Easter Blog Hop!


Happy Easter and welcome to the Easter blog hop! 

Today is the day when we tumble down the rabbit's hole and hop after the White Rabbit. The rabbit hops from blog to blog, from country to country all around the cyber scrapbooking world!

Although the countries and styles vary and designers participating had a free choice what to create for the hop, the pieces of art have all something in common. If you're familiar with Alice in Wonderland, you might remember that the White Rabbit, which Alice followed and found the Wonderland, had a pocket watch. So in this hop the common theme is the time piece. You can find an interpretation or a way to incorporate a clock in every creation! Inspiring, right? 

So please hop along and remember to leave a comment at every stage! That way you ensure as many tickets for the raffle as possible. You'll have just a week to participate (to April 8th at noon GMT) for the giveaway put together from donations from 7 Dots Studio, BadgesFolie, Garn&Mehr, Stromsvigt and Wycinanka.



The hop runs 

from 12.00 noon GMT 1 April 2013 

till 12.00 noon GMT 8 April 2013


Order of the hop:  You start with Elena Sevrina and finish with Christin Grønnslett. 

So enjoy the hop and find the inspiring Wonderland of scrapbooking!

Sorry for the array of colours above, no matter what I did, Blogger decided to do something else.

Here is my take "Hippity Hoppity";


The backing paper used is from Norwegian Vibeke Spigseth. The little birdies are from a G45 paper and the green/white strip at the bottom is KaiserCraft.

My clock is tucked in at the bottom of the big cluster - it's cut-off from the packaging of Blue Fern Studios chipboard.




I used the Blue Fern Studios Lattice Gate (074950) under the photo. I randomly swiped white acrylic paint with my finger over it. Then I dabbed on TH distress ink in Vintage Photo and smeared some TA Glimmer Glaze in Saffron here and there before very lightly dabbing on some more white acrylic paint and some more distress ink.

This is how it looks raw and THIS is where you can buy it.

Lattice Gate 







Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend and week, thanks ever so much for popping by!

In my next post I will share my April DT page for OUAS.

Your next stop is Jessica Lohof!

Toodeloo! xoxoxo Eila
