Jen’s Birthday Hop Day 1

Good morning crafty friends,
Welcome to the cookingwithcricut.com and  the papercraftingworld.com  Designers June Blog Hop. Get ready for two days of great projects with each day showcasing different designers and projects.

This month our hop theme is all about Birthdays and one special one in mind. Our wonderful DT Coordinator Jen Hudson’s birthday just happened to fall on Saturday so we decided to make birthday inspired projects with a “Jen” theme in mind. Our go to gal is a die-hard Florida Gator Fan. So we decided to use elements on our projects that reflected Our GATOR FOR LIFE Gal’s FANCY;  Florida, The Florida Gators and anything that would make you think of the Sunshine State. Jen is the last on our blog line up so be sure to hop through and leave her some extra special love at the end!

Here is today’s Hop Line Up. Be sure to come back here if you get lost along the way :)
Melin-You’re Here
Madison-Next

So here is the project I came up with based on our theme. I used SVG’s from the Flamingo Celebrates set from PCW.

What would a blog hop be without some blog candy. So here is what we have.
Every crafter can use these. Some great Prima flowers, some Doodlebug Gems, Some Eyelets, Stickles and some Twine from the Twinery.

This set also has some wonderful Primas, more Gems, Eyelets, Stickles and Twine.
