2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue Sharing what we love - ESAD Blog Hop June 2018

Yay its LIVE! Have you created your wish list yet? Mine is huge and will take all year to save then spend the funds lol. No wish list yet? Well welcome to the ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop - let us add a plethora of goodies to your list. You will find a link at the bottom of this post that takes you to a downloadable version of the catalogue if you don't have a hard copy yet. You can order a paper version through the online store or ask your demonstrator for a copy. 
Lets HOP to it -

I have gone with a scrap page this month - I am loving this Octopus so had to do a page with him on it and yay I have a heap of photos from a trip to Hawaii to suit. My Miss Tara was having a ball with the green screen photo opportunity on the cruise we went on.

The background is made using bubbles - a small amount of water in a cup (about a third) a drop of dish deteregent and some reinker - I used Bermuda Bay for this one. Use a straw to blow bubbles lots of bubbles scrape them off the top of the cup onto your paper then let them dry.

The fish and 'pebbles' are all stuck on with the Fine Tip Glue - it dries clear and not sticky like other adhesives.

I don't know about everyone else but I am not a fan of my handwriting - however I value it and the joy it will bring my kids once I'm no longer here. I have a treasured recipe book of my nans - can't read most of it as her hand writing was shocking but I love it because it is hers.

Thanks for stopping past on your journey through the Hop - there is a list below of all the participants but if you want to go to the next person Fiona - then just hit the big blue button and it will take you straight there. I can't wait to see what goodies she has to share.
