Welcome to our Scrapbook Circle Blog Hop!
Scrapbook Circle has a new creative team, as well as a fabulous August kit, "Island Paradise"
and we'd like to introduce you to both. You could win one of five August kits by

If you just left new DT member Jamie's Blog, you are in the right place. If not, I hope
you'll join us for the entire hop by starting at the Scrapbook Circle blog, HERE.

I am Jenni Calma and am SO excited to continue on as a Design Team member for Scrapbook Circle
for another year.  I honestly believe they have the most versatile scrapbook kits available!
I can't wait to share another year of my creative perspective on the Blog with you.

The August kit consists of Island Paradise - Main kit,  the 'Tiki-Torch' Add-on,
and the 'Bungalow' Add-on.  How cute is that theme??  I used all three for this layout.

And how about this for new subscribers:

As part of the Blog Hop, I participated in the PageMaps e-blast/website update and used this sketch for my LO.
I think it is such a cute sketch and love the patterns and all the ways it could be interpreted!
You can find the link to the PageMaps post HERE!

After looking a the sketch and choosing these photos, I knew I wanted lots of color and flowers!
The diamond pane windows in the first photo looks almost navy in color,
so I used that paper from Basic Grey with the repeating diamond patterns.  

I used a couple of the chipboard frames from Crate Paper, as well as the other chipboard pieces from Basic Grey, all part of the Tiki Torch Add-on.  I stitched some of the chipboard letters from Basic Grey for part of my title.

My journaling is written on one of the Scrapbook Circle exclusive Tags.
I finished by embellishing with other pieces from the Add-ons, including flair from
American Crafts, Heidi Swapp stickers and the heart die cut from Elle's Studio.
