Zva Creative October DT Blog Hop!

 Zva Creative and our talented Design Team welcome you to join us for our October Blog Hop! We are happy to have you join us and hope you enjoy all that we have to share with you along the way!

The Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's blogBe 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 was 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.
The photo in the layout is of my mom, sister and grandmother on Mothers Day. 3 Generations. At the time, we had 5 generations, but now we are back to 4 with the passing of my beloved grandmother. For this layout I used K and Company's new Susan Winget collection "Floral". It is beautiful! The colors are divine. Using Zva Creatives products on this layout seemed fitting.



I used Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die to create the pink flowers. And the McGill Sun punch for the middles.


The  gorgeous pearl  flourish is Flourishes- Taupe Pearl -[CR-05CB-109]


The beautiful frilly pink flower is the  3" Dual-Frosty Flowers - White & Pink -[FL-04CA-124] It comes in a 2 pack and the other color is white.


The daisy flowers were created using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the middles were created the same as the smaller pink flowers.


Just a closeup of the flowers.



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, October 29th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 30th. 
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 31st on Zva Creative's blogWe will do our best to notify each winner, but it's best if you can pop in to Zva's blog on Wednesday.

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 "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 blog and leave a comment there to tell us that you made it there!
