Create With TLC Blog Hop - Child's Play


Good morning!  The time we've all been waiting for has finally arrived!  It's time for another Create With TLC Blog Hop! Paulette and the TLC Creations Design Team have lots of inspiration and goodies to share with you today!  Our theme this time is "Child's Play".  If you arrived here from Marsha's fantastic blog, you are in the right place.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning at the Create with TLC blog and hop from there so you don't miss a single thing!  Paulette has generously provided all the digi images we have used on our creations as freebies that you can pick up at every stop.  To download the images, simply click on the image then right click and save it to your computer.

Here is the "child's play" image I worked with:
Here is my creation:


I started with a card base of SU Old Olive and layered with patterned paper from the Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane Petite Papers pack.  I thought it was perfect with all the sweet vintage kids at play on it!  I printed Paulette's image, Childhood Sailing Vintage, onto Cryogen White and colored with Copics.  I did a bunch of masking to airbrush the large areas of grass and sky.    The sentiment is also from Create With TLC.  It can be found in Paulette's store here.  

Thanks for hopping by!  From here, your next stop is Audrey's wonderful blog.  I know she has something amazing to share with you!   Enjoy the rest of the hop!


If you get lost along the way, here is the full line-up:

Have a great weekend!
