CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

Wow...it's hard to believe that 3 years ago, Chupa sent me an email asking me if I'd like to help her launch her new challenge blog, CASE Study! Of course I was in...how could I not? What a great way to derive inspiration from some of the master card makers out there! So I'm pleased to participate in this year's festivities...a blog hop featuring past Muses and current/former Design Team members! If you're on the blog hopping path, you should have arrived here from super talented, super sweet Niki Estes' blog. In case there's a glitch along the way, the whole list is posted on the CASE Study blog.
Our inspiration for these creations are are up to us...I've chosen a picture that I pinned onto my 'Card Inspiration' Pinterest board...for obvious reasons! Here's how I was inspired by this beautiful photo:


  • The theme for the Blog Hop is Inspiration. Pick anything that inspires you as of late (be it of Pinterest source, a piece of clothing, magazine ad, a fellow crafter... you get the vibe) and design something around it. Any paper crafting project is fine.


Oh...and you know that there are prizes to be won! All Blog Hops are open until midnight on the following Wednesday (7th). In order to be eligible for the prizes offered, players are asked to spread a bit of blog love to those participating in today's event.
Here's a list of prize sponsors for today's hop:
