Babushka Hunt and Easter Parade with CS DESIGNS

Welcome to the Babushka Hunt

The CS Designs Design Team has been hard at work helping Mr. Easter Bunny this year. Instead of the usual Easter Eggs we have been hiding little Babushka Dolls all over our blogs. Just like a real Easter Egg Hunt you are going to have to search high and low to find them on each designers blog. There are 8 hidden Babushkas in total to be found.

The Rules for the Babushka Hunt:

1.) Find all 8 little Babushkas
2.) Answer correctly all the fun questions in the Designer quiz from each blog listed below.
3.) Don’t tell anyone else the answers or where you found your Babushkas
4.) Become a follower of each blog/site where you found a Babushka
5.) Leave a nice comment on each blog/site so each designer will know you came to visit.
6.) Email Chris / CS Designs your answers to the Designer Quiz. Do not tell anyone else the answers.

Winner will be announce on the 26th of April
The winner will be selected by random draw and it will be up to you to check to see if you have won. If you are the winner, you must notify Chris / CS Designs to claim your prize no later than the 30th of April.

There will be two individual winners in the Babushka Hunt and the winners will be chosen by random draw.   In order to be eligible to be put into the draw you must meet all the requirements including answering the fun Quiz correctly.  Each winner will receive their choice of one of my darling little Babushkas from my CS Designs online shop.

Double your chances to WIN in the random draw byAdvertising the Babushka Hunt Banner on a prominent spot on your blog main page for the duration of the Babushka Hunt. Be sure it links back to CS Designs so others come and join in the fun!

This is the list of designers blogs you need to visit.  To find my hidden BaBushka you need to do a little back searching.  Grab your rabbit ears and cotton tail and let's go.....

  4. Melissa, I am so sorry, but may I ask why you call these dolls "Babushka" ??? Is that the American way to call them ? I am Russian and the word babushka means Grandma :))) We call this doll " matriyoshka" and it has never ever had a sad face:)) Always smiling- I have been study doll design in Russia at my College :))I am just wondering- still explore the English way of transforming the words :)))

  5. Marisha, I'm not exactly sure why they are named that. Perhaps ask the question to the designer Chris Stern at CS Designs who drew the image. I'm sure she will be glad to answer your question.
