Artful Delight BIRTHDAY Blog Hop *Day 1: Sketch challenge*

 
  Welcome to Artful Delight’s first blog hop!  I have some exciting news: you may recall that Leeanne invited me to be an Artful Delight guest designer in August….and now she has invited me to be a part of her DT for the next term (beginning November 1st.)  EEK!  I am over the moon; her monthly scrapbook kits are full of *new* papers and embellishments from top manufacturers.  (She also sells monthly card kits too!)  I used the August Artful Delight scrapbook kit to make a LO and five cards back in August, and I still have plenty of papers and embellies to make loads more.  Today's papers also came from that August kit (currently on sale for $23.50 while supplies last.)

  Hop details:  You should have arrived here from my lovely friend, Court.  The hop starts at Artful Delight…don't forget to wish Leeanne a happy birthday while you are there!

 There is a lot to celebrate this weekend. Today is Leeanne's birthday and what better way to celebrate than with challenges and prizes? We hope you can play along.  Each day for the next three days we will post a new challenge. Play along with the challenges for your chance to win the GRAND PRIZE:  a 6-month subscription to Artful Delight kits!   
(The challenges will remain open to play along with until September 30.)  All winners and prizes will be announced on Artful Delight's blog the evening of September 30th.


 * You can play along with one challenge, two, or all three for more chances.  Upload your project in the linky tool on Artful Delight's blog (right-hand sidebar) for your chance to win.  Please label it with the challenge you are playing along with and your name.

  In case you get lost along the way, here is the complete hop list:
Marlene – Scrappin’ Cookie

 * Prizes will be given to randomly to those who leave comments :)

 * For one week only:  purchase a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription for 34% off the kit price (shipping rates are not discounted).  For any purchase over $23 there will be a 15% discount.  (Translation:  if you pre-pay the 6 month subscription price using the coupon codes listed below, you will save $9.35 per kit!)
