It's Here....June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "Hop" If you have arrived from Melissa's Blog, you are on the right track....If you just happened by, I invite you to begin at the beginning at Jena's Blog and see all 42 creations with this month's SOTM "Tender Tags."

My 12 X 12 layout features this month's stamp set "Tender Tags" fashioned into a beautiful flower to highlight one of my favorite pictures of my little girl. It was a joy to do this page as my daughter is 12 years old now and sometimes you need to go back to the beginning to appreciate the gift that is the present. (if any of you have a 12 year old, you know what I mean!)

The base of my page is New England Ivy CS with a sheet of Colonial White CS cut down to be framed by a Tulip "Heartfelt Whimsy" felt frame. I also used the button felt accent in the center of the flower and the stem accent. I printed my picture on Colonial White Textured CS (love that look) and matted it with Pansy Purple CS. The flower petals are stamped in Pansy Purple and Petal Exclusive Ink and the Pansy petals are curled a bit around a pencil and elevated with foam tape. I cut the title with my Silhouette using the "Curlz" font. I hope you enjoy!

Now, on with the Hop.... Click over to Helen's Blog and see what she has created for you. Should you get "lost on the hop" or find links that aren't working, here is a list of all the contributors this month. Have fun and see you next month!

Great idea to stamp the flower petals in alternating colors. Great minds think alike...I also thought "flower" when I saw the stamp set.
