ESAD SUMMER MINI BLOG HOP!

If you’ve landed on my blog as you are exploring the Summer Mini Blog Hop, then you probably came by way of Ros’s blog here.  I’m sure you’re just buzzing about all the fabulous examples that you have already seen made with product from the brand new Summer Mini Catalogue – I know I am!!! 

Chase and Parker bath page

I put together a scrapbook page for you made with what I think is going to be my favourite set from the mini, I {Heart} Hearts.  This set is just so cute – I see so much potential for it (in fact I’ll share a card that I made with it tomorrow!)

My son, Chase, is probably going to have a fit when he sees these photos since they were taken when he was 5 (and he turned 12 last week).  It’s obviously not “cool” to have bath photos of you on the internet when you’re 12 … but the boys were soooo cute when they were this little …

heart button polka dot ribbon

Did you notice the FABULOUS polka-dotted ribbon and those scrummy bright new new buttons?  There are so many awesome things available in the brand new Summer Mini – what do we buy first?  Check out my product shares on offer for all sorts of options to make your dollar stretch further.

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian Demonstrator (they started before Stampin’ Up! hit New Zealand, but they are very friendly even to us Kiwis!).  If you are a Australian or Kiwi Stampin’ Up! demonstrator then you can join in the ESAD Yahoo group by clicking this button

Do you want to go in the draw for some fabulous blog candy?!  Then stop and comment on all 30 of the blogs on this blog hop, then e-mail Leonie at leonie@stamp-a-latte.com and let her know how much you enjoyed it!

Thanks for stopping by to see me, I hope to see you back again soon!  Make sure you swing on over to Sonia’s blog to see what she’s been creating with those cute butterflies …
