Christmas Blog Hop!!

Bambam September 27, 2011 58

Welcome one and all! This is Barbara and I’m taking over the blog temporarily while we celebrate Zoe’s Birthday today .. yes, that’s right…



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?! Zoe has released some fabulous new holiday themed images and they are a must on anyone’s holiday list – but the best part is you get 15% off ALL the Christmas digis from now until Sunday, October 2nd. Click on this link HERE to see them all and the discount will automatically apply to your products during checkout.) Be warned, the discount is only for this week even though the blog hop is for two weeks – so make sure to grab them at this sale price while you can!



Before we get to the hop, there’s more details and a surprise in order… 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 below and winners will be announced on Friday, October 14th on their individual blogs. Feel free to grab the blog hop badge and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe’s Birthday and Blog Hop!


I’d ask if you’re ready for some inspiration yet, 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. S.H. also wanted to say “Happy Birthday and thank you!!”



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 “Birthday Cards for Zoe” gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email me with a link to your project to claim her!


Now are you ready for some Christmas inspiration? Grab a cuppa, sit back and relax, and get ready to enjoy a plethora of inspiration from the design team. ;D

Make it Colourful <– you are here

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!
