Quixotic Paperie 1st Anniversary Blog Hop!

Today marks the 1st anniversary for Quixotic Paperie!  We're having a celebratory blog hop and it starts here!

Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her - so, Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles 'n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more!

In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!

In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.

It has been a fabulous and wonderfully crafty year and here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow!
 
On today's hop, the Quixotic Paperie Design Team and I have been joined by some fantastic crafty friends.  A big thank you to each and every one of you for your support and for joining in today!
 
******************************************************
 
As if the hop wasn't enough excitement for you, there are THREE prizes up for grabs! Winners will be drawn randomly from comments left throughout the hop, so make sure you comment on all the posts to be in with a chance of winning!

The three prizes are all worth around £50, and will include a surprise mix of rubber stamps and other goodies available at Quixotic Paperie.

The prize draw will take place on Sunday 6th June, and winners will be announced that evening.

And now, time to GET HOPPING!!!!  Your next stop on the hop is KIM DELLOW! 
 
Here's the hop order, just in case you get lost along the way!

Phew! Quite the line up!  Hope you enjoy all the wonderful projects!
