sweet peach blog hop layout | the dig at atlantis

 

Welcome to my stop on the Sweet Peach Crop Shop blog hop! If you're arriving on my post first, you might want to bounce back to the starting point on the Sweet Peach blog and visit all the stops in order. We've all got fabulous giveaways you can enter today, and you don't want to miss any of them!

If you hop along with everyone, you'll also get a sneak preview of the October design team gallery since we're all sharing layouts made with the fabulous October kits!

I'm a "Juicy" girl this month, and the Pink Paislee Nantucket papers and summer vibe of the kit immediately inspired me to grab some photos from our Nassau vacation last December. Our visit to the aquarium at Atlantis was one of the highlights of the trip, so I printed up a few of those photos to use on this page.

The doilies and wood stars are actually from the October Sweet kit. I loved everything so much this month that I got it all!

And that giveaway I mentioned? Each design team member chose their favorite item from the October kits and will be giving it away on their blog!

My favorite was most definitely the package of hexagonal chipboard tiles from the Nantucket collection- they're such unique embellishments and a really easy way to add a pop of color and a little graphic flair (you can read more about my obsession with honeycombs and lattices in general in this article I wrote for Scrapbook Update last month).


So, what do you say? Would you like to enter to win a package of these chipboard tiles to call your very own? You have until midnight, October 5, 2011 to leave a comment on this post (please make sure to fill in your email address on the comment form- if you don't leave me a way to get in touch with you, I'll have to pick someone else, which would make me a sad panda). I'll use Random.org to select a winner and will email you directly should you win.

Now, hop on over to Missy Whidden's blog for the next stop on the hop and your next chance to win an item from the October kit!
