First Craft Your Passion Blog Hop!

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges VERY FIRST
“Anything Goes” Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about all the changes our blog has gone
through in the last couple of months and wanted to throw a party. What better
way to do that, than to have a BLOG HOP!!!
If you have hopped over from
Jaiden’s blog 

then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like
to join our hop from the beginning, please go to
Craft Your Passion
follow along for a chance to win some AMAZING blog candy along the way and
PRIZES at the end.

All Craft Your Passion DT
members are going to be playing along in the hop with some very special guest
Each designer along the way is
featuring a project that showcases a digital image from at least one of our
amazing Blog Hop Sponsors.
What’s more exciting is you can
participate too by creating a project and linking it up over at
Craft Your Passion
for a
chance to win one of several prizes.
But, there’s a twist. Be sure to
visit all the stops and leave a comment. Once you have finished the hop we would
like you to create a project using at least one digital stamp and enter it with
our Linky tool.
While you are hopping, be sure to
check out the blog candy the designer’s have to offer you. You don’t want to
miss out on any of it!

I’ve used Deacon Bugs from one of our fabulous sponsors Bugaboo Stamps to make  a collectors jar – not for real bugs/creepy crawlies.It’s for my DS2’s plastic toys.I’ve coloured him with ProMarkers and used various scraps left over from other projects.The string I found in the kitchen drawer.

For my second project I’ve made a card using Flower Girl with Kitty from Rick’s Goodies another wonderful sponsor.She’s been coloured with Promarkers.The papers are some K & Co from my stash and I’ve used some Core’dinations Roy G.Biv cardstock to layer it on.I stamped the sentiment and arranged some paper roses and leaves around it.Some teeny gems and raffia lace have been added to the prettiness of it all.
