Delightful Challenge & Celebration Blog Hop

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!

I am the first stop on the hop so 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 so you don't miss all of the amazing projects!

The theme of this hop is CELEBRATIONS!! At Digital Delights by Louby 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. I don't have a letter to give.

Now on to my project.

The Delightful Challenge this weeks challenge is Red, White, & Blue. I used Celebration Charlie with Ticket Sentiments. The papers are Sparkle Blanc, Sparkle Abyesse, & Sparkle Vermillion from Paper Temptress. The DP is Birthday Celebration Digital Paper. Our sponsor this week is Crafty Ribbon. Below is a picture of the fabulous ribbon that is the prize.

I will be giving away Celebration Chalrie from Digital Delights by Louby Loo image which I used to complete my project:
