Happy Birthday Memory Works Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Memory Works Birthday Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from  Kelly Holbrook's blog you are in the right place.  Memory Works turns 10 this month and we are celebrating!  Today we are having another fun blog hop.  I am so excited to be here to celebrate with you all and  I  hope you draw some inspiration for your next birthday celebration.  For today's hop I used several different product lines to create my projects for the birthday.  First off I decided that you can't have a party if you don't invite anyone so here is an invitation to my garden party!  I used pink cardstock, and elements from the Simple Stores Fabulous line. I die cut the large dragon fly using my sizzix and the small dragon flies are a punch I have.

And of course once you accept an invitation to a party you need to bring a card so I created a really simple birthday card using cardstock, two stamps from Stampin' Up and some scraps from the May Memory Works Express Kit...

As the hostess I want to make sure my guests feel welcome so I created treat boxes to give each guest that I will fill with goodies.  For this treat box I used a fast food french fry box as a pattern then I embellished with patterned cardstock, sticker letters and chipboard stickers. 

The final item for my garden party is a drinking straw label so guests don't mix up their drinks.  I used scraps for this project and letter stickers to personalize.

There will be a *prize for one lucky winner ! Leave a comment at each blog you visit along the hop for more chances to win! You have until midnite to leave your comments. Winner will be announced on the Memory Works blog on Wednesday, June 27th. *Prize is sponsored by Memory Works. Thank you again for joing us today for our birthday blog hop.  Below is a list of all the blogs participating so you can visit everyone!  Be sure to leave a comment on my blog because I will be giving away a prize at the end of the hop.  If you are not already a follower of my blog I'd love to have you start following me.

Love the party box idea. Too cute.


great projects and love treat box. I am a new follower of your blog.


Love the ideas with labeling straws...good for kids birthday parties the use of the fry pattern for goody pouches :-) Great Job! Party favors could be seeds could split a package between several people making your own paper pouches to scrap and put them in...make some paper flowers as well if they are scrappers too that they could use on pages of their own. Love it...the ideas are flowing :-)


Great ideas, cute theme, and adorable projects :) Love the french fry box!


What great ideas!! I have the "Happy Birthday to you" stamp, so I can totally get inspiration from that card!
