Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to us
Happy Birthday dear Banana Frog
Happy Birthday to youuuuu!Mornin'
please excuse the quality of the singing - I'm a bit croaky this time in the morning.... croaky:.. frog ?! get it. ... oh nevermind, lets get on with the fun of the blog hop which this month has a BIRTHDAY theme.
So follow the links around and don't forget to leave comments wherever you go 'cos there are prizes/pressies to be received... each of the Froglets (thats us on the design team!) will each be giving a prize to one frog fan (thats you!) who comments on our blogs... which is very nice don't you think! lol
So don't forget to comment - you've got to be in it to win it as they say! Also leave a comment on the Banana Frog blog as there's more prizes to win over there...
So here's what I made:
I was going to make cards but then I thought of something more practical - how about a book to hold all the dates of peoples birthdays so no-one gets forgotton? - because no-one likes to forget someones birthday do they?! I've also included anniversaries in my little book - 'cos they're quite important too aren't they?! - all dates that should be remembered!
To decorate this book I've used the stamps sets Journaling, Super Dreamy, and Pharmacy - some of my all time favourite BF sets.... These are such great versatile stamp sets.
The book is fairly small - 10x20cm. I used 3 colours to stamp on the white and Kraft cardstock pages - tumbled glass & pumice stone distress inks and archival black - I like to keep the colour schemes simple and then embellish on top which I've done here with stickles, gems, and fabric embellishments - again some of my favourite elements.
I stamped circles to add the dates and names into, and when it was an anniversary I added a heart to identify it. The little lined journaling squares are for notes and other dates.
Right that's me done - I hope you enjoyed your visit, now 'hop' on over to see what Michelle's bringing to the Banana Frog birthday bash (I love a bit of aliteration!)... don't forget to comment! You can find Michelle here!
