Zva Creative November DT Blog Hop!


Hello everyone and welcome!


Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcomes you to join us this November for a blog hop that we feel is always extra special because it is the first hop for many of our new 2011-12 team members! We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! See details below.

As you know, Zva offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. We want to make sure that they shine bright for you, so each designer was asked to share a creation using a specific color or color combination on their blog hop project. If you like Zva's products you can find a list stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

If you are one of my regular visitors you can go to the beginning of the blog hop which begins at Windy Robinson's blog.  Windy will have the complete list of all blogs that are participating in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play along, 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!

Hidden on FIVE of the blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over, so it's important to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can along the way.

The Blog Hop starts today, November 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 29th.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 30th on each of the five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Windy Robinson's blog as well. We will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to all of the blogs once again on Wednesday... plus, you never know what kind of inspirational creation that you may find there.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this Zva 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 leave a comment along the blog hop path though, the more chances you will have to be one of the lucky winners.

To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you "tweeted" about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

* Comment to let us know that you asked your local store to carry Zva creative products. If they already do, that's fantastic, maybe you can suggest other products that they don't carry.

So you have FOUR chances on each blog to win one of our FIVE prizes! That's a lot of chances to win!


The layout that I'm sharing today uses Zva's Graceful Roses (FL-04CA-133), Dual Flowers (FL-04CA-129), Dual Frosty Flowers (FL-04CA-124), Elegant Rose Buds - Blue, Mini Rose - White and Blooming - White Pearl (CR-04CA-119).  My color focus is blue and ice white which goes beautifully with this photo of my daughter. 



I added just a hint of white paint to my flowers to give them a dreamy look.  I used the pearl flowers from Blooming White Pearls (CR-04CA-119) and cut them to make separate flowers.  This allows me to place pearl flowers throughout my design.





Zva Creative: 
1.5" Graceful Roses - Blue - FL-04CA-133
2.5" Dual Flowers - Blue - FL-04CA-129
3" Dual Frosty Flowers - White - FL-04CA-124
Elegant Rose Buds - Blue - FLBK-03CB-149
Mini Rose - White - FLBK-03CB-101
Blooming - White Pearl - CR-04CA-119

The blog hop begins here: Windy Robinson. Your next stop is here: Lisa Gregory.

P.S. Next month's blog hop will be happening one week early so mark your calendar to join us on Monday, December 19th for another inspiring Zva blog hop!

Thank you SO MUCH for joining us
