Artful Delight's Birthday Bash Blog Hop DAY 1 & SUPER SAVINGS

*disclosure - this post is going to be super long, LOL. But be sure to read through it, there is a lot of great info*

Welcome to Artful Delight’s first blog hop. There is a lot to celebrate this weekend. Today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate than with games and prizes! We hope you can play along. For the next three days we will have a challenge each day. Play along with the challenges for your chance to win the GRAND PRIZE!!! Each day we will have some awesome inspiration; hop along with us and leave some comments. Random commenters will be chosen for a chance to win prizes. We will be also be announcing the new Delightful Designers today. We will end the weekend on Sunday with the October kit reveal and our final challenge.

The challenges will remain open to play along with until September 30. All winners and prizes will be announced on Artful Delight's blog the evening of September 30th.

So who wants to know what the GRAND PRIZE is? Are you ready for it……..the winner of the grand prize will receive a 6 month subscription to Artful Delight kits!!!! All you have to do it play along with the challenges. You can play along with one or all three for more chances. Just upload your project in the linky tool in the sidebar for your chance to win. Please label it with the challenge you are playing along with and your name.

So who’s ready for some fun? Below is a list of participants so if you get "lost" along the way, come back here so we can get you on the right path. Hop along and meet our new designers and also see some great inspiration.

We have 4 new designers and if you hop along you will be able to "meet" all of them.

I would love to introduce to you one of our new Delightful Designers. She has actually already started as of September 1st and I am sure many of you already know her and follower her blog. Please welcome the super sweet Julie to our team.

My name is Julie Tucker-Wolek, and out in the cyber world, I am known as the SMILEY girl as I leave a lot of SMILES everywhere I visit! :):):):):):) I have been scrapbooking for almost 14 years when my son was born, but really got 'serious' about 5 years ago! :) I don't really think I have a style, I can be clean and simple, to all over the place, I feel that my style is ever changing, and I am okay with that as I am never afraid to try new things! :):):):):):):):) Blog - http://thetuckerwolekclan.blogspot.com/

Now for the challenge - the first challenge this weekend is a sketch challenge.

And here is my take on the sketch!

All the products on this LO are from Artful Delight's September monthly kit with the exception of the background paper. That is Kraft cardstock from Jillibean Soup. This is a picture of my daughters by our Apple Blossom tree in the front yard. It is GORGEOUS in the Spring when it is blossoming. I actually have pictures of the process, they have these beautiful pink flowers on the tree for about a week or two and then they all fall off and it looks like a normal tree. I will miss it when we move. :-)

Oh one last AWESOME thing before you hop on your way. There is a SUPER SAVINGS offered to you for ONE WEEK. This is the perfect time to purchase an Artful Delight subscription. For one week we are offering pre-payments for kits. You can pre-pay for a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription. But wait the best part is you can save 34% off. Weird amount I know but it is in honor of my 34th birthday today. Use the coupon code BDAYBASH during your checkout and save big time. If you thought $27.50/month was an awesome deal for a 6 month subscription, what do you think of $18.15??? The discount is only taken off the subscription price, during checkout you will be charged the full shipping charges on $45 for 6 months. For more details or to pre-pay for your subscription, please click here!!

You can also save 15% off your order - minimum purchase $23.00 ----Enter code BDAYBASH15 at checkout to receive your discount.
