Charlie Brown & the Gang Blog Hop

Welcome to Charlie Brown and the Gang Blog Hop. Charlie Brown and his gang are out to play with us today whether it be baseball, holding the football or just hangin' out!!!! Don't forget that Snoopy has to get the Red Baron and not fall behind the enemy lines. Also, you may want to stop off at Lucy's booth to have a second opinion!!!Not only all these characters, Kari's son Josh, loves Charlie Brown with his favorite character being Snoopy and its his 18th birthday! Be sure to wish Josh a Happy Birthday on Kari's Blog at http://purplefuntastickcreations.blogspot.com/.

There are so many characters to depict here and we all have our favorites!!!! With this in mind, we will be setting up scenes whether it be a lay-out, card, decorative piece but rest assured, you will be seeing Charles Schultz characters being showcased!!!!!

Now, if you just happened to be visiting me, I'm thrilled and glad to show you my project and offer you advice for 5 cents, BUT I would love for you to start at the beginning of our story and that is with Kari at http://purplefuntastickcreations.blogspot.com/. Now, if you arrived from Kimberly's blog then you are on the correct base on the baseball field!!!

We have a terrific All-Star group of sponsors:
  • Lynne Kirsch - chipboard figures of Charlie Brown and the Gang
  • Shannon Leffew Keith offering flowers from her etsy shop
  • Colleen Duffy Hathaway is offering a paper pieced set of your choice from Scraptastical Kreations (http://scraptasticalkreations.com/)

OK, so first I just have to make you all aware that I have never colored anything for scrapping purposes before, so this was a first for me!
My first project I am sharing is the card I made for Kari's son, Josh. (Happy Birthday, Josh!) I printed out a coloring page and used chalks and chalk pencils to color them. I then pop dotted Charlie Brown and Snoopy onto my card. Easy peasy. I am pretty happy with it, considering it was a first for me. :)

 Next, I have a scrapbook LO for you. I decided to make a page for my own album. I used Linus and his blankie b/c my little guy is attached to his blankie 24/7! I colored him the same way, and again pop dotted him onto my LO. The LO's I create for myself are much more simple than ones I sell, so I am pretty pleased with this one. Now, I didn't get to CVS to get the 5x7 made, so I will just post a pic of the pic that will be going on here!
Now..... I am one of the sponsors for the hop, but I am also offering some personal blog candy too!! I am giving to 1 lucky hopper some goodies from my personal stash! All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me some love & "LIKE" my fan page at CBC Scrapbooking & post that you are hopping by! You can also see some pics of my work while you are there, so in case you win that prize, you will have some ideas! :) Good luck and Happy Hopping!
Happy Scrappin'
