You Say It's Your Birthday Blog Hop - And You ARE Gonna Have a Good Time

Hi All - You should have just arrived here from: http://www.buglvr.blogspot.com/


I was so honored to be able to participate in this Blog Hop that my sweet friend Erika is hosting for her daughter Ashley's birthday. If you have not seen her stuff then you are missing out (http://www.cricutlove1.blogspot.com/). Erika has been posting since last week a Beatles inspired project every day leading up to this. 

The song I selected was I Want To Hold Your Hand:

I used my gypsy girl to find a hand image and then copied it and flipped it to move them together. This hand came from A Childs Year and when designing in my gypsy I hid the heart on the flipped hand. The white paper is from Walmart, yellow from my stash, background from the DCWV stack Flower Shower from last spring. I used red stickles on the heart, my IRock to give the one hand a blingy bracelet. I used the cuttlebug folder spots and dots for the background paper, doodled all around and then typed the sentiment out on my computer and cut it out with shape scissors.

I mailed this along to Erika's daughter Ashley along with some scrapping goodness to celebrate. I really hope she liked it all.

Thank you again Erika - I was happy to participate. Now if you get lost along the way I am posting the complete line up right here:
