My Pinkalicious Blog Hop: All About Summer

Welcome to our June Pinkalicious Blog Hop.  If you came here from Shauna's blog then you are right on track.  If you just stumbled across this post, please go to Robyn's blog to start at the beginning & hop along with us.
Our challenge this month was to do any type of project with the theme:  All About Summer.  We had to make something that depicted what summer means to us.  And Of course use My Pink Stamper's Stamps.  Well both of my children's birthdays are in the summer so that pretty much is what my summers are all about.  But, since we already had a birthday challenge I decided to do an Independence Day Themed project.  I just love the 4th of July.  It is the heart of summer for me.
For this project, I made a cereal box canvas. Now, this was not my original idea.  I came across a video on YouTube and thought it was rather interesting.  It gives me another way to use all of those cereal (& other) boxes that I am saving that is driving my husband crazy - LOL.  Click HERE to see the video part 1.  My project is a little different than his, but I loved the canvas idea.
Details:
I used my Gypsy and my Cricut to create & design this project.
Cartridges Used: Independence Day, Stand and Salute, & Birthday Bash
Stamp Set Used:  My Pink Stamper's Freedom Rocks.  Click HERE to see where you can get Robyn's Stamps.  They are all great quality & stamp wonderfully using any type of ink.  You can also click HERE to go to her stamp gallery to see examples of how the stamps can be used.  There is lots of great inspiration there.
Don't forget to return to Robyn's blog to join in on our challenge after you've finished the hop.

Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed. Lori

What a fabulous design idea. I too, knew if I kept those cereal boxes long enough I could find a use for them (besides chipboard for mini albums). Thanks for the great inspiration.
