Layton's Legacy Blog Hop and Fundraiser

Hi there! Welcome to my stop of Layton's Legacy Blog Hop & Fundraiser! What a beautiful way to commemorate this sweet little guy, don't you think?! 

There is an entire group of papercrafters and generous sponsor's who are making a difference! 

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! {You can also see all the prizes HERE.}

My card was inspired by Layton's Nursery Mood Board:

I chose my color's from those cute forest critters, and because this card is being sent to the card drive to be included in the gift card to be handed to a NICU  parent. 

The sentiment is from Hero Arts in collaboration with Simon Says Stamp.

The sweet balloons, clouds and sun are from Catherine Pooler's Box from February.

Now on to the blog hop info - here is a link list with all of the stops along the hop! Please be sure to leave some love for the thoughtfulness & generosity that these companies, stores & designers have shown for this Card Drive & Fundraising effort.
