Cupcake Inspirations 200th Challenge & Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cupcake Inspirations 200th Challenge blog hop and celebration! You should have arrived here from the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog. If you happen to get lost along the way, please remember that you can always scoot on back to the CIC blog to find a complete list of blogs in the hop.

You are in for a treat today! To thank you for celebrating with us, the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge team and partners are offering two ways to win fabulous prizes. Read on for all of the details.

The First Way to Win - Participate in the Challenge at the CIC Blog

Win the grand prize valued at over $200 for playing along in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #200 - Pick Your Favorite Challenge. Visit the Cupcake Inspirations Blog for all of the details.

 To join in the challenge, you'll be selecting your favorite past Cupcake Inspirations Photo and making a creation based on it. I picked my favorite photo from challenge #100, shown above.

Then I made the card shown above based on the inspiration photo, using several products from the Echo Park Summer Days collection. It's that easy, friends!

Like the Spring feel in colors & the 3D dimension look to this. My daughter likes roller coasters. Last mth I went to DisneyLand and rode the Indiana Jones ride that is somewhat of a roller coaster ride, in a jeep vehicle and it was jerky at times but fun.
