Being Blue Blog Hop

 Welcome to the SP and Company Color Hop!

This month's color is Light Blue, join us the 7th through the 10th as we share light blue projects using brand new SP and Company stamps that will be released on the 10th. Not only does the Design Team get to play with this color, but YOU do too! After you're done hopping around today, make sure you play along with this month's light blue challenge (click here for details) for a chance to win some awesome SP and Company prizes! And don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog each day to be eligible for the prizes!!

Now, for my project!

I adore this "Wish Big" sentiment from the new Bold Sentiments I set that will be available for purchase at the SP and Company store on July 10.  Have you seen the sneak peeks of this yet? If not,check out the Scrapmaster's Blog - she's been giving out hints and you are going to love what you see (and I know you are dying for the 10th to get here already, right?!)!!! To me, "Wish Big" just screamed for something carnival-y or circus-like! So, I had to break out my ticket die (again) and this little hot air balloon stamp!  The card just wasn't complete until I added a banner at the top.

I love working with light blue... I don't get to use it that often since my little one is a girl, so this was a refreshing change for me!

Make sure you check out the SP Blog and see what Samantha did with the new stamps. Also, Emily, Amie and Kate all have projects for you today so stop by their blogs and check out what they have been up to.
