Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Summer Blog Hop with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!

This weekend we will be featuring projects all about Summer!

We hope you enjoy all of the great work this Design Team has done and find some summer inspiration. 
Happy Summer!

If you came from Jessica's blog then you are in the right spot!

 My project is a 12 x 24 canvas for a friend, featuring her grand kids.

Supplies used:

Echo Park Hello Summer - Ginger Snap Scraps 
Fish - Animal Kingdom cricut cartridge
Paint, Mod Podge, canvas, Sharpie marker, googly eyes and pearls are all from my stash
I posted the close up pictures so you can see the details.  This is such a fun project.  I love to mix paper and paint. And I also love to get my hands dirty.

 Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Gabrielle.

We hope you enjoy our Summer Blog Hop!
