If you arrived here from somewhere else, or if you were just on central's blog, please hop along with us. You need to begin at the first blog and follow the order. In order to qualify to win blog candy, you must make a comment on each blog (keep them nice, please) and you can also post a challenge project.

I want to thank Brenda (aka centralnyscrapper on Crop Chocolate) for hosting my blog hop challenge. Let's use up some of the supplies we have all been hoarding! My challenge is to use 3 different types of alphas on your project. 50% of your supplies (not necessarily the alphas) needs to have been purchased from CropChocolate.com. Please leave comments on either my project or the challenge idea and you will qualify for some blog candy.

Enter a project for this challenge and you will qualify for more blog candy!

Here is my project:


CC products-TH Distress Ink: Wild Honey, Pumice Stone and Shabby Shutters, 6x6 Splash printed cs by EP, Grab bag cs, Stella & Rose Mabel "Little lady" trims, WeRMK Glitter brads, Happy Days brad and printed cs, MM Green Felt Alpha, MM Silver Glitter bling Alphas, MM Pitter Patter Epoxy Shimmer alpha brads,
other products- Close to My Heart "You Are" Stamps, CTMH Sparkles, card base
(Close to My Heart products were won from centralnyscrapper's blog-Yippee!)

Here's the link to add your completed project:


Thanks for hopping!

Update: The winner of the blog candy that Haf2scrap is giving away will be announced on this blog in a few days. Check back after Thursday, July 5 for the post.

  5. Thanks everyone! I threw this together pretty quickly yesterday, in between getting my eye examined (I have a scratched cornea) and celebrating dd#2 birthday. I smeared too much ink over the silver alphas--oh well! I didn't have enough time to re-do or fix it. So it just goes to prove that life comes before crafting! Good thing I am not a total perfectionist! I am going to send this card to a niece for her birthday :)
    Now let's get busy with these challenges!

  20. Darn, I hate to admit defeat, but I got totally stumped with this one :(
    I think it's a great challenge though, and I plan to do it after the deadline, just because it is a REAL challenge for me.
