We are InStyle for another BLOG HOP!

Yes it is time again for another InStyle Blog Hop!! And this week the DT have been "contained"!! We were all asked to make some sort of container... but before that here are the details about the Blog Hop -

Chatting will start on the InStyle Stamps forum at 11:30am EST, and will stay open until 11pm EST (or as long as people want to chat). Link for the forum:

And here are the other important details :0)

1. The blog hop will run from 12pm EST to 11pm EST on the ISS forum (see link above). There will be mini contests with prizes throughout the day on the blog hop thread on the forum.

2. If you could please visit the ISS blog to vote for their favorite DT project, the designer of the project with the most votes will win a prize. No pressure to vote for me... but I would just love to win!! LOL

3. After you vote, they will need to leave a comment on the ISS blog post with the poll on it in order to be entered to win the grand prize for the customers. Yes, this is where you get the chance to win... and we love prizes that say GRAND PRIZE... and I would love for it to be YOU.. one of my readers ;0) The polling system we use doesn't keep track of who did the voting, so if they don't post a comment, they won't be in the drawing. (it really isn't complicated, you'll see when you get there)

4. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 25th, and that the winners will be announced on Sunday, April 26th.

Here's the links to all of the DT, the blog and the main website:

Now for my Container.. (that you are going to run over to the ISS site and vote for wink wink LOL)

I really didn't know what I wanted to do... I was going back and forth on a few things.. then everything just came together... First I found the cute white enamel bucket/basket - on sale! And the very next place I found this adorable bath set.. on sale too! And the wording on the bath set were just perfect for one of my favorite ISS images - Sheree !
I colored her with my copics and LOTS of Stickles for bubbles! Cut it out with my Nestibilities inked the edges. I ran one piece of pattern paper across the bucket, and then put the oval on as well. My flowers are white flowers that I colored with my Air Compressor and my Copics. Love that they can match so well that way. I added a sentiment of "ENJOY" with my label maker, and a ribbon that matched to perfectly with my colors.

A close up of the goodies... A bottle of Vanilla lotion, two fun packages of bubble bath, a envelope of bath salts and of course a little rubber duckie!
Look how fun the packages are of the bubble bath... they are made to hang - I forgot to take a photo of the bath salts... it reads "Women are like tea bags they don't know how strong they are until they get into Hot Water" I love that! May have to use that on a card one day!
Ok that is my container... I do really hope you will join in on the HOP.. and follow all the links to see the other DT creations... and if you happen to vote for me... THANKS!!!
HUGS and -
