American Crafts :: Blog Hop!

Blog HopWelcome to the American Crafts Blog Hop! I'm so excited you've made it here today! I'm just your first stop on the hop, so make sure you take the time to hop your way through each of the 20 designers' blogs! If you haven't already, make sure you start up at the AC blog so you can see all of the instructions and the full list of designers, then hop away!

BlogHop_LO_YouShine_AHFor our hop assignment we were challenged to create a project using all 5 of the latest collections in a cohesive way. I love challenges like this because I love mixing colors and patterns together and I think there is definitely depth enough in all of these collections to make them work together beautifully.DetailGrid_AC_BlogHop

Here, I've used some iconic Amy Tangerine pieces, like the sunshine and hearts mixed heavily with Daydreams and Garden Cafe, then with sprinkles of Hollyday and Nightfall. I really love how it turned out! My little girl really does shine and I know she's going to do great things in her life. I really wanted to showcase those traits in her, here in my page, so I used a photo of her in the late afternoon sun, glowing beautifully.

Here's a picture of my giveaway! It's an estimated retail value of $14.50! Only one entry per person please. You have until Wednesday, September 21nd at midnight EST to enter. I will randomly draw one winner and post their name here on Thursday, September 22rd.Just in time for Halloween and Christmas holiday scrapping to begin! :D Easy peasy, right?!
