Meljen's Designs Anniversary Blog Hop

**For my There She Goes challenge card, please scroll down a little bit. Thanks!!**

Hi there! Meljen's Designs is having an Anniversary Blog Hop to honor the anniversary of Meljen's Designs!! You should have came here from Audrey's blog. If not, be sure you hop back over there to see what she's created for you! 

The designers are all using their favorite images in the hop today. I had a hard time picking a favorite, since I love so many of Melissa's images. I finally settled on Fancy Little Teapot because this was one of the very first Meljen's Designs images that I ever used, and it's always been a favorite of mine. I colored it with Copic markers and accented my image panel with Buttercup Liquid Pearls. The patterned papers are My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody, and I picked them because I thought the flowers kinda matched the flower on the teapot. I did some stitching around each of the vertical panels. For the sentiment, I just typed it up on the computer, printed it, cut it out, and popped it up with some foam tape. 



You have an opportunity to win this Fancy Little Teapot image!! Just leave a comment here on this post, and on Friday I will post a winner! Be sure you comment on all the blogs because each designer is giving a digi away!!
