September Diva Inspirations Blog Hop

IMG_5832
Good morning!  Welcome to the September Diva Inspirations Blog Hop!  If you’ve arrived here from Janelle’s blog, you are right on track.  If not, check out the blog list below or head to the Verve Blog for all the details of the Hop. You could win some new Verve by leaving some comment love on each Diva’s Blog Post :)
As with last month’s Inspiration hop, I used Diva Jen’s Sketch for You to Try!  I had a few ideas flying through my brain for this one and this is what came out! LOL  I was inspired by being back at work so I chose some school-ish paper and the cute little grid image from Tag Time that fits perfectly onto the Tagged Rectangle die.  I needed a bold sentiment to stand out from the busy patterned paper so flipped through my Verve binders and found this fun one from You are Fabulous.  The scalloped flower from Brighter Days was a left over one from last week’s Viva La Verve card. I stamped the image again, cut out part of it and then layered the 2 to create some dimension.

I love that big hi there sentiment! Can you tell that I've been loving on my new Verve? A few more days of creating with it and I'll put into my Verve box! Love all the Verve yumminess on your card. Thinking I should have ordered that little banner die!

Lvoe the color combo you used and I would be up for more of the bold statements like the one you used. They are so handy - whisper into Julee's ear for me ;) Have a great first day with the kids!!
