There are two sketches you can use for the hop. Here they are:

Here's my LO using the second sketch.

I had SO much fun working on this page!! I scrapped pictures from the day I spent taking classes with Tim Holtz. That was a great day! The multiple squares on the sketch inspired me to use the many pictures I had from that day. I used different techniques on the other squares in the grid. I pulled out my "Compendium of Curiosities" (that I had Tim sign that day! ;) and just played with my distress inks, crackle paint, acrylic paint, alcohol inks, glimmer mists, distress stickles, masks and stamps! The techniques are really well explained in the book and it was so much fun to play around with all those products. I really hadn't been using my distress inks to their potential! Everything in the LO has been altered one way or another. The background is embossed CS, but all the rest is smooth white CS that I inked or painted. There is no patterned paper at all in this LO, which is very unusual for me! The flower at the bottom is a white prima rose that I inked and misted.

I hope you give these sketches a try! As an added bonus, I'll be randomly giving out a RAK to one lucky winner. (I'm sorry I don't have a picture of the RAK yet... I'm on vacation right now and didn't get the chance to do that before I left...) Leave a comment here and you will get one entry. If you make a LO using one of the sketches, link it on the main blog, and let me know by leaving another comment here, you will get a second entry. You'll get a third entry by completing the other sketch. You don't have to become a follower to win, but if you like what you see, I'd love to have you follow me!

Happy scrapping and good luck!
