Just A Scrappin' Summer Fun Blog Hop

Happy Summer!!!!!!!!

During the hop the DT members are celebrating the things we love about summer. 
All the team has made projects to show what we like about summer.

The hop begins at Just A Scrappin".  You should of arrived here from Nicole D at Think/Create/$ave, If you just happen by please start at the beginning of the hop at Just A Scrappin".

We have some fun blog candy for you from Just a Scrappin'.  Plus many of the DT have their own candy to give away also.
All you have to do to be eligible for the candy you need to leave a comment on each DT members blog including Just a Scrappin.  Also please leave you contact information in case you are the lucky winner.

Here is the layout I made for the hop.

It is about my love of softball.  I played for 28 years and watch my girls for 16 years and coached for all those 16 years.  I love the game.  It is so fun.  Now that I am quite a bit older and my knees will not allow me to play or coach;  I love to craft about it.

I use some items I had on hand.  I added the wooden balls on each corner.  Added sticker in the middle of each one.  The mats for the photos are 4x6 with the corners rounded.  The back round printed paper was cut off 1/2 inch all the way around.  Added some cute softball buttons.
Used a bit of doodling on the photo mats.  Distressed the edges with Stampin' Up Close to Coco ink.

I am the last stop on the hop and the DT Coordinator.  This the first hop for many of us and we all hope that you liked our projects and the you will come back to join our DT challenges each week and try out to win a chance to win some great candy given away at each month.
