It's a Celebration Blog Hop! 30 June-1July

Hello everyone and welcome to the Digital Delights It's a Celebration Blog Hop 30June-1July 2011. This is a 2 day hop to help you get through all 30 of our talented designers, collect your letters and enter to win the grand prize!

If you came here from Jacki  then you are in the right spot! If you have just come across this posting while browsing around in blog land then start at the top  Digital Delights blog so you don't miss all of the amazing projects!


The theme of this hop is CELEBRATIONS!! At Digital Delights by Looby Loo,  we are celebrating the new store! Wendy (aka Louby Loo) just completed the move to a new and improved store! In honor of this, each stop along the way will have a Digital Delights stamp from their project to be given away. There are amazing sponsors for the grand prize at the end.

This is a hop with a different twist as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters but if you gather all the letters then at the end of the hop on day 2 assemble them to create a Digital Delights related word. You then return to the Digital Delights blog and enter your name in the inlinks at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop you will be contacted if you are selected at random--at which point you will be asked to reveal the correct word.

Now on to my project.




I have used the lovely Ellie the Elephant , isnt she the cutest!! I have used the matching paper also found at Digital Delights , I seem to have a thing for paper weaving at the moment and I am using it loads but I just love the effect and also using all my scraps of paper up. I have coloured in promarkers and used some dabs of glossy accents on her toes. Everything else used was from stash . xx

I will be giving away the following Digital Delights by Louby Loo image which I used to complete my project:



In order to be eligible to receive this digital stamp, please leave a comment below, become a follower if you fancy. In your comment please provide an email address so that you can be contacted when I draw the prize.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you liked my project.

Now back to the hop - I can now reveal my hidden blog hop letter is R. remember to collect all the letters from the hop and assemble to form a Digital Delights related word then return to the Digital Delights blog to enter.
Remember not all the blogs have letters you will need to visit everyone so you dont miss one.

The next stop on the hop is: Juelmarie
Have fun and good luck

I'm getting married....

Did that grab your attention? I'm not really but today it is my wedding anniversary.
I have lots of what I call back up cards, but no wedding cards, so when I saw across at Pollycraft this weeks challenge was wedding/love I knew what my personal project this week would be.
So here is my wedding card. I have used the lovely Pollycraft image Cuthbert and Kiki, how cute are they. I have made a trellis background which is a first for me but I love it, so will be doing many more cards like this.
I have coloured using promarkers and added tiny pearls to her dress and butterflys using a cream pearl pen. The larger white pearls are from Add some sparkle. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. The pins and pink flowers are from Wild Orchid and everything else used is from stash.
