Let's Play Hopscotch with Kiki Art!!!

Welcome to my first and KIKI ART's first Design Team Blog Hop... Kiki likes to call it a BLOG HOPSCOTCH; I love that name!!! :-)

When:  During National Scrapbook Day weekend, from Thursday, April 29th until Monday, May 3rd.

So do you wanna play??? Of course you do!!! :-)

You can start wherever you want, however, make sure to visit the blogs of all the talented design team members in 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, we created a project based on their organization featuring Kiki Art products. My organization is the Canadian Arthritis Society. As many of my closest friends and family know, I am challenged daily with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It is not a chronic disease of the elderly; it is a disease that affects the young and old.

As you hop from blog to blog, please take a moment to see each designer's cause. We also hope that you will be inspired by all of the gorgeous Kiki Art work. And importantly, we also hope you are inspired to do good by getting involved in an effort to create a better world through these organizations.

Now let's talk prizes...and there are 2 that are up for grabs...
For your chance to win a prize from the Kiki Art blog, 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! But...don't forget to pick me!!!!!!!! hee hee)

• How to get a prize from a Kiki Art design team member blog?

To win a prize from each Kiki Art design team member, leave a comment on each of our blog posts. We will each pick a random winner from all the comments. The winner will be posted on Tuesday May 4, 2010. So leave me lots of comments because I am in a super generous mood! *wink* *wink*

Here is my's a boxed mini album with a "dove/bird" theme because The Arthritis Soceity is represented by the dove. This adorable mini album is perfect for the upcoming Mothers Day and Fathers Day gift.
