a SUNNY Blast from the Past...

Hey, everyone!

Today is the BLAST from the PAST Blog Hop w/ Taylored Expressions and I am SENDING YOU SUNSHINE (and a HECK of a lot of HEAT, oh. my.) from Chi-town as I am at CHA with my girl Jen Shults :)

I am SO excited to be seeing some familiar faces and can't wait to reunite with some precious friends as well as my cousin/BFF Kim!  HOORAY for CHA!

Today's Blast from the Past Blog hop features a theme of SUNSHINE.   So, I am sending you SUNSHINE using one of my favorite sets from Taylored Expressions, "The Places You'll Go!"

For today's hop, the beautiful Sankari (who I cannot WAIT to hug again in person!!!) provided a sketch:


I have to admit, when I first saw this sketch I was a little skeered, heehee.  But, here's my take on it, using the JULY KEY INGREDIENTS kit:

Be sure to HOP today as there is a FREE STAMP SET of choice from Taylored Expressions that will be issued to one lucky hopper!  Here is the list of talented participants:



That's it for me today!
Take care and enjoy the SUNSHINE  I'm sending your way!  <3
xoxo,
