Ella's 1st Birthday Blog Hop!!

Hi everyone!  Today is The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog's 1st birthday!  Thank you all for coming my way and joining in on the celebration!  Thank you for hoping over from Tina's blog!

I have only been a part of this fabulous team since October and loving every minute of it!  The challenges have helped me try new stuff, learn new stuff, and introduced me to many new wonderful ladies!

For this Birthday Blog Hop we were to re-create our favorite challenge!  My favorite challenge was #39 A Recipe Challenge; The color Black, Hardware, and Distressing!






Supplies I used in my Recipe:

Stamp by: Annie Rodrigue this stamp was a special order made to resemble my daughter Rio as a Hogwarts student.. (Hollie I know you are googling over her, go Harry Potter lol)!  The sentiment was my own with tiny alphabet stamps.

Designer Paper; DCWV Glitter stack

Hardware: Making Memories Metal Mesh, black brads.  Queen and company large round black brad.

Distressed areas: I distressed both the paper and the large round brad.

Flowers: Prima Marketing.

I loved making this card, it was so much fun to see my visions of a cartoon daughter as a Harry Potter character come to life on my paper!  I hope you all enjoy it!  Your next stop is Robin, now that lady has got some talent... well all the ladies on TPE do really!  Head on over to Robin's blog for a peak at some awesomeness!

Oh and just in case you have lost your way here is the blog hop list for you all to go by.  When you get to Lori's blog, get ready for some more hoppin' as she has invited many ladies to join in on the hoppin' fun!

Scrappy Witch said...

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments! Everyone is so sweet! My daughter was tickled to be made into a stamp... this is the second one I had made of her. I had one made of just her in a funky outfit and books as she loves to read and put the stamp in her stocking she was sooo thrilled. I was just dying to let her in on the secret but I could cause it was supposed to be her very special Christmas gift!

Sorry I rambled... just so nice to have such great comments!
