Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Blog Hop!!

*** For The Girly Girl Birthday Hop, Click HERE!!! ***

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Blog Hop!! 
Today we are celebrating Lisa's (owner/designer of PPPR) birthday! She had a plan for this hop, but we (the Design Team plus guests) have a plan of our OWN because we LOVE her!!!! ;) We are all making special birthday projects using some files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store AND since birthdays are all about celebrating with friends and  giving gifts, we decided to add guests to the lineup and giveaway a TON of prizes!! These awesome prizes include fun twine, stamp sets and gift certificates to some of our favorite crafty stores!! You seriously do NOT want to miss a single stop in this hop!!  

If you are coming to here from Jessica's blog you are in the right place! If you have just stumbled upon this hop, make sure to head back to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog! But remember - and this is important! - Lisa does NOT have the correct lineup on her blog, because she doesn't know there has been a few ADDITIONS to the lineup thanks to her DT!! SURPRISE, Lisa!! :) Lisa will direct you to the correct blog, but after that please disregard her lineup!! 

Now onto my project!! 


I LOVE this little panda and use this file allll the time. If I were able to celebrate Lisa's birthday with her, I know we would be having a drink, so I added a little glass of champagne to its hand!

Here is what I used to make my card...
- Birthday Panda Cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
- Champagne Cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
- Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set from Jaded Blossom
- Paper from the So Happy Together Echo Park 6x6 pad
- glossy accents
- white gelly roll pen
- ribbon

Since it's such a special occasion, Lisa has designed a super CUTE freebie that you can grab from her blog for free Saturday and Sunday ONLY!!


Make sure you get your hands on that!!

Lisa ALSO has an awesome package to give away to one lucky hopper!! 


For a chance to win, you must be a follower of each blog and also leave a comment on each blog. For extra chances, you can also 'LIKE' Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons on Facebook and/or sign up for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Newsletter. A random winner will be chosen for the prize on Tuesday, September 24th. Only US or Canadian mailing addresses please. 

With our blog hop also comes a new Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Challenge!! The theme of the challenge is Birthday and you can link up your projects at the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog until Sunday, October 12th for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the store. We can't wait to see what you create using PPPR files!! 

A TON of the blogs on this hop are having giveaways, and this blog is no exception!! :) I LOVE Lisa's Superhero Cutting Files so I thought the perfect giveaway would be a set of the Superhero stamps from Jaded Blossom!! This set goes PERFECTLY with all Lisa's Superhero files!!


WHEW!! That's a LOT of info!! :) 
Now onto the next stop in the hop!! Head on over to Monica's blog!! 


Here is the CORRECT hop lineup in case you get lost along the way!!
