May Stamp of the Month Blog Hop
A blog hop is just one big loop of fun, creative ideas. If you are coming from Michelle's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Jen's blog at the end of my post. Each blog you visit will feature links to continue following the hop.
This month's stamp set, Classic Summer Bash, features 25 stamps and is available only through the month of May. You can purchase this set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant.
My project is a scrapbook page using the stamp of the month along with papers from the Whimsy Fundamental Collection of papers.
