Progressive Blog Hop

I hope your having fun going through our progressive blog hop this weekend. If I am the first blog you have come to go to Two Scrapbook Friends blog and start there to get the full experience. 

If you have gone through all the rest of the blogs I should be your last stop. 

The blog hop started on Joanne's blog with this awesome sketch that she created.

Since I am at the end of the blog hop I get to upload a completely finished layout including every one else's elements that they added. 

Here is my layout based off of Joanne's Sketch, Shelby's stripped paper, Jayne's something wet, Christa's stitching, Carolyn's distressing, Ann's quote, and for my element to add 3 buttons.

My striped paper is across my photo, something wet is the texture paste that I have on my background, my stitching is on the chevron pattern paper, my distressing is the mist on my background as well as inking my paper, my quote is incorporated in my title, and my three buttons are on my banner pieces under my photo.

If you complete the entire Hop, and you leave a comment on each Friend/Designer’s blog and the Two Scrapbook Friend's blog by 11:59 pm on May 6th,  you will be entered in a random drawing for a great prize! In addition, if you accept the challenge and create a design of your own and upload it to the Two Scrapbook Friends Gallery by 11:59 pm on May 31st, you will be eligible to win ANOTHER fabulous prize!

Finally, all the FINISHED TSF/Designer creations will be revealed on the Two Scrapbook Friend's blog on Monday, May 7th.

Here is a list of all the Blogs in order:
