Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Blog Hop!!
Today we are celebrating Lisa's (owner/designer of PPPR) birthday! She had a plan for this hop, but we (the Design Team plus guests) have a plan of our OWN because we LOVE her!!!! ;) We are all making special birthday projects using some files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store AND since birthdays are all about celebrating with friends and giving gifts, we decided to add guests to the lineup and giveaway a TON of prizes!! These awesome prizes include fun twine, stamp sets and gift certificates to some of our favorite crafty stores!! You seriously do NOT want to miss a single stop in this hop!!
If you are coming to here from Emma's blog you are in the right place! If you have just stumbled upon this hop, make sure to head back to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog! But remember - and this is important! - Lisa does NOT have the correct lineup on her blog, because she doesn't know there has been a few ADDITIONS to the lineup thanks to her DT!! SURPRISE, Lisa!! :) Lisa will direct you to the correct blog, but after that please disregard her lineup!!
Now onto my project!!
For the card I used the Layered Labels 3 Cutting File. I used the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files for my sentiment shape. The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Some Days Simply Require Stamp set.
The little boy is from the Make a Wish Cutting File. I glued him behind the drum set from the Rock on Cutting File. I also added some drumsticks to his hands, they & the music notes are from the Rock on Cutting file as well. The present is from the Party Items Cutting File.
I also used the same stamp set Some Days Simply Require for my sentiment inside the card. I am also going to link this up the My Creative Time's Birthday Challenge.
