Welcome to the SweetSassyDiva's Birthday Blog Hop! - Day 1


We are celebrating Bobbi Jo's (SweetSassyDiva) birthday this weekend March 10th and 11th. Each day will be a new project and be sure to check out the yummy blog candy giveaways!

I am so happy that you could join us for this super fun Blog Hop showcasing Birthday Themed fun!

You will find an array of ideas along the hop and be sure to become a follower and leave some love aka comments along the way.

This is a TWO-Day hop so, be sure to catch both days for maximum celebration and ideas.

As we spring forward with the time change as well as with Spring coming so soon...let's get this party started! Hop on over to all the blogs along the way!

If you've hopped over from Anita at http://www.anitaandbugs.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place. If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and would like to join our SweetSassyDiva Birthday Blog hop and FUN then, please start at the beginning with Bobbi Jo's blog at http://sweetsassydiva.com/  because...starting at the start is always SMART! :)

We have a WONDERFUL Grand Prize for one lucky hopper that is donated by Bobbi Jo!  It is a cricut cartridge called Sophie.



To be eligible, please visit each blog hop stop leaving a comment also, become a follower at http://sweetsassydiva.com/ and be sure to leave a comment!

One random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, March 14th, giving you plenty of time to finish the hop.

My project for the first day of this blog hop is a treat bag that we will be giving guests at my grandson's birthday party.  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the bag (I can't remember the size because I played with different sizes) and B is for Boy to cut the sock monkey at a height of 4 inches.  I used the My Minds Eye Party Time stack for the bag and Bazzill cardstock for the sock monkey.  We'll fill these treat bags with all kinds of little toys and candy.  Here is my treat bag:



What would a blog hop be without blog candy?  I'm giving away a Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder.  All you have to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment on today's and tomorrow's posts (I'd also love it if you become a follower), along with a way to contact you.  I will draw a winner, using random.org, on Wednesday, March 14th.

Thank you for checking out my project. I hope that you will become a follower of http://sweetsassydiva.com/ and my blog and leave us a comment.

The fun doesn't end here though so be sure to hop on over to Dana at http://papermemories4u.blogspot.com/.
