Let’s get in the mood to celebrate Easter! You’ll be seeing a lot of great Easter and Spring themed projects today!

What would a Blog Hop be without fun and prizes?

We have a little surprise for everyone who participates in our hop this weekend! Michelle has created the Easter digi set that has not been released yet (seen above) that 4 of Hoppers will be eligible to win by just answering all 4 of our Easter trivia questions along the hop route! Four of our DT ladies have been chosen to be our “secret bunnies” that will be giving away the Easter set along the hop and will be posting their trivia question with their blog hop post and all you have to do to enter to win the Easter digi set is to answer all 4 questions correctly, so good luck and have fun and don’t forget to comment on all of our blog hop posts!

Here’s the blog hop order:

and here’s the rest of the order:
Andrea <——–YOU ARE HERE

EMAIL ME with the answer to my trivia question:

” Who co-starred with Judy Garland in the movie Easter Parade?”

Now let’s get inspired! I created a couple of cards with Michelle’s newest images. I used Spring colors with some fun Easter ribbon that I picked up just for this occasion! I hope you like them.

Today we have a blog hop to say goodbye to some of our Mermaids that will be leaving our team after 6 fantastic months.

Jan, Tammy, Melissa, Marilyn and Margie

will be leaving us and with this Blog Hop we want to thank them for all the fantastic work they did!

Shelley, Claire, Mari, Marion, Pauline and I

So if you would like to join our team… go to the last blog from the hop and enter in the DT Call there.

For now… enjoy the blog hop!

I do LOVE the holidays! My Mom was a huge fan of Christmas – just EVERYTHING about it! She would decorate and make it so special for everyone around her that you couldn’t help but put your troubles aside. My love of the holidays is inspired by her, a true believer that life is so precious and should not be wasted. Be happy, have joy and celebrate!

If you started here at my blog, just keep hopping along until you’ve reached every blog.

Michelle’s personal blog (the 1st in the list below) has a question on it. You’ll need to collect letters from 6 blogs to unscramble for the answer. My letter is “O. The first correct answer that contacts Michelle will win Missy the Mistletoe Pixie!
