SCACD teams up with QP for VIVA Fun!

Welcome to
the SCACD and
Quixotic Paperie
VIVA DECOR Blog Hop!

Quixotic Paperie owned by the Fabulous Elaine and our Susana of SCACD have been partnering on efforts behind the scenes such that they consider each other International Sister Stores. They are combining efforts on certain mutual adventures starting with this awesome Viva Blog Hop which of course involves Yummy Candy!!  So make sure you stop at BOTH store Blogs -->SCACD HERE--< and -->Quixotic Paperie HERE<--

You will have a chance to win a set of 3 of the most popular Pens - (Ice White Pearl pen, Holographic Glitter pen and the Clear Gloss gel pen). So each Store Blog will offer up one chance to win the set. How Yummy is that?!!  The candy will run thru the 31st.   All you have to do is answer a question at each store blog - 1 entry at each STORE blog per person please! 

If you are here from amazing Lori's Blog then you are in the right spot!  If not, please start at the the Quixotic Paperie Blog so that you don't miss any fabulous stops along the hop path!
I'm so excited to bring you some fun creations using the VIVA DECOR Pearl Pens (found at Quixotic Paperie for our international friends)!!!  My projects show that you can use Viva Decor not only on paper but also on MANY different surfaces...think metal, glass, wood, etc.  This is a little notebook and watering can (filled with yummy chocolates!) that I've decked out with Viva!  Can you tell I love my Viva Pens?!!
The watering can was decorated using Basic Grey papers (Basic Grey can also be found at Quixotic Paperie for our international friends).  The watering can was a clearance buy on one of my shopping excursions a while ago...I just had to have it and it did come in handy with this project!
Around my MS punched border I took out my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen (Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen is also available at Quixotic Paperie for our international friends) and used it to put the centers in the flowers.  I really love how with these pearl pens you can customize any size pearl that you need (I know I say this all of the time...but it's the absolutely truth!!)  These pens come in MANY fun colors too!  And you definitely get a lot for the price that you pay...the bottles are huge......it's a great deal!!!
Next is this fun notebook that I found in the dollar spot on day at Michales during one of my shopping trips.  It's able to hold a photo but I thought the Watering Can (which only comes as a BONUS when you purchase the Hearts & Hugs Summer Collection by Victoria Case for SCACD......exclusive SCACD stamps are also available at Quixotic Paperie for our international friends) was the perfect image to use here.
The Watering Can was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with my Copics.
Here I have used my Viva Decor Lilac Pearl Pen (also available here at Quixotic Paperie) to create my own flourish coming off of this fun button.  It really is so wonderful how the Viva products can be used on any type of surface!
And of course one more angle pic so you can see the side of the notebook that also comes with it's own pen!

I hope you have enjoyed my Viva creations!  Your next stop is over at the wonderful and ultimately talented Carolyn's Blog....I know she has a fantastic creation to share with you!  Hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!

BUT...before I go, I'd like to share some  more CANDY NEWS with you....if you thought today was sweet, make sure you head over to the SCACD Store Blog on Sunday the 25th for the chance to win some MORE CANDY.....EEK I am gonna faint from all the excitement!!! :)

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥
