Earth Day It’s My Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning crafty friends and welcome to the…Happy Earth Day…It’s My Birthday Blog Hop Hosted By: GabyCreates.com

We have a fun line up of great prizes AND some wonderful inspiration. If you are arriving here from GabyCreates.com, then you are off to a perfect start. If not, then just hop over to GabyCreates.com and get started! She has lots of great prizes available!

So here is my project for today.
earth day gaby blog hop
http://www.mypapercrafting.com/2011/04/earth-day-its-my-birthday-blog-hop.html
Here is a view of the entire layout. I used my Cricut to cut out these adorable little Turtles, the Flower Spray and the Super Cute tree. The cutting files will be available at PaperCraftingWorld.com by Saturday(tomorrow). The gorgeous patterned paper is from Quick Quotes. It is their new Mary's Garden Collection. It just looked like the perfect paper for this project!

Here is a close up of the cute little turtle sitting and enjoying the “earth”


tree closeup
Here is a close up of the "appliciously" cute tree. Even the apples have little bows :) I used Quick Quote's Green Tea Chalk Ink to edge the tree. It complimented their paper perfectly! What a great value too! Only $2.49 and let me tell you this will last you AWHILE!

.turtle walking close up
Here is a close up of the walking turtle. Another adorable by PaperCraftingWorld.com. I used the Pink Cheeks Chalk Ink by Quick Quotes for the Pink Pieces.

floral spray
Here is a close up of the floral spray cutting file.


scripture
Here is a verse I found that would be appropriate for today.

Thank you Gaby for all your hard work and for being such a wonderful person. For those who don’t know Gaby; she is such a wonderful lady.  Kind, thoughtful, caring and such a giver. I pray your birthday will be filled with abundant blessings!  Thank you so much for coming by. Have a wonderful day!
