Blog Hopscotch Time!!!

Thanks for coming to my blog and joining Kiki Art's first ever blog hop... However, we'd like to call it a BLOG HOPSCOTCH!

• When? During National Scrapbook Day weekend.
It will run from Thursday, April 29th until Monday, May 3rd.

• How to play?
You can start wherever you want, however, make sure to visit the blogs of our talented design team members. Also, please make sure to visit the Kiki Art blogs (English, French, and Spanish) to be eligible to win.

Each design team member was asked to select an organization that commits to helping others. Then, they created a project based on their organization featuring Kiki Art products. Make sure to take note of each organization/good cause each DT member has selected.

When you hop from blog to blog, hopefully you will get inspired by all of the beautiful Kiki Art work. We also hope that you are inspired to do good by getting involved in an effort to create a better world through these organizations.

• How to get a prize from the Kiki Art blog?
For your chance to win, you need to leave a comment on the Kiki Art blog letting us know which one(s) was/were your favorite blog(s) during our blog hop and what organization was displayed on that blog. (Don't limit yourself! You can choose as many blogs as you want!)

• How to get a prize from a Kiki Art design team member blog?
Many members of our design team have decided to give away a project that is related to the good cause they believe in. Leave a comment on their blog hop posts, and they will pick a random winner.

On Tuesday, May 4th, all winners will be announced!

Let the BLOG HOPSCOTCH begin!!! Get inspired and enjoy!

And here's my Earth Day give-away...a rolled paper frame using scrap papers from Kiki Art and cardboard backing from paper stacks.

This was so easy and fun to do. I picked it up from a project by Leah Fung, but made mine a little bigger. I whitewashed the frame to add a slightly distressed effect, and added the Kiki Art glitter heart chipboard and a metal word plate.

Leave a comment here to be included in a drawing to win this photo frame (open to all, international included).

Thanks again for dropping by...
