Tanya's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!


Welcome to Tanya's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!!!! I am so happy that Kari from Purplefuntastick Creations put this blog hop together and asked me to start the party off!! For those of you who may not know Tanya from Scrappin' KY Momma, she is an awesome, talented and dedicated crafter who loves to inspire people.  She is the leader of the Paper Hoarders group on facebook and keeps it going like if we were a big, happy, crafty family!  Now it's our turn to show her some love on her special day and let her know how much we appreciate her.  So Tanya, I hope you are inspired with our creations just as much as you inspire us!

On to my project and gift for Tanya.  I made her 2 frames for her to have pictures of her 2 children Candace and Colton. I sure hope that she likes them!! I added some pictures that I grabbed from facebook, but once she gets them she can change them to whatever she wants.

I used Echo Park's Victoria Gardens collection for both of these frames and sealed them with mod podge.  For Candace's frame I used the font from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge and I stickled it.  I also made the flowers from the Art Philosophy cartridge and added some pearls and heart pearls for Martha Stewart.  For Colton's frame I used the font from Don Juan and I stickled as well. For the banner I used My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit.  The letters for the banner are from KinderStampO's Say It in Type stamp set.

Now on to some blog candy!! I am giving away to one lucky winner the wonderful Cricut Yummy Imagine Cartridge! 

All you have to do is be a follower of my blog, leave a comment on this post and also leave a comment on all the other participants blogs.  Here they all are:

You have until Sunday November 27th midnight to hop along. I will choose a winner on Monday morning.

Tanya, I hope you were surprised.  You are truly an amazing friend and inspire me in so many ways.  I sure hope that one day we get to meet, it is definitely one of the items in the top of my bucket list!! lol! I love you lots and I wish you the best birthday ever with lots of love, happiness, peace and good health!

P.S. Your frames will be mailed to you on Monday! :)

Now on to the most talented Kristina.  She also has this awesome giveaway just for leaving a comment on all blogs!  

So don't miss out and enjoy the blog hop in honor of a beautiful person!! Have a beautiful day everybody!
