Blog Hop & Giveaways!


Hi everyone - I don't know if I already mentioned, but I'm on the DT for the lovely team at It's A Creative World... and this weekend we're having a blog hop!

If you are already following along, you'll have come here from Mandy's blog - Welcome, Hoppers!

 For my part I'd like to invite you all to try your hand at a very popular mixed media project - shrine making. Shrines are places to give thanks, seek answers, and venerate treasures things - they can be religious, spiritual, or neither, so anyone can join in.  Mine was created for someone in particular, who I was partnered with in a swap, and who wanted the theme 'Things with Wings':

It's one of the simplest forms of shrine - a matchbox drawer stood on its end, with a piece of card or chipboard cut into a frame.  I chose a house shape, but you could chose a circle, star, tree, you name it - totally up to you.
Then you just decorate and fill with whatever you love :)

So, the giveaway part... Leave a comment on my blog during this blog hop, and I'll enter you into a draw to win your very own, custom-made shrine, and some lovely altering goodies for you to try your own out too!
For another chance, make sure you become a follower of my blog, and for even more chances, follow the blog hop around and comment as you go.  Even if you don't win, you'll feel like a winner when you see all the lovely projects everyone has to inspire you with, and there are a few more giveaways to be found too!

You may (or may not!) also know I'm an independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator too - so to celebrate the blog hop I'm also having a special deal on at Beautiful Impressions - click to find out what, and how you can benefit!

Thanks for looking - and you're now off on your next part of the hop, to the lovely Kerry.

Celebrate Spring!
