I'm back...with a BLAST from the PAST!...

Hey everybody!

I missed you as I took a few days off from bloggin' this past weekend.   We've had a lot going on and I just kind of needed a breather.    I'm back today though, feeling rejuvenated and AWESOME and oh, so excited about today's post!

Today is not only another FABulous edition of Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, but also happens to be:

The TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS "Blast from the Past" BLOG HOP!

I'm so excited to be a part of it today!

We have a ton of fun ideas using some of Taylor's awesome stamp sets that were released in 2008 and 2009!   I used my absolute FAVORITE TE set of all time, "Fresh Flowers" to create my card today.

I used (quite liberally, I might add, LOL) Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for this week, MTSC74:

Be sure to check out the Muses today -links on my sidebar :)

Today for Taylor's "Blast from the Past" blog hop, we have a fun, optional sketch designed by the AMAZING Bakers Dozen member and my sweet friend, Sankari Wegman!  I didn't use the sketch today, but it's a GREAT one and I'll be using it for sure in the future!  Here it is:

We have a lot more fun in store for you so don't forget to check out the rest of the hop and see the AWESOME inspiration along the way! Here's who else is enjoying a little BLAST from the PAST:



Thanks again for hoppin' with us today and remember something about the "past"...

I LOVE that....
