Charlie Brown and the Gang

Welcome to Charlie Brown and the Gang Blog Hop. Charlie Brown and his gang are out to play with us today whether it be baseball, holding the football or just hangin' out. Don't forget that Snoopy has to get the Red Baron and not fall behind the enemy lines. Also, you may want to stop off at Lucy's booth to have a second opinion.

There are so many characters to depict here and we all have our favorites. With this in mind, we will be setting up scenes whether it be a lay-out, card, decorative piece but rest assured, you will be seeing Charles Schultz characters being showcased. Kari's son Josh, loves Charlie Brown with his favorite character being Snoopy and its his 18th birthday. Be sure to wish Josh a Happy Birthday on Kari's Blog.
Now, if you just happened to be visiting me, I'm thrilled and glad to show you my project BUT I would love for you to start at the beginning of our story and that is with Kari . Now, if you arrived from  Colleen then you are on the correct base on the baseball field.

We have a terrific All-Star group of sponsors:
  • Lynne Kirsch - chipboard figures of Charlie Brown and the Gang
  • Shannon Leffew Keith offering flowers from her etsy shop
  • Colleen Duffy Hathaway is offering a paper pieced set of your choice from Scraptastical Kreations (

For my project I made a layout of my Snoopy phone. 

My love of Snoopy started with a TV commercial in 1979. This was at the time when phones came in desk, wall and princess styles and were rented from the phone company. So when I saw this phone advertised I mentioned that it would be cool to own. Imagine my surprise when I received this phone from my husband for Christmas. (Seems he was listening when I talked). I still receive Snoopy items for Christmas, and this past year got a plush Snoopy, note cards and 3 Snoopy journals.

Bought the Charlie Brown paper years ago. I used the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. Cardstock from my stash, flowers are Prima, butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. 

Your next stop with Charlie Brown and the Gang is Lynne and be sure not to let Lucy you with that line "I'll hold the football" !

Here's the entire lineup:
