Hi All!  I'm Kim.  Welcome to my blog!  If you are hopping in order, you should have arrived here from Daniella Hayes' Blog.  

 I created a page for my Florida vacation album using Bombshell Angel by Bombshell Stamps and Altered Pages "State of Florida" Collage Sheet.  The cardstock and bling are by Webster's Pages.  I used the Bombshell Stamps August Sketch to create this page.  Bombshell Angel was inked with Tsukineko Memento ink and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

 

I also created a wooden keepsake box.  
 The box has been in my craft stash for a while and was begging to be used.  I painted it with light brown acrylic paint and added a few coats of vintage white acrylic paint.  Then I sanded it around the edges and a few other areas to give it a little bit of a distressed look.  The Greetings from Florida postcard on top of the box is from the "State of Florida" collage sheet by Altered Pages and was printed out on Silhouette's Printable Cotton Canvas (I love this stuff!).  I added a few flowers from Bombshell Stamps "Hula Girl" Stamp Set to the corners.
The stamp shapes are svg's from "Stamp Set" by Lori Whitlock.  I cut them out of white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and then colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.  The manatee and flamingo pics are from the State of Florida collage sheet.  The shell stamp is from Hawaiian Girl and Bombshell Banner is the Handmade by Banner stamp.
 This turtle stamp is also from the Hawaiian Girl Stamp Set, and the flowers are from the State of Florida Collage Sheet.
The anchor and stars are from the Ahoy Sailor Stamp Set, and the sunset is from the collage sheet.  All of the stamps were colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.

Your next stop on the hop is Becky Voth's Blog!  

Thanks for hopping with us! 
Happy Hopping!

    I FREAKIN' LOVE both projects! The use of the map, row of flamingoes, and Bombshell Angel is perfect and that box is just beyond fabulous! I love everything about it, but especially the way you integrated the stamps with the digi collage images.
