Woo Hoo! Welcome to the first Heidi Swapp Mash-Up Blog Hop!

What's a "Mash-Up" you ask?

The definition of a Mash-Up (according to the Urban Dictionary) is...
 "v. To take elements of two or more pre-existing pieces of music and combine them to make a new song. n. A song comprised of elements of two or more..."

A Heidi Swapp Mash-Up is taking elements from two or more collections and combining them to make something fabulous! 

So here's what happened...each of Heidi's Media Team members was asked to name two Heidi Swapp products to add to a "Mash-Up List." Then, each team member took the full list and used those products (and more!) to create her first Mash-Up project!

Here's what each had to work with...the Mash-Up List...

*At least 1 Day Glow Photo Corner
*Sentiment Stickers
*Color Magic Paper
*Note Card (either Vintage Chic or Color Magic Notes)
*Buzz Words
*Color Magic Chipboard Alphas
*At least 2 pattern papers from different Heidi Swapp Collections
*Neon Glow Tape
*Handwriting - either your own or Heidi's digital words

Sounds cool, huh? Wanna see my project? Well here it is...

(...let me start by saying that, for some reason, my scanner did not want to capture the colors on this layout completely correctly...those photo corners look purple and it drives me crazy...you can see the real colors in the photos below...)

I absolutely ADORED participating in this challenge...and, I have to say, this layout came together incredibly easily. I used elements from the Vintage Chic collection primarily...the colors are just "me." BUT, I actually love the pop of neon pink from the PHOTO CORNERS and the DAY GLOW TAPE.

I love love love the COLOR MAGIC CHIPBOARD ALPHAS...I'm so glad we got to use them here! 

And for the HANDWRITING...I used my own...

The "DRAMA" sentiment was from the infostrip along the bottom of a sheet of Sugar Chic paper...I used some STAPLES to attach it.
And the SENTIMENT STICKER "that face" is just perfect for this photo...

I tucked in some COLOR MAGIC PAPER (misted with Mint Green Color Shine) behind my photo, and I added the BUZZ WORD "always"...

I cut some Heidi Swapp Digital Banner Delights out of different sheets of Vintage Chic paper and attached a Vintage Chic NOTE CARD (along with the banners) to the top of my layout. I simply sewed these down...

Some Day Glow Neon Tape in pink along the top of the page makes the layout a little more cohesive. (I also added a small strip of both the pink and green tape to the bottom corner of the page).

So...what do you think? Did I do OK?
