Tropical Fusion BlogHop!!

Hi there and welcome to our Tropical Fusion BlogHop!! Our BlogHop is a collaboration of over 40 international designers and spread out over 4 days, giving you plenty of time to discover all of the amazing talent in our fabulous group. This year we’ve chosen an exciting tropical theme which is also a big trend in this year’s market, and have incorporated Pantone’s Color of the Year, “Radiant Orchid”, into our designs.

You’ve probably just visited Lisa Deighan’s fabulous blog. After you’ve checked out my tropical dreams, please scroll down to get the link for the next blog of designer Lisa Rivas, who also designed this year’s logo!!
