(If you would like to see some pics of our Zombie Halloween Costumes from yesterday, scroll down to the previous posting)
Once upon a time (okay, once upon two times nearly a decade apart), two girls were born... These girls were both visited by their fairy godmothers and granted very special talents... One was given the talent of creating the most beautiful mini scrapbook albums while the other was given the talent of creating some really amazing explosion boxes... Each of these girls would one day begin blogging, and this is how they would meet...
Somewhere over the rainbow, you'll find the lovely Rhonda... Where scrap happens and paper flies... And somewhere near the zoo, you'll find dear Amy... Where giraffes prance and frolic to her heart's content...
One day, these two lives collided and Rhonda and Amy have become forever friends!! Lovely Rhonda had this incredible idea for a new twist on a challenge blog, so she contacted dear Amy and asked her to take care of the "technical" side... For many months, they have enjoyed CELEBRATING the get-togethers and parties that make life fun by showcasing the DECORATIONS that others share... And THAT is how the Decorate to Celebrate! challenge blog began...
Today, it's time to CELEBRATE good times and good friends with this "BIRTHDAY PARTY" Blog Hop and Birthday Project Link-Up that will last all month long!! Rhonda, who is turning the big 5-0 this year deserves a month-long celebration, don't ya think??? And Amy, who will forever stay 29 (for the 12th time) has always been a BIG believer in the "Birth-month Celebration"... Soooooo... After the hop has ended, you'll be able to create a "Birthday Party" themed project and LINK IT UP at the Decorate To Celebrate! challenge blog!! Usually, your entry needs to be a decoration or party supply, but THIS MONTH (and this month only), you can link up ANY Birthday Party project (cards, layouts, 3D Art...). We'll be giving out some Birthday Presents all month long, but you'll need to enter to WIN!! You'll find more details on the challenge blog... For now, let's get hopping!! :)
Rhonda and Amy have assembled a few of their creative friends to join them on this Birthday Party Adventure through Bloggie-Land... Along the way, you'll find some incredibly creative projects to celebrate Rhonda and Amy... If you came here from Norma at http://pinkblingcrafter.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot!! If you have just happened upon my blog and would like to join the party, you can start with Rhonda at http://www.scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/.
I am so happy to be participating in this blog hop for Rhonda and Amy. For my project today I made a T-Shirt to help Rhonda celebrate turning 50. I wanted to make this similar to a wine label with the year of her birth. I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge for the font on this shirt and the Tie The Knot Cartridge for the flourish. I cut the design out of vinyl and used this as a stencil on the t-shirt. I painted the design with black fabric paint.
blog candy up for grabs. I will be giving away two Cuttlebug Folders (pic below).
