Things We Love Blog Hop

Ok I am back...back to reality...back to the blog...back to some stamping! I had a fantastic weekend scrappin' with my friends. We stayed up way too late both Friday and Saturday nights, talked a whole bunch, drank a little, and actually got some scrapbooking done! It was perfect (thanks for a great weekend girls!!).

But the main reason for my post today is Paper Makeup Stamps is turning 2!! That is right, we are celebrating PMS 2nd anniversary and couldn't be happier about it. And since we love PMS (Paper Makeup Stamps that is...hehe), we decided to have a "Things We Love" Blog Hop in honor of the anniversary!

But this hop is better than usual...the design team was asked to invite one friend to join us on the Hop. So you get to see lots of fantastic creations with Paper Makeup Stamps. To make sure you don't miss anything, make sure you start at the PMS Blog (there is a Master List there just in case you have issues hopping along).

So for my contribution to the "Things We Love" theme...I love flowers...the real ones...that make you put your nose to them so you can inhale that sweet aroma. And it appears that Caliope feels the same way! He (well I am guessing he is a "he") is one of the adorable monsters at Paper Makeup Stamps and he just can't himself from smelling that flower!

I tend to need cards 3 at a time (weird I know), so I did a Triple Play like I have done in the past and made three cards with basically the same supplies and three different layouts. Caliope was stamped and watercolored (with an aquabrush and ink pads) to match the plaid pattern paper from the High School Mat Stack by DCWV.

So now you need to hop on over to my invited guest of honor...the amazing Nicole Anderson of Gotta Have Paper. She is a blogger friend that I have had for a year or so and is just the sweetest thing...and let me tell you this girl can color! So don't take my word for it, hop on along over to Nicole's Blog to continue the celebration!

Then don't forget to join us for a Birthday Party over on the PMS Forum tonight at 9 pm EST. We would love to see you there!! Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

Holy cow, so many cards! I get excited when I get just ONE done! Love all of them! Maybe I should follow your idea and do 3 similar ones at a time since I would already have all the pieces together...
