Bombshell Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Paper Pretties Post please scroll down.

Hey all. Today is the Bombshell Stamps April Challenge Showcase and BlogHop! This months challenge was designed and is hosted by the oh so talented Ms. April - - Racheal! The April Challenge is to make something Wedding related. If you are arriving from Sparkly Mary's blog then you are on the right track. If you haven't arrived from there, why don't you head on over to the Bombshell Blog and get started!!!

Now, I am not sure about all of y'all, but let me tell you I absolutely am extremely excited about the Royal Wedding. I know I am not from England, but I remember both of the royal weddings (Diana and Charles, and Sarah and Andrew), so I can't wait to watch William and Kate. YAY. Yes, I will be watching! EEeeeek.

Anyway, my take on this was to try to make a wedding bouquet.

I got the idea from the World Card Making Day Challenges last September where we were to make a card using JUST the icons. I made a wreath. For this one I used the same technique... coloring and cutting out flowers. The flowers I stamped are from the Hula Girl set. I then put the flowers in a bouquet like shape (or my attempt at it). :-) The sentiment... well I am a dorkfish, so I liked it. LOL.

The other cool thing was to use the Text Generator and Font Database on the Bomobshell Stamps page to create the sentiments!

The flowers were SIMPLE. I colored them up with R81, 83, 85 and YG61, 63, 67. That is it.  Then I cut them out, ran them through a Xyron and then pieced them together. :-)

I hope you all continue along on the blog hop. The next step on the hop is Stempelientje's Stamped Creations.

Hope to see you again soon!
