Crafty Secrets & Eclectic Paperie Blog Hop!

Good morning to you! Today is going to be a FUN blog hop with the Eclectic Paperie girlies!! Yay!!!
Both Eclectic Paperie and Crafty Secrets will be giving away prizes. A total of six prizes all together! You can find out more about the prizes on the Heartwarming Vintage and Eclectic Paperie blogs. (linked below). The more DT blogs you visit and leave comments on, the more you increase your chances of winning one of the 6 prizes! Winners will be announced on Monday!

We had a pretty open challenge......to use shabby or distressed. So I decided on this adorable new stamp set called, Little Girl. I colored this sweet girl in with Copics and did a bit of paper piecing on her shirt and skirt. I stamped the balloon and filled it in with glitter and then cut it out. I attached thin string to it so my girl could hold on to her glittery balloon! The paper is by Girl's Paperie. I took a 12 x 12 sheet of shaped paper and cut it into fourths and then folded it in half. (It kind of looks like the state of Illinois, doesn't it? ; ) I added a bit of vintage lace, scrunched seam binding, and a button tied with twine. I "grounded" this gal with hearts cut out using my Spellbinder's dies.

Be sure to check out the other gals' blogs and be sure to leave comments along the way to increase your chances of winning one of the 6 fabulous prizes!!! : )
