Welcome To The Very First Phindy's Place Challenge Blog Hop!!!


Hello and welcome to the first Phindy’s Place Challenge Blog Hop!   
I have been dying to tell this little secret, It's just so exciting!!!  I am 1 of 12 AWESOME girls to be picked for the new Phindy's Place Phabulous DT.   Because the DT and the Challenge blog are both new, our theme for the hop is “New”

Soooo... Happy - Happy Me, gets to put this Fabulous New Sign on my blog!  Yeah!



Phindy has designed an adorable "New Arrival" digi especially for the launch of the challenge blog! This  image is not available to buy in her shop until Friday, April 16.  One lucky follower of the challenge blog has won  this image – check back later and see if it’s YOU!  For every 50 followers on the challenge blog, there is another un-released image to be won – I hope you have signed up as a follower -  you could be a lucky winner!

The blog hop winner (chosen by random) will receive candy from Phindy – a $15 gift certificate to her shop!  Not only that, you will also find some small individual pieces of candy hidden along the way by the DT!  All you have to do to win is to sit back and enjoy the wonderful projects from the Design Team, and be sure to leave comments at each blog in order to be entered into the candy draw.   The Blog Hop Draw closes on Thursday 15 April at midnight GMT.

With all of those details out of the way, I will cut right to the chase, and show you my easel card that I created using this gorgeous "New Arrival" image from Phindy.  I am always amazed at what she'll come out with next. 
I also took a close up front view, so you could see this beautiful bassinet a little better.  Those two little creatures sure are curious about the other little creature inside aren't they?



I'm so honored to be part of this amazingly talented DT, and being here to help kick off this brand new challenge blog.  It's going to be a blast!

Happy Hopping, and just in case you get lost along the way you can come back and find your way.  Have fun and see you at the end:

Lynda Nielsen  ***You are here!***
Don't forget to come back and participate in our very first challenge, over at Phindy's PlaceChallenge Blog -  starting Friday, April 16th.  More fun and prizes coming your way!
