October Afternoon Cakewalk Blog Hop! (Drawing Closed)

Welcome to the October Afternoon Blog Hop, featuring the new Cakewalk line!
Cakewalk is easily one of my favorite OA lines ever.  It may appear to be a birthday-themed line on the surface, but it is so much more than that.  I used it recently on a Mother's Day card, and on this Easter layout:


The Cakewalk line is chock full of bright colors and fun patterns.  Here are some of my favorites:
Cakewalk Designer Brads
Cakewalk "Candy Buttons" Patterned Paper  (A and B)
Cakewalk Sprinklers
Cakewalk Mini Market Letters
Cakewalk Doo-Dads
If you'd like a chance to win a set of Doo-Dads (the last item in the list above), leave a comment on this post by 6 p.m. Hawaii time on May 8, sharing what you love best about the Cakewalk line (the full line can be seen here).  Please include your email address in your comment.  The winner will be announced on May 9, so be sure to check back then!


On to the next stop on the blog hop: Amy Heller!  Here's the full list of today's participating blogs:
