Happy Birthday to..... ME! and more!
That's right! Yesterday was my birthday... and the day before that was my sister's birthday. I have a nephew who's birthday was on the 10th and my dad's birthday is on Saturday. I also have a niece who's birthday is coming up in two weeks on Oct 3rd. She just missed one of the busiest birthday months for my family. I was so happy to find out that this month's theme for the TE Blast for the Past Blog Hop was "BIRTHDAY". We could do either a new baby theme (and congratulations to Taylor for the birth of her first baby, Madelyn Grace, last week!) or a regular birthday. I chose a girly birthday theme.
I used TE's Moka Olivia for the image and I cheated a little and used the sentiment from Moka Taylor for the "Happy Birthday". Next month I'll be able to use Moka Taylor legally. hehe!
I paper pieced the dress and hair band on Moka Olivia. I think she's so cute!
I used TE's Shopping Bag and labels die. What a fun little bag! I cut the top down a bit and added some glitter rick-rack for the handle. Real tissue paper is on the inside. In retrospect I should have put a lighter pink in it so it will show up better in the photos.
Here's another angle so you can see the cute bag.
The paper I used is DCWV Cherry Limeade Stack. Lots of yummy colors, patterns and shininess. ooooooooooohhhhhhh, shiny!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
