Riley January 2011 Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the first Riley and Company Blog Hop of 2011! Make sure to drop by each of the Designers Blogs, leave a comment and you'll have a chance to win some awesome blog candy, plus you get some fabulous inspiration! Each Designer will draw one lucky commentors name to win an unmounted Riley of their choice. You have until Friday January 21, 10pm est!

All the new stamps are available now at Riley and Company!

Above is the new Balloon Riley, and I also used one of the new sentiments!

Riley is coloured with copics, then I cut out him and his balloons. I created a scene in the background by sponging on clouds and green hills. Then I used the Carrying Tree Riley, well just his tree! I stamped it 5 times onto a scrap of dp and cut out all 5 trees! The fence is popped up on tiny little pop dots. I stamped Riley onto the scene I created, then glued on the Riley & Balloons I had coloured & cut out.

And this is the new Baseball Riley!

I coloured Riley with copics and added some strips to his shirt.

I decided to make a treat holder for these little chocolate baseballs. The base is pacific point, and I used dp from SU welcome neighbour pad to help create the scene.

Here's a picture of the side, and the little handles were made with some white raffia!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and I really appreciate the comments and feedback! Now if you leave a comment on this post, you have a chance to win a Riley of your choice!

Riley floating in the sky with balloons seems to capture his essence. What a fun scene! I think Riley really needs his own TV show. He has so much personality!
