  1. That's a gorgeous sketch. I must have a go - ran out of time to do last month's challenge. Now it looks like i have a lot of blogs to look at & Fb pages to like ;)

  2. Well I've been blog hopping and enjoyed looking at everyone's individual blogs.....such a variety of styles. I have left comments on each blog, but Carolyn's and Monica's don't have a specific blog post for the hop, so I just left my comments where I could.
    My favourite layout of all that I've seen this morning is actually Tracey's take on the sketch 'Fairy Princess' many gorgeous details and layers!
    Thanks for the fun!

  3. Thanks ladies. Sueat my blog post did not go through as scheduled :( I have fixed it now. Thats what we get for relying on technology huh? Thanks for stopping by ladies Good luck with the hop and the challenge

  4. Ive been past all the blogs too - and WOW some stunning layouts!!! Pretty sure i have followed them all too!! Awesome giveaways up for grabs!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  5. Had Lots of fun! I loved Amy Prior's "Pop" - the colours were just gorgeous!

  6. Wow I have just been past all the blogs and All of the DT's are such and inspiration. Monica's didn't have a specific blog post to the blog hop and so I left my comment on an earlier post about the blog hop. I will check back with Monica's later though as I would love to see her version of the Sketch challenge. THankyou for such a great opportunity for me to see some fantastic work and also for the chance to win a great prize. Out of the Sketch challenge my favorite was Tracey Thorne's "Fairy Princess" but out of all the beautiful work I have seen in these talented ladies blogs my favorite was Carolyn Zabel's Hinged Frames "US". Absolutly Stunning.

  7. Wow (as other people have said)such stunning work!!! Even Monica's layouts from past posts were stunning!!! Will be checking on each of the DT members from now on and get ideas!!! The one layout that was a stand out (and it was hard to choose) was Amys 'Feeding the ducks' love love this layout and I soooooo want that chopboard.
    With Monicas I left a comment on an old post but will check in to leave one on the related post :)

  8. I went back and Monica's Blog Hop post is now up and I have commented. Everyones works is amazing.

  9. There are so many gorgeous creations on this blog hop, and some wonderful techniques with A2Z Scraplets. However, I've been a bit of an Amy Prior devotee for a while and I love the texture she applies to your chippies on here 'Pop" take on the sketch. I posted your bloghop banner on the side of my blog. Cheers Linda

    1. How cute are you Loulou LOL thanks so much for being an Amy Prior devotee i am blushing hehe xx

  10. love this sketch and thanks for the hop!

  11. I have been hopping and hopping and have had fun. All the blogs were great to see. They were different and I got inspiration from them all. It is very hard to choose a favourite, I love Amy's POP one but the photo is great you can see the love in Pop's face. Also love the Princess one by Tracey. Well done everyone.

  12. Well Blogger was really nasty to me & I had all sorts of trouble trying to get onto the blogs, join & leave comments. I finally did it though I had to use my phone in the end. My favourite layout of all was Irit's "angel of mine", but there were so many beautiful & inspiring projects there. Thanks everyone for sharing your work!
