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: 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 ... 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, October 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.

My project today is this layout titled 'Best Buds Always', using Zva Creative's new pearl embellishment and flowers, together with Pink Paislee's Sweetness collection paper.



I layered the horizontal borders below the photo using lots of 3D dots, and also used 3D dots for the photo itself and the hand-cut flowers. This gives the layout lots of dimension.




I added texture to the layout with the laces, canvas border and faux suede leaves.



Add on the lovely flowers, pearls and crystal brads from Zva Creative and the layout's good to go! :)



So, the blog hop begins here: Kim Hughes' blog - Paper Hugs

And your next stop is here: Lynn Mercurio's blog - Stamperosity

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us! :)
