Rhonda & Amy's Birthday Party Blog Hop!!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion and Rhonda & Amy's Birthday Party Blog Hop!! We hope you join in on this fun celebration for these 2 very talented blogger buddies who are celebrating their birthdays:)

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  Liz at http://mywhichcraft.blogspot.com/, then you are in the right spot!! If you have just happened upon my blog, I'd love for you to join the PARTY so CLICK HERE to start at Rhonda's Blog (http://scraphappenswithrhonda.blogspot.com/) so you don't miss any of the FUN!!

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!! :)

My first project:  Happy "50th" Birthday Rhonda- you cool cat!!

I cut the cat from the Nifty Fifties cartridge at 4". The crown is cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 3/4".  I found this big polka dot ribbon in my stash that I think matches up perfectly. The sentiment is from SU-cool cat set.
My second project: Happy (???) Birthday Amy-Still young at heart!! 

The card base is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4, the base layer at 5". The pattern paper is from Colorbox. I cut this jammin girl from the Rock Princess cartridge at 3 1/3 plus the layers. I used a fiskars border punch to created a lacy border and tied it with some pretty crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot . I also made a rosette from the pattern paper I was using and added a paper flower and button,  also from Colorbox. I am not sure if you can really see it, but I embossed the paper flower with the Divine Swirls folder. The sentiment is from My Creative Time ~Many Greetings set.

Here's the entire line-up!! You'll finish up at http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/ where you'll be able to start entering YOUR Birthday Party projects for a chance at some Birthday Prizes tomorrow!! This challenge will last ALL month long, so we hope you'll join us for the CELEBRATION!!
