And now onto our birthday blog hop

If you've never taken part in a blog hop before it's easy peasy...all you need to do is visit each of the design team’s blogs, on each blog there will be a letter to collect, write the letters down as you go, and at the end re-arrange them into a two word phrase, come back to the Teddy Bo challenge blog and leave a comment containing the phrase. (Comments will be hidden for the duration of the blog hop).

The Blog hop will run until Monday 23rd January Noon GMT, winners will be randomly drawn from the comments containing the correct phrase.
Winners will be announced on Tuesday 24th January.

Each stop along the way has blog candy, become a follower at their blog and on the Teddy Bo & Co blogs if you've not already done so and leave a comment on each of the Design Team posts in the hop to be in with a chance of winning a Teddy Bo and Co digital graphic of your choice.

The list for the hop is:

Teddy Bo Challenge Blog

(Thank you to Colette for organising this and for writing up the idiots guide to Blog Hopping for me....this BOOK is available to buy at all good retailers or online at Amazon!!)

Some of you might have noticed (if you're still reading) that Edna is no longer mentioned on the blog....sadly she has had to step down...hopefully not permanently...due to extreme discomfort when she's pole dancing...I mean crafting!!!  In the meantime we have a new victim girl joining us...she'll be along on Friday....xx  We miss you Edna...it really isn't quite the same without you (although the downstairs toilet has been fixed...yeeeha!!!) and the builders are returning tomorrow to fix the banister....AGAIN!!!

So...once again thank you Blogland for finding a little place in your heart for Teddy Bo & Co......thank you from me...and thank you from the bears.....(they made me say it!!lol)  We're having a ball at Teddy Bo Towers....xxxxx  And remember...just another 2 days until D'Arcy's Diaries opens...x

Catch you tomorrow with the winners from last week's challenge..x
