Rhonda's Birthday Blog Hop





Its my birthday and I'll scrap if i want to, scrap if i want to. you'll scrap too when we're all thru.
I have asked a special group of scrappy friends to join me in celebrating my birthday with a blog hop .You are going to find a ton of inspiration among this talented group!
Here I am celebrating another birthday and turning a year older. I don't know if that is a good thing or not , but let's just celebrate and enjoy the day.
If you came from Rhonda then your in the right place. If you just happened at my place please start at the beginning with Rhonda http://craftingwithblue.blogspot.com/  so you don't miss a thing.
On to my project shall we.. For the Birthday Girl I create an explosion bod full of butterflies.








 For the box I used American Craft Card Stock, The outer layer  is double sided and embossed the other two layers were made from colored  Card stock. In a teal like green and a light blue. The patterned paper is from many different sources Walmart new Ki brand, DCWV Mariposa. ATD from Momenta. Most I bought at Tuesday Morning, The ATC cards are a free file from "Ephenera's Vintage Garden"  and a few Butterflies printed from my Imagine More Cartridge, Embossed some of the plain Card stock with Swiss Dots and others with the butterfly folder from the cricut embossing and die  butterfly kit. The center mat was cut in two sizes from Recollections CS from the CTMH Artist cartridge and stamped with a CTMH sentiment stamp. The following link is to the YouTube video I used to help me create this box.
