Birthday Card Blog Hop...

For those that are just joining me, you will want to go to the Bella Blvd's blog, so you can start at the beginning of the blog hop. You don't want to miss anything.

Stephanie is the owner of Bella Blvd & one of my very Best Friends! Here is a card I made for her using the Sophisticates line!
Happy Birthday Stephanie! I hope today is a fabulous day filled with love & laughter! xoxo

I have also added a few photos of Stephanie & me. We have been friends for about 8 years. We have been very lucky to see the world together. I couldn't ask for a better friend or traveling companion.

Studying Abroad in Italy! 2005

Hanging out & relaxing in Myrtle Beach! 2006

Summer CHA show ~ 2007

Celebrating the 4th of July ~ 2008

Vacation to Vegas in 2009 for my Golden Birthday!

Scrapbooking last December together at The Scrapbook Store where we met & worked together. 2010

I have been very blessed to travel with Stephanie on business trips to help her teach scrapbooking classes. This September we went to Minnesota to participate in our first Scrapfest! We had so much fun! ~ 2011

Please remember to go to Bella Blvd's blog to leave Stephanie a Birthday message! I hope you enjoyed seeing a couple more photos of her and learning more about our friendship.

Even thought it's Stephanie's birthday, we have some gifts for a few of you lucky readers as well! We know how generous and giving Stephanie is, and we know she would never have a fun blog hop, without a few giveaways up for grabs too. So we got permission from Robin, who works alongside Stephanie in the office, to pick TEN lucky winners, who will each receive a Bella Blvd collection. All you need to do to be entered in the random drawings, is to leave Stephanie your birthday wishes in the comment section. You have lots of opportunities to up your chances, since you can leave a comment on each blog you visit, as you go through the blog hop. There are 26 blogs, plus the Bella Blvd blog, for a total of 27 chances to get your name in the pot. We will randomly choose winners, from 10 randomly chosen blogs, and announce them on Friday!

For the next stop on the blog hop, you are going to go visit Loredana Bucaria -

Don't forget if you ever get lost you can always go back to the beginning at Bella Blvd's blog.
