Great Impressions Blog Hop!

Welcome welcome to the very first Great Impressions blog hop! I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful company of stamps and have a great DT!!! Our hop this weekend is a combined hop. We are hopping along with the girls from Creative Inspirations paints! If you have not tried their paints...now is the time to do so....they are soooo pretty and shimmery and lovely! You will see in all of our posts not only Great Impressions stamps but also Creative Inspirations paints on our projects!

You have from Friday March 9th 8:00am EST until Sunday March 11th 8:00pm EST to complete the hop. And then you will be entered into the drawing for the prize package which you don't want to miss out on!!!

Here is what I came up with for my project to share:

Wow...I really am loving the CI paints but I really need a lot of work on how to use them. I used them to stamp my image and then also painted my flowers! But I can see now why people that use mixed mediums love them so much because they are beautiful, dry quickly, and are very smooth!



Okay....so I guess you would like your letter huh?! Well...I actually got lucky and get to give you (2) letters so I have for you are A and T
So if you came here from
Angi's blog: Making Mayhem
then you are right on track and you will now head over to
but....if you just started here with me you need to go back to the beginning which is here
and start there remebering to grab the letters at each stop, leaving each girl some love and then leaving some love along with your word/words on the last blog of the hop!
Enjoy!!
