Blog Hoppin' with New Friends!

Welcome to our Social [Media] Butterflies blog hop!

Hi Everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I'm Kristin (or rukristin or K -- whatever strikes your fancy). I'm super excited to be joining this great group of ladies in this new monthly adventure. 

Each month on the 29th day, we're going to be sharing projects that have been inspired via each other and the various social media tools that we're all using. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Message boards -- they all have a place in the online scrapping community; and we're going to be using them to their full potential.

From Shay: 
Want to join in? Scraplift any of the projects you see, come back here and link up the project to this main post. You never know what prizes might be handed out along the way :]  Want more chances? Tweet about the blog hop, tell us your favorite project using the hashtag #SMBiGbloghop Comment [on shay's blog] and let me know which of these things you've done & you can win a $25 store credit to Persnickety Prints. 
Today I'm sharing a project that was inspired by the awesome MonicaB. Monica has a brand new etsy shop: Dinky Doodle Designs, and while I was checking out her new shop, I ran across some awesome washi tape samples and knew I needed to scrap about my washi addiction. 

I used my silhouette machine to cut out the rectangular background, and some pop dots to raise it off the bottom page. Under a couple of the rectangles I used some of my new Freckled Fawn washi tapes to add pops of color.  

A few looks at the dimensionality (is that a word) of the layout. I tied some jute around a few of the rectangles and finished it off with a bow. 

And another look at the entire layout. 

I'll be giving away a great little chipboard/acrylic prize pack to a random blog commenter, gain extra entries for following on twitter, or liking my facebook page. Just come back here and comment that you've done so! (and please leave an email address or way to get in contact with you). 

Now on to the rest of the amazing inspiration!
