Meljen's Designs Blogiversary Blog Hop

This post will remain at the top until 9am EDT on April 6th. For recent posts please scroll down.


Welcome to your next stop on the Meljen's Designs Blog Hop! What an exciting time!  It is the anniversary of the blog. Congratulations, Melissa!  I hopped last year and now I get to participate as a design team member this year!

You should have come here from Nicole's blog. Nicole had some fabby inspiration for you!  If you didn't come from Nicole's blog and you would like to start from the beginning, scroll down for the list of participants.

Our theme was to use our favorite Meljen's Designs image.  It's no surprise I chose Monkey Toes for my project.  You can get the image in black and white or colored.  I used the black and white image and paper pieced it.  One of my co-workers is having a baby and Monkey Toes is perfect for a baby card!


This was one of my first images from Meljen's Designs and I won him on a blog hop.  Now it is your turn!  Just leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose a random winner from all of the comments.  Be sure to leave me some way to contact you so I can send you your prize!  Be sure to comment on all of the blogs on the hop because you will have a chance to win the grand prize...a pack of Melissa's favorite images! Melissa is the creative talent behind Meljen's Designs!

You have until Friday, April 6th at 9 am EDT to post your comments.



In addition to being able to win this image, there is a Buy One Get One Free sale going on at the shop the entire month of April! That is a super deal when you consider the black and white images are $3 and under and the pre-colored images are $4! Head on over to the shop after you finish hopping and fill your cart!

Rae Ann, I love your card and the colors. I love the sentiment , how perfect for a new baby boy. This sock monkey brings back memories, my mother made a sock monkey for each of my children and life happened and a not nice person made sure they didn't have their sock monkeys anymore. This image is perfect for cards to them to bring back good memories of their sock monkeys. Thank you so much for sharing him and this adorable card. hugs Cathy k visionscj@earthllink.net
