CASE Study 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

London Calling
Hey!

Happy Monday! Happy Birthday, CASE Study! Yup, can you believe it? CASE Study is turning 3 already! The years have flown by for me, and it's such an honour and privilege to have served on the design team from the start. I owe so much to the wonderful and marvellous Chupa - thanks girlie! :)


You may have noticed that CASE Study is celebrating its birthday with a series of mega blog hops featuring some pretty mega names. Today marks the 3rd and final hop, be sure to comment along the way to be in with a chance of winning some amazing goodies! *wink*

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Torico. If you haven't, then you wanna start out over at CASE Study.

The idea of this hop, echoes the idea of CASE Study. We were simply given the brief to be inspired by something and go with the creative flow. Seeing as I'm a little bit of a Pinterest-a-holic I thought it was about time I actually used something that I've pinned to my 'Inspiration' board. Hmmm...decisions, decision.....!

It was a tough call, but this pin caught my attention for a special reason...



As soon as I saw this lovely print, I just knew I had to crack open my cool London Scene dies and get busy. As you can tell, I kept the design very simple and similar to the art print. Only my version contains not a Ferris wheel, but the London Eye and 'The Gherkin'.

Another special reason as to why I picked this inspiration point and created this card is because I'm actually heading to London today. I'm so excited as I'm meeting up with fabulous blog buddies, Lynn and Sandie to 'do lunch' and shop! I can't wait! :D

But enough babbling from me, you need to hop along to my CASE Study teamie, Teneale Williams! Remember to comment as you hop for the chance to win some fabby prizes!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and happy birthday, CASE Study!!! :D

I am having difficulties guessing which was cased from which :P

whether you've cased the art print ferris wheel or vice-versa

Such a simple and beautiful take. I'm glad I came this far on the hop! And from the comments it looks like its your birthday today. So, happy birthday Aimes!

Vithya
