'It's a RAINBOW party' Blog Hop!!

Hey Everyone!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am to be hosting this 'It's a Rainbow Party!' Blog Hop today!!! I have some SUPER talented and sweet ladies joining me today who are going to blow you away with their projects!! 



I have such a great reason to celebrate - my little girls turn(ed) 2 & 4 this month!! 

Bria turns four on August 30th... I have never seen anyone more enthusiastic with a greater zest for life than Bria. She is so outgoing and really is the life of the party wherever she is! 



Brittyn turned two on the 9th of August... She is our little Princess -  dainty, pretty and girly girl (with the diva attitude to match)!! She is super smart and usually really sweet, other when the terrible twos take over! :) 



Now that I'm done introducing (bragging?? :)) about my girls, back to the hop!! :)

I thought this year I would have a joint party for them and invite all their little friends. I've had RAINBOWS on the brain, and Bria and I saw a rainbow cake this summer and from that came the idea for the theme of their Birthday Party - AND of course, this hop!!! :) 

First off, I want to tell you about all the BLOG CANDY being given away by some awesome and generous sponsors!!! 

*  Flirty Girl stamp set from Pink By Design 


* $25 gift certificate from Pretty Little Studio 
* $10 gift certificate from the 3 Girl Jam
Prize pack put together by yours truly... 


To be eligible for these prizes, please make sure you leave a comment (with a way to contact you) on each of the blogs in the hop before midnight (MST) on August 17th. I would love if you would become a follower of my blog, but I won't force you... :) Random winners will be chosen and announced early next week my blog!!!!

Here is the picture we used to inspire us for our projects... 


How much FUN is this?!?! 

NOW... onto my project!!!! :) 

I had to make something for their party (which is on August 27th). I thought I would try my hand at my very first banner!! 




I used the Rainbow Party digital paper pack by Lilly Bimble Digitals, Rainbow Pretty graphics by Jessica Wieble Illustrations from MyGrafico as well as my Silhouette Cameo, to make my banner. The rosettes (from the Silhouette store) are cut using Momenta paper. 

Now onto my my great friend Jessica's blog - Jessica's Craft Shaque!!! 

JUST in case you get lost, here is the list of amazing crafters in this hop!!
