Inking Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to our Inking Pink Awareness Hop! Our paper crafting community spans the globe and brings all of us together under a common roof. We are grandmothers, granddaughters, mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, best friends, wives, cyber-friends and design team teammates. Many of us have family or friends touched by breast cancer and all of us want to encourage all of you to check yourself!


This hop will take you around the world, so please sit back with your morning coffee or evening tea and celebrate our stories and projects with us. Some of your fellow crafters along the hop are even offering blog candy! Please give a little comment love to each and every crafter along the way. We hope you enjoy our hop, and most of all we all want YOU to give yourself the greatest gift and do a self-check tomorrow. The more you do it, the more breast aware you will be!

Our hop starts at Patricia's blog so if you started some where else please start there you don't want to miss what we have for you.

If you have just arrived from Nicole's blog, I am sure you were treated to her wonderful talent.  She always has the most creative ideas to share.  As for me, as I thought about what I wanted to share today I knew it would be another album.  This time I had in mind my 2 sisters and how much I love them and appreciate them.  I built this album based on the idea when I finish it I will include pictures of the 3 of us as we grew up together.  But for now, I will share with you my ideas in their rough draft.  (because these albums take a lot of work and forethought, and I want it to be "just right" in its' finished format.  When I do get it completed, I will show you all again with a video.  For now...here it is! (There are a lot of pictures...I hope you enjoy!)


The flowers are handmade.  I will show a tutorial soon on these.  The frame was made by making faux chipboard with the Stretch your Imagination Cricut cartridge

The fun slider card!  Tutorial coming soon!
The mini book made with 1 sheet of 12x12 paper.  I think there is another tutorial in the works!
Lots of pockets all through this paperbag album for tags and photos.
Flip out album...lots of fun pages to add your photos or journaling
Now for some blog candy....


To win this candy it's very simple!  Become a follower of my blog, leave a comment and remember to include an email address so I can contact you should you win!!  Here is what you will win.  One original rubber stamp designed by me from Shelley Bean Stamps.  3 handmade flowers and a mini book for you to accessorize however you would like.

Now it's time to check out the next blog along the hop!!  Stephanne has something great in store for you! 

And in case you need some direction...here is a list of all the wonderful blogs included in this hop!
