Joy's Life: Cri-Kits Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Create with Joy's Life Stamps 
and Cri-Kits Gel Pens Hop!!
You came here from Amy's Blog but if you happened to stumble across my blog go to Joy's Blog to start.

I honestly can't tell you how much I LOVE the Cri-Kits Pens!!! They are way cool!!
For my project I did a Smash Book Page on my Smithsonians/DC Book.

The first page is a photo I took at the Air and Space Museum.  

This page... Oh man this page!!! I made it with my Gypsy and the Cri-Kits!! I made my own little version of La Minerve. I used the Black Pen from the Regular and Neon Set. I used these cartridges: George and Basic Shapes, Indie Art, Home Decor, Christmas, April Showers and Paper Dolls Dress Up. 

I stamped Bon Voyage on a Ribbon from 
May Arts and I LOVE how it turned out!! 
The sentiment is from the set Pun In The Sun.

I used the Square Epiphany Crafts Tool 
and part of photo to make this mosaic. 

This info was at the exhibit. 

Of course I have a little bribe!! I am giving away a My Mind's Eye Lush 2 Turquoise Flocked Chipboard Album!! Wow that is a long name!! All you need to do is be a follower and leave a comment telling me if you have tried the Smash Book.
For an extra entry like my Earthy Scrap Facebook page 
and leave me a comment there. 
If you already liked it just leave a comment there :0)
I hope you are enjoying this awesome hop!!
Your next stop is Patty's Blog!!

One word comes to mind...WHOA! Wait, no...WOW! Hold on...AMAZING! That's close to some of the reaction I had to the detailed beauty you've created. I'm so impressed that I can't even find the right words to convey it. I am stunned by the drawing you created with your Gypsy. It is as if Da Vinci dropped by the blog hop. Thank you so much for being part of the hop and for creating this amazing work of art.
Super Hugs,
