Whimsy Special Blog Hop..........'Heal the world'

Good evening my lovelies, hope you are all fine & dandy.
Hello and welcome to a very special blog hop today!  You may have been on the first hop that Whimsy put on for this special cause.  Well, there were so many who volunteered to join in that we had to do a second one!  The illustrators of Whimsy Stamps have come together to draw a special set of digi images for the purpose of raising money for the relief effort in Japan.  All proceeds from the sale of these images will be donated to that cause.   Kenny K, Raindrop Echo Designs, Meljens Designs, and Crissy Armstrong all contributed art work. 
For the whole month of April, you can purchase the images as a set or individually (your choice)  by visiting this page on the Whimsy store site.  Please consider helping this special cause by purchasing one or all of the digital images we are offering.  
If you have landed here from Dawn's Blog, you are right on track.  If you have come here randomly and would like to start hopping from the beginning, please go to Ann's blog.   She has the blog rotation order posted if you need to refer to it. 
The amazing ladies of two design teams have come together to host this blog hop for you!  Ann's team from Sentimental Sundays and the Kenny K Krafty Girlz have joined forces to design some amazing jaw dropping creations for you.  You have seven days to hop through all the blogs and enjoy all the lovely creations from these talented people. 
The hop runs from now through til Sunday April 17 at noon.  There will be several opportunities to win blog candy!  Four random commenters will get a chance to receive one of the three individual images or Ann's sentiment set.  So be sure to leave comments all along the way for your chance at a free digi!  Also, if you post the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's sidebar, you can enter into the draw for the grand prize!  The grand prize will consist of the entire digital set made just for this cause as well as a gift certificate donated by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs worth 10$ to use at the Whimsy Stamps store! To enter, you must help us advertise for this cause by posting the "Help for Japan" button on your blog's side bar (just grab it from my side bar or from the top of this post) and then get your name on the Inlinkz option on Ann's post so we can be sure to find the winner.  
Now on to my project: 
I have used Anime DJ by Kenny K in my project today. As soon as I saw this fab image I knew I wanted to do something with music & obviously relating to Japan......the first song that come to mind was Micheal Jacksons 'Heal The World' which I thought was perfect for this special blog hop. I have used an image off the internet for the sentiment & even managed to get the song sheet which I then distressed with inks.
Here is Anime Dj



The paper is from K&Co everything else is from my stash & the flower I made myself using pages from an old book. I never have time to read anyway lol. She is coloured with Copics but she has been coloured for a while so I cant remember the colours sorry peeps.
Next you'll want to visit the fabby Amy's Blog to continue hopping.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and for your support of this very worthy cause. 
Please help this very worthy cause what they have had to endure is just un-imaginable....please PLEASE help!!
                                           Thank you so much stopping by you all totally rock mmwah
                                                                            Huggles xoxoxox
