Peek-a-Boo Bunny Bunting And A Candy Overload!!! Dontcha Know It's Easter and We're Hopping!!!!

Boo!!! Yep it's me again with my second post of the morning. This time it's to show you my Easter bunting and tell you about this weeks challenge over on the Polka Doodles Blog which is........ EASTER :D You may want to grab a coffee and some cake as this is an uber long post with more than it's fair share of piccies ;D

If you're taking part in the Polka Doodles Blog Hop then you should've arrived here from Ruth's blog.
The bunting was made using pre-cut flags which have simply been covered with some yummy papers from the new Polka Doodles CD Sugarplum Daisy.
 I used the letters from the word book Template on the Candy Doodles Collectors Edition.
To give them some depth and dimension I ran an embossing tool around the edges and then added some Glossy Accents.
 The bunnies are also from the Sugarplum Daisy CD
 I've simply flipped them around in a graphics programme to get them facing in different directions.
Then they've been cut so that they are peeking out from behind the letters.
Anyway, if you're still here, I think I'd better get onto the important stuff - The Challenge.......This week its going to be a bit different - we still have our regular challenge but we also have a blog hop which is also part of the challenge!! And you know what that means - LOADS of candy!! 

CHALLENGE STAGE 1: Now, we know that not everyone likes to do a hop for whatever reason, so we still have our normal challenge for the week which is EASTER themed - you must make a card or project which is Easter themed.

But that's not all...
CHALLENGE STAGE 2: Our second challenge is the blog hop - if you hop along with us this week you will find that the Easter Bunny has arrived early and left some hidden goodies on some of the Design Teams blogs - but you have to hop though the whole list to find who the Easter Bunny has visited! 
You need to complete both the Easter themed challenge and the blog hop to be in with a chance of winning one of the fantastic prizes on offer! You need to go to the challenge blog to see what is on offer but it is fabulous! There will be one grand prize winner and two second place winners!

If you've never taken part in a blog hop before it's easy peasy...all you need to do is visit each blog in turn and for this hop each Polkadoodler will give you a LETTER (be careful - some of the Polkadoodlers may have more than one!) Now add all the letters together, unscramble them and leave a comment on the Polkadoodle Challenge Blog (comments will be moderated!) with what the word is.

Your entry will automatically be judged for the Easter themed challenge BUT we will know if you have completed the Blog Hop so if you haven't you will still only be eligible for the random blog candy hidden amongst some of the Polkadoodlers. FOR THE EASTER THEMED CHALLENGE JUST LEAVE YOUR ENTRY AS NORMAL USING THE INLINKZ BUTTON, WE WILL SORT THROUGH THE ENTRIES AS WE WILL KNOW IF YOU FOLLOWED THE HOP OR NOT! ; )

If you have arrived at my blog from Ruth's Blog then you are on the right track! The letter you require from me is A  and the second letter is Y. Keep them safe and now hop onto the Polkadoodle Challenge Blog and leave a comment. If you get stuck, please go back to the Polkadoodle Challenge blog where you will find the full list of Polkadoodlers.
Good luck!
