FCD -Digital D'Illusions Hop



NOTE: The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

Welcome to the FireCracker Designs by Pamela Digital D'Illusions blog hop. We were challenged to use one of the fabulous new Digital images from FCD and to create some sort of optical illusion on our piece. I choose to do a reflection in the water of this cute little child called Child of Summer.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

BLOG CANDY!! One winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess…so you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog so you don’t miss out! It’s like a treasure hunt inside a blog hop…he he he Prize this month?? 5 Free digitals!! For the Birds; Audrey; Giroid-Hey There!; Manaone; Warm My Heart

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to SHELLY and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!
