PCJ Challenge #13 and Summer Fete Blog Hop!!!

It’s our 13th Challenge at PCJ and we’ve decided that 13 is indeed a lucky number. To celebrate, we’re having a summer fete blog hop. It's not summer here in Australia but the sun is shining just for this occasion!!

If you have arrived here from the Paper Crafting Journey Blog then you are in the right place, if not then head back there so you can join in the fun!!
There are heaps of prizes to be won, 13 in total from 13 different sponsors! How fab is that?
The rules are simple and you can do these in any order, as long as they’re all complete – we will be checking! hehe
                           * Enter the challenge – easy theme of Anything Goes – with a direct link to your project
                           * Leave your blog link on the linky widget at each stop
                           * Leave a comment at each stop after the main challenge blog

Sound easy enough?

We have two prizes available to entrants of the challenge
Meljen’s are providing one lucky winner with 4 individual digi stamps of your choice
and
MFT Stamps are providing one lucky winner with a $15 gift certificate to spend in the MFT Store.

My sponsor is the wonderful Deb from The Emerald Faerie Garden!! A fellow Aussie, I jumped at the chance to use one of her faerie images!! They are so cute and you can create so many beautiful projects with them!! And she will be giving one very lucky person the Emerald Faerie stamp that I have used below!! But be warned... once you have this stamp you will want them all!!! LOL!!


As this hop is all about a summer fete I chose flowers for my stall and thought Ally and Beeble would be perfect.

I made a tent card (which my sister has decided she would like to have to put in her daughters room - hope she likes how I finished it! ) I coloured Ally and Beeble in with Tria markers and used some glitter pens to add some sparkle!! Added all the flowers (winnings from Blog Candy), then added all the other embellishments including the shrinky dink butterflies!! Not sure that the photo shows all the sparkle but you know me, always have to have some sort of glimmer and bling!!

Thanks for stopping by. Your next hop on the stop is the very talented Cindy.. If you get lost along the way, head back to the PCJ blog where you'll find the full list of stops.

You have until 12:00BST on 6 July 2011 to complete all three steps above (you can simply enter the challenge without entering the blog hop if you wish). Winners will be announced on Thursday 7 July 2011
Be sure to enter your name in the inlinkz at each hop stop, leave a comment and enter this fortnights challenge of anything goes to be eligible for prizes!!
Happy Hopping!
