Telephone Blog Hop

Welcome to Made Especially For You's 
Telephone Blog Hop!

If you've never heard of the "Telephone" game it's a game most often played by kids that simulates how a story can change from person to person, or how a rumor can start. For example, I may tell Susie that at lunch today I had a peanut butter sandwich, an apple, and some milk, and she may go tell Jackie that I had a turkey sandwich, an apple, and some milk. Although only one small detail was changed, over time the entire story can change. The game is played by starting with a story and whispering it from one person to the next in a circle and seeing how the story changed once the last person has told it. 

We decided to play this game as a design team, not with stories, but with cards! Our DT leader Ashley started with a photo of a card, emailed it to someone, who then created a card based off her card, and sent a photo of it to the next person. As a design team, this is the first time we're seeing the progression of the cards! 

Here is the photo of the card I received from Robin from The Cricut Scrapper

And here is the card I created inspired by her card:
I took her chevron pattern paper as inspiration and ran from there. The duck and it's face is from Peachy Keen's Duck and Egg Die. The sentiment is from Peachy Keen's Duck Dolls stamp set. 


What fun is a blog hop without blog candy?! A couple of our design team members have donated some blog candy for those who comment on EVERY stop of the hop!
