Dream Pop Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Dream Pop Blog Hop!  We will be featuring the Dream Pop paper packet, which is the National Scrapbooking Month promotion for the month of May!  If you have came here from Kathy's Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

My card also features the May Stamp of the Month, Pinwheel!  Super cute set that will be perfect for your summer cards and scrapbook pages!  I stamped my pinwheels in pigment ink and embossed with clear powder.  I was unsuccessful in rolling the perfect cardstock straw, so I raided the pantry for a straw.  I had hoped to come up with a super cute striped straw that would match my color scheme....no such luck!  I took a clear straw and colored with my Copics.  Now I have the perfect coordinating pinwheel!

Here is a look at the complete set of paper that you will receive in the Dream Pop Collection-
