Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop




Get out your Space-Hoppers and Pogo-Sticks...it's Blog Hop Time!!


Our theme this month, chosen by the Hostess with the Mostess Jak, is Colours of Autumn

I trawled all the local craft shops trying to find leafy punches but came home empty handed.
Then I remembered my Crealie Die Cutters (this one is CLCS12)...I forgot I had them in my stash already...DOH! And they were just what I wanted to create my scene for Skateboard Schoolboy, from Mo's Digital Pencil, swishing his way thru' the autumn leaves looking dead-cool! The leaves were die-cut from scraps of Basic Grey Indian Summer papers & gold gift-tags with red glitter highlights & doodled swirls.

If you're joining in with our hop, then you should have arrived here from Lori's fabulous blog. After me it's Julie with I'm sure another inspiring creation. If you're lost or would like to start at the beginning then pop back to Jak's blog.

As always there are two $5 vouchers up for grabs to spend at Mo's Digital Pencil. For your chance to nab one, leave some 'Lurv' along the way...enjoy the Hop!
