Deconstructed Blog Hop



It's a Deconstructed Sketch Vacation Blog Hop! Jen is on vacation this week so she thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit this week and have a blog hop! And you know what a blog hop means... that's right PRIZES!! For this blog hop there will be TWO prizes, one for one very lucky commenter and one for one very lucky randomly drawn participant in the sketch challenge.

So what do you need to do? Well, hop around to all the design team blogs and leave a comment. The list is below so you can hop in your own order. Very easy! Second, take a look at the sketch and make a project using the sketch as creative inspiration, post it online (blog or gallery) and link it back to the InLinkz on Jen's blog. Again, very easy!! On June 27th, 2011 Jen will announce the winner of the comment prize on her blog. The winner of the sketch participation prize will be announced on June 30th along with the next sketch.

So what are the prizes? Well Jen has kept that a secret so you will need to take a trip to her blog to find out what the prizes will be! But they are sure to be BIG! (and a big thanks to Jen, not only for another awesome sketch this week, but also for the prizes)!!

For my card today, I've used a stamp from Lily of the Valley called Big Present and paired it with papers from My Mind's Eye--American-Made line. I tried to be as true to the sketch as I could, but I have to admit I did take liberty with the scale of things. :) The sentiment is from PTI and the stitching is done by hand.

And now on to the HOPPING!
