Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop–Life is Like a Wave…

TE blast blog hop

SCROLL DOWN FOR MY DOODLE PANTRY POST

Another Blast from the Past blog hop; this month our theme was Clean and Simple. Not too hard right? Ugh, I agonized over it! I don’t always but this one was tough. Of course, I was super busy so that was probably why. Once my brain is revved up, I have a hard time thinking CAS.

I’m afraid the colours aren’t super accurate, I am struggling with editing this week. The pink is Hibiscus Burst, the green background and in the sentiment is celery by SU! Every photo I’ve struggled with has had both pink and green in it so maybe that’s why?

Anyway, in case you can’t read the sentiment, it says, “Life is like a wave. You can’t change the way it breaks, but you can change the way you ride it.” The surf board was coloured with Copics and the bottom edge was cut with a PTI edge die.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

Enjoy, Rebecca
