Can I start out by saying that I just love, love, love Clearsnap products!  So when I was told we would be partnering with Clearsnap, I was ecstatic!  I was even more ecstatic when I got the supplies.

See those fabulous goodies!! I love the Cat's Eye Fluid Chalk Queue in Chocolate and Blueberries, Smooch Spritz in Ice Rink and Green Olive, and Smooch in Snickerdoodle, Grape Soda, Taffy, and Pool.  I have never tried the Smooch line so seeing them in my box made me happy and a little intimidated.

After drooling over these fabulous products, I tossed around a few ideas, but was still coming up empty.  As I sat with my husband discussing our summer activity to-do list, I had the brilliant idea of displaying that last so the whole family could see.

The inks and Smooches were a perfect compliment to Trinity Paper Arts Surf N' Swim collection and it made the whole project come together so fast.

The Smooch Spritz in Ice Rink was so easily to use and gave the Lei "B" paper a great shimmer.

I loved using the Snickerdoodle Smooch to add some shimmer to the sand waves on Under the Sea "B". The Pool Smooch was great to highlight the light blue flowers from Lei "A".

I am an ink-a-holic and use it on pretty much everything.  I love the Clearsnap inks and just about all of my inks are the Fluid Chalk Inks.  What is my favorite thing about their inks? I love the Fluid Chalk inks because they will ink most things and dry super quick.  I am always smudging my ink because I don't have the patience to wait, but the Fluid Chalk Ink solves that problem.

I love all the products I had the chance to try and am grateful for Clearsnaps generosity in letting me play.
