Spread your Wings and Hop Along with Us

Welcome to KL Stampin N Scrappin's
first Blog Hop!!

The design team is so excited to see what you ladies are going to come up with for our Sparkle themed Blog Hop, and also to share some Sparkly creations of our own. If you are playing along, you have arrived here from Sparkle's blog,
but if not that's okay, you can start back at the beginning HERE.

This sweet little DragonFly Tilda is spreading her wings to take off on a life-long journey out of the roses and into the big, big world just like the young lady that will be receiving this set! I created this sparkling sweetie as a gift for a friend's daughter who just graduated this past June and will be off on her own adventures in the armed service. I know Tilda doesn't look ready for basic training, but she is definitely flying off on an adventure . . . don't ya think?! The sparkly items I used on her are . . . Stickles on her wings and antennae, shimmery ribbon, as well as pretty golden butterflies on the upper right hand side (its so hard to get sparkle to show in a photo, isn' t it?)
The shimmer really shows in the green sheer ribbon though. My inspiration here came from Cheryl's lovely bows and my "basic training" in bow making from when I sold Home Interiors (now don't you laugh). *wink*

Inside the cute Tilda folder are 8 Rose designer paper OSW cards created from the assistance of my dear friend, Luanne! Thanks, Luanne!! These are all Stampin' Up materials from the stamp set to the paper. I do hope Kristen likes them too. They are on their way to sunny South Carolina!

Although I hope she does not have to use this one any time soon, the lacy feel of the edge and the pretty dainty flowers makes this one definitely a favorite (0f mine) from the group.

**Now more details on the hop . . .

If you would like to play the word scramble,
my word for you is "with"
and from here you'll want to make your way over to Jessica's blog.
