Carri's Birthday Celebration Hop

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and Carri's Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!!!  I am super thrilled to be a part of Carri's special day! I had the honor of meeting Carri last fall when my hubby and I were visiting family out in Arizona.  I noticed Carri lived in Arizona and popped her an email to see if she would be interested in meeting up. We met at Hobby Lobby (which is one of my favorite places to shop) and enjoyed some time together shopping crafts and visiting. Carri is just the sweetest person and I am so glad to have met her......Have a GREAT day and Happy Birthday Carri!!


If you have come from Stacy's blog then you are in the right spot. If you happen to stumble on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, please go HERE.  You will need to follow and leave comments at all the stops to be eligible for the prizes.  We have some awesome prizes along the way!!! So, grab your coffee, tea or soft drink and come enjoy the hop and help us celebrate Carri's birthday:)

I wanted to create a decorative gift box to put a small gift inside of it. I cut this cute box and lid at 9" from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge. I think this is the perfect size for a small candle, a piece of jewelry or candy..many possibilities!




I cut the flowers at  from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3 1/2  & 4" and the leaves are from the Spellbinders Dies-foliage which I embossed with the polka dots folder and inked edges with Momento-rich cocoa.




The tag is cut at 1 1/2 from the Art Philosophy cartridge also and the sentiment is from My Creative Time~ Many Greetings. I added some fun ribbon and a cute little birthday charm that was in my stash for finishing touches.

How about some blog candy???  Michael's $15.00 Gift Card
