Good Monday Morning, lovelies! By the time this post goes live, I should be shoeless, with my hands above my head, being (hopefully quickly) scanned through airport security. Longtime readers will recall that my youngest son, Carter (now a big boy of eight and soon to be in 3rd grade) had a major series of surgeries in April of 2012. This week, we are headed back to St. Paul to have another gait analysis and to have the hardware that was inserted during the initial surgeries removed. Though we'll be gone from Monday through Friday (provided the post-op pain management goes well, which, with Carter, it usually does; the kid is tough as nails), we only have to stay in the hospital one night. Please keep my little man in your prayers.
Moving right along...
No matter what kind of paper crafting you prefer, regardless of style or structure, there's one supply all of us need in addition to paper, itself: ADHESIVE. And we aren't talking rubber cement, glue sticks or Elmer's. Nope, we rely on a strong bond that not only keeps our projects together, but also enhances their appearance by adding depth and dimension. Fortunately, there are Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Today and tomorrow, several design team members from Taylored Expressions and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L are participating in joint blog hops to show you just what you can do when you combine products from these two great companies. I've used the newest Mojo Monday sketch as my blueprint:

I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L's 3D Foam Squares under the gnomes to pop them up, and also under the red 'gnome' in the sentiment. The blue and red background layers utilize SA by 3L's Thin 3-D Foam Squares (which are about half the thickness of the 3-D Foam Squares) for a little added lift and variety.
I secured the ribbon with the use of a single 3-D Dodz cut in half, like so:
