Whimsical Twist Summer Blog Hop and GIVEAWAYS!!!



Welcome to Whimsical Twist's first challenge! We thought it would be a lot of fun to also have a Blog Hop to celebrate our first challenge! How does that sound? During the Hop you will be visiting blogs from several of our fabulous design team members. You will find so much inspiration on the way, that your head might explode! The hop will start at the Whimsical Twist blog and end at Lisa Wilkinson's blog. If you are just joining in, be sure to go to the Whimsical Twist blog to start. If you get lost along the way, just look at the list below to get you hopping in the right direction. And you can't have a Blog Hop without giveaways and this one is no different! In order to be entered into the giveaways, you will need to be sure you leave a comment on each blog on the hop. Whimsical Twist will also be giving away a $15 gift certificate to the shop to one random hopper! We will be announcing the winners of our giveaways on August 12th, so be sure to watch for the announcements. Without further ado, let's get this celebration started! Our first challenge is inspired by summer!
 
For my project, I was inspired by the rainbow of colors in the mood board. I loved the fun, bright colors and how well they all looked together. Here is the layout I made for our "summer themed" challenge:
 
 
I used lots of items from Crate Paper "The Pier" on this layout, along with some Elle's Studio, American Crafts, Studio Calico, and Pink Paislee.
 
I have linked up some of the items that I used in the Whimsical Twist store for you below!
 
Now you are off to Ashley's blog, but if you get lost along the way here is the hopping order for you.

Make sure you go to everyone's blog and leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway for a $15 gift certificate to the Whimsical Twist store.
 
I am also giving away some goodies, to be entered in my giveaway, simply become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me something that inspires you from our moodboard!
 
Have fun hopping, and take time today to create something you love!

Amanda, I really like your layout using the colors from the inspiration . I am really digging the various frame use! I like the colors from the inspiration board that I personally associate with summer-the blues, turquoise, yellow and a splash of red and green. This is exciting to be a part of Whimsical Twist and their very first blog hop!
