Happy First Birthday - 'Moving Along With The Times' - Celebrating with a Blog Hop and anything but a card.

Happy birthday to MAWTT, happy birthday to MAWTT - woo hoo.

It's our first birthday and to celebrate we are having a BLOG HOP for you to enjoy. If you have arrived from the MAWTT challenge site to participate in the competition then you have arrived at the right place. If you haven't then please go back to check the rules and I'll hopefully see you again soon.

Firstly have a look at my creation for the challenge this week. We were asked to produce something that is not a card, has a Gorjuss Girl on it and that has a birthday theme. One of my grandaughters has a birthday coming up at the beginning of July (and she is a gorgeous girl) so I thought I would alter a photo frame, add the Gorjuss image to it and put in a photo of her taken recently when we went to Seaton.

The frame is one of those very inexpensive white 6x4 frames from Ikea. I thought I would go very bright and girly for this one. The paper came from my stack that I have in my craft room and I really must keep them organised so that I know where they are from. I chose some ribbon which came from a set from QVC a long time ago. The bow I made from seam binding and added a little pink pin and green flower charm. I used pink wings, a pink heart and a pink star with a turquoise MS punched butterfly covered in star dust stickles in the bottom right hand corner. .... and of course I stamped and coloured the pretty Gorjuss Girl image and added to it. Three pink gems just gave it the finishing touch.

So back to the competition for the Birthday Blog Hop. This is gonna be real easy you know, especially if you have looked at my blog and there is candy to win at every stop. So once you have participated here pop along to the next stop and visit Clare Thread-bare and see what she has to offer at My Crafty Life.

Beside the individual candy offered at every stop there will also be one lucky winner who will win some lovely goodies on the main blog.

Ok here we go. To be in with a chance of winning this gorgeous candy -

1. You need to have entered the challenge this week and followed the design spec. We will be strict with this to make it fair on everyone.

2. Leave me a comment  and re-arrange these words to make a lovely sentiment that can be used on your cards.

3. When you have that sentiment email it to me at

DO NOT add the saying to your comment or everyone will copy you. Entries must be in by Midnight Wednesday 30th June.

4. I will draw a winner from the hat on Thursday 1st July and post the winner on my blog on Friday 2nd July.

If you like some of what you see on my blog then I would be happy if you choose to become a follower but it is not essential to be in with a chance of winning candy.

Good luck with winning the Dandelion  goes fishing decoupage set, embossed transfers and stamp set.

Have fun.
