LACY SUNSHINE'S ELEANOR AND PICKLES THROUGH THE YEARS BLOG HOP

Happy Thursday everyone and welcome to the Eleanor and Pickles Blog Hop presented by the Lacy Sunshine DT gals. Sit back, relax and enjoy your hopping experience:)
 

Late one night in June of 2012, Heather Valentin was on the phone with her best friend and was drawing, like many of us do when talking on the phone, and the result, the first Eleanor and Pickles image – Eleanor and Pickles Book of Spells. The first image of Eleanor by herself, was Eleanor Bookworm.

Now, 3 years later, Eleanor and Pickles make up the largest category of images created by Heather Valentin for Lacy Sunshine Stamps. Eleanor and Pickles along with various other character friends, like Tilly the dinosaur, have had many adventures over the past 3 years and Heather continues to draw new images of these delightful characters.

Over the next 2 days, the Lacy Sunshine DT gals will be celebrating Eleanor and Pickles 3rd Anniversary/Birthday with our Through The Years Blog Hop. Please come hop along with us to win some “Pickletastic” prizes and see some Heather’s favorite Eleanor and Pickles images. You can visit Lacy Sunshine Shoppe to view the entire range of images available for purchase.

The hop begins at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog and then follows the order below. Make sure you stop at every blog on the hop and leave a comment. Don’t forget to leave a comment at Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog too. Our prizes will be announced along with our New Challenge post on June 21st. Hope you enjoy the hop!!  **If for some reason a blog on the hop is missing its hop post, please skip it and continue on with the hop to the next stop so that you don't miss a chance at the fabulous prizes!**

Next stop is Barb











Return to Lacy Sunshine Blog for final stop.

My project for the hop features a brand new Eleanor and Pickles - "Eleanor and Pickles A Happy World."  This image was made at my request to represent love of mother Earth.  I colored this beauty with Copics and cut out with L'il Inker dies.  Sentiment, from SU, is cut with Lawn Fawn die and I think it fits the image so perfectly.  DP is from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I chose to do a flip card for this project.  The flowers are added are from my newest Wild Orchid Crafts purchase and bling is from Queen and Co.  I sure hope you like how it turned out.  Don't forget to leave me a comment and enjoy the rest of the hop!!
