Ketto Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog! 
This is the Stampng Bella Ketto Blog Hop. If this is your first stop, click here to begin your journey on the Stamping Bella Blog. If you started at Stamping Bella, you should have come to me from Paula. If not, click here to begin.

If you're like me, your crafting table is overflowing with things that need to be at hand just in case you need them! I have a desk caddy that holds pens, scissors, adhesives, etc. I needed a bit more tabletop storage, but I wanted something cute and me. So for this blog hop, I made my own caddy using my favorite Ketto, Wasabi:
I used a pail from Stampendous. I stamped Wasabi Ketto's Flowers on the background with Versamark, then embossed them with CTMH's Pansy Purple Embossing Powder. I added Lilac Shimmerz to the flower petals. I colored Wasabi Ketto with Copics and Copic Spicas. I added some bling to her kimono with Lilac Shimmerz, dabbed some Pearlescent Black chalk along the edges, then triple-matted her with CTMH Petal, Pansy Purple, and Black. On the back, I added a sentiment from CTMH's Kanji Phrases. I chose this particular phrase because stamping does, indeed, bring me much happiness! I adhered it all to the inside of the pail. Here's a view of the back:
On the outside, I added Prima Daisy Doodles, with Bella's Solid Black Dots as their centers. I tied a triple-layered bow of black, amethyst, and lavender silk ribbon. And just when I thought I was done, my sweet Bella Sistah, Janie, sent me some Lavender Colorbox Rhinestones. (Thank you, Janie!) They added the perfect final touch as the centers of my embossed flowers. 
So, can you tell that I love purple and bling, especially blingy purple? LOL

Now for some fun news! There's a prize hidden somewhere along the hop: a $40 gift voucher to Stamping Bella! One of the blogs along the hop has been chosen as the "prize" blog. The owner of this blog will randomly choose a winner from those who leave comments on her blog. So be sure to comment on every blog so that you have a chance to win! The winner will be announced on Monday. Good luck and Happy Hopping!

Click here to move on to Emily's blog, which is the next stop along the Ketto Blog Hop. Enjoy!

Wow Vicki, I love your Ketto container! What a fun idea to store your stuff. I may just have to make one for myself.

I don't own any of the Kettos yet, but I do have some Bellas. Those would be fun to use too.

Great job from one CTMH consultant to another!
