Welcome to Gill's blog hop for Tartan Day. The Hop starts at Gill's Blog Here. If you've come from Faith's Blog, your hopping in the right direction, if you've just stumbled here be sure to start at the beginning.
The theme of this hop is Tartan Day and here's a link to read up on what it is all about what we are doing on this hop is bringing together a select few people from all over the world to take part and for them to create a project with an element of tartan on it.
This is a hop with a difference as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters but if you gather all the letters then at the end of the hop assemble them to create a "scottish themed word". If you then return to Gill's blog and enter the Mr Linky at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop Gill will contact someone at random and ask them to email her with the word - if correct they win some lovely candy.
For my project, I have created an acrylic projects for this hop.I made this for my mom. I thought this was a great way to give her a good memory of my step-dad who had Scottish heritage. He was an angel from the heavens! He was so great to my mom and for my mom. He was taken too early and we all miss him dearly. My mom doesn't have many pictures of Curt or of them together. I found this picture of them dancing at my wedding. The project just fell together. The papers i swear just jumped out at me and i knew what I was going to do. It was a matter of finding a rose i could easily cut using MTC. Which you can find below for FREE in both MTC & SVF File format. I cut the rose peices out of plaid papers.
I used CTMH Plaid papers from several retired collections. CTMH Irresitable Chipboard, and Chipboard hearts. Check out my CTMH Website HERE.
