Lil Lolita Boutique 1st Challenge Blog Hop!!!

I am SO excited for today! It's the kick off to the challenges over at Lil Lolita Boutique & the DT is celebrating with a fun blog hop for you!! If you've come from Bron's Blog - you are in the right place - if you just happened upon my blog b/c you luv me (giggle) then please, I insist you go back to Lil Lolita Boutique to start at the top - you are NOT going to want to miss out on what the DT has been up to this week! Let me tell you, I'm extremely honored to be part of this DT - they are so awesome, so inspiring and just so much fun.
The first challenge is SUPER easy - ANYTHING GOES!!! Just grab your favorite Lil Lolita (if you can possibly pick just ONE) and ink her up. You can make anything, a card, a 3d altered item, anything goes! For my card, I used the purrr-fectly cute Evie! Isn't she a doll, I just think she looks so coy in her little cat costume! I had a blast coloring her with copics & layering her on some fabulous October Afternoon papers.
Now, for some fun, somewhere along the hop, there are FIVE hidden prizes! I don't know where they are, but in order to be entered to win, make sure you leave some love for everyone along the way. I love to read your comments & even more I love to check out your blog & leave some love back but I won't know if you visited unless you do!!!
Now, for your next stop, head on over to Jackie's Blog for some more fabulous inspiration! I look forward to checking out all your entries in this week's first Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge!!!
