 Good Morning Paper Shelter followers!


This is an annual celebration for us and this year we're celebrating The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on the 8th of December!

Congratulations Fikreta!  
You've created such a fun background for the image and your colouring is wonderful!

You have won a $30 gift certificate to spend in the The Paper Shelter store.

We have a quick and easy way for you to claim your prize: Just click on the CONTACT tab at the top of the page, which will take you to a form where you can list your choices from The Paper Shelter store.  Please include "Challenge #493 Winner" to help Veronica spot your choices, and please make sure you claim your prize by this coming weekend.

Let's get our celebration started!

Our usual challenge will be taking place, and will run for the length of the Blog Hop - so you have two weeks to get your entries in.  Our theme for the challenge is:


Up for grabs this week is our usual $30 voucher from our generous sponsor The Paper Shelter, to spend in their store.

This fantastic prize will only be available if our randomly chosen winner has used one of our products on your project.  This could be an image, paper or printable.  
You can still be a winner, even if you haven't used one of our products, winning 3 digi images of your choice from The Paper Shelter store, so it's still worth entering!
You can submit 3 entries into our challenge, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.
Please be sure to check our 'CHALLENGE RULES' tab at the top of the page, and make sure your entry is a new creation: NO BACKLINKING

In addition to the challenge is our Blog Hop.  This is our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us throughout the year.  

There is no obligation to participate in the Blog Hop, but we all hope you will, because every DT member will be choosing a comment winner, from those who left a comment on their blogs, to each win an image of their choice from The Paper Shelter.  There will also be a final comment winner chosen from the comments on the challenge post.  So in addition to our challenge prize, we will have 20 individual prizes of one image each, up for grabs!

That sounds like a celebration to me!

Below you will find your journey through the Blog Hop, starting on my blog, and ending on Vannessa's, before making your way back here, to let us know what you thought of the Hop.  Each Design Team member will have links for you to use, to hop on over to the next blog, but if you get lost, just make your way back here to use these links to get back to where you left off.

From Vannessa and myself, as well as all the talented designers on the team, we would like to thank The Paper Shelter, for sponsoring this challenge and being a wonderfully supportive company to work for.


We hope you have fun and find lots of inspiration along the way.  Thanks for playing along with us, and GOOD LUCK!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

First of all, congratulations on the 11th anniversary of The Paper Shelter.
I just finished my blog hop. Started over the weekend, but wasn't finished yet.
Beautiful examples have been made by the DT. It's also nice to see how different they all are. I couldn't do some digis yet.

Hugs, Astrid.
