Keeping the Peace Blog Hop

Welcome to the Keeping the Peace Blog Hop! I would like to thank our wonderful host, Adri, at My Cherie Creations, for putting this awesome hop together!  If you arrived here from Carrie's blog then you are on the right track. If you did not you are going to want to start at our host Adri's blog, so you do not miss out on any of the fun.

For this hop we were asked to create anything that related to the theme of Keeping the Peace. When I think of peace many things come to mind, but most importantly I thought about the things that put me at peace or represnt peace to me (butterflies, love, and music) if I have all of these things then I am at my happiest and all is good in the world to me. That being said, this is the card that I created!

I just love how this came together

This was cut from the Rock Princess Cartridge. I used some fine glitter to accent the music notes, hearts, and peace sign.

The butterfly was cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge. Her headphones are also from the Rock Princess cartridge. I added some stickles and glitter for some added bling! I also used my Peachy Keen Everyday Character set for her face! Isn't she just adorable!

The inside of the card.

I used Emma's Just a Note to Say set for the sentiment

And Emma's bonus stamp for the back!

What would a blog hop be without some candy?!?

Fun card Lynda. Love that you used the black lettering. I love to use a lot of black on my cards and layouts but not many others seem too. Its the first paper that I run out of.

Peace to me is just being home with my family. I'd rather spend a day at home with my family and dogs then go out and about.

Smiles Sher

I totally agree with Adri - LOVE ... without Love, how can you have Peace? I don't think you can.

I really like how you glittered up the purple notes, heart, and peace sign!

Hip Hop and Awaaaaayyy!
