Kiki Art Blog HopScotch!!!

Kiki Art Products Used: Papers from the China Collection

Welcome to our first KIKI ART Design Team Blog Hop... however, we'd like to call it a BLOG HOPSCOTCH!

• When? During National Scrapbook Day weekend.
It will run from Thursday, April 29th until Monday, May 3rd.

• How to play?
You can start wherever you want, however, make sure to visit the blogs of our talented design team members.

Each design team member was asked to select an organization that commits to helping others. Then, they created a project based on their organization featuring Kiki Art products. Make sure to take note of each organization/good cause each DT member has selected.

When you hop from blog to blog, hopefully you will get inspired by all of the beautiful Kiki Art work. We also hope that you are inspired to do good by getting involved in an effort to create a better world through these organizations.

• How to get a prize from the Kiki Art blog?
For your chance to win, you need to leave a comment on the Kiki Art blog letting us know which one(s) was/were your favorite blog(s) during our blog hop and what organization was displayed on that blog. (Don't limit yourself! You can choose as many blogs as you want!)

• How to get a prize from a Kiki Art design team member blog?
Many members of our design team have decided to give away a project that is related to the good cause they believe in. Leave a comment on their blog hop posts, and they will pick a random winner.

Let the BLOG HOPSCOTCH begin!!! Get inspired and enjoy!

As many of you already know, I love animals and if I could, I'd adopt them all! However, since that is not possible, I wanted to bring to your attention your local animal shelter. Here in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we have a beautiful sanctuary: Bide Awhile Shelter. These wonderful animal shelters take care of those critters who are waiting for their forever home :)

Because my animals are so close to my heart, I thought I would use the Kiki Art Amor Collection and create these cute little super mini photo albums (à la Kathy Thompson Laffoley!) You can add photos of your pets, your kids, or just use them as a little pocket notebook! Leave a comments on this blog posting for your chance to win!

Kiki Art Products used: Papers and chipboard Hearts from the Amor Collection

I wish there was no need for this cause--animals should be treated with respect--just like all creatures... Your little notebooks are cute-i like the one with the green heart the best!
