Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for March. Thank you for visiting my blog.  You should have found your way here from Mandi's blog. If this is your first stop, you might want to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then make your way through each stop.

For my layout I used a sketch from the June 2013 downloads - Boys/Father's Day bundle.

In keeping with my vow to use up my stash, I used some older Dear Lizzy - Lucky Charm papers on this layout. And to make it even better, all of the strips but two are the cut away strips from the paper. Which means I still have a lot of this paper that I love left for other layouts and projects.

I've been seeing a lot of cork embellishments lately, and while going through  my stash I found a piece of cork paper that I have had for a good 10 years and never used. I pulled it out along with a couple of heart punches and made my own cork embellishments. I just love using up some of that older stash!

You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.

Next on the hop is Cassie. Be sure to check out her blog and see what she has done with a Scrapbook Generation sketch. Leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on Monday, March 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.
