Dandylicious Creates Blogiversary Blog Hop

It seems that the only thing that gets me to post lately is a good old blog hop. 
is having her 1st blog anniversary and to mark this celebration she is hosting her first blog hop. I'm do glad that I as able to participate. I makes me accountable to post,lol 
The theme of the hop is Celebrations/Birthday/Anniversary.
We were ask to do anything so I did a Layout. It's my husbands Birthday on Sunday.This is the layout I did

I used the new Teresa Collins collection Calolina Breeze. I papers I used are Nellie,Gentry and Kayla. I also used some of the die-cuts and the some of the stickers from the collection.
I made a pull out for journaling. Below is how I add this to my layouts. I attach a ribbon so that you can't pull the journaling block all the way out. I also added foam squares just to raise it a bit.

I made the ribbon long enough so that the area that I want to journal on will be exposed when I pull it out. I just used the TH Tiny Attacher to the journaling block and use a foam square on the other side.

This is what it looks like when you pull it out.

As you can see I also used some paint. I've been painting alot lately. 
I've taken an online class and I have just fallen in love. I will do post on that next week :D
I used Claudine Hellmuth studio paints, TH distress crackle paints and Ranger Dabber acrylic paints.
I also used some flat back pearl and TH distress ink on the edges

Now we couldn't celebrate a birthday without a little RAK could we!

Edwina said...

I am a follower of your blog. My favorite b-day gift was a craft kit from S & H green stamps when I was a kid. I think I was 8 years old. We got only one gift for our birthdays so I remember most of them and this one was the best ever. It had about 6-7 projects in it. As you can see I am still creating.
I love your layout! It is great! I like the pull out card for journaling. I wish I understood how you keep it from coming out too far. I sure hope I don't miss your post on the painting for scraping. That sounds wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
