Welcome to the Creative Soup "Fun in the Sun' Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Soup "Fun in the Sun" Crop and Blog Hop.


We all decided to get together and have blog hop with a twist! Each member will have a part of a recipe to make a layout. Go around to each of the blogs in the hop, and you'll have all the instructions for a great challenge! Put at least 6 of the recipe elements on a layout/project, and link it back to the challenge thread HERE.

My recipe element is to include stars (either punched, cut, drawn, etc.) on your layout.

Take a look at Laura's layout, for a great example of this. This layout is from the 5.9 Mojo Monday Challenge - Get Sketchy, Anna Bowkis/Pencil Lines. 
Here is a link to that Mojo Monday Challenge MM Challenge.

Here is Laura's layout....


I was lovin' the star theme so much, I created a layout using my totally awesome Martha Stewart star punch. 


I love using the negative of punches, packaging, stickers, etc.  They can be used in so many creative ways. 

I took this photo several years ago on a trip between PA and OH.  It was a cold January day, and the only sound at the Flight 93 memorial was the wind.

Here's some more closeups.




and here is the finished layout...


I can't wait to see how you incorporate stars with the recipe!  Please leave a comment below so I know that you were here to get this ingredient to the recipe.  Now, On to the HOP!!!!!

Here is the list of participants in the hop and links to their blogs; up next is Jenifer

And if you happen to get lost, remember you can always go back to the original challenge thread!

I do so love your use of negatives Tina! and so have to lift the idea one of these days. I get tons and tons of inspo from all of your pages but if/when I use an itty detail it never turns out quite the way you have done it. Thanks lovie for not giving up on me, even if I am absent for quite some time I ALWAYS come back! Workload is excruciating at the mo. xoxoxox
