Polkadoodle Challenge 13 - Easter & BLOG HOP!

It's time for another Polkadoodle challenge but this week we have a bit of a twist! We still have our regular challenge but we also have a blog hop which is also part of the challenge!! And you know what that means - LOADS of candy!!

CHALLENGE STAGE 1: Now, we know not everyone like to do a hop for whatever reason, so we still have our normal challenge for the week which is EASTER themed - you must make a card or project which is Easter themed.

But that's not all...

CHALLENGE STAGE 2: Our second challenge is the blog hop - if you hop along with us this week you will find that the Easter Bunny has arrived early and left some hidden goodies on some of the Design Teams blogs - but you have to hop though the whole list to find who the Easter Bunny has visited!

You need to complete both the Easter themed challenge and the blog hop to be in with a chance of winning one of the fantastic prizes on offer! You need to go to the challenge blog to see what is on offer but it is fabulous! There will be one grand prize winner and two second place winners!

The Easter Bunny has arrived early at my blog and I'm giving away a copy of the brand new (and very fantastic!) Sugarplum Daisy cd (image kindly 'borrowed' from Polkadoodles!) To be in with a chance of getting your hands on the cd, simply leave a comment on my blog! It's that easy!

And now onto my project for the week! I've used one of the decoupage images from Paper Boutique Vol 1, using foam pads to layer up the different elements. The pouch is a template I found on the internet and I've used papers from the same Flopsie Bunny collection and printed on both sides.

The bunny has then been added with a strip of acetate so he boings around! For a bit more interest, I've added some Marianne Creatable die cuts around the pouch, colouring them with Promarkers to match.


Right, back to the blog hop! If you have arrived at my blog from Lana then you are on the right track! The letter you require from me is

A

Keep it safe and now hop to Claire!

Good luck! If you get stuck, please go back to the Polkadoodle Challenge blog where you will find the full list of Polkadoodlers. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog as you pass though!
