Riley and Company challenge Time

Riley and Company has a challenge today from Cindy.
It is a Party theme card or project for a child's Birthday.

Here is my project - a clown theme door hanger
that says Happy Birthday.  Thought it would
be cute to have something to hang on their doorknob
to find on the morning of their birthday.

The Clown Riley stamp is
from the new release - Riley
Goes to the Circus.  You can see
them all here.
Please join us in this challenge.
Post your ideas at Splitcoast Stampers
with the keyword of Riley1111 or post
a link here in the comments.
Be sure and see what all the other Design
Team members come up with for the challenge!

The Riley Goes to the Circus Blog Hop!

Ladies and Gentlemen let us present to you this fine evening
the release of Riley Goes to the Circus!

The hop starts HERE.  I am stop 11 so please be sure
you start at the beginning.  What a wonderful treat this is
tonight.  It is the first hop for our new Design Team
and they have been amazing this week! 

Be sure you leave a comment at each stop to maybe
win an unmounted stamp of your choice from the new
release.  Check back this weekend on the first stop
to see the winners list and send in your email address.

I know last time I encountered trouble
with not being able to see my winner's email address
on her blog.  So please check back!

Now back to the story. 
(If you missed the beginning it starts here.)


I had a bit of an issue as I finished this up today.
If you remember from this last fall I have this bossy muse
that shows up and insists on being in everything.
Well he showed up again.... and yes he insisted on being
in the book.  See if you can spot him.  HINT - his initials
are VR.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy story writing with this
wonderful set of stamps.
You can find the whole collection for sale right here.

Remember ... Life is a circus don't "moose" a minute of it!

Next stop is Michele!


Riley Goes to the Circus Part 2

Back to the story! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure and come back Tonight
(Thursday) at 9 PM Central for our blog hop and the
end of Riley Goes to the Circus.

Riley Goes to the Circus Part 1

Sorry I have been absent!
You see I had this marvelous idea to do one big project
 this release instead of all the small sneak peeks.
 Well as I have been working along
I realized there is no way this is fitting in one post
Thursday night. So here goes....

Riley and Company stamps are such smile bringers.
 Each Riley or Sophie image brings a slice of life
to mind or takes you on a whimsical adventure.
As your collection builds
you start realizing the story they tell.

As I looked at the previews the Design Team got this
month, Riley Goes to The Circus, a story for kids of all ages
was born. LOL!
What I hope you take away from this is not my kooky
story writing but the idea that you can tell stories with Riley stamps.
Better yet have a fun afternoon stamping with your kids or grand kids.

Craft together. Let your imaginations soar.

Be sure and tell us what Riley and Sophie adventures
you come up with.  Just email a pic to the
Riley and Company email address at the bottom of
the page here.
We would love to feature it on the blog!

Riley Goes to the Circus:

Part 2 tomorrow!  Be sure and visit
all the other Design Team members for
more ideas!

A few design notes -

This month you will see a new stamp collection.
The little accessories! Oh how I love these.
See if you can spot them in my project.

I also have found Riley and Cricut go together very well.
I used the Cricut Lite Carousel cartridge
for the background items  in my book.

An 8" by 8"' scrapbook makes the perfect storybook.
