And here's my 3rd monthly project for Zva Creative. I combined it with a "no patterned paper" challenge that is running over at Noel Mignon's. Zva Creative products used: green rhinestone flourish (CR-03CA-115), felt flowers (FL01CB114 and FL-01CB-116), pearls (PE-02CB-102), and gemstone brads (BRBK02CA101 and BRBK02CA102). Hamby - transparency and rub-ons. Making Memories - butterfly embellishment. Cosmo Cricket - mini alpha stickers. AC Thickers - glittered alphas. Tattered Angels - glimmer screen and Glimmermist (Lime Twist and Turquoise Blue). Had a blast creating this layout - so much fun! I sprayed the Lime Twist on the cardstock as my base colour. I then put the butterfly screen in position, and sprayed again with Turquoise Blue. Once it was dry, I added rub-ons in the desired positions. I then placed the transparency on top, sewed it all down, and finished decorating my layout as desired. I used various pieces from my different Noel Mignon kits to finish it off.

One winner from each of the 5 blogs will receive a Zva prize package worth $30.00. Yay! Congrats to our winners!
And here's a little inspiration to end the blog hop. I created this layout with the intention of using some white or pink pearl flourishes, but they got lost in the paper and design. So I opted for the black pearl flourishes instead, and it ended up being the perfect match. I created my border with a mask placed in the centre of the page, then spraying chalk glimmermist around the edges. Once it was dry I zig-zag stitched around the entire edge. I've cut up some Hambly screens and lots of Webster's pages to create the layout design. A Webster's ribbon rose and two gem sparkles on the glittered butterflies (Bella! paper), finish off the layout.
We hope you have enjoyed your time with us on this Blog Hop. It has been wonderful to have you join us, and we hope to see you back for the next blog hop in August. We'll have a whole new display of inspiration for you! (-:

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog (Paperhugs). She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating incase there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers (Wendy McKee) and that designer is linking to the next and so on. There are 19 design team members, so be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a ZvaCreative prize package ...Woot! Woot! Those blogs will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way. This Blog Hop runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, July 20th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, July, 21st on each of the winning blogs and the full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog (linked above). We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday...plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva Blog Hop post...you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. The more times you leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.
I wanted to share this project with you. Pink and green are one of my favourite colour combinations, so I couldn't resist using the lime green Artisan tape to make my own flowers, with the hot pink felt flowers (from Zva) layered on top. And finishing them off with a big Zva pearl in the centre. How luscious do they look? Throw in some lime green pearls and rhinestones, and the page just sparkles. Products used: large felt flowers (FL-01CB-115); medium felt flowers (FL01CB117); green pearl flourish (PEB-03CA-111); mixed rhinestones (CR-02CB-101); green rhinestone corner frame (CR-03CA-105); large pink rhinestone strip (CRC01CB104); 1/4" gemstone brads (BRBK02CA101); and large pearl brads (BRBK02CA103).
Please hop on over to see: Wendy McKee.
Thank you SO MUCH for joining us. And good luck!!! (-:

I've been busy creating 3 layouts (and I still have 3 more to go), but I can't share any of them with you yet. I can tell you that I used the Noel Mignon "Sunkissed" kit to create all three - one for Pencil Lines, one for Color Combos Galore, and one one for Zva Creative. Which reminds me, Zva Creative is having another blog hop on the 19th July (starting 11:00pm Australian time or 9:00am USA time). I really hope you can come back and join the fun - we all had a blast at the last blog hop. Ok. That's it for me - time to get some shut-eye!!! (-:

And if that isn't enough of a challenge for you, Scrap With V started their Cyber Crop last night. The theme is "women around the house". The challenges are all up, and you have over a week to get them done, then uploaded. And there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs too. You can find all the details in the forum.
Right. I'm off to have a granny nap - I've had other people's children at my house for the past 3 days, I had to share a bed with Keana last night (who woke me up so many times I lost count, plus she's all legs, and is a cuddly sleeper which I am NOT) and I did Malayla's 8th birthday party this morning. So I am stuffed. The girls are at a friends place for a couple of hours. So it is quiet. (-: When I wake up I might just finally get the floors mopped. Yee-hah!!!

Now, please don't faint from shock, but I've done a "purple" layout. Yes, I know I don't like purple (it seems to be the only colour I struggle with), but I really didn't have any choice in the matter. You see those hand-made paper flowers? Well, I made those for another layout I made a few weeks ago, but I didn't use them all, and I didn't want to waste them. And they matched these photos nicely, so I forced myself to use them. I dragged out all the matching Prima papers, and they were all purple, so a purple layout it was! With a dash of pink and yellow for contrast.
Products used: Prima and Basic Grey papers; Prima bling flourish, sultan centres, and flowers; Heidi Swapp ghost shape flowers; Zva Creative gem brads; My Little Shoebox chipboard alphas; and Carolees Creations mini alpha stickers. Other: lace/ribbon; white gel pen.

And in between all this, I have had to rearrange and reorganise my scraproom. It is now, finally, functional and ready to use. I have thrown out so much stuff (yay for me!!!). And I have sorted all my embellishments by colour, so now I can find things. And I have all my tools/equipment out (set up and ready to go) so that I can use them as I desire. It all flows a lot more smoothly. I still have to put tags on everything (and sort through one more box of papers), then I will take photographs and share. (-: The bonus is, that when I am finally finished, I will be doing a blog candy competition. So make sure you come back for that! There are lots of goodies up for grabs.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
