HB2U - Lollipop Crafts 2nd Anniversary Hop

*Scroll down for my SCRS post.*


(Let's try this again!)
Aloha and welcome to the Lollipop Crafts 2nd Annual blog hop!  We're jumping in from our long hiatus with this celebratory blog hop.  You should have arrived from Sony’s blog, but if you didn’t you’re in for a treat!  You should head on over to the Lollipop Crafts blog to start at the beginning because that's where the celebration starts!  You won’t want to miss out on any of the DT’s pages. Why?  Well there are hidden prizes everywhere!  Not only are there hidden prizes on our pages, but there are prizes hiding on the LC blog too.  The hop starts today, 8/1 at the Lollipop Crafts blog and will run until 8/4. That gives you plenty of time to get to everyone’s pages and comment.  Now it wouldn't be fun with just a blog hop right?  Of course not!  That's why we're also adding a Celebration Challenge to the mix.  All you have to do is create a project, card or 3-D, anything you like with a "Celebration" theme and upload it to our LC page.   It's a short challenge, running through 8/4.  The details are all on the LC blog post.  Including the long list of our wonderful sponsors.

We are also super excited to welcome our guest designer for August.  Please say a big Aloha to Barbara of Forgotten Scraps and creator of Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Did you all know that Barbara was on the very first LC design team?  She was and we are all excited to have her come back to help us celebrate.  Welcome Barbara, so happy to have you joining us this month! J

Now let's get to my share... I created this card using two little girls that are close to my heart.  Meet Yumi & Fumi from ______________(can you guess?).  (It shouldn't be too hard... LOL)
They wanted to help celebrate with a HB2U banner...  

I cased my fellow, YFH DT, Eva's card that she posted here.  I colored Yumi (on the right) & Fumi (on the left) with Copics and the HB2U is also written with a Copic marker.  Yes you can use your Copics for things other than coloring.  I used the neglected chiseled side of the marker to write out the HB2U.  The hearts were punched out with two different punches and I layered the top ones up with pop dots.  Also used two different Fiskars border punches for the top and bottom.   The designer paper is from DCWV THE RUSTIC stack.  LOVE THIS PAPER PAD.  This card is a bit different than what I'm used to, but I like it and may use this one more often. 

Before I send you off to the next blog, I want to thank those of you who participated in the June and July month long challenges.  You are all the reason why we are still here.  Thank you!
Don’t forget to leave a comment before you head on over to my team captain, Alanna’s blog. 

Happy 2nd Anniversary Lollipop Crafts!  Cheers to many, many more!! 

Mahalo for stopping by! J
Hugs, Leanne J

Super cute idea! Love them holding up the banner! I am laughing because I don't think I have ever used a single chiseled tip on any of my copics! (that's crazy talk!)
