Social [Media] Butterflies blog hop :]

Hellllo fellow social media lovers, crafters & scrapbookers!

Hopefully you started out on our [welcome page] & know you're in for lots of chances to win some amazing prizes & see lots of new projects by some incredible ladies! I decided to start the Social [Media] Butterflies group to show off the talents of the amazing ladies I've met through social media, I don't think this industry would be what it is today without the help of all the connections we have! I will be hosting a blog hop every month on the 29th, feel free to contact me at if you would like to become involved, we'd love to have you!

To start you off, I scraplifted [Trisha], which is the inspiration behind this blog hop! She posted this awesome layout on her instagram feed,  I immediately knew it would be perfect to make with some of the projects I have! Go check her out on instagram-- trishacakes or see her Studio Calico gallery here >>> trishacakes24

The dearlizzy polaroid paper is definitely one of my favorites, I bought a few of them to hoarde, but Echo Park & Studio Calico make similar designs as well. But when I saw her page what I reallllly wanted was to make use of my Lawn Fawn Say Cheese stamp set. Here's what I did with the same basic layout as Trisha's page--

A few detail shots:

Used Basic Grey PB&J, little details from my OHDeerMe June kit,
some bits & pieces from Studio Calico & a flair button from A Flair for Buttons :] Absolutely LOVE how it looks!

Sadly, Trisha couldn't make it last minute, but she'll definitely be joining us next month on the hop, but still go send her some love on her projects! Instead, next you'll head to Margrethe's blog who I owe a scraplift to make up for it :] You won't have ANY problem falling in love with her projects, so hop on over!

&& who DOESN'T love a giveaway?? I promised you lots of inspiration & prizes, so of course I have to giveaway one here at my blog! I am giving away a $10 store credit to Freckled Fawn because I absolutely LOVE their products & I know you will too! Leave a comment below, follow me here, twitter, or instagram and let me know about it-- all these chances! & one of you will be the lucky winner, I'll give you until Sunday the 1st at midnight EST. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy our Social [Media] Butterflies blog hop!
