Dream Team Blog Hop of the Month

Its that time of the month when the Mo’s Dream Team come together and do a special project to give you a little inspiration and hopefully some Oooo’s and Awes along the way.

This Months theme for the Blog Hop is Summer Tones and Pops is our host and that is where the blog hop begins.

 blog hop August

I couldn’t resist using Kai in the Sand from Mo’s Digital Pencil  for my image this month as our two girls simply loved the seaside when they were little and this is such an adorable image.

Coloured with Copic markers and Prisma pencils and the gorgeous ribbon is 5/8 two toned Grosgrain from Ribbon Carousel
