Layton's Legacy Card Drive & Fundraiser Blog Hop


I am so honored to be part of today's  Card Drive & Fundraiser blog hop. This hop was put together by Lea Lawson who lost her beautiful little boy named Layton on Nov. 17, 2016.


You can read Lea's whole story HERE.

Today, we have a huge Card Drive blog hop going on in Layton's honor, with tons of amazing inspiration! We also have a fundraising effort, where every $5 donated gets you an entry into the prize drawing. There are over $2000 in prizes, sponsored by some of the most amazing stamping & papercrafting companies in the industry!

Visit the fundraising site HERE to make your donation. Every little bit helps!

And look at all of these sponsors and prizes:




BLOG HOP
Not only is this a fundraiser, but also a super inspiring blog hop with MANY stops along the way! As you hop along, you will see beautiful cards created with a very special theme. Lea created this mood board when they started planning Layton's nursery. And the mood board is where we got our inspiration for our projects.


Here is the card that I created for today's hop. I focused on the woodland creatures and chose the Ocean Mist, Sweet Corn and Moonlit Fog color scheme. These are the closest colors from our Gina K. Designs brand.


I did a little woodgraining on the strip of my card and used a new background stamp coming to Gina K. Designs this Thursday night to create the yellow texture. I used the GKD stamp set called Bounty of Blessings to stamp the owl and greeting. I also added a little button with twine and colored the owl with Copic Markers.

Now on to the blog hop info. On your first stop at Lea's blog, you will see other ways to help including making cards for the card drive and so much more. You can also share these posts using the hashtag #laytonslegacy

Thank you SO much for being part of Layton's Legacy Card Drive & Fundraiser. It's time to start hopping! Make it a great day! XO
