Welcome to Angela's 50th Birthday Blog Hop

A friend and fellow Cricut crafter, Angela, is celebrating her 50th Birthday this weekend.  She asked some of us to join her "My Fabulous 50 Blog Hop" by creating a Birthday themed project to help make her big day even more special.  Stop by the blogs listed below and see the fun Birthday themed projects everyone created.  There is even some Blog Candy along the way, including here. 

If you jumped into the middle of the blog hop, be sure and go back to the start at Angela's blog so you don't miss any birthday project inspirations. 
Happy Blog Hopping !!!

There is one thing I am always needing when a birthday rolls around and that is a gift bag for the honoree.  I decided to make an extra special Birthday Gift Bag and Tag since it is Angela's 50th Birthday. 

All the designs for this project were created using the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge.  The big birthday cake on the bag was cut at 7 inches, the yellow cake base cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug, and I added some yummy frosting using Martha Stewart chunky white glitter. I even used foam dots to pop-up the birthday word.

I made a matching mini birthday card as a tag using the cake card shape on the Birthday Bash cartridge cut at 5 inches.  I added some "paper sprinkles" to the icing and highlighted them with stickles. 

HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY DEAR ANGELA !  Hope you enjoy all the birthday projects posted in your honor.

LEAVE ME A COMMENT FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A CUTE MINI BIRTHDAY STAMP PERFECT FOR YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY GREETING.  Then hop on over to the next stop on the Blog Hop to see what Marcia has created at .

BTW - I am participating in the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop on Monday, February 28th so be sure and stop back in to check out all the cool projects we are making for that Blog Hop too!
