ABC Challenge & Blog HOP!

It's time for another Challenge at Creative Accents and we're kicking it off with a BLOG HOP! We've got a talented group of ladies who will be sharing with you their creations for the ABC Challenge.

The challenge is fairly simple! Create any paper based project and include:
A- Alphabet (letters or words in any form)
B- Bling (pearls or gems and other blingy things)
C- Chipboard (letters, shapes, or whatever you've got in your stash)

Your project can be any theme, but if you want 'extra credit' make it an Autumn or Halloween project :)

This challenge is open to participants until October 15 at midnight. You can enter using the inlinkz gadget at the bottom of this post (if it's not there yet, it will be soon!) and/or by bringing your project in to display in the store! The prize (randomly chosen from all challenge participants) will be a surprise package of goodies from all of our ABC categories worth at least $30!

We'll also be selecting another random winner from those who:
  1. comment on posts along the hop and
  2. are a follower of Creative Accents' blog
You do not have to comment on every post along the way, but this will increase your chances of winning a surprise ABC gift worth at least $15!

Now that we have the challenge details out of the way... let's see what everyone has for you! Here's who you'll be hopping to visit today! (Just stop back here if you get lost along the way...)

Here's my ABC creation. It's a simple card, inspired by some of my favourite things: autumn, friends & books...
I used a fabulous stack of book stamps by Stamping Bella, Nesting dies by Spellbinders & QuicKutz, the friendship background stamp by Hero Arts, papers by Cosmo Cricket & American Crafts, a chipboard flourish by Making Memories & pearls by Prima. Of course, there's Distress Ink & Copic Markers on there, too :)

Here's how it fits the challenge:
A- alphabet (quote on the stack of books & background stamp)
B- bling (glitter on the flourish, pearls & though you can't see in this photo, spica markers on the image)
C- chipboard (flourish by Making Memories)

Hope you like it and are inspired to take the challenge! Thanks for visiting, now hop on over to the fabulously talented CHERI !
