Repeat Impressions' Summer Stamps Blog Hop!

We are having a Repeat Impressions Blog Hop to celebrate the fun new summer stamps that Wendy has released!  I used this cute little clothesline image (9017-M Summer Clothesline) and paired it with the Happy Summer (9003-E Happy Summer) sentiment.  Both images were cut out using Spellbinders' Labels Fourteen dies because they resembled the hourglass shape of the bathing suits in the background paper! 

The clothes on the clothesline are all paper pieced using some fun patterns from Jillibean Soup's Watermelon Gazpacho and BasicGrey's Sweet Threads 6x6 paper pads.  The stripes on the towel on the right were colored with a pink Spica pen and the centers of the flowers were colored using a yellow Spica pen.  I added a flower button from Crate Paper to my bow using some pink and green twine.
The rules for the hop are quite simple - visit each design team member's blog (links provided below) and collect a word from each of us.  Of course, while you're visiting, feel free to leave a comment to show the design team a little love!  My word is Impressions

After you collect all the words, you need to email Wendy( with all the words to be eligible for the blog candy. And if you can use all the words to create the correct phrase, you will have earned two chances for the blog candy! You must complete the hop and email all the words and/or the phrase to Wendy no later than 8pm EST on Tuesday, 7/19. The blog candy for this hop... an unmounted sheet of the new Summer stamps, of course!   The winner will be announced next Wednesday, 7/20, over at The House That Stamps Built.

Here are links to all of my fellow design team members' blogs:
