PPPR "Birthday Blog Hop"

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Blog Hop!!
Today we are celebrating Lisa's (owner/designer of PPPR) birthday! She had a plan for this hop, but we (the Design Team plus guests) have a plan of our OWN because we LOVE her!!!! ;) We are all making special birthday projects using some files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store AND since birthdays are all about celebrating with friends and giving gifts, we decided to add guests to the lineup and giveaway a TON of prizes!! These awesome prizes include fun twine, stamp sets and gift certificates to some of our favorite crafty stores!! You seriously do NOT want to miss a single stop in this hop!!

If you are coming here from Nanne's blog you are in the right place! If you have just stumbled upon this hop, make sure to head back to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog! ***But remember - and this is important! - Lisa does NOT have the correct lineup on her blog, because she doesn't know there has been a few ADDITIONS to the lineup thanks to her DT!! SURPRISE, Lisa!! :) Lisa will direct you to the correct blog, but after that please disregard her lineup!! ***

Now onto my project!!


PPPR "Make a Wish" cutting files for candles
Cardz TV Stamps' "Good Times" for sentiment
Bo Bunny Double Dot 6x6 paper pad for polka dot papers

Of course Lisa has an awesome package to give away to one lucky hopper!!



For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and also leave a comment on each blog. For extra chances, you can also 'LIKE' Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter. A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Tuesday, September 24th. Only US or Canadian mailing addresses please.

I also have some of my own blog candy for you -


To be eligible you I would like it if you were a follower of my blog and if you had a U.S. mailing address.  Please leave me a comment with a way to get a hold of you if you are the lucky winner!

Also, there is a special freebie to celebrate this occasion that is only available Saturday and Sunday at the PPPR blog.  It will be available for purchase in the store beginning Monday.


With our blog hop also comes a new Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Challenge!! The theme of the challenge is Birthday and you can link up your projects at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog until Sunday, October 12th for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store. We can't wait to see what you create using PPPR files!!
