By The Cute And Girly - October Blog Hop!

Welcome to our first every By The Cute and Girly blog hop!
It's our 2nd birthday and we are celebrating in style with a special challenge and blog hop. As well as loads of prizes on the challenge blog, each design team member also has a prize to give away on their blog from their featured sponsor, so lots of chances to win some great prizes.
If you have come from Lora's blog then you are on the right track, if not, you need to hop over to her for the start of the hop.

This is what you need to do for a chance to win one of this month's prizes:

1. Enter the challenge at By The Cute and Girly as you normally would. The theme this month is "Anything Goes" and remember our challenge is for any type of crafts from papercrafts to baking, so you really can enter with anything you like. This month we are limiting the entries to 1 per person since it's anything goes.

2. Do the hop and leave a comment on each of the design team's blogs for a chance to win the prize on their blog.

3. Each design team member has a letter of the alphabet on their blog that you need to collect. When you are finished the hop and have collected all the letters, rearrange them to make a word and email it to Lora (you will find her email address and instructions on the challenge blog). Please DO NOT leave a comment with the word you have made, you must email Lora with it.

4. HAVE FUN!

I'm thrilled to be sponsored for our first ever blog hop by Joanna Sheen and I have a £10 gift certificate for her shop to give away to one lucky winner who leaves a comment on this post.

Here are the links for the products from Joanna Sheen that I've used in my projects today.



I've got 3 projects to share with you. 1st a scrapbook page using the cute Giordano stamp detailed above. (All of the colouring for this month's projects has been done with ProMarkers.) 
Then an altered notebook made with one of the decoupage sheets printed from the CD. 


I've seen the Giordano family images before and they are so lovely it was hard to choose which design to use off the CD,  so I will be sharing some more projects before the end of the month!

My last project is a Christmas card to introduce you to the cute and quirky Gleanies!
I hope you've enjoyed looking at my projects, but now on with the hop.  To enter the Blog Hop and be in with a chance of winning one of the fantastic prizes detailed on the challenge blog you will need to make a note of the letter from me which is T and then carry on to the next stop on the hop which is Geraldine.

Here's a list of the hop order in case you get lost along the way:
Lora
Kate - that's me, you're here now!
Geraldine
Ayelet
Lisa Jane
Hanna
Tammy
Carol
By The Cute And Girly Challenge Blog - This is where you will find the email address to send your blog hop word to once you have linked up your challenge entry.  If you have any questions about the hop please leave a comment on the challenge blog and one of the team will be sure to get back to you.

Still here?  Leave me a comment and hop along to Geraldine's!!
