New Shoes

** 9/9/15 Top 3 at Pile It On! **

Howdy, everybody! We have a week between challenges over at Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog so we're doing a little something special so you don't get bored, lol! The LTSCB design team is excited to bring you our Find The Hidden Treasure Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs! Come hop with us for a chance to win 2 single Pink Gem Designs images!

There are three gems hidden somewhere on our blogs. As you hop, look on each design team member's blog to find a hidden gem and be sure to leave some love while you're there! Once you have found all three gems, email the locations where you found the gems (blog names and blog links) to All the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the Pink Gems Designs images!

The LTSCB designers are using gemstones on our inspiration projects. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a project using gemstones for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guesses that you use to link up your project so we can make sure you're given two entries into the drawing!**

Okay, I need to side-track for a minute to share my inspiration project! I chose the absolutely gorgeous New Shoes image for my all occasion/friendship card. I'm a girl with a huge shoe fetish so I found this card to be immensely fun! Update: I re-made the bow since this post went live... I wouldn't have mentioned it but several people commented on the original bow that was pretty big. I like this one a lot better, lol!


I'm all about projects that don't require a huge list of supplies. So, in a nutshell, I used two coordinating papers, a couple die cuts, a doily, some wrinkled ribbon and gemstones. Love how it turned out!

I kept the inside simple with a stamped sentiment that I thought went perfectly with the image!
