Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses Blog Hop


We are so excited to bring you this fun blog hop featuring some Derby Themed projects. Especially to one of our Hosts... Rhonda, because this event takes place in her hometown!!

We hope you will enjoy your time as you hop and that you feel
inspired to create some Derby Fun!

The Kentucky Derby, which first ran in 1875, is best known for the Horses, Kentucky Bourbon and the beautiful Derby Hats that are worn and takes place every year, the first Saturday in MAY. It is a two week long event... Imagine Mardi Gras to New Orleans if you will! It all starts with a kick off... THUNDER OVER LOUISVILLE, the biggest firework show in North America. In those two weeks there are many events that take place and many STARS visit and attend these events... a lot are fund raising events for some great charities. In addition to DERBY PARTIES folks here have at home!

I took the part about derby hats and ran with it. I used the cutting file "Leprechaun mini bowler hat box"from Snapdragon Snippets and turned it into my Run for the Roses Derby hat. As you can see this cute hat is also a box to store some yummy goodies in.

Thanks for stopping and looking and continue reading for a chance to win some goodies and to find the line up.

Now... if you'd like to be a LUCKY Winner of some goodies... please visit each designers blog and become a follower, leave a comment! Winner will be chosen and announced May 9th!

The complete line up is below and again THANKS for joining us!!!...
