Zee and Mo are hopping! JOIN US as we go to the CARNIVAL!

Clowns, cotton candy, sticky fingers, huge stuffed animals, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet at the end of a long day... Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have just hopped on over from the blog of my awesome teamie, Annika.
If you just popped on by to say g’day and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to START HERE!

Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival! To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

Along the way you will find balloons with letters in each of them. Write down the letters as you go and put them together at the end for our secret little message!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

For my little celebration here, I chose the brand new Unicycle and Flying Balloon Chair, and thought that our little Christmas Elves might look cute on them!

(click to enlarge for deets!)

Whatcha think? Who says we can't have CARNIVAL jesters, instead of Christmas Elves?! And don't you just love the expression on the little one's face?!

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thof April, so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up - two HUGE and awesome teams means a WHOLE slew of inspiring projects for you to check out! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!) (Oh, what's this I see? Some little image thingy! Wonder what I should do with it!)


And what's a hop without sponsors? I would personally like to say a HUGE thank you to the sponsors of this hop...
Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie , who have given us some AMAZING prizes for some very lucky winners!

Additionally, check this out!

Grab her now! She's available for just $1 from now
until April 28th,
while we are hopping along! Click the image to go to Mo's store!


SOOOOO, be sure to leave a comment on this post, and at each stop of the hop, for a chance to win some HOT hidden treasure! Enjoy the eye candy, the carnival snackies, and the entertainment along the way, and now off you go to visit the fantabulatious Beccy! Tell her I said hello! ;)



(p.s. -
In case you have trouble seeing my balloon – my letter is “a”! now could i have made that ANY easier for you, seriously?!)
