Hopscotch Kiki Art Style!!!

Welcome to our first KIKI ART Design Team Blog Hop... however, we'd like to call it a HOPSCOTCH!

It will run from Today, Thursday, April 29th until Monday, May 3rd.

How do you play you ask?
You can start wherever you want, however, make sure to visit the blogs of our talented design team members. Also, please make sure to visit the Kiki Art blogs (English, French, and Spanish) to be eligible to win.

Each design team member was asked to select an organization that commits to helping others. Then, they created a project based on their organization featuring Kiki Art products. Make sure to take note of each organization/good cause each DT member has selected.

When you hop from blog to blog, hopefully you will get inspired by all of the beautiful Kiki Art work. We also hope that you are inspired to do good by getting involved in an effort to create a better world through these organizations. AND PLEASE go to the Kiki blog and check out the links for the Spanish and French teams, too! {This means you have triple the chances to win, so feel free to “hop” to the other two}.

How to get a prize from the Kiki Art blog?
For your chance to win, you need to leave a comment on the Kiki Art blog letting us know which one(s) was/were your favorite blog(s) during our blog hop and what organization was displayed on that blog. (Don't limit yourself! You can choose as many blogs as you want!). Some of the girls will be giving away their own prizes on their blogs, too, so make sure you hit all of them.

So stay tune for MOnday, May 4th when winners will be announced. Let the BLOG HOPSCOTCH begin!!! Get inspired and enjoy! International bloggers are welcome, too!

Here is my project!!! I chose Earth Day and in honour of Earth Day, I am giving this project away today! I recycled a tin with 4 gift cards. Make sure you leave a comment here and tell me what you did on Earth Day to make a change in your life to help the environment.

And don't forget the RAK in my previous post, too! ;)

Kiki Art glitter hearts are the bomb. You get an entire 12x12 sheet of them in rainbow assorted colours!!! And this paper is flocked...so pretty!



I ran the scraps of Core'dinations through my Cuttlebug so you can cut out your own sentiment. I used every bit-o-scrap! The cellophane is recycled, too.

Fabulous giveaway! And Really, when you think about it, this is likely the greatest cause of all. No Earth, no us, or anything else!

Your project is so darling! Love it! The Earth does need to be protected--I wish more people realized that!

marcibun said...

Ellen, fabulous idea! I love that you made a tin to put the matching cards in - and great cause you picked, everyone needs to be a little more aware of the planet and stop pretending things are okay.
