Child's Play Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Child's Play Challenges first ever Blog Hop!! We're so excited to have you here, and hope you enjoy visiting the Design Team and seeing all the great inspiration they have to share with you! Our hop is based on a favorite book/toy/movie etc. Super fun, right?? We also have a fabulous gift for one lucky hopper, here's what you need to do to enter:

1-check out each blog along the hop and leave a comment
2-post about the hop on your blog
3-link your post on our special "Blog Hop" linky in the sidebar
4-BONUS!! create a layout based on any of the DTs inspiration items and post that link for a second entry!!

For my creation today, I chose to do a layout based on one of my favorite childhood toys... a PINWHEEL!! Here's my inspiration photo:

Here's my layout. I used pinwheels on my layout through out the page, they made great and fun embellishments....
Here is a close up of the pinwheel embellishments I made:
Here is my journaling:
"Happy Days are full of smiles, sunshine, pinwheels, strawberries, and love"
I used the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line for this page.
Now, to make sure you're on the right track - If you came here from Monique's blog, then you're on the right track!! If not, be sure and start off at Tiffany's blog where you will be inspired by her favorite spring time toy, the soccer ball!
Your next stop, is the very talented Karen Williams who is using Mr Bumps as her inspiration!!
