InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!!!

Are you ready to have some fun today??? InStyle Stamps is having a super fun Blog Hop where you can get to know the Design Team AND win some blog candy!! Make sure to read all the way to the bottom to find out how to win some fantastic prizes!! Here is how you play along....

First, each of the DT has created a project using an InStyle Stamps image. It is your job to visit each of our blogs and head over to the ISS blog to vote for your favorite project! The DT member with the most votes wins a prize!! But that is NOT all. You also have a chance to win a prize just for voting. It really does NOT get any easier than that!

Here is my project: I used a 4x6 photo accessory keeper that I found at WalMart. I used the Willows digital download to create the "stems" for my flowers. I printed it out onto my paper, pierced holes in the stems and then used embroidery floss to fill in.

And for a view of one of the sides. All of the sides are the same.

Second, there will be a "Meet the DT Trivia" game for you to play along with. All you need to do is collect the answers to a list of questions about the DT and e-mail your answers to by 10pm EST You will find the list of questions over at the InStyle Stamps forum under "At the Hop". Here are my questions and answers............

What is your favorite color combination for crafting? Whatever I am in the mood for when I am creating.

If you were stuck on a deserted island, and a box washed up on shore, what 5 craft supplies would you most want to find inside? Trimmer, paper, ink pad, stamp and adhesive.

What is your favorite coloring medium? markers

What embellishment can you not live without? ribbon

What are your hobbies (other than papercrafting)? Sewing, quilting, and reading (is reading a hobby?)

What’s your favorite spring time activity? Sitting outside wrapped up in a blanket on my patio reading a good book, with a fire going in the outdoor fireplace.

If you could visit any place in the world, where would you choose to go? England

When you were little, who was your favorite super hero and why? I did not have a favorite super hero when I was little.

What is one item that you really should throw away, but probably never will? My blank CM scrapbook pages.

If you were an animal, what would you be? I would be a cat.

If you could have an endless supply of any food item, what would you get? Pizza, of course!

What is your favorite movie? Gone with the Wind

Who is your favorite actor/actress? Robert Duvall

Do you have a pet? If so, what do you have? Yes, I have 3 cats and 1 puppy.
