The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog: Paper Hugs. She will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way. Hidden on 5 of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ... Woo-Hoo!!! 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.
The Blog Hop starts now and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, Oct. 26th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 27th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Kim Hughes‘s blog as well (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. And of course, you've got to be in it, to win it! (-:
I thought I would creat a layout to celebrate the Halloween season. Even though we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, my girls still love the whole concept and can't resist dressing up and enjoying all things spooky. This is my youngest trying very hard to be scary (it didn't work, lol!!!). I've used lots of Zva Creative goodies including rhinestone flourishes (CR-03CA-112), rhinestones (CR-02CB-101), pearls (PE-02CB-101/CR-02CA-127), rhinestone strips (CR01CB113), foam dots (2mm), gemstone brads (BRBK-02CB-102), felt flowers (FL-01CB-114 and FL-01CB-116), and silk flowers (FL01CB110).
I created this layout by spraying Glimmermist (Black Magic) around the outside edges and machine stitching a border. This took some of the brightness out of the orange paper (more grunge). I've made a word sticker block up in the left hand corner, and topped it off with a little metal bat. Isn't he cute? I've then layed down a big block of patterned paper, and layered ribbon, canvas borders, doilies, and Zva Creative flowers on top. I've added some bling, then finished it off with journalling around the outer edge of the layout. Feel free to leave a comment or email me if you have any questions about the layout.
