TE Blast From the Past Blog Hop


It's time for the Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!  For this month, I decided to pull out the Sweet Occasions set.  I used the sketch that Sankari provided, which worked perfectly!  I paper pieced the house as well as the word "congrats".  The rest was colored using Copic markers and I added some Stardust Stickles on all the "snowy" parts.  


After I colored the frame, I took my Copic Blender and added the polka dots by just holding the marker on spots until the pink colored was pushed away. 

Now here's my favorite part. . .hopping around to see all of the older sets people used!  Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
