Take a Hop Through the Dollhouse!

The Design Dollies invite you to "Hop through the Dollhouse!" Join the Dollies for their first ever Blog Hop, celebrating the unique individuals that make up this dynamic team of Dolls!

If you've arrived from Chiqui's blog, then you're on the right track. If you've come across the hop by accident, you can join in by starting at the beginning at The Dollhouse and hopping to each blog in order.

You can read the bio's of the original Dollies and the current Design Team over at the Design Dollies Blog, where there are lots of fun facts, stats and trivia. You can get to know us a little better this weekend by visiting our personal blogs and checking out our "Getting to Know You" projects.

Here's mine:

Paper: Jenni Bowlin
Alphas: American Crafts
Rub-on: Basic Grey
Glitter: Pink Paislee
I can remember my first kiss like it happened yesterday. I LOVE office supplies. I'm addicted to chocolate and reality television. Music has helped me through the tough times in my life. I milk my birthday for the entire month. I love the color black. I always sleep great on the couch. I like to eat cake for breakfast. I want to own my own business some day.

To begin your hop, start here at the
2. Then, take a gander at our founding Dollie’s
Corner of the Studio.
3. Make sure you take out your
Scissors, Paper and Pen for this DT's inspiration!
4. Next, head to the
Land Down Under for another creative (and peaceful!) visit!
5. And THEN, prepare yourself for some cutting edge
Nerd Scrap motivation!
6. After which, prepare yourself for
The Chronicles of Orange...
7. Once you’re ready, check out amazing
Snapshots of a Dollie's Life.
8. And try some
Tatar Salad {You Are Here} while you're at it
9. Before you encounter the glam that is
SO glam she sweats glitter
10. Wrap up your Dollhouse tour with some literary inspiration ala
Jane Austen style!

All the dolls thought it would be super fun to share a bit more about ourselves so we could all get to know each other a little better. I added some random facts about myself to my "Getting to Know You" layout. I also used my favorite color, black, and added some bling, which is always a must have! I hope you've enjoyed reading a little more about me.

If you take a glance at the Design Dollies title bar, you’ll notice that the Dollhouse has a HUGE variety of personalities, talents, and areas of interest represented just by our Dollie selection! Each Dollie pictured was selected to represent each Dollie at his or her finest. As a thank you for joining in the blog hop and visiting my blog, I'm offering a little prize! All you need to do is to leave a comment on this post, telling me which of the Dolllies on the Design Dollies header you think is mine. (I've numbered the Dollies to make selecting a Dollie easier. Please click to enlarge.) Everyone who guesses correctly will go into my draw. I'll announce the winner here on Tuesday, or you can check the Design Dollies Blog where all the lucky winners from this hop will be posted.

Blog candy: 2 packages of Tim Holtz Grungeboard and 2 Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. If you've never tried Tim Holtz products before, you are going to LOVE them!

    Love the layout and I think you are dollie #2 - at least I think that's a 2, I can't seem to enlarge your picture - the dollie in black and white with the funky sunglasses. She seems to match your layout best. Off to hop some more - thanks for the fun!

  20. he he... love your facts... we have a lot in common!! I'm guessing #2 with the sunglasses... Robin

  21. Hi! Love the paper selected for your LO!
    My guess is that you are the doll #5, the one with the yellow dress, since I remember this doll previous july!!

  22. Oh, I'm going to have to say that you are Dollie #2, and I really hope I'm right because I love Tim Holtz stuff and I'd really like a chance to win!

  23. Hi Dana! Love your LO - very cool!
    The image won't let me enlarge - so can't really see the numbers - but I'm gonna guess the toon girl with the brown bob and white dress. I'm thinking she's #7 - or at least 7th from the left.
