Scrapbook Circle Blog Hop and PageMaps!

Welcome to our Scrapbook Circle Blog Hop! Scrapbook Circle has a new creative team, as well as a fabulous August kit, and we'd like to introduce you to both. You could win one of five August kits by commenting as you hop from blog to blog, meeting faces new and old to Scrapbook Circle.  

Okay, if you have just left Mona'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.

let me start off by introducing myself, my name is Diana Waite.  I have been blessed to be with Scrapbook Circle for close to 7 years, crazy how time flies!  I started out as an altered project design team member and worked myself into my currently role as a design team member who works with regular monthly kits.  I obviously LOVE it!  
I LOVE anything to do with Wonder Woman, my prized WW possession? A bobble head my dad bought me--she sits on my sewing machine and bobbles while I sew--makes me giggle! ;)
I'm a wife to my best friend of over 17 years and have three very active kids!  I spend A LOT of time at the soccer & Lacrosse fields, and track with my camera in tow--I LOVE it and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

I'm SO excited for you to come visit me on the Scrapbook Circle blog hop--welcome!  I was asked to work with this AWESOME PageMaps sketch:
This is how I was inspired using the Scrapbook Circle August kit, Island Paradise :
I wanted to spice up the background a bit so I cut the matted creme color paper just smaller than the 8 1/2 x 11 size.  Then I cut that piece into 4 different pieces and sewed them down and painted on them with watercolor paint and dropped mist on the background.  

For my sun I painted with yellow, orange and gold mist--it's quite sunny.  This particular cut is a Scrapbook Circle Exclusive and can be found in the shop HERE.
  (I used the negative piece of the cut covering up the work summer that was partially cut into it)

So if you haven't started hopping at the beginning of the hop here is the COMPLETE list to start from the beginning.  REMEMBER that the winners will be chosen RANDOMLY from among the comments left on ALL the blogs:

Sara 
Mona 
Diana W--this is me!
Lisa 

Hop ends Monday, August 4th at 9:00 p.m. Pacific--GOOD luck and thanks for hopping!
