CTO Pool Party Blog Hop

Hello and thanks for stopping by! Welcome to Celebrate the Occasion Pool Party Blog Hop, if you are coming from Girlia, you are on the right track! If you are just stopping by to visit me, head over to Celebrate the Occasion and start there to see all the great projects and enter for some blog candy!!

This blog hop is to showcase the designers, check out the great Pool Party projects and a chance to win some blog candy! For this hop, I wanted to try something different, that I had never made!  I created a Twisted Easel Card, it was pretty easy!  I watched Mary @ CardzTV tutorial.  I used Sesame Street Seasons, Cookie Monster is cut @ 5"!  I cut him big, so all the small pieces would be easier to handle:)  Also, because my card stands tall, I flip my card backwards to close.   Sentiment (Party Animal) is My Pink Stamper.  I found this great paper @ the scrapbook expo I attend in April.



Now onto what is really important, BLOG CANDY! $15 gift card to Michael's, Joann's or Hobby Lobby, your choice!!! Leave one comment, become a friend if you like (not necessary) and a way for me to contact you! All comments must be left by Sunday, June 5th, 11:59 PM (EST). Thanks and have fun!!!!
Now hop on over to Amy to see her great work!

Here is the line up of the blog hop just in case you get lost:

Cookie Monster used to be one of my favorite SS characters. I guess that is why I love cookies so much. ;) I like that wave paper. I was looking for some the other day. Looks great as the background.

Cards like this make me regret not getting the Sesame Street cartridge when I saw it on sale! I didn't think I'd have a reason for it, but you proved me wrong! Great card! I agree with you about cutting the characters bigger (I do that with the one Disney character I made!). I don't think I'd be able to handle anything small!
