Creative Accents First Blog Hop!

If you're looking for The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge please scroll to next post.  Thanks!!!!

Well even tho I'm not a Williams Lake local anymore, I was more then thrilled when I was asked to be a part of their Creative Accents blog hop.  I use to design for them and LOVE the products they carry.  For the size of the store, it's JAM PACKED with the newest accessories, bling, paper, inks, whatever you need!  

I hope you have had fun hopping through the blog today.  If you're just arriving from Chris's Creations then you are on the right track. If you'd like to start over and have a chance at the fun blog candy then head on over to Creative Accents blog.

PRIZE ALERT! There will be a prize given for comments selected randomly among comments on ALL 8 BLOGS... chances of winning are best if comments are made on each blog along the hop!  Besides, these ladies enjoy getting a little luv from ya!

On to the rest of the blog hop and CHALLENGE!!  This challenge is running for the rest of July and here is the photo to use for inspiration:

Ummm wow did it take me a bit to come up with something but I ended up being inspired simply by the Ipod itself.  I made a stationery box and used the face of the Ipod as a sketch....okay turn the Ipod upside down.  The flower on the front and then the monogram is the square on the Ipod.  

You can find this tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers along with other samples.

Most of my products were bought at Creative Accents but ALL the products are available there.    

Now it's your turn!! 

This blog hop is a kick-off for CA's July CHALLENGE to create any card, scrapbook layout or paper based project inspired by this image (could be colors, layout, music...)

Your project should include

So what are you waiting for?  Let's see your projects!!
