Summer Fun Blog Hop!!!

Summer Fun Blog Hop
Come join the fun… we are running the Hop from July 1st thru July 7th midnight... so here is what we are going to do. We will start and finish here at the Let’s Scrap Sketches Blog…. At each stop you will see what they have done with the sketch and comment on it and follow their blog (these are a must!!) Each blog stop will have their own prize… so many opportunities for prizes!! The last stop is back at the Let’s Scrap Sketches Blog and I am going to have a linky button (will add after 8am on Friday) and I want you to take a picture of your scrapbooking area as is right now!! AND add our Let’s Scrap Sketches badge to your blog for others to find us!!! Make sure you leave your blog addy in the comment section of the blog so we can visit you too!!

So let's start with Mindi's Inspiration:

This is one of the last layouts of my FINALLY finished, only black and white wedding album. I cut the hearts and then using inspiration from pinterest, I embossed them with a swirl patter and ran silver ink over the raised edges. I then added eyelets and ribbon and used the, as my 'tags' from the sketch. I really enjoyed working with this great sketch and I'm sure you will too!
Peace, love and scrappiness to all!

and this is the prize for this stop on the blog hop from Mindi!!
