Little Darlings Blog Hop!

 Welcome to the Little Darlings release blog hop!
If you've come here from Lena's beautiful blog, then you're in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Love To Stamp blog to make sure that you don't miss a single thing!

Today is the Little Darlings Stamps Back To School release (see above for all the images) and we're celebrating with a blog hop!  Mindy kindly asked me to be a guest today today's festivities and of course I said yes.  I just couldn't resist since, well, since the images are just so darling!

For today's hop card, I'm using the adorable image, Science 101 which can be found HERE.  Isn't she so sweet?  She reminds me of myself :)  There really aren't any other images out there like this one!  I tried to come up with some funky embellishments that were science-related and couldn't so I'm a bit disappointed in myself. The little squiggly red thing is supposed to be the double helix structure of DNA, but it didn't come out as great as I had hoped, lol.  The clear dew drops were supposed to look like bubbles?? Alright, that's reaching FAR I know : /

Oh, and Angie is kindly letting me give away this cute stamp to a random blog hopper!  To enter for a chance to win, please leave your name and email in the InLinkz below.  Make sure you visit everyone in the hop because there are tons of prizes to be won!

I used the Whimsy Stamps Balloon Die Set to cut out the balloons and I stamped inside one of them using a sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Mini Party Letter Seals.  You can also get many of the Whimsy Stamps sentiments at the Love to Stamp store HERE at incredibly low prices! I think all of them are at 15% off.
