SP Blog Hop

I'm part of several blog hops today! This post is for the SP & Company stamps hop. Click here for the Scrapbook Steals hop. And the Unity Friends with Flair hop is still going on. There are prizes on each one so please hop!!
********************************************************************

Hi! Thanks for staying on the hop this far! I hope you've been inspired by all the projects so far.

This month's color is Green in honor of St. Patrick's Day! After you're done hopping around today, make sure you play along with this month's Green challenge (click here for details) for a chance to win some awesome SP and Company prizes!

Join us for our Release Celebration that is happening today and tomorrow on the SP Forum HERE.  You can talk to all of the designers, discuss projects and chit chat with other stampers!

Don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog to be eligible for the prizes!! The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning something fun!


So here's what I came up with using the new All Zipped Up set:

 I know a certain little boy turning 8 so I thought he might enjoy this!

I stamped the background in green using the Large Polka Dots background stamp. The papers are from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes 6x6 collection. I stamped the really cute pocket onto blue stripe, fussy cut it, then adhered it onto that diagonal green striped paper making sure to only put tape on the sides and bottom so that I could stick the money in it. 
 Then I just added the cute little sentiment and that was it!

Make sure you check out the SP Blog to see what Samantha did with the new stamps! We also have the Stamp Team and the Challenge Team teaming up today to show you lots of amazing projects with the newest stamp sets!
