National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Close to My Heart National Scrapbook Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Judy Faye Garner at Judy Faye's Place, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured constant campaign features the exclusive Taste of Summer paper pack.  This paper is only available until May 31st and is only $8.95 with any Close to My Heart purchase.

For today's card, I scrap-lifted an idea from Page 16 of the CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2.  I simply fell in love with the simplicity and power of this layout when I saw it in the most recent mini idea book.

Supplies used:
*Taste of Summer paper packet
*Hopscotch Alphabet stamp set
*Black cardstock
*White Daisy cardstock
*Black & Grey Epoxy Bubbles
*White Shimmer Trim
*Thistle Extra Thick Bakers Twine
*Mini Stapler

Thank you for visiting me at JD Designs and for hopping with us on the Close to My Heart National Scrapbook Month Blog Hop!   Next up on the hop is Lauren MooreI hope you'll hop on over to her blog for more Taste of Summer inspiration.

Until next time, happy crafting!
