Starla's having a Blog Hop and Challenge!

Today’s the day, the day that Starla, of You Could Be Wishing on a Star, is having her blog hop and challenge! She is celebrating her birthday, her 1 year Blogaversary and reaching 100 followers and I’m so excited that she asked me to be a part of it!

If you got here from Cely’s blog then you’re on the right track. If not, go to Starla’s blog to get all the details. We hope that you’ll join in the fun as she’s going to have prizes…LOTS of prizes :D She has gift certificates for 5 lucky people who make comments on every stop along the way and a box of blog candy for the winner of the challenge!  Here’s what Starla had to say about all the prizes:
Now, before I get to the list for the blog hop, let’s talk about prizes, shall we? There are actually two parts to this celebration. The first is the blog hop. Every person that visits every stop in the hop and leaves a comment on each post gets entered into a drawing to win a $10 girft certificate to one of my favourite stamp companies. One will receive a gift certificate to Tiddly Inks, and one will receive a gift certificate to Guylou’s Inimitability. Click on the links (on her site) to visit their stores and browse around!

The second part of the celebration is….the challenge! Since I just LOVE fairies, I’m hosting a fairy themed challenge! All you need to do to enter is to create a fairy themed project and link it to Mr. Linky (on her site). Only one entry per person, and please remember to link directly to your post and not to your blog. You have till 11/12/11 at midnight CST to enter. The candy pictured (on her site) is the grand prize for the challenge! It has a little bit of everything so I hope it looks yummy!

So the theme for today’s hop is Fairy’s….don’t you just love them? I was so happy when I found out because I have all of these fabulous fairy images to choose from. The one that I went with is from WhoopsiDaisy Digital Stamps. She was one that I got as a freebie awhile back, but you can find a whole bunch of incredible images at their store here (and between you and me she has a great deal going on right now).

I used a sketch from Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge.

You can find it and the challenge here.
I used SU cardstock and the dp is from a Specialty Collection by Momenta. I coloured her with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. The gold accents are made with my Golden Star Gelly Roll pen and my Metallic Gold pen by Marvy. The blue ribbon is by Offray and the Poinsettia’s are confetti I had in my stash.
Your next stop is Lynn. If you get lost along the way, this is the order of the hop:

                             Charlene (that's me)

We hope you have a great time checking out everyone’s projects and that you join us for the challenge. Now head on over to Lynn’s, and don’t forget to make a comment on everyone’s blog….Good luck!
