Crafty sentiments: New releases day 3: Blog Hop

Good morning all! Have you been checking out the new releases from Crafty Sentiments - they're absolutely stunning and if you haven't seen the new ones from days one and two check them out on the inspirational blog here. If you leave comments there for days one and two and also on the blog hop today you'll be in with a chance of winning some goodies. So exciting. So you should have reached me - if you're on the hop from Jan. If not and you fancy hopping along with us start at todays inspirational post here where the full hop list will be posted.

I used the new image Primrose the Mermaid and had lots of fun making a 3d box frame.



The papers I used inside and outside the box are from crafty individuals and last time I looked they were on special offer - they're called at the seaside and they're lush. The image has been stamped and coloured with promarkers then fussy cut and mounted using 3d glue. There are crafty emblies in there and shells from the beach and the punch is a border punch from Martha stewart that makes fab seaweed. I had so much fun making this piece and have sent it to suzette as a sample for the shows. Hope you'll use her Suzette!!!!The whole thing has been sprayed with Crafters companion gold spray and sparkle.

I'd like to enter my box frame into the following challenges:

Pan pastelpanpasteluk - fairyland - I know she's not a fairy - but is a mermaid not in the same class really? Delete me if you need to xx
Stamping sensationssirstampalotchallenge - embossing/texture
IDICrobynsfetishchallengeblog: Spring colours
PIOpileitonchallenge: For a mother - I know my mum would have loved this!
SSSSsimonsaysstampandshow: Inspired by: fairytales that my children adore.
FF Fortnightforeverfriendschallengeblog: Pastel colours
Deep Ocean CBdeepoceanchallengeblog: Lets Sparkle
Divasdivasbydesignchallenge: Anything goes
Penny'spennyschallenges: Diecuts and punches.

If you're on the hop you should now be heading for Suzie where I'm sure she's got something fabulous to share with you!

Thanks so much for dropping by and I do hope you enjoy the hop and leave a comment - you never know you could get lucky! And while you're over at the Inspirational Blog remember to become a follower and add the inspirational badge to you blog to be in with a chance of some mystery candy.

Big Hugs
