Gecko Galz Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

I want to welcome everyone to the Tenth destination of Gecko Galz 5th Annual Blog Hop.

If you started here you might want to go back and start at the beginning at the Gecko Galz blog so you won’t miss anything!

We have 14 AMAZING blogs for you to visit this weekend, each with some gorgeous projects created using the Gecko Galz exclusive blog hop collage sheets, that we are giving you for FREE! Each blog you visit will have another free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to grab, the one here is "REGENCY LIFE".


Here are my Gecko Galz projects, using images from the Regency Life sheet. First up is a card.

My second project is a journal page.

I used one of the images to make a Christmas card.

I added the images to small bottles.

Finally, I made an ATC.

Also make sure you collect all the “secret” words on each blog so at the end of the hop you can send in the phrase to enter our drawing for a wonderful treat. So sit back, relax, take your time and enjoy the hop!

We have FOUR amazing prizes up for grabs:

· First is a Gecko Galz shopping spree for $100!

· Second prize is a $50 Shopping spree with Gecko Galz.

· Third prize is a $25 shopping spree!

· And our Grand Prize ONE FULL YEAR of Gecko Galz PRODUCTS!!! This includes the 6 new collage sheets each quarter, a new stamp set each quarter, a new paper pack each quarter and a kit club pack each quarter! This is a $150 value! Plus you get a prize pack from some of our favorite sponsors worth $150!

Read on to learn how you can win!

First of all, you will need to visit all 14 blogs and leave a comment on each blog :) **This is important so we know you have been to all the blogs **. Collect all 14 words (one on each blog site except the home site) and at the end of the blog on the Fripperies and Butterflies site there will be a link to email the phrase to Gecko Galz.

This enters you in the contest. On November 2nd we will randomly draw the 4 winners and email each of you, then we will post the winning names on the Gecko Galz blog site.

For an extra chance to win, make a purchase from the GECKO GALZ ETSY STORE between the 29 of October and the 1st of November and your name goes in again for a better chance of winning (each purchase you make that weekend gives you another chance to win).

Your Secret Word is: MAKE
