Happy 2nd Birthday Bugaboo!!!



 Thank-you so much Jody Mackrell for all the wonderful images you have blessed us with.

The theme we have all used for this awesome Blog Hop is……. you guessed it 
"Birthday!"

I have chosen to use Gus Fishing....you can find Gus Here


I think that Gus is always a classic and always hilarious. Our family is full of sport fisher-men and women. I actually fish all spring and summer long with my Husband in various Walleye Tournaments…..so naturally I am just totally drawn to this set.


I went ahead and colored good old Gus up with my Copics and went with a nice and clean design using the Journey Collection of papers from Autentique. The sponging has been done using Old Paper Distress Ink and I finished it all off by adding a sentiment from the Bubble Bath Scarlett set that is available over at 

So I encourage you to participate in the Blog Hop and check out all of the wonderful and inspiring creations that both the Bugaboo Design Team and the Totally Stampalicious Design Team have created for this special Birthday Hop! And be sure to leave some love at every stop along the way as you will have a chance to win on every blog.......including mine J   Courtesy of Bugaboo Stamps
