SEPT 30th BLOG HOP Starts Here!

Welcome to our Fred She Said Blog Hop!  I can't wait to see what the DT have made! I let them use any FSS product they wished and asked them to show off their personal design style! So let's get HOPPING! woo!

While you are hopping, there are special words at each stop ( even at the last stop!... there should be 14 words) ... collect them all up and there will be instructions at the last hop on how to enter.  The lucky winner will be picked randomly from the entries and will receive a $20 CAD Gift Certificate to the Fred She Said Store AND a $20 Gift Certificate to Crop Stop 
.

Challenge Blog ( last stop & instructions)

Please leave the girls some love ( but comments are not required for winning)  :)

Here is Fred's creation for the Blog Hop:


I used the Sunflowers & Thankfulness Pre-Coloured Set on matte photo paper and cut 2 sunflower trio images out and 3d'ed them and added some  lines of yellow stardust pen for some glitter.  I printed a plaid background and played around and made a digital swirly to try out my new Viva Pearl Pens on!  I need a bit more practice but these are FUN!  I also used a CB folder from the Heritage Collection.. love this folder! If I would hazard a guess, I think I have nailed my style .... flowers, pearls and swirlies OH MY! LOL

I have a FREEBIE for you!!!  an 8x8 Plaid paper to match the Sunflowers & Thankfulness set, a swirly digi/template in jpg and PNG and a sheet with the swirly already coloured to match gold or silver.. the silver can be used with any colour pearl pen even stickles or glitter glue.



Please go to this link to download the zip!
EDIT OOPS!  I forgot to add the plaid paper to the zip!  Go HERE to download the file!

OK... Here is my SPECIAL WORD for the Blog Hope CODE!...  THANKS

Now please go to NANCY's blog for our next stop on the hop!  And have fun!

Apple For Teacher / Back to School

It's that time of the year again... woohoo!  Kids are GOING BACK TO SCHOOL!  yey!

I put up a digi in honour of this glorious event LOL!



Apple for Teacher Digi Set can be found at the store :)

I coloured this image with pencils, OMS and glossy accents.  The actual pencils were from a 24 set of Koh-i-Noor woodless pencils.  I used an orangey red, darker red, bit of dark pink and a yellow to colour the apple... looks good enough to eat!  The set comes with alot of variations, including just the apple, and also has a Back To School alternate sentiment.

Yes I am sooo happy!  Off you go, kids! :D
