Flourish With a Bling BLOG HOP!!!

Hello Hoppers!
I hope you've been having a fabulous time getting to know some of our wonderful FWAB Design Team members and gaining lots of inspiration on how to put your FWAB to good use. Haven't the projects you've seen so far been amazing?!

You should have arrived here from the talented Kate McCulloch's blog. But just in case you stumbled here by chance then I suggest you head back to the FWAB blog to begin your hop. Not only is there one huge grand prize up for grabs but there are plenty of other RAK's along the way too.
In case you get lost, here's the Blog Hop order:

We've had a lot of exciting changes over the last year at FWAB, like a new Design Team, some stunning new products and the latest (and biggest change) is FWAB going retail! That means you can buy all your favourite bling straight from the FWAB store iteself!!


I've once been called the "Queen of Pearls" and it's no secret that some of my favourite FWAB products are their adhesive pearls and rhinestones. For my blog hop project I really wanted to highlight them, so I gathered up every packet I had and used every single one of them on my page!!


To make them line up neatly on my layout I used a Studio Calico stencil as my guide. The pearls fit nicely in the gaps and then it was easy to make this pattern appear!


Plus, all that bling was perfect for this page about my daughter dressed as a Princess discovering 'treasure'!


Your next stop on the Blog Hop is the fabulous Sandi Smith. I just know you're going to love what she's created. And don't forget to follow the hop all the way back to the FWAB blog to leave a comment for your chance to win the grand prize.

But before you go you can also win a little something from me by leaving a comment on this post. I wish I could say I was giving away some Pearls and Rhinestones, but as you just heard.. I've already cracked into every single packet I own. Instead I'm giving away these; a black Jack's Vine, and Trent's Fence.


I'll be drawing a winner next week on the 19th.
Good luck and Happy Hopping
