KinderStampo's 34 Birthday Candles & Counting Blog Hop!

Happy Midnight! Welcome to
KinderStampO's 34 Birthday Candles & Counting Blog Hop!
There are over 40 designers that are helping KinderStampo celebrate her birthday with this fabulous blog hop! With all the fun and inspiration this weekend will surely be filled with all kinds of creative fun!

If you have been hoping along then you have just come from Cheryl Gibson's blog! You have now landed at my blog and next is Corri's Blog. If you have just stopped by to see me then you can go back to the start at KinderStampO's Blog and join in for all the fun!

I wanted to share with you my birthday theme inspired project. While talking to my friend Pam (also on the blog hop!) Inspiration struck and I decided to make a birthday journal. I am always last minute on birthdays or even behind sometimes! (I know, awful!) It's like they sneak up on me. So I created a little mini book to keep out throughout the year that has a section for each month and all those special birthdays that I do not want to forget! It will also be helpful at the beginning of each year, when I get a new calendar! I hope that you enjoy & are inspired by my project below!

Here is the front of the album. I used my Cricut and the cartridges Cindy Loo & Mother's Day Bouquet.

I created a tag to use for January's birthdays.

Every divider is decorated. Here is February's.

These were the cutest little brown paper bags. I stamped on one and the other I used my Texture Boutique and embossed the cupcake onto the bag. I then inked it up a bit!

August had to be special. It is my birthday month! I used Tim Holtz's metal Numerals and Alcohol Inks to write my birthday across the front.

I continued making August special by adding a little scallop journaling circle with the information from my birth. Awwwww..... lol!

I hope that you continue on with the hop from here. Once again, your next stop is Corri's Blog HERE. The very beginning is KinderStampo's Blog HERE. 
Let's all have a great weekend and wish KinderStampo a very happy and
very blessed birthday!

If this is your first time to my blog then WELCOME! and if you are coming back to see me, then WELCOME BACK! I hope that you all look around and let me know what you think by leaving comments & becoming followers.

Happy Crafting!
