Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Welcome to Tiddly Inks' first blog hop of the year!

We are celebrating the many friends that make our world a more lovely place and are so glad you are here as one of them. :)

We are trying to keep this simple, so the blog hop is based on the Challenge Blog home page. Instead of directing you to the next page, we suggest you keep the Challenge Blog open and create a new window for the hopping around (click Control when you click on each link and it will open the link in a new window).


After you visit with me today, just click HERE to return you to the main list (and that is where the prizes are listed...hint!)

Have fun playing along with everyone!

Tiddly Inks - Wryn or my boo ;D
Did you know that Tiddly Inks - Wryn is loosely based on Chrisy's daughter? Our kids must look alike because this is a complete caricature of my Boo, straggly hair falling out of the pony tales and all. The only thing missing is her busily doodling away with crayons.

I used a sheet of chipboard that shipped with an online order and cut it with my SU Top Note die run through my Cuddle Bug Machine.

My project today is a chipboard mini album using my SU - Top Note die and Wryn of course. You know how I love the bright colours, so I dipped into my Echo Park - Splash collection again - it has served me so well.

Inspired by Julie Johnson of Paisley and Polkadots, I tried to make a bundled mini album that was busting with accents without looking messy. Check out her blog, her mini albums are so stinkin' creative.

These photos are varying ages of Princess-ness!

Lots of chipboard layers.
Also, some great news! As a special thank-you for stopping by today, Christy has donated Belinda (seen below) to one lucky commenter of this post. So please leave a comment on this post, include your email address for your chance to win. There are more single image prizes to be won, so check out ALL the DT members blogs or you'll miss out.
