Zva Creative March DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative and the Design Team welcomes you to join us this month for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special!

There is now an added twist to our blog hops, YAY!  As you know, Zva offers so many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. 

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, just follow along the blog path.  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 FIVE of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package ...YAY! Winners 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 today, March 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, March 29th and the 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 30th 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.


This month, I'm featuring yellows and browns and here's my Zva layout - Welcome to the Family:




It's a layout of the newest addition to our family, the cutest little puppy. :) He's a little bundle of energy and SO adorable. :)

I used Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden collection on the layout. I tore out a frame from the centre of the patterned paper, scrunching up the edges as I did so.


I adorned the corner of the layout with a beautiful new flower from Zva Creative along with a lovely butterfly crystal swirl.


On the opposite corner, lots of butterflies, hand-crinkled seam binding, distressed edges, and another Zva flower.





The blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes

Your next stop is here: Gail Lindner
