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!
