Zva Creative September DT Blog Hop

Zva Creative and my fellow Design Team members welcome you to our September blog hop! We are excited happy you are joining us and look forward to sharing our new work with you!

Today's Blog Hop begins at Zva Creative's Facebook page! Be sure head on over to check it out!

Here's a list of participants (in case there is a glitch along the way):

As you know, Zva Creative offers many beautiful color groupings for pearls, flowers and crystals. If you like what you see along the hop, you can find a list of stores and online retailers that sell Zva HERE.

  I've paired these glorious Zva Creative pearl flourishes with some new Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics paper. I really like the dichotomy of the elegant pearls with the ripped/distressed paper. I also added a strip of petite pearls along the edge of the lace. The sentiment is from Verve's newest release...this set is called Each Day.
Today also happens to be my 18th wedding anniversary and I just wanted to wish my most wonderful, patient, caring, thoughtful husband....(the list goes on)....Happy Anniversary! Flashback 18 years ago...

And now:

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!

The Blog Hop starts today, September 30th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 1st.

***Prizes***  Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. 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.

The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 2nd on Zva Creative's Facebook page!

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.

The blog hop begins here at Zva Creative's Facebook page! Your next stop is Marilia Lopes. Enjoy!
