Imaginarium Designs and Manor House Creations Blog Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the Imaginarium Designs and Manor House creations Blog Hop!!


If you've arrived here from Sandie Edwards blog, then you're right on track! If not, head back to the beginning of the hop HERE at the Imaginarium Designs blog!

I was so excited to hear that Manor House Creations would be teaming with Imaginarium chipboard for a blog hop, and even more excited when my very generous parcel of chipboard and flowers arrived; how lucky am I to be able to create with such wonderful and unique products!!

Here is my layout, a very recent photo of my daughter and I at a local park.


and close ups of the beautiful Manor House flowers and the Imaginarium chip - they work so well together. 




Products used:
Flourish - IDFL0002 - Embossed with Stampendous embossing enamel.
Corner - IDC0003 cut into flower shapes and then inked and embossed with clear embossing powder. I have then added a large brad.
Title - IDP0030 inked and then embossed with clear embossing power.

and the beautiful Manor House flowers:
The Tropics - These are those stunning yellow ones,
Whimsy - Cream and 
Sublime - Aqua

Before you go, here's what you need to do from here:

1.  Please leave me a comment to be in the running for the Imaginarium Prize Pack.
2.  Be sure to become a follower of my blog.
3.  Continue along the hop.  Your next stop is at Julianne Mc Kenna-De Lumen.

thanks for popping by today, lots more inspiration to come!
Gwen
