Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop and Just Us Girls

Happy Saturday! I have a two-fer for you today! It's release day for Paper Makeup Stamps and that means it's also our blog hop! You should have arrived here from the PMS blog. If not, start there to get all the details about the hop.

Today also begins a Just Us Girls challenge for this week, and it's a sketch challenge...one of my favorite challenges! Pam is the hostess and here's her sketch. I love how funky this sketch is! That panel on the left is so cool! I used this image from Tweet Things by Paper Makeup Stamps. I'm showcasing the new sentiment stamp set called Build a Sentiment set. It has a bunch of words that you can link together to create a special sentiment. It has family words in it such as Husband, Wife, Niece, Nephew, etc. It's one of those sets that you always wish you had and that you'll use over and over again!

The paper is from Cosmo Cricket called Circa 1934. I used the Bow Easy to make the double bow out of black satin ribbon and added the red button. It's threaded with some Scrapper's Floss. I've seen other crafters using it and I had to pick some up! It's a fun new accessory for me. The bling is a $1 item I found at AC Moore.

You can see what the JUGs DT did with this sketch on the JUGs blog. I'm so happy to be back playing on this challenge after taking a much needed two week break! But I did miss my JUGs girls!

I want to remind you of our Release Party tonight over in the Paper Makeup Stamps forum. There's always great chatter, prizes, and games going on (and someone always brings cheesecake, too!). It starts at 9:00 pm EST, so we hope to see you there!

Now I'm going to send you on your way hopping over to Christi Snow's blog to see her fabulous creation! I don't have a letter for you, but Christi will!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in!

LISA good to have you back in the jughead's camp. We missed you but totally understand the need for breaks once in a while!!! (I say as I just took one too LOL) You rocked this sketch girlfriend - I love the paper combo - your stunning bow and what is that scrapper's floss???? Wish I had an AC Moore out here. Your image and sentiment are just adorable - all together a really well put-together project. I bet you're glad your year is winding down...
