If Life Gives You Lemons... / Lemonade Blog Hop


Summertime! What better time than to kick back with a cool drink of lemonade?  Pure and sweet, sour and refreshing all at the same time -- it's a summer staple and something we're celebrating with this Lemonade Blog Hop.

You may have come across this Hop by visiting my blog, if so you will want to start at the beginning with our hostess for the Lemonade Blog Hop, Erica of Erica's Craft Room

Let me show you my project that I created for this hop:


The shadowbox, cocktail glasses and speech bubble were all cut with my Cameo using Silhouette Studio cut files.




Supplies used: cardstock - green, 2 shades of yellow, black, white; vellum;
patterned paper - Lemon Slice from Nan's Favourites Collection by Kaiser craft; black & white vintage photo; font - Noteworthy Light; Pop Dots; metal photo corners - my stash.

I have some surprise blog candy and all you have to do to be entered in the drawing is to be a 
follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post


Your next stop on the Lemonade Blog Hop is Tammy of Creatively Me

For a lot of very "a-peel-ing" projects, one sure to give your creative juices a squeeze, be sure to visit all of the stops, which are:

Lemon Drop!!!!!

HAHA, I love this saying and how cute the vintage cut is with this. It made me smile, and want a cool refreshing drink! In my wild-and-crazy youth, vodka was my drink of choice and I was such a kid then, I'd mix it with Hawaiian Punch. (LOL, even Kool Aid!) Lemon sounds SO much better!

It's a pleasure hopping with you, Esther!

Fondly,
