Clear Dollar Stamps January Blog Hop!! **New Beginings**

YAY! ITS BLOG HOP TIME!!

Hello Everyone and welcome to Clear Dollar Stamp's monthly Blog Hop!  Hopefully you have arrived here from Tricia's blog, but if not go ahead and head back to the begining of the hop at Lori's blog. Remember, a winner will be chosen from comments left throughout the hop, so leave lots of love for the dt!

Our first blog hop to bring in the new year was such a success, we decided to make it a regular thing!  (yay!) On the 3rd Sunday of every month, come join in on the fun and maybe win a prize! What prize? Your choice of stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps! Good Luck!

For this month, our theme is "New Beginings" which is perfect for the new year. For my example, I chose the January new release "Baby Bundle". I grabbed a journal from my stash of clearance items to alter and go to work.


My husband's CO's wife just had a baby, so I made this for her so she can journal all about all her little baby boy's firsts and doctor visits. I know I just adore looking back at how my baby boy has grown. (he is 7 now!) 
Thank you so much for joining in on this month's hop! Hope to see you again next month! Now your next stop is the very talented Laurie's blog who just happens to be the illustrator of this adorable stamp set I featured on my journal!  

Details:
Stamps: Baby Bundle
Paper: Unknown SU dp, Baja Breeze, Whisper White

Ink: Baja Breeze, CDS Hot Cocoa

Tools/Accessories: Labels 1 Nestabilities, Large Brads brown & white, Unknown Brown Ribbon, Misc Journal
