May 1st Blog Hop

It's time for the 1st of the Month Blog Hop.  You have most likely been hopping along and enjoying everyone's beautiful creations.  If you have hopped over to the Playground from Cathy's Blog These Eager Hands you are on the right path.  Isn't Cathy's work gorgeous?  She is one talented gal whose artwork is an inspiration to all of us. 

This time we are showcasing the May Stamp of the Month "Just Sayin" This stampset is adorable and can be used on scrapbook layouts as well as cards. 

 You can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00 with a $50.00 order throughout the month of May.
There is also another "Fantabulous Promotion" going on in May.  You will love this paper pack called "Taste of Summer".  The price is more than Fantabulous.  For $8.95 you get 12 - 12 x 12 pieces of adorable summertime paper.

I have had a lot of fun creating this summertime layout using this cute stamp set and this bright and beautiful paper pack.  It was perfect for two adorable Grandkids, Beau and Chloe. 

No words needed with the smiles and expressions on everyone's faces.  Love this little guy so much! Our Beau is so Brave! 
Miss Chloe is a total DIVA.....she is an amazing little girl who is so full of life and energy.  She brings lots of joy to our this cutie pie so much.
