A Meljen's Designs Grand opening and Blog Hop




Welcome to such an exciting announcement by Melissa of Meljen's Designs!  Melissa has decided to once again open her own store and you stopped by just in time for the GRAND OPENING!  We are all so excited about Melissa's new store that today we have a blog hop to share our DT projects using Melissa's absolutely fabulous images!  AND from Sept. 1 - Sept. 8 if you shop Melissa's store you will be shopping during a great 50% off sale!  What could be better than that!

If you came here from LISA'S BLOG, then you are on the right track.  If not the click HERE to get to the beginning of the blog hop and see all the fabulous DT projects we made to share with you!

Also, today is of course Thursday so that means new release day at our store.  That's right, a grand opening and new releases, can it get more exciting than that!  This week's images are just so adorable you'll want to check them out when you hop on over to see Melissa's new store.


These images are just perfect for the artist in all of us.  Now, besides our grand opening, sale, new release and blog hop today also starts a new challenge over at the challenge blog.  This week's challenge is to make a card using no patterned card stock, only solid paper.  Now, I knew the challenge was no patterned paper and what do I do the first time, make a project with patterned paper.  On my second try I got it right but I do have 2 projects to share with you today using these new images.  My first project, using Painter Bear, will follow this week's challenge.  The second project, using Floppy Art Bunny, is just a for fun project that doesn't follow this week's challenge.

Here is my card for this week's challenge.




Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Self-Adhesive black pearls
Fiskars Flower punch

And, here is a box I made using Floppy Art Bunny with art supplies inside.




Now that you've seen my project time to hop onto the next blog in the hop, fellow DT member MELISSA.  I hope you keep following along and leaving some love for our wonderful DT members.  Comments are always welcomed and so appreciated!

Of course it wouldn't be a blog hop without PRIZES!  There will be a GRAND PRIZE winner who gets to pick 3, yes that's right, 3 images from Melissa's new Meljen's Designs store.  Then a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winner will each get to pick one image from the store.  How to win, easy as can be!  As soon as you are done hopping around to see all the fabulous DT projects then return to the main blog and be sure to leave a comment there.  Only comments left on this blog will be entered into the drawing.  Please remember though that although your comments on each individual blog won't be entered into the drawing, we love to hear what you think!

Blog Hop ends on September 8th at 8am!  

So glad you decided to stop by today,
