Hello Everyone!

At last, it's here!!




I have a little give away ... but,  you'll have to read through to the end to find out how you can win one of my projects and a few extra goodies :)

We want to welcome everyone to the
Gecko Galz 7th Annual Blog Hop

This is your eighth stop on our Tricks and Treats Blog Hop
We have 13 AMAZING blogs for you to visit this weekend, each with some gorgeous projects created using the Gecko Galz collage sheets that we are giving you for FREE! Each blog you visit will have another free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to download, the one here is
"Ain't She Cute".

Also make sure you leave a message on each blog site you visit and on the last blog there will be a phrase that you will email to us to be entered in our drawing for a wonderful treat pack.  So sit back, relax, take your time and enjoy the hop!

We have FOUR amazing prizes up for grabs:
·        First is a Gecko Galz shopping spree for $100!
·        Second prize is a $50 Shopping spree with Gecko Galz.
·        Third prize is a $25 shopping spree!
·        And our Grand Prize ONE FULL YEAR of Gecko Galz PRODUCTS!!! This includes the 6 new collage sheets each quarter, a new stamp set each quarter, 2 new paper packs each quarter, a journal kit each quarter, a ATC collection each quarter, and one jewel it collection!
 This is a $176 value!

First of all, you will need to visit all 13 blogs and leave a comment on each blog :) **This is important so we know you have been to all the blogs **.   Collect the phrase at the end of the hop on the Fripperies and Butterflies site there will be a link to email the phrase to Gecko Galz at geckogalz2014@gmail.com.
This enters you in the contest. On October 31st we will randomly draw the 4 winners and email each of you, then we will post the winning names on the Gecko Galz blog site.

For an extra chance to win make a purchase from the GECKO GALZ ETSY STORE between the 26th of October and the 30th of October and your name goes in again for a better chance of winning (each purchase you make that weekend gives you another chance to win) 

Before I get to my samples, let me tell you that I'm on holiday this week, so all of my posts have been scheduled. Hopefully I'll be able to snag some free wi-fi when we're out and about and off the ship, so I'll do my best to visit everyone! If I can't, then I promise to catch up with all the lovely Gecko Galz DT ladies when I get home! 

Here are some samples I made using the free Ain't She Cute collage sheet which you'll find below. I managed to use all of the images in m projects:

Papier mache trinket box coated in gold paint and decorated with gathered lace, oval die cut paper (called Afternoon Tea) from the Solarium paper pack and a string of mini pearls. The butterflies are from the Provence Garden collage sheet.



***
MDF photo frame covered with Paper 6 from the Timeless mini paper pack and sanded around the edges. Die cut flowers made from the same paper with inked edges and jumbo pearls added for the centres.



***
Cherish card - papers from Star Crossed paper pack and sentiments from Charming Words collage sheet. Finished with shop bought flowers and die cut and inked leaves.



***
Roses - Timeless paper pack (paper 6) and rose border from Parisian Garden Digi Kit. Some roses fussy cut, shaped and decoupaged for dimension. Sentiment from Charming Words collage sheet. Finished with a triple organza bow.

A trio of ATCs. Background created with Sunlight paper from the Solarium paper pack and tape measures from the free September newsletter collage sheet.
Sentiments from the Charming Words collage sheet. Butterfly wings from Butterfly Wings collage sheet and butterflies from Provence Garden  collage sheet.
