DeNami April Blog Hop

DeNami April Blog Hop


Welcome to DeNami's April Blog Hop!  We have a super creative line up this month, as we do every month and I can't wait to see everyone's creations!  The theme is Monochromatic!  I have in the past been a self proclaimed monochromatic girl!  I love things simple and with different shades of the same color!  If you are following the hop, you got here from my sweet friend, Michele's blog!

SO here is my creation for this month...

IMG_0741_edited-1

You can't tell from the picture but the umbrella is stamped on Lemon Tart and the background is Harvest Gold.  The layering of the monochormatic colors looks so pretty IRL!  I stamped the background with DeNami's Polka Dot background stamp!  And I am SO in love with that sentiment! 
Your next stop on the hop is the adorable Wendy!  You can go back to the DeNami blog too, for a full list of participants!

So here are a few details straight from DeNami Design....

When: The blog hop starts on April 10 at 6 AM,PST. However, you have until April 11, 2011, 11:59pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).


Why: To be inspired by beautiful creations featuring DeNami Design stamps and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!


Prizes: We are giving away THREE $20 gift certificates to our website! We'll be giving away one gift certificate to a random participant (DT members not eligible) and then we'll also be giving away TWO gift certificates to TWO people who comment along the hop!

Extra Challenge: This blog hop filled SO quickly, so we thought we'd bring an additional opportunity for those who weren't able to get on the list, and also those blog hoppers who had additional monochromatic projects to share. We will have a link widget on the blog hop post where you can upload additional monochromatic creation(s). We'll choose one winner to be guaranteed a spot in the next blog hop AND they'll get to choose a few stamps of their choice!


So glad you stopped by today!  Have a great Sunday!
