October Afternoon Cakewalk Blog Hop!

Welcome to the October Afternoon Cakewalk blog hop! If you get lost along the way the list of  designer's blogs to visit is on the October Afternoon blog, as well as below. 

This collection is perfect for all sorts of celebrations, in a mix of pastels & brights, and with that October Afternoon vintage twist we all love.

One of my favorite papers in this collection is Guest List:
You can get so many cute cards out of this one sheet! Here's just one example:

When there is an image, such as the cowgirl here, I love to see if I can play up or embellish it in someway. Here, I cut the tinniest slit on each side of her hand so I could pull the little jute string through to create a lasso of sorts. The "celebrate" title is a section of the Cakewalk Celebrate washi torn so only that word shows. Makes for a perfect, quick title!

How about a chance to win some Cakewalk Flower Sack?
Just leave a comment on the blog and I will announce a winner May 9th.  Also, be sure and comment on them all because we each have a prize to giveaway, including the grand prize of a Cakewalk Collection Kit on the October Afternoon blog
Next on the hop is Vivian Masket at Right Side Up!
