Birthday Bash Blog Hop 5/23

Welcome to the very first Birthday Bash Blog Hop. We are here to celebrate not only Lisa’s birthday but her daughter Becky’s birthday, who turns 20 today.

If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. If not, and just lucked up on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.
We’re so excited to being doing this hop, and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented folks. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop.
This hop runs all day on May 23, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what BLOG CANDY you could possibly WIN!! 
Here’s my card:

I love Hello Kitty & this paper is just adorable!  Cut from Hello Kitty Cartridge, paper is cloud 9, on sale at Joann’s.  There is some bling on her bow…
Ok, so I have some news for you…
I will be hosting a contest; my first one….  So hopefully I have thought through all the bugs.  
Here are the details… If I’ve missed something mention it in your comments and I’ll address it…

(can be animal). 
2) You have a little over a week to create and post on your blog post and on this one via inlinkz on my page.  This will be enabled at the top of the page.  If you don’t have a blog you can still post a picture.  Card must be posted by 5/31
3) If you use product from or mention any of the following in your post, you get one extra vote each:
Crafty Card Gallery App – a great way to get inspiration on the go! – a great way to search for cuts on your Cricut (formerly known as Cricut Search – great online scrapbook/craft store – my favorite new tool – easel for your layouts
4) On 6/1, voting begins.  You have until 6/10 12 PM, PST to solicit votes… There will be a post with more details on that.
5) 6/11 winner will be announced.  It will be the person with the most votes.  In the event of a tie, winner will be selected randomly from top vote getters.
6) Winner will get a gift card to Crafters’ Haven, a copy of the Crafty Card Gallery App, and a copy of the Bite Size Body Guide diet journal.  Total retail value almost $40!
