  And for added fun, I used the cap from the mist bottle and stamped with it in a few sections.
Love these cool colors from Lily Bee, they are soothing, bright, and fun.  I cut the starburst from the Silhouette and then added papers to the background using the 6x6 tiny tablet.  Glued the twine down with Zip Dry and stitched the rays from the starburst.
One technique I now cannot seem to stop doing is cutting out a "V" from the banner stickers...this time I used the inside as well and put those on foam adhesive.
I am amazed, excited, and so thankful to be able to work with a very talented team of ladies at Lily Bee.  Go to the Lily Bee Blog and each Design Team's blog (see the above list) to leave a comment to be eligible to win a $50 VISA gift Card!  Comments will be open until Monday, July 2nd, Midnight EST.  The winner will be announced on the 4th of July Lily Bee blog post!  

GOOD LUCK!!!
