punky scraps blog hop!

They are back online with their challenges, and wanted to host a hop to kick things off! The hop starts at the punky scraps blog, and you should be arriving here from Misty's blog

I'm sharing a favorite project today, and I have to say, I really have a tough time picking a favorite! I try to put a bit of myself into each page or project that I create, so that they all reflect something that I'm really drawn to.  I do find myself going back to this particular layout a lot. It's a layout that I created for American Crafts, and is from April, when I first started using watercolors on my layouts!

Ok, so maybe I have to share two, because this one sticks out to me, as well! Again, lots of watercolors! :)

Be sure to check out the other posts in the hop to see the inspiration from the other girls!

Thanks for joining us as a Punky guest...I LOVE your layouts, they always leave me inspired! I'm pretty sure I could never ever create a cute layout about my time in a dressing room.....I would have to have it in depressing black, or with giant teardrops on the page.;) Love your idea!!

I just wanted to say that I think you are super talented, and I love your layouts. I am just getting back to paper scrapbooking after a long hiatus, and your style really appeals to me! I scraplifted your layout from this post, you can see it here if you'd like: http://artsylynn.blogspot.com/2012/11/my-first-paper-layout.html Thanks for the great inspiration!
