Scrappers Delight first blog hop................plus i have some candy to giveaway.....

                                              
and hellooooo my friends old and new.....
The time is upon us for Scrappers Delight first ever Easter Blog Hop in celebration of our first Birthday, i sure hope you will help us celebrate by joining in the fun and collecting the eggs that the Easter Bunny has dropped!
We have put together some scrumdiddleyumptious  "International Candy" for 2 lucky winners and we also have one chocolate treat for a third lucky winner!
Check out the main blog for the pictures of the candy.
You should have arrived here from Rebeccas blog if so you are on the right path, if not please click on the link Scrappers Delight  to start at the beginning as we'd hate you to miss out any letters.
**To be in with a chance of winning our blog candy, once you have collected all the letters from the eggs during the hop, please unscramble them to reveal a childrens character and to be in with a chance of winning the scrumdiddleyumptious easter egg - work out which book/film this character appears in. Then post your answers in the comment section of our main Scrappers Delight blog**
The hop will close on 4th April 2010 and the winners will be announced on 5th April 2010.
Here is my project to hopefully give you some inspiration along the way thank you to Stephanie for the great tutorial she is totally inspirational....

 I am calling it "Spring in a teacup" and i have used my much loved hatpins and Cosmo Cricket pretty papers.
Making the paper Roses brought back so many happy memories of my much loved Gran and Di who when we where little would get us to stand up and sing the song "Paper Roses" by the door and then would throw bright shiny copper pennies when we had finished..sadly they passed away when i was very young but there love lives on snug in my heart and memories and  looking at this little teacup reminds me of the happy times we had!!
 I hope you are inspired by my project and are enjoying the blog hop so far, when you are ready please hop over to Jasmine`s blog  and continue the fun.
Pssssttttt before you head away... as a little extra i have put together a little candy with my fav Cosmo Cricket goodies for one lucky person who leaves me a comment and becomes a follower..if you are already a follower thank you from the heart and i will enter your name twice as a thankyou,at the end of the hop i will pop the names into a pot and randomly pick a winner...here is a picture of my candy for the winner on my blog...
It includes:
1x Love Banner

1x Chipboard picture frame
6x Die cut sheets
6x pretty papers
6x Alphabet sheets

1x Little heart and home wooden sign
Also a little runner up prize and if you know me you know hearts are my thing soooo...the runner up prize is...

All that i have left to say is i hope you enjoy the hop and get inspired and thankyou from the heart for joining in  and keeping with this very looooong post,lol, so here are the eggs the Easter Bunny dropped....
