Taylored Expressions BLAST from The PAST Blog Hop...

Hey everyone!

I'm so excited to be participating in another Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past BLOG HOP! {{{Please scroll down for my MTSC post, thank you!}}}

Today, a bunch of us are hopping along with creations made from Taylored Expressions stamps that were just kicking off in the past year or two!   I used one of my FAVE stamp sets to date "The Places You'll Go", based on all kinds of amazing Dr. Seuss-isms!  LOVE that!  This set is still available in the Taylored Expressions store, so head on over to check out all of the awesome sentiments in it!

I used some bright and FUN papers from Echo Park to create my card today, stamped the sentiment and then popped up the cute hot air balloon to appear as if it's flying up in the clouds :)   This is such a fun and whimsical set, it needed buttons-LOTS of buttons to finish off the card and Up, up and away we go!

Thank you SO, SO much for coming by today  and joining us in our Blast from the PAST blog hop!   I am so excited to see what everyone else came up with, and don't forget ONE lucky wins a stamp set from Taylored Expressions today!

Here's the rest of our stellar Blog Hoppers-thanks so much for stopping by here!  I've been really looking forward to this hop!!


I'll see you all very soon and will leave you with some really feel-good sentiments that really caught my eye:

"The best way of travel, however, if you aren't in any hurry at all, if you don't care where you are going, if you don't like to use your legs, if you don't want to be annoyed at all by any choice of directions, is in a balloon.   


In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely to nature."  ~William Pene DuBois  'The Twenty-One Balloons'


"My definition [of a philosopher] is of a man up in a balloon, with his family and friends holding the ropes which confine him to earth and trying to haul him down."  ~Louisa May Alcott


Thanks again for coming by-and REACH for the sky today, everyone!  Live your DREAMS!  You are the pilot of your own life...or at the very least, your little Hot Air Balloon in the sky :)

Jess, this is such a wonderful card! That was my very first Taylored Expression's set! I was trying so hard to not expand my stamp collection beyond my already beloved lines, but that set was way too awesome!! :-)Traci
