Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop...

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog you really want to go back and start at the beginning at Bloggabella.

I colored my Stamping Bella Turtle Tots birthday wishes image with Lyra colored pencils, blended with OMS and a blending stump. I added little touches of white, glitter and glaze with various different pens. The image is layered on old olive card stock then paper pierced. I used a baja breeze card body adding a bit of My Mind's Eye Abbey Road designer paper (using both sides of the paper) as well as a little strip of old olive. One strip of designer paper is punched with the EKSuccess wavy edge punch. I added a couple of Spare Parts white jumbo brads and a buttony bow.
Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we're not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Monday, Decemer 7th at the Stamping Bella blog. Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Cards by Kerri.
