Hip Hoppin' Summer style

Hello Hip Hoppers!!!! Today we are celebrating the July Kit of the Month . . .have you seen it yet!? Ironically it showed up in my mailbox yesterday - but I FORGOT TO CHECK THE MAIL!!!! (So at 9:30 last night when my husband came home with the mail, I was soooo irritated that I wasted all that time I could have been playing with it!) So for today, let me share a super fun project using Retro BBQ. Have I MENTIONED how much I love this stamp set!!!??
I paper pieced the lemonade glasses, and had fun with some Liquid Glass and lots of Stickles (as you can see more clearly in the close-up shot. It's really sparkly and shiny and I just LOVE the way it turned out!!! :)
(card goodies: stamps - Unity's Retro BBQ set, striped paper - October Afternoon, dotted paper - Sassafrass Lass, Liquid Glass - CTMH, ink - StazOn)


And now, without further ado, hop on to ***Jennifer***
