Taylored Expressions May Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!

Hello! I'm excited to be participating in the May Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylor invites her customers to participate in this fun hop and feature Taylored Expressions Stamps! The theme for our hop is Make it Masculine.

If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!

If you've visited my blog before, you know that I don't really do a lot of masculine.. but this is about as masculine as it gets for me.. :) I used the TE stamp set, Boys Will Be Boys (tie and sentiments). I pieced two of the ties and colored the center one with Copic markers. I also added some distressing all around. The brackets around "Happy Father's Day" are American Crafts fabric Thickers that were originally white.

All other supplies (patterned paper, cardstock, buttons and bracket stickers) are from the Taylored Expressions May Key Ingredients kit. If you are unfamiliar with these kits, you can learn all about them on the Key Ingredients blog, HERE.

I used Sankari's fun sketch for my layout:

Thanks so much for hopping by!
