Welcome to the Digistamps4Joy CELEBRATIONS Blog Hop. Oh my goodness, we are so excited that the day is finally here. I just can't believe that we are at our 100th Challenge already.

Our first challenge on our new blog was on February 23, 2012 and we are so thrilled to still have you as our 'fans' after 2 and a half years! As a big THANK YOU to all of you, we are holding a BLOG HOP where you can win many prizes...oh so many prizes.We have some new releases we are showcasing as well as some previously released  favorites. Each of the DT will be giving away the digital image they are showcasing to one lucky follower. And, if you enter our challenge, you again put yourself in line to win more of our digistamps. And the cherry on top of it all is Margy will also be throwing in some ad hoc prizes and discounts on the main DS4J blog during September!  So come on and join with us as we CELEBRATE!

You have arrived at my blog in beautiful Chilliwack, B.C. Canada.
I have had the extreme pleasure of being a part of the DS4J DT since June 29th, 2011! Wow....I am an old timer lol. I have been so blessed to be able to 'play' with these wonderful images for so long and to meet so many fabulous people both on the DT and from my posts here. Thank you so much to all of you who have come and visited me here over the years.

If you landed on my page first then just carry on to the next blog Desire, and then from the main blog again till you are back at my blog, OR start at the top at the Digistamps4Joy blog, and work your way though to the final stop (Ursula’s blog). The full hop order is listed on the main DS4J Blog and at the end of my posting.
The image that I got to play with for the hop is a previously released image called Bow River

  This is an actual place and this image was made for me by Margy from a picture that I took while traveling through Banff, Alberta here in Canada. Thank you so much Margy I just love it! THIS FABULOUS IMAGE IS ALSO THE ONE THAT ONE LUCKY FOLLOWER WHO COMMENTS ON MY BLOG WILL WIN! Yup, one lucky winner will win a little piece of Canada...or at least an image of part of it lol.           .
