Paper Issues Blog Hop!

 Hola party peeeeeople!  How's everyone doing this fine Friday morning?  What better way to start of the weekend than with a not-so-little, ok MASSIVE, PAPER ISSUES "Tree Huggin'" blog hop?!  That's right!  It's a blog hop full of fun, inspiration, and give aways!  

How can it get any better than that?!  It can!  For this blog hop (which means ALL gosh dern weekend) you can save an EXTRA 25% in the Paper Issues store!  Holy mega-discount, Batman!  

Should you choose to partake in the awesomely awesome Paper Issues sale, you will need a handy dandy coupon code.  Oh, but my pretties, you will find the coupon code at the END of this post!  Ok.  Fine.  Twist my arm.  To enjoy the 25% off in the Paper Issues store, use coupon code "HOP25" at checkout. 

I have a li'l sumpin' sumpin' to give away myself!  I gotta getcha readin' my blog post somehow and I am not above a little bribery...or as I call it, leverage.  MUAHAHAHAHA!

Now for the business at hand.  You should've arrived here at my li'l bloggity blog from Wendy's blog.  If not, then you can check the pecking order and get your bearings from my list below or you can find the master list at Paper Issues

For my project for this awesome hoppity hop, I put together another back pocket mini.  I thought the upcycling was perfect for the "tree hugger" theme.  I also decided to use some papers I've had in my stash for a while and rummage through my scraps drawer.  While making this mini, I plowed through what was left of my Pink Paislee "Daily Junque" and Websters Pages "Trendsetter" lines.  Pffffft.  Who says you can't breathe some life into old stuff?  Pish posh I say!
 
 I hacked a couple pairs of old jeans that were too worn out to donate and came up with this mini especially for this hop.  What can I say?  I like to stay in touch with my inner tree hugger.  


 Yup.  That's me and my brood plus one of their friends.  We had an outing at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach this past summer.  



This is my crazy and fun friend, Michelle.  Even grown ups have to play every now and then!


Same day, same outing.  After visiting all of the wonderful sea life at the aquarium, we decided that lunch at Bubba Gump's Shrimp was more than appropriate!  LOL!

And there you have it.  Short, sweet, and to the point.  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose into total FABULOUSNESS!  

Since you stuck around and read my blog this far, here's where YOU get to cash in.  I am giving a way a prize package of some BRAND NEW papers and a few other delectable goodies to go along with it.
