Easter Blog Hop With Polka Doodles

Hello everyone and welcome to the Polka Doodles Easter Blog Hop which will go on until 12 noon on Easter Sunday so this post will stay at the top until then.
We still have our regular challenge but we also have the blog hop as part of the challenge!! And you know what that means - LOADS of candy!!

CHALLENGE STAGE 1: Now, we know not everyone like to do a hop for whatever reason, so we still have our normal challenge for the week which is EASTER themed - you must make a card or project which is Easter themed.

Here's my inspiration for the challenge with the details of how I made it (don't worry as I've kept it short this time)

 I made the basket following a tutorial which I found on the internet using some of the gorgeous bright and Springlike checked papers from the brand new Sugarplum Daisy CD which is also where the adorable little bunnies can be found. I added an Easter greeting from the Paper Boutique Vol 3 CD and finished off with flowers made from Marianne Designs circle doily die set and flourish sprigs from the garden branch die also by Marianne Designs.

But that's not all...
CHALLENGE STAGE 2: Our second challenge is the blog hop - if you hop along with us this week you will find that the Easter Bunny has arrived early and left some hidden goodies on some of the Design Teams blogs - but you have to hop though the whole list to find who the Easter Bunny has visited! You will also need to leave a comment so that we know you've stopped by.
You need to complete both the Easter themed challenge and the blog hop to be in with a chance of winning one of the fantastic prizes on offer! Believe me you really need to go to the challenge blog to see what is on offer but it is fabulous! There will be one grand prize winner and two second place winners!

If you've never taken part in a blog hop before it's easy peasy...all you need to do is visit each blog in turn and for this hop each Polkadoodler will give you a LETTER (be careful - some of the Polkadoodlers may have more than one!) Now add all the letters together, unscramble them and leave a comment on the Polkadoodle Challenge Blog (comments will be moderated!) with what the word is.

Your entry will automatically be judged for the Easter themed challenge BUT we will know if you have completed the Blog Hop so if you haven't you will still only be eligible for the random blog candy hidden amongst some of the Polkadoodlers. FOR THE EASTER THEMED CHALLENGE JUST LEAVE YOUR ENTRY AS NORMAL USING THE INLINKZ BUTTON, WE WILL SORT THROUGH THE ENTRIES AS WE WILL KNOW IF YOU FOLLOWED THE HOP OR NOT! ; )

If you have arrived at my blog from NIKKY then you are on the right track! If not then please go back to the challenge blog to find the hop order. The letter you require from me is S - keep it safe and now jump to

 Good luck! If you get stuck, please go back to the Polkadoodle Challenge blog where you will find the full list of Polkadoodlers.
Hope to see you here.
