YNS Blog Hop........feelin hot hot hot



Hi Guys and welcome to the YNS blog hop! If you have arrived here from the wonderful Maureen's blog then you are on the right track ;0) This hop will be so much fun because to tie in with the fab new releases which are Surfer Fhinn, Aloha Fhiona, Rockstar Fhinn & Rockstar Fhiona the DT have been asked to relate the stamp we are using to either a a favourite Holiday destination or our favourite pop group. We must also include a picture with a reason why it is our favourite holiday or group. Well I had chosen to use Surfer Fhinn and this stamp set is so versatile.
For my 1st creation I used Fhinn himself riding the waves and I thought the inverted scallop circle nesties would look cool as a shaped card to look like the sun.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Now for my second creation I have combined my picture from one of my favourite holidays into my project. This was taken of Ryan and me back in 2002 in the Dominican Republic.
IMG_0012 It was a fantastic holiday and we made some super friends who we have kept in touch with. This particular photograph was taken on an excursion to Paradise Island and paradise it really was. Perfect blue sky and white sand on a tiny piece of island covered with palm trees. We went scuba diving and on a boat tour around the mango groves and then to finish the day off we stopped off at a little shack to eat. It was a truly unforgettable day.
Anyway back to reality and a cold one at that! lol I have used the palm tree stamp which you also get with surfer Fhinn and it is actually 7 times bigger than the charm I have turned it into because I stamped it using shrink plastic. The little lizards are also part of the set.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Now if you fancy your chances at winning the Grand Prize - the entire new releases you will need to add your name and blog url to mister linky and you can still enter even if you don't have a blog ;0)
If you want 2 chances at winning the Grand Prize then all you need to do is make a post on your blog about this blog hop and include a pic and short paragraph about your favourite holiday or Pop group. Then add your name to mister linky twice.
The hop will until 25th Jan midnight (EST) and for full details please see Simonne's blog which is the last stop.
