Blog hop time again. Has anyone guessed yet, I just love participating in blog hops! Today’s blog hop involves members from the "Art with Heart" team which is managed by Claire Daly. Only a small number of us are participating in todays blog hop but there is actually over 90 demonstrators in the “Art with Heart” team and we are spread all over Australia. If you wish to join the “Art with Heart” team, e-mail me for more details. We have a fantastic team forum, a business building club not to mention lots of friendly and supportive fellow demonstrators.
The "Art with Heart" team are running blog hops each and every month. (They are to be held on the last day of the month.) Keep this in mind to come back and visit if you are not a regular visitor.
You may have just come from Kathryn Lowe's blog but if not, there is a link at the end of my post (and each post of those involved) and you will be able to make a complete journey to all of those demonstrators participating. If you leave a comment on all of the blogs, e-mail Nikki at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be in the draw to win some lovely blog candy.
Note: There is a deadline of 72 hours to enter for the blog candy, (finishing at 6am AEDST, Monday 3rd of May, 2010) and only non SU demos are eligible to win. Please don’t feel discouraged to comment if you are a fellow demo or if the blog candy contest has closed as I love comments from all my visitors.
For Art with Hearts fourth blog hop, we are celebrating the women in our lives. I originally had a mother's day layout planned (which wasn't finished) but then my eldest daughter said a little gem at the dinner table tonight which I thought captures the main women in my daughters day to day life. Her prep teacher and myself.
The style of this scrapbook layout is called a progressive layout. It begins as a 6" x 6" page and then you add to it to create a 8.5" x 11" and again onto a 12" x 12" page. However, I only took mine up to a 8.5" x 11" page.
6" x 6" page: A drawing of myself and my daughter. She took great care with it including coming to check my eye colour before drawing. Hand stitching reads "Mum and me" which Nikki wrote out for me before bed.
8.5" x 11" page: Added a few more layers and colours of cardstock including the journaling where Nikki called me Miss Bennett (her teacher, Miss Mum and finally Mum.
Cardstock: Summer sun, pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, whisper white, basic black
Accessories: Pink flamingo designer series paper
Other: DMC cotton, sewing machine cotton
Take your time to enjoy all of the lovely creations that everyone has created for your viewing pleasure. I hope it is an inspirational journey for you.

I am including a list of all the lovely other 13 demonstrators participating in the blog hop so if you run into any trouble viewing pages, you can still move onto the next person.
For those who have never viewed a blog hop before, there is no beginning or end, it is a full circle so you can begin anywhere!
