Welcome to the Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog! I hope you're enjoying the hop so far! If you've arrived here from the awesome Suzanna Lee you're in the right place! If not, you may want to go to the start of the hop: Jennifer Haggerty.

This is the very first time I'm joining in the "Scrapping Our Stash" blog hop and I hope there will be many more to come, as my stash is huge! 

Here's what I created for today's hop, using a very old Pink Paislee collection "Hometown Summer". I love(d) this collection so much I just hung on to it, but now it had gotten all dusty and the colors started to fade a bit around the edges, so I thought it was high time I used it:

I also used the "Circles within Circles" digital cutfile from the 17turtles shop, as these circles so perfectly repeat the circle of that "thing" my son is standing in in the photo (it's actually a part from a pop-up tent). 

The circle stamp is one of my favorite stamps and is from Scraptastic Club

I just adore the colors, stickers, chipboard pieces & die-cuts in this collection! I'm so happy I finally used it!

And this is the 17turtles "Circles Within Circles" cut file I used:
