We are celebrating Bobbi Jo's (SweetSassyDiva) birthday this weekend March 10th and 11th.   Each day will be a new project and be sure to check out the yummy blog candy giveaways!

I am so happy that you could join us for this super fun Blog Hop showcasing Birthday Themed fun!

One random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, March 14th, giving you plenty of time to finish the hop.

So one more time I want to wish Bobbi Jo a big Happy Birthday.  
For my project today I made an altered composition book using the same 7 Gypsies Lillie paper that I used to make Bobbi Jo's card yesterday.  I used Kate's ABC for Bobbi Jo's name cut at 1.5 and the same vintage ribbon and embellishments from my stash.  I also made a tie on the side with Seam Binding colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  The edge of the cover where paper meets the binding was covered with cream colored rick rack I got at Christmas.  I hope she enjoys her card and her altered composition book.

For my blog candy I will be giving one $10 gift card to either Michaels or Joanns (your choice) for the three days of blog hops I am participating in for the month of March.  All comments left March 10 and 11th for Bobbi Jo's Birthday Blog Hop and for the Memories in Time Easter Blog Hop that I am participating in on March 24th will be put in a random drawing.  So if you comment each of these three days you will have three chances to win.  I would also appreciate if you are a follower.

Thank you for checking out my project. I hope that you will become a follower of and leave a comment. The fun doesn't end here though so be sure to hop on over to my dear creative  friend
