Pink Buttons and Bows Card Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop today!!! Its my granddaughter, Lily's,first birthday and what better way to celebrate is with a little help from my friends and having a party! A beautiful baby girl with all pink buttons and bows thus we will be celebrating first birthdays using the color theme pink with a dash of buttons and bows not to mention a splash of bling.

Sit back, grab a cupcake, some punch and enjoy Lily's first birthday. If you just happened upon my blog by mistake, I want you to get your big girl shoes and panties on and start at the beginning which is ME, the proud Grandma!!

For our blog candy, it is going to be a pink package with buttons and bows of course with a bit of splash, bling and Stickles. To become eligible please leave a comment on each baby step along the way and becoming a new follower, but only if you sew desire!! How easy is that!!!!

Now, first, let me say I'm the Grandma and I can break the rules - right? ok, maybe not . . . ok, with that being said my project is not a card <gasp>! Not a card you say when this is a card blog hop -- didn't I just say, I broke the rules..... oops!!!

For my project I made a photo storybook type album (ok, I don't know what to call it . . . ) and put pictures from Lily's birthday luncheon from Saturday in it until I ran outta my tape runner along with pink paper (ok, I didn't plan ahead that well either!) but I promise to finish and post . . . .


  • Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge - crown cut at 5.75 inches on blackout
  • Various pink papers from Sweet Stacks, a K&Co baby print, and Nana's Angels
  • No buttons and bows have been injured at this time for embellishments
  • Princess cut from Alphabet cut at 1.75 inches from E2 
  • Tags cut at 1.75 inches - memo to self I need more tags!!!
now for the pictures - 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy First Birthday Lily! Your next stop along the way is my good friend and very talented Susan.

Just in case, you might get lost along the way, here’s the entire party line-up or just follow the cupcake crumbs!!!:


God Bless and thank you my friends
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust
