The general theme for this hop is Christmas and what fun would a hop be without some new images?! Zoe has released some fabulous new holiday themed images and they are a must on anyone's holiday list - but the best part is you get 15% off ALL the Christmas digis from now until Sunday, October 2nd.

Before we get to the hop, there's more details and a surprise in order... Everyone in this blog hop is giving away Blog Candy!! Whoohoo!! You'll have two weeks, until October 12th, to visit each member in the hop below and winners will be announced on Friday, October 14th on their individual blogs. Feel free to grab the badge below and display it on your sidebar to spread the word about Zoe's Birthday and Blog Hop!

I'd ask if you're ready for some inspiration yet, but wait... we've got yet another surprise for you!! We contacted one of Zoe's artists (S.H.) who also wanted to participate and drew us this gorgeous party girl for the occasion. Thank you!!

This is "Party Girl Zoe" and isn't she ca-ute!




We wanted to make sure everyone was included in our celebration so we're giving away Party Girl Zoe as a freebie to everyone who wants to join in and spread some birthday cheer!! All you need to do is create a new project using a Make it Crafty image or chippies and upload it into the gallery HERE by October 12th. Then email Barbara, at ForgottenScraps@gmail.com with a link to your project to claim her!

I will be giving one lucky commenter this gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp, No you dont have to be a follower, but of course love to have you if you like what you see!



So dont forget to leave me a comment before you go.
I have a couple of projects to show you, first of all I made this card using some inspiration from the Whiff of Joy Tutorial blog.


That naughty little elf has only gone and lit the fuse.


and his poor little mate is off into space, well as far as the snowflake turning lets him go lol.

My next project was inspired by Jo at Ally Pally on sunday, where she reminded me of a technique 'caught in crystal' (which many moons ago we did with Klear floor Varnish - just a little bit sticky and smelly lol. Clear Laquer works soo much better. Thanks Jo.




I made my Caught in Crystal into a cracker and added one of the not soo naughty elves from the new Make It Crafty Christmas range.


Now you need to pop on over to Carole

We hope you've enjoyed the hop and make sure you head on over to Zoe's personal blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!
