Zva Creative March DT Blog Hop

Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our March blog hop! We are excited about month's hop and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog! Be sure head on over to check it out! You will also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case there is a glitch along the way). 

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals.  If you like what you see along the hop you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

Project Pretty Sweet





 You might not see it, but the flower used to be orange....  I have used both different pink mists, pink distress ink and a white Dylusion spray to water in down.  You can use mists and paint also on the pearls to color it if you don't feel you have the right color.

Products used:
[FL-04CA-130 2.5" Dual- Flowers - Orange]
[CRS-05CA-110 Flourish IV - White Pearl]

Its Easter but the snow still lie quite heavy outside, not even the driveway is dry but I wanted to catch the feeling of spring and summer by using this colors and wishing the warm weather to return soon.  I want to pack down my wintercoat. 

Here in Norway many people head up in the mountains to a cabin with the family for Easter, and its not unusual for that cabin to be without running water or a real toilet, just to be together and to ski.  My husband and kids, together with my inlaws and his brothers family are now gathered at such a cabin, last year they drilled for water and the toilet is not one that flushes....I have to work so I will not be joining them until Wednesday.  Here you can say that the Easter vacation started last Friday and lasts until next Monday. All stores are always closed on Sundays here but for Easter they are also closed Thursday, Friday and just a few hours on Saturday and closed again on Monday.   Easter requires a lot of planning.... 

If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path.  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!
The Blog Hop starts today, March 25th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, March 26th.
***Prizes***

All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 27th on Zva Creative's blog. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday to see if you are a winner!
