50th Birthday Luau Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the 50th Birthday Luau Blog Hop!  I'm so glad you can join us.  

Grab a refreshment, sit back and enjoy all three days of the 50th Birthday Luau Hop.  It runs from August 29-31 so please be sure to check back each day to see what new project each of our talented ladies has in store for you.

If you are just coming from Pendra at Pendra's Place, then you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Barbara at Craftin' With Barbara.

Since Barbara's birthday is in August, she always wanted to have a luau.  So our theme for this hop is of course Luau Themed. 

Here is the lineup in case you get lost.
Ashley- <----You Are Here
Tammy- <----Your Next Stop

For my first day, I decided to go with a very popular piece of luau jewelry.  I hope you like it.

Paper, beads and craft string are from my stash
Lindy Stamp Gang-Starburst Sprays in Hottie Patottie Pink, Blue Hawaiian Blue, Marigold Yellow Orange
Flower Shoppe cricut cartridge

I took another picture with a little more brightness so you can see the shimmery goodness.

For my blog candy.  One person will win a $20 gift card to their choice of Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win, you MUST leave a comment on all 3 days of the hop along with a way to reach you.  Extra entries if you become a friend on my blog and on Facebook.  I will use and announce the winner on Thursday, September 1st.

Day 1 Blog Candy:  Cuttlebug Disney NEMO Combo Embossing & Die Set

Very fun.!! Love it.!!

La idea esta estupenda, y saldrían a un bajo costo que comprarlos ya hechos. ADemás como son hechos de forma personalizada quedan más bonitos.
