Polka Dot Blog Hop~

Today is very special because I am participating in my first blog hop! If you got here from Liz then you are headed in the right direction. If you want to start at the beginning, start at Inking it Up Crazy and hop from there! The theme of the hop is of course "Polka Dots" and if you know me you know I love all things polka dots! I have had this accordian album forever that came in a little tin so I finally decided to use it for something. I have no Easter decorations in my house so I decided to make them. The little rabbits I cut out from cardstock and then put them on action wobbles.

My First Video~ Action Wobbles in Action!

Products Used:
Accordian Album in tin (maker unknown I got the tin at a garage sale for cheap)
Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (letters)
Everyday Cards Cricut Cartridge (circles)
K&Company Sleepy Tree Paper (rabbit cut outs)
Core'dinations Pink Cardstock (letters)
Dear Lizzy Blissful Bunny Spring Patterned Paper
My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup Zoo Cuties Paper
Basic Grey Olivia Paper
My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy Paper
Fancy Pants Love Birds Paper
Random Buttons
Action Wobbles (love them!) **these can be found at**
Twine from The Twinery (the best!)
Prima Flowers
White Gel Pen
ATG gun
Glue Dots
Recollection bling

Hope you love what I made! To go to the next stop on the blog hop, you want to visit Sandee and see what talented creation she has come up with! She is amazing!

To get to the blog candy... I only need to 7 more followers to get to 100 and then I am giving away a Sizzix Sidekick embossing machine! Today, because I am in my first hop I will be giving away the Cricut Cartridge Simply Sweet to someone who comments on this post AND that is a follower! Good Luck! Simply Sweet - To win leave a comment on this post and please become a follower of my blog~ Sizzix Sidekick to be given away when I reach 100 followers!

I will pick the winners of both prizes on Monday the 21st! Stay tuned!

Love Holly

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost!










Holly THAT'S ME!~
