Scruffy and Party Girl Zoe!!

It's Zoe's Birthday today and we wanted to celebrate it right!! She suggested having a Christmas Blog Hop but we knew what day it was and have secretly planned a hug birthday celebration behind the scenes. So most of these details are unbeknown to Zoe up until now. (he he he) So with out further delay...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE!!!

You should have arrived here from Carole's blog and seen her uber cool project!! Or head on over to the Make it Colourful blog to START from the beginning.

To commemorate this joyous occasion, we're so excited to bring you a Birthday Blog Hop disguised as a Christmas Blog Hop!! We wanted to celebrate Zoe's Birthday in style so there are lots of inspiration, prizes, freebies and even a gallery album for you to express your own birthday greetings. ;D This is one hop you don't want to miss and it only goes from now until October 12th!


The general theme for this hop is Christmas and what fun would a hop be without some new images?! There is a great sale going on this week to make sure you head over to the Make it Colourful blog for all the details or click HERE to see all the fabulous new images!


For my project I used Scruffy and kept the card simple. This was hard to do so I had to keep my eye on Elaine's blog the whole time while chanting... keep it simple, keep it simple! I managed to duplicate one of her cards and it will be perfect for mailing off this holiday season. One down and now 59 more to make.


Back to the blog hop details... Everyone in this blog hop is giving away Blog Candy!! Whoohoo!! You'll have two weeks, until October 12th, to visit each member in the hop and the winner for my blog candy will be announced on Friday, October 14th right here. Feel free to grab the badge from the sidebar and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe's Birthday and Blog Hop! Here's what I have to give away...


All you need to do for this Blog Candy is...
(1) add your name to the InLink collection below and (2) become a Follower
The blog candy is open to everyone, anywhere in the world... friends, family and fellow DT members too. ;D

But wait... we've got yet another surprise for you!! We contacted one of Zoe's artists (S.H.) to draw up an image for us and she came us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion.


This is "Party Girl Zoe" and isn't she ca-ute! We wanted to make sure everyone was included in our celebration so we're giving away Part Girl Zoe as a freebie to everyone who wants to join in and spread some birthday cheer!! All you need to do is create a new project using a Make it Crafty image or chippies and upload it into the gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email me with a link to your project to claim her!


YOUR NEXT STOP ... We hope you've enjoyed the hop and make sure you head on over to Zoe's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday! Grab the Christmas Blog Hop badge and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe's Birthday and Blog Hop! Until then, happy coloring!
