My Little Shoebox Hop


Hi bloggy friends! Hope you have your hoppin' shoes on because the My Little Shoebox blog hop is in full swing and it is a good one!

The hop begins HERE at the My Little Shoebox blog. The complete list of all the participating designers is there just in case you get lost along the way. Be sure to leave as many comments as you can to be eligible for the prize. Here is the layout that I created for you today.

Minty Fresh


My Little Shoebox's Summer Breeze line is not just for summer. All those clothes hanging on the line inspired me to create this layout about my little guy all bundled up in his clean towel smelling fresh after taking his bath and brushing his teeth.



I used several of the die cuts to create the scalloped border above my photo block, and two more die cuts to create my tree tops. The tree trunks are the last of my Maya Road chipboard tree pieces. Don't they fit like they were made for the die cuts? I sprinkled in few of the cute little birdies and added a couple of clouds for my journaling and title. Done.

Now what blog hop would be complete without prizes, hun? Become a follower here at my blog and leave me a comment and I'll pick one of my scrappy friends to win five packs of My Little Shoebox's Mini Alphas. And . . . be sure to leave a comment back at the My Little Shoebox blog because some lucky hopper will win AN ENTIRE MLS COLLECTION! Woweee . . . now THAT's a prize!

Now hop on over to Melanie's blog HERE. Happy Hopping!
