Carnival Blog Hop

Clowns, cotton candy, sticky fingers, squeals of delight and of course complaints of sore feet near the end of the day... Where are we?

THE CARNIVAL!!

Hopefully you have just hopped on over from Pat's Blog. If you just popped on by to say g’day and want to join us on the super carnival hop then you’ll want to ‘START HERE’ at Jak's Blog.

Kat and Carnival
Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.

I merged the two together in Photoshop Elements.  Then I colored the entire image with Copics.

Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is!

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!

Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)

We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!

 My letter for the hop is E.


Make sure you leave a comment for a ‘possible’ chance at winning some hidden treasure
and then your next stop on the hop is Elaine.

Lastly,  Mo has created this adorable image.. It is available during the hop for $1..ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE CHILDREN'S MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION.  This is an organization that is near and dear to my heart.  So hurry over and get your image.
