Sarah's Super Secret Birthday Blog Hop!

Welcome Friends To Sarah's Super Secret Birthday Blog Hop!

First of All I just want to wish The Fab Sarah A Happy Birthday! To think our friendship started when I sent her the Pink ATG gun. I never expected a best friend, and that is truly what Sarah is to me, A best friend. I love you Girl!

OK, So you should be arriving here from the Man with the Most, The one and only, Mr. ScrapGuy Bryan!

But If you just happened to stumble across my post or my blog, be sure to start at the beginning at Ms. Paula's Blog so you can see the list of prizes and her awesome project. To start at the beginning please CLICK HERE!

As many of you know that some of Sarah's Favorite things are Zebra Print, Pink, Black, White, Coffee, Her Children, Her Husband, and Crafting. I think this blog hop will incorporate all of Sarah's Favorite Things!

I decided to make something for Sarah's craftroom. I'm not sure what she will use it for, But knowing Sarah, she will find a use for it!  Here is my Birthday Gift to Sarah!

I bought this dress form at Ben Franklin's and simply just tied tulle slip knots all over it in pink and black. I added some paper roses, hot glued some pearls on, and added some tulle flowers. If you look closely there is even a little vintage hardware (key) by Tattered Angles. I had wanted to make a dress with paper at first, but I figured the tulle would ship better.  Overall I am happy with the outcome and I know this will look fabulous in Sarah's craft room .

Next, this dress form needed to be presented with a card:

Sarah's Birthday card is 5x5, I used one sheet of the Graphic 45 Le' Romantique Collection. This is a front and back of one piece of paper. I layered the image that is also from the same paper line. Added some pearls and my home made crinkle ribbon.  I stamped the card with a sentiment " sneak peek " That will be released later on today! The card and the dress form look very pleasant together.

So for some blog candy, cause what's a blog hop without blog candy?  I have up for grabs, some of my own homemade crinkle ribbon and a Jenny Bowlin Cut and Paste bingo card.  You don't have to be a follower but I would sure love it if you did, and leave a comment. I will choose a winner on Friday.

Your next stop on the Hop is Sarah's Blog! I won't tell you what will be posted, but I will assure you, it will capture your heart and make you say AWE!!!!! Don't Forget to tell Sarah Happy Birthday! Thanks for hopping along with us! I sure hope you had fun Pink Cricut Style! See you all at the Ustream tonight!
