My First Blog Hop!

 Today I am super excited to be part of my very first blog hop! Practical Scrappers has paired up with Paper Secrets to bring you a blog hop featuring Wood as a design element!

You should have arrived here from 
Stephanie U's
blog, and I am so glad to have you hop along to my blog! I had a lot of fun creating this great wall hanging with a wood placemat for a base! 

After using stencils to paint the quote, I used Washi tape as a border and added some Little Yellow Bicycle Dimensional accents.

I also have a bonus project for you today!  We moved into a new house and I am trying to find ways to make it our own.  Both of my projects lend themselves to that. 

For this project I took a wooden letter and wrapped it in washi tape.

I used glue dots to add the laser cut wooden cross and washi tape to create a hanger with a bow.

I am so excited to be a part of my first blog hop I decided to do a giveaway for one lucky follower! Just follow my blog and leave a comment and you will be entered to win this great prize.  Winner will be chosen at random on Thursday, August 29th and will be announced here on the pspapercreations blog.
