TCP Summer Release Blog Hop

Blog hops come when  Sneaky Peeks are over, the newest and fabbest stamps from the Cat's Pajamas are in the store just waiting for you to pick them up, or did you place your order last night?  I know I would have.
The blog hop is sort of a "blessing and a curse" sort of a thing.  We get to see more fabulous creation made with the new release but then it's really over.  No more sneaky peeks, no more new release, at least not for a little while.  Oh well...
If you've been hopping you should have arrived here from Cat Packer Jessie Rone's blog Can You Say Addicted to Stamps?  If you stopped by for other reasons,  you probably want to hop along so use this link for the Cat's Pajamas where you can find all the details and links. After you've finished up here the next stop on the hop is Kelly Hull's (you might know that wild crazy gal as KJ) Stampin' With a Dream.  Don't forget, if you lose your place just go back to the Cat's Pajamas, it's like going home.
I am thrilled that I was invited to participate in this hop with the ever so clever and talented Cat Pack and Swanky Stampers.  This release has great stamps and dies, so much fun to use. Miss Meowy, Alma, the Swankiest Stamper ever, is so generous  that I can't thank her enough for this experience.   
By the way, you can still participate in the Cat's Pajama's color challenge TCPTUES268 - Kraft, Rose and Vanilla.  Who knows, maybe you'll be the next swanky stamper and be invited to participate in the next release.

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "Strange and Wonderful"
ink - My Favorite Things "Black Licorice"
paper - Recollections "Itsy, Bitsy, Ditsy, Cherry Pie" patterned paper; Stampin' Up DSP Patterns Stax Neutrals pad; My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade", "Kraft" and "Primitive Cream" card stock
miscellaneous - copics; the Cat's Pajamas "Butterflies" and "Apron Border" Cut Ups dies; Spellbinder's Oval dies; bling; Divine Twine; Butterfly Twine; Viva Holo Iridescent 

Here's the challenges:
