American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop


Happy National Scrapbook Day!  American Crafts is celebrating with a blog hop, and along the hop you will find a challenges on each blog.  We hope you are inspired to participate in. 

My challenge:  Stitch or Add Stitching to Your title

Me&MomLO
I used the Amy Tangerine stitching templates to create my title.  I wanted the title to stand out so I used white cardstock.

I used watered down gelatos to make my background to add some color and texture.  Added some of the new Plus One washi tape and Daydreamer enamel dots.  I love the pop of color they add.
Me&MomDetail2
A little stamping there in the bottom left corner with the Plus One stamp set and the arrow at the bottom of the photo is from the Daydreamer stamp set.  I have so many photos from our visit Strawberry Patch, and even though my daughter is out of focus in the photo, it captures such a fun moment, I wanted this photo to have it's own page.

All the supplies are from the Plus One collection except the stickers, enamel dots, and arrow stamp from the Daydreamer collection.
