Bella's Birthday

Welcome to Bellas Birthday Blog hop sponsered by Stamping Bella. Can you believe its' been 3 years? If you've just happened upon my blog, you can start from the beginning, Em's blog the lady who started it all.. If you arrived here from the far east via Christy's blog you are on the right track. If there is a broken link you can find all of the blogs here.

In honor of Em's birthday, I had to use the Bella that started it all. Cosmo Bella was one of my first Bellas upon my 2008 discovery. She is perfect for so many friends and it's amazing how you can change her up to fit any occasion too. Just don't know whys her Christmas hat isn't coming up Red?

stamps: Stamping Bella - sentiment: Stamping Bella

paper: SU-Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses

Bella baubles-copics, SU snowflake punch, Marvy snowflake punch, stickles.

What's a birthday without presents? Especially if they are up for grabs. To share in the celebration 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 7th.

MWAH & CHEERS TO EM's BIRTHDAY!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to see what the sweet Jamie has created.
