It's HERE!!! The Peachy Keen Alumni Hop!!

THE BLOG HOP IS NOW CLOSED. 
A winner will be announced later today.
(Thank you to everyone for making it such a huge success)!


Oh this is just wonderful!
Back with my dear friends at Peachy Keen for this fabulous Blog Hop!

Our theme is
 'That's what friends are for'.

Here's my project.......


This shadowbox is only my second ever and I LOVE making them!
This is going to be given to my beautiful Grand daughter Teigan.
The box itself is a cutting file I got from Lori Whitlock.
It was just what I wanted for my idea for the hop.

 For my little 'alcoves', I used quite a few of the new stamps recently released by Peachy Keen.
  PKSC-04  April's stamp Club
 PK-65  'Garden Wheelies' , 
PK-564 'Team Work'
All the stamps were coloured with Copics.
Then I added two special photos taken when I was at the Peachy Mecca!!!
Here are the alcoves in close-up....







Happy days with wonderful friends!

Talking of friends!!! It's time to HOP!!
Here is you line-up of the ultra talented usual suspects! lol...
 If you came to me via Heidi, you are heading in the right direction.
If you just happened along and want to be part of the best hop in town, 
please start at the Peachy Keen Stamps blog.
(The first stop on the list).


Of course, no hop would be worth it's salt without PRIZES right!
We have prizes...with a twist!

Here's the gameplan...
Our very generous friends at Peachy Keen are offering three gift certificates as prizes for this hop.
Three of us along the hop will be giving away one $50, one $30, and one $20 gift certificate.
 In order for you to be eligible to win, you will need to leave a comment on every blog
AND end the hop with a comment on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog.
You need to comment on all the blogs for a chance to win,
 'coz which of us contains the prizes is a SECRET!
You have 2 days, so no pressure. 
Winners will be announced on Wednesday!


Your next blog along the way is the one and only Peachy Queen herself,
Kathy J

Have fun and good luck!!!
