Takeo, Tag your it!

Well hello there!!

If you've stopped here from Amy's blog you are definitely on the right track.  If you just stopped by to see what this girl has been up to today then you are in for a treat!!  You have just stumbled upon the first day of the Sister Stamps 1st Anniversary blog hop & Release #8 party!  Want to get in on the fun?  Then you should definitely start at the beginning where all things kawaii (cute) start.  That would be at the Sister Stamps blog.  Why?  All of the past guest designers & a few lovely special guests will be sharing our inspirations using the release #8 images.  I also heard from a reliable source one of our blog hop sistahs, Debi, will be giving away stamps during the four day blog hop!

Now, in case you get lost, start at the Sister Stamps blog:  http://sisterstamps.blogspot.com/

I was so excited and happy to be asked by Jenny to help with this celebration.  Can you believe it's already been a year?  Seems like yesterday we were oohing and ahhhing over these adorable images introduced by Jenny and Denise.  Congrats to Sisters Stamps for this wonderful accomplishment.  As you know Sister Stamps are one of my favorite images to play with.  So it was definitely easy to say yes to Jenny. (hehe)  For my day one share, I took a page out of Amy's book and created a simple tag using some fun dp (Simple Stories Happy Day) and the adorable little boy with the balloons, Takeo.  I have always loved how Amy uses paper to her advantage to create beautiful scenes.  Well mine's by no means beautiful, but I do think it's cute.  (hehe)

I really enjoyed making this tag.  I think the paper took out all the guess work for me, which is such a treat sometimes, yea?  I edged the whole tag with cocoa pigment ink by Color box, embossed it with clear embossing powder and then heat set it to give it that old distress, yet glossy look.


Mahalo for stopping by and remember make sure you leave some love on everyone's blog.  We're all excited to hear what you all think. :)  Come back tomorrow for day three of this four day party all starting at the Sister Stamps blog culminating to the big release day on Sunday, July 1st.  For a full list of shops and online stores please head on over to the Sister Stamps blog and check out the list of vendors on their sidebar.
Now it's time to hop on over to Nadine's blog.  She's always got something up her sleeve and I'm positive you will love it!! 

Happy hopping!! 

Hugs,
Leanne
