Happy 1st Birthday Bugaboo Blog Hop!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BUGABOO! How exciting! You should have arrived here from the uber talented Joy Stagg. If not, make sure you start at the Bug Blog here.

I used the images from Jodie's A Kids View - Birthday to make placeholders, which you can find here.  You will see that several of us made Birthday favors and included a price list so you can see how simple it is to make your own.  I hope you like them.


Today's challenge is of course a Birthday Theme!!!! You have one week to participate in the challenge for a chance to win a digi prize pack- 7 free images for 1st, 4 free images 2nd and 2 for 3rd

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT: We will also be having daily challenges starting on Monday! Here's a list of the challenges (you will have one week to complete all five mini-challenges and post on the Bug Blog, so you have this list ahead of time to get started!):

Monday - Blue & White
Tuesday – Bling
Wednesday – Sketch
Thursday - Birthday
Friday - Anything Goes

Please remember it needs to be a new project each day, you cannot combine challenges.

Here's what's up for grabs for the hop and for the challenges:

GRAND PRIZE: One randomly selected entrant that has 1) completed the blog hop and 2) participated in the "regular" challenge and mini challenges will receive one free set per month for all of 2011.

SECOND PRIZE: One randomly selected entrant that has participated in each of the mini challenges will receive a coupon good for 75% off on one purchase.

THIRD PRIZE: One randomly selected entrant that has completed the blog hop will get to design a set with Jodie.

For the blog hop today I will randomly select a winner among the people that has left a comment on my blog to receive one free digi. You have one week to comment. Winner will be chosen on Saturday and will be announced here on my blog in my Saturday Challenge post.

Then for each of the mini challenges one randomly selected entrant will win the 01/2011 monthly set.

All Winners will also be posted on the Bug Blog.
 
Wait...there's more...Jodie is so generously offering a great discount of 60% all her stamps during Bugaboo's Birthday Week!  The code is KW696782.
 
Make sure to check out the BUG BLOG FOR ALL THE DETAILS!

SO MAKE SURE TO COMMENT ON EACH POST ALONG THE WAY! Next stop on your hop is the talented Lola Cordova.

Have a wonderful day!
