Happy Blogoversary!!!

Greetings My Crafty Friends!!!

Today I am participating in a Birthday Blog Hop with Yvonne a new crafty friend I recently met at Simply Scrapping Crafts.  She is celebrating her one year anniversary for her blogsite One Creative Momma.  I am extremely happy for her and I am so glad that she let me join in.  I have already visited the other blogs participating in this hop and all I can say is WOW!!! so I hope that you will hop along with us and participate in all of the fun.                              


The theme for this hop is Birthdays, so here are the projects I have for you today:

This card was created with cardstock patterned paper (Fancy Pants, Bazzill,) trim ( Prima) and organza ribbon I used a doily (Little Yellow Bicycle) as a background for the three tiered cake ( Once Upon a Princess cart.)Bling - My Minds Eye and a little Happy Birthday Pennant.

I enjoyed creating this little cupcake I cut out a cupcake from the Birthday Bash cartridge and also traced and cut out the same pattern with white felt.  I layered the two cupcake cutouts and stitched together.  I used a corrugated box to cut out a cupcake wrapper which I peeled off one layer and painted it white.  I attached ribbon and a crinkled bow,  embellishing the cupcake with Designer paper ( Fancy Pants) flower petals (Michael's) and tiny pink hearts, brad and a Happy Birthday pennant.

Lastly creating these altered jumbo clothespins has to be my all time favorite.  I get to be as creative and dimensional as I want!!  I purchased the clothespin from Hobby Lobby and covered both sides with two layers of Designer Paper by My Minds Eye called Lost & Found this is another one of my favs.  I embellished my clothespins with Prima roses, trim, fabric swirls ( Michael's) and an abundance of bling!! 

Hey look and there is that Happy Birthday pennant again! :-)
