Chichiboulie Blog Hop

Welcome to Stamping Bella's Chichiboulie Blog Hop! Who needs to go trick-or-treating when you have Chichiboulie eye candy? You should have come to me from Laura's blog. If not, start the blog hop here.

I am so excited to celebrate Gretchen and her line of Chichiboulie stamps! I have been a Chichiboulie fan since Gretchen's stamps first appeared on Stamping Bella. You can find her Bittybloom stamps here and her Fairie stamps here. Gretchen herself is such a delightful woman! I am so honored to call her my friend. And I am in awe of her talent! Check out her artwork here and her blog here. You'll be glad you did!

Now, onto my project. I wanted to make a picture frame for Emma's room (my granddaughter). Her room is decorated with daisies and ladybugs, so my stamp choice was easy: Daisy Bittybloom! Last year, Emma dressed as a ladybug (with a yellow daisy) for Halloween. I just couldn't resist putting this photo and this stamp together for her room!

I purchased the 5x7 lucite frame at Target for one dollar! Not a bad deal, huh? I used some miscellaneous DP I had in my scrap bag, CTMH Black, SU Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon and Dimensionals, and some paper daisies. This project literally took about 15 minutes!

The best part is that Emma loves it and told me, "Giffy, I proud of you. You did a good job!" Life doesn't get much better than that!

Now, hop on over to Kathy's blog for the next entry. Remember, there is a $25 Stamping Bella gift voucher hidden somewhere along the blog hop. Be sure to comment on every blog for a chance to win! The winner will be randomly drawn from among the comments left on the pre-selected blog. Happy blog-hopping and good luck!

TFL and Happy Halloween!
