TE Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Hi everybody! Today's the day for the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop! The hop starts at with Taylor! If you're following the blog in order, you should have arrived at my blog from Angela Bear at Angie's Originals. If you want to continue in order, next your next stop is Alison Anderson.

For the hop, Taylor asked all of us participants to use a TE set that was introduced prior to 2008 or 2009, hence the blast from the past title! She also provided an optional sketch from Sankari Wegman for us to use, and I did! I like sketches because they give me a starting point so I'm not staring at my craft table waiting for an idea! I pulled out one of my all-time favorite sets, Chill-ax! It's warming up here in So Cal and it's starting to feel more and more like summer. I pulled out some Doodlebug Designs paper from my stash and used the colors from the paper to color my umbrella drink. I guess I was going for a tequila sunrise effect on this one!

If you're ready to check out some more blast from past blogs, here's the complete list:


Supplies:

Stamps: Chill-ax from Taylored Expressions

Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copic markers

Paper: Only Orange, green galore, neenah white, Doodlebug patterned paper

Accessories: Nestabilities, corner rounder, Petaloo flowers
