The Paper Variety Blog Hop

Good  morning! Welcome to the first PAPER VARIETY blog hop! We are so excited to announce this week's color challenge, generous prize and sponsor, share our projects with you and offer some BLOG CANDY for hopping today. We have some FABULOUS designers at TPV and want to showcase their personal blogs this week.


So, if you are coming from Shannon you are in the right place! If not, head back to THE PAPER VARIETY to get started from the beginning and see a list of all the links if you get lost along the way. You don't want to miss a thing! :)


Our challenge this week is a COLOR challenge in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday :)


Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Your Scrapbook Stash!


In order to win this GRAND PRIZE you need to submit your own GREEN project toThe Paper Variety by Tuesday at NOON. If you submit before Sunday evening, you have a chance to have your blog featured on TPV! ;)

To get you inspired, I want to share with you....

When I saw this challenge prompt (create a project with at least 50% green) I knew I wanted to create a scene scrapbook layout. I decided to scrap "The Tree of Life" from Animal Kingdom from our visit to Florida last summer. 

I was hoarding this MME Quite Contrary paper from my stash and I was so happy to finally use it. I loved combining the trees paper with my clouds paper for my scene. Some stickers, fussy cut trees and clouds were attached with pop-dots to add dimension. 

The original color from the Prima flower was cream. I applied green mist to this flower to better combine  with the patterned papers. Love the glitter effect of the glimmer mist.

Thanks so much for visiting today! It wouldn't be a hop without some BLOG CANDY :)

This is an assortment of 15 patterned papers from Sassafras, Lily Bee, KI Memories and Basic Grey with several embellishments from Prima, Petaloo, KI Memories, Imaginesce...

Please become a follower and leave a comment 
below to win! You do not need to enter the challenge to win blog candy.

However, you ARE going to want to hop to the next design team member to see their GREEN! 


We are looking forward to seeing YOUR green at THE PAPER VARIETY, too!  Remember to link up before TUESDAY at noon for a chance to win the GRAND PRIZE! :)

Have a wonderful day!!!!
Yara

Hello, Hola Yara!!
He quedado fascinada con tu página... los colores combinan super bien con la foto.

Magnifica creación.

Just discovered your blog on this hop and I'm glad I did. Funny, when I first saw the photo in your layout, I thought to myself that the tree looked just like the tree of life in the Lion King! Then I read your post and tada! It is, indeed, the tree of life! Anyway, your layout is very cool and that paper is cute as can be. Thanks for sharing!
