Celeste’s Birthday Hop

IMG_2251



Good morning crafty friends,

Today we are celebrating the incomparable Celeste's birthday. She is one of the amazing designers here. You may remember her from the several AMAZING projects she showcased during our recent 25 days of Crafting Extravaganza!

I have been personally blessed getting to know this truly generous and kind hearted blogger! If you have come from Amy’s blog then you are in the right place. If you would like to start from the beginning, please head over to Celeste’s blog and enjoy!!!

So here is the project I created. This layout was created with Celeste in mind. She is a “butterfly” person and she loves her pinks and purples. So I created this new cutting file set called QT Patootie Celeste a sweet little “butterfly fairy”. She will be available soon on PCW. I created this layout from a brand new paper and embellishment line called “dreamscape” from Quick Quotes. It will be premiering at CHA.

Celeste, thank you so much for being such a wonderful friend. I am grateful the Lord allowed our paths to cross. I pray that you have a wonderfully blessed birthday and that your coming year will be filled with health, happiness and hope in the Lord.

So now on to Paula’s blog to see what sweet treasure she has in store for you!

Here is the complete hop line up if you get lost along the way. Be sure to hit them all and leave a little love. Also, Celeste has lined up some great prizes too!
