TE Blog Hop From the Past!

Hi there everyone!  Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Blog Hop From the Past where we are featuring any Taylored Expressions stamps from the past (2008 ~ March 2010).  There are many talented people joining us in the hop today so I hope you'll take the time to hop around!  You'll find the link list at the bottom of my post.


I used a set from the Whimsical Wishes line that needed some serious love, Chillax!  The sketch is this week's CPS sketch #172.  The margarita was colored with Copic markers.  I added some Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter around the rim of the glass to mimic salt....I'm not much of a drinker, but I do like a nice margarita every once in awhile and it must have salt!  Anywho...the dp is Basic Grey Origins and goes perfectly with this set, in my opinion!!  Very citrusy!!

That's all from me today!  I'm off to get a nice highlight and haircut!  As soon as I get back I'll be hopping around to see what everyone made!
