Zva Creative March DT Blog Hop!

Zva Creative http://www.zvacreative.com/index.html and our talented
Design Team welcome you to our March blog hop!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blog
http://www.zvacreative.com/wordpress/ ! Be sure head on over to check
it out! Leave a comment there for a chance to win an extra prize package
just for visiting the blog and telling us that you stopped by! You will
also find a complete list of all the participating blogs there (in case
there is a glitch along the way).

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 will be sharing a creation using a specific
color or color combination on their blog hop project. If you like what
you see you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva
HERE http://www.zvacreative.com/retaillocator.html .

Gabrielle came home for the weekend. It was nice to have her around and I got some new photo's. Just a quick photo shoot in our back yard.

I love the size of the big bloom!! [FL-04CA-105] 4.25" Flower w leaves in Fushia. I also love the color!!! Hot lavender!! I took apart the leaves from the attached stem and rearranged them. It gave it a different look. Then I cut apart the flourish, Triumph - White Pearl -
[CRB-04CB-108] and put a piece on either side of the flower.


I added some beautiful lavender crystals Dots Crystal - Lavender (0.3 cm & 0.5 cm) -
[CRW-04CB-133] to the punched edges. And on either end of the photo is Symmetrical Flourishes - Basic Pearl (F) -[PEW-03CA-103]. They are so pretty!!

I used an assortment of flowers and leaves to create the flower spray. The middle flower is 1.5" graceful roses -Purple -[FL-04CA-136], the ones to either side are the Sweet Rose, the 4 smaller ones are Mini Rose (144 stems) -11/16" or 19mm -Lavender Transition
[FLBK-03CB-121] and the leaves are 36pc leaves #II - 1.5" -[FL-04CA-114].

Just a closeup of the gorgeous flower.



If you would like to play along with our design team, 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 designer's 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, March 26th and runs through midnight US
Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, March 27th.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 28th on each of the
five winning blogs. The full list will be found on Zva's blog
http://www.zvacreative.com/wordpress/ 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 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 comment along the blog hop path,
the more chances you will have to win.

We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our
blog hop prize! 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.

*Hop over to Zva's NEW blog http://www.zvacreative.com/wordpress/
and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!

The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's NEW blog
http://www.zvacreative.com/wordpress/ .
Your next stop is the very talented Jolanda Meurs http://www.jolandameurs.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!
