Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella. If you're following the hop, you should have come from Mandi's blog. I am super excited to participate this time!

Today is Emily's birthday (Mrs. Stamping Bella herself), so Shannon organized a blog hop on the SCS forum. The theme is Birthday and I decided to fall back to an actual Bella stamp since I haven't used those in a while. ;)

I used colored cakeabella with copic markers and add a little crystal effects & glitter to liven her up. I drew the colors from this old Simple Scrappin' Kit from Stampin' Up! I think it was a level 1 hostess set or a sell-a-bration kit or something. Anyway, the Cool Caribbean paper is from the set and the daisy chain and polka dot strip are adhesive die cuts from the kit as well. I really liked the look of the daisy chain above the Fiskars threading water punch.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Gabriela Duclos. Have a great day!

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday in the Splitcoast forum.

That's pretty much it. Thanks for stopping by!
