Hello everybody! Today I'm participating in the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop. Hopefully you started with Taylor's blog! If you're still on track, you should have arrived from Chris' blog.
The theme for this month's hop is love, which was the perfect excuse for me to pull out these cute little whales! Whales in love is an a la carte stamp; I was lucky enough to pick mine up when Taylor and her team were in Southern California last year for the CHA Super Show! I used the sketch Sankari provided as inspiration for the layout. I paired the whales with some fabulous papers and a sticker sentiment from the Echo Park Paper Be Mine Collection. I added Stickles to the hearts for a little touch of sparkle.
Edited to add: At the urging of my friend Paula, I'm also entering this card in the Gray is the New Black challenge on Moxie Fab World! I have been using a lot of gray lately - it is definitely a go-to color right now!
