I Love Lucy Blog Hop

Good Morning my Friends!
So excited you have joined us for this fun blog hop!! You should have arrived from the super talented Kich.  If you just happened to arrive here and would like to start from the beginning, then click Here to start at the beginning with Abby.
Thank you Abby for putting together this hop honoring the super amazing "Lucy."  She is hosting this hop because she is a crazy fanatic of "I Love Lucy." I don't blame her. This wonderful red-haired lady was so funny and wild.  You can't help but laugh out loud when you watch her show.  Here is a little clip of the episode that I was assigned...




So this clip was my inspiration for my project:


I tried to incorporate some of the Hollywood glitz and glamour.
I made this digital layout using Photoshop Elements.  As most of you know, I love digital layouts. 
Truly my first love!! So whenever I get a chance to make one, I jump at it!!
My younger sister is also a huge Lucy fan.  I always tell her she was born in the wrong era. lol 
I am going to frame the l.o. and give to her as
a gift.  She can add it to all of her memorabilia. 


This digital page kit is from Scrap Matters-Unforgettable.  
I just love the beautiful papers and the gorgeous elements!!


The headline was made with Everyday Metal Alphabet and Chimney Sweep Alphabet,
both from Scrap Matters. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project.  Maybe some of you have been inspired to try a digital layout if you haven't yet!!  

Here is a list of the goodies Abby is giving away on her blog, Scrapbookaholic by Abby.
SEI PAPER 6X6 COLLECTION
SEI RIBBON ASSORTMENT
STICKER ASSORTMENT
FLOWER ASSORTMENT PACK
ELMER'S GLUE
I LOVE LUCY DOLL!!!
ITALIAN CHARM BRACELET WITH I LOVE LUCY CHARMS!!


So make sure you hop over to her and get all the details!
Your next stop is the super sweet Jennifer.  Before you go, I have some yummy candy for you as well:


I will pick a winner next Friday 3/18 using Random.org.  To enter:

  8. Wonderful layout. I wish I could figure out how to go digi. I have photoshop elements 9 but have yet been able to figure out how to do digi layouts with it.

    I just stumbled across this hop & had to visit since I love Lucy too! I have a beautiful photo stamp of her that I love to use when making cards. I also have a collection of 100 different tv cards from her show that are great for cardmaking too. I have a few of her tv dvd's & movies. I loved her "Your's, Mine & Ours" & "The Long, Long Trailer" movies. They are still funny today. I'm a new follower too. TFS!

  21. I've been so excited about this blog hop.... why???? because I am from Jamestown, NY the birth place of Lucille Ball!

    We all have grandparent stories around this area with Lucy. My Grandpa Rhodes lived next door to Lucy when they were kids. She was same age as my Uncle Cecil and he, Grandpa and Lucy would walk to Washington Jr. HS together. They all lived on 23rd St.

    Great hop!
