Zva Creative October DT Blog Hop

It's time again for the Zva Designers to join together to share a project that we have created using some of our favorite Zva Creative products. I am hoping that you will take some time to join us for a little bit of fun again this month!

The Blog Hop begins at Kim Hughes' blog. 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 ...YAY! 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.

Here's a layout I created using some of Zva Creatives new bling and flowers:


I went for a shabby-chic layout with lots of tearing and distressing. I've used the new Zva pearl design here, which goes beautifully with the nature-themed layout.


Tucked along the torn edges of the layout are little Zva roses in shades of coffee, butter, olive and vanilla.




A shabby cluster of roses, lace, butterfly and curled edges in the corner:



The title work:

Supplies:

Flowers - Zva Creative bulk 3D flowers 
Pearl Branch: Zva Creative PEB-03CA-106
Patterned Paper - 7 Gypsies Conservatory collection
