Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you didn't start from the beginning, please go to Emily's blog. If you came from Lori's blog, then you're right on track. If there is a link missing and you get lost, here is a list of all the blogs.

I'm so excited to join in on Stamping Bella's 3rd Birthday celebration! I've never participated in a blog hop before, so this will be fun. There are 86 of us participating today and I'm #72, so I thank you for making it this far!

For my entry I decided to use Tinkerbella and the sentiment "have a fairy happy birthday". (You can click on the photo to make it larger.)




















I have a hard time showing "shimmery" in photos, so here's a little closer up.













Isn't she just darling?? I love her pretty little outfit! Since I'm a mom of two boys I never get to do girly stuff, so I thought this would be a great way to get the pink and glitter out of my system. I colored Bella with Copic Sketch and Spica Glitter markers and for the paper and accessories I used all Close To My Heart supplies ("Daydream" paper pack, ribbon and Pretty Pins). I hope you enjoyed Tinkerbella as much as I do, now on to the exciting news...

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, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to {Karen's blog}.
