Inspirational Blog Hop - Polkadot Door


Hello! Happy Blog hop day! It's a big weekend for scrapbookers. National Scrapbook Day has everyone buzzing with hops and crops and fun all over the web. And my site will be no different.

This hop is for the Polkadot Door Designs girls, Rebecca and Sarah. I met these ladies not too long ago through a variety of challenges and have happily followed their blog for wonderful ideas and inspiration. If you don't follow yet, you won't be disappointed if you start now. :)

I am a part of their May team as we bring you this fabulous piece of inspiration for you to create with.


And here is what I made from the inspiration. I gravitated towards the pinwheels, the sticks they are on, the orange and teal colors in the flowers, and the script-like short sentiment.

I hope you'll play along with us. This prompt has so much potential.



As you hop be sure to leave a comment on every blog and head back to the Polkadot Door site once you finish. Leave a comment on the Polkadot Door to let them know you completed the blog hop and tell them who your favorite designer was because by doing so you are eligible to win the Fresh Collection of stamps from American Crafts. (Psssttt... I definitely would love it if you vote for me. Just sayin'!!)

But that is not all. One lucky blog hop participant will also win an incredible kit from a very generous sponsor, Apron Strings Kit Club. To be eligible, be sure to leave a comment on every blog, including this one. They'll post the winners on the 16th, so be sure to check back!


HERE'S THE HOP!

I sure hope you enjoyed the inspiration here! I know I am loving this weekend—hope you are, too!
