Fred She Said Blog Hop

If you are looking for today's Pixie Dust Studio digital image freebie click HERE!

Welcome to our FOURTH "FRED SHE SAID" blog hop!!! If you just happened to drop by my blog and you are not aware of this wonderful event taking place, please go back to the "FRED SHE SAID" blog here and start your hop!

Along the way, please leave a comment on the blogs, follow the instructions at the end of the blog hop, at the Challenge blog, to make your entry and your name will go in for a drawing for a $20 Gift Certificate for the Fred She Said Store!

Here's the first part of my "Fred She Said" creation:




I started out with the Emma the Mermaid Coloured Set which came with a pre-coloured underwater background and several accessories. I re-sized my background to 6 inches in width and to make things really simple I resized the coloured sheet (included in the set) also to 6 inches so that all the images were resized at the same time. Then all I had to do was cut out the images and prep them for the background. My girls will definitely have fun creating their own scenes.

Here's what the background scene looks like when the accessories are added. If you want to really get more bang for your buck you can apply 2 way glue to the back of the accessory images or use removable tape so the images can be removed and applied again and again.




Here is a list of the blog hoppers in case you lose your way:
