PPPR Happy Birthday Blop Hop!

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Blog Hop!! hold on to your seat- you won't believe what is in store for you. We have a Free file, prizes, prizes, prizes...well you get the idea. Now that we have your attention, let me explain, you'll want to read the entire post!
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 (LOL) because we LOVE her!!!! SURPRISE, LISA!! 

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 invite a few guests to the line up and giveaway a TON of prizes!!  Thee 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 here from Lisa's blogyou 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 that there have been a few ADDITIONS to the lineup thanks to her DT!!  
Lisa will direct you to the correct blog, but after that please disregard her lineup!! 

Now onto my project for this fantastic celebration!!  I decided to do an easel card using Lisa's newest cut file set, Make a Wish.  I just love this cute little girl blowing out all her candles.  
I used the row of candles, also from this cut file set, on the inside of my card. I finished the card off with some embellishments of ribbon, a pearl in her hair and some stickles. The sentiments are from a couple different My Creative Time stamp sets in my stash. 

Of course Lisa 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!! 

Wait- there's more!!! 
Lisa also has a gift for everyone who completes the hop. This special Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Bird-day cut file.  
You can pick him up at her BLOG. If you miss the birdy he will be available for sale at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons starting Monday 09/23/2013. And, don't forget to pick up the Friday Freebie this week, gator(wink, wink). 

Still more!!! 
As I mentioned early in this post, we have several friends joining us in the hop and these guests along with the Design Team, have  gifts to giveaway. Hello, it's a Birthday party!!! Just leave me a comment on this post for a chance to win my gift, the BugBites Candy Speaks stamp set. I will draw a winner on Tuesday, September 24th as well. 
There are plenty more "gifts" along the way, but you have to get hoppin' to have a chance to win them.

So let's head over to Julie's blog who is a special guest designer helping us celebrate Lisa's birthday. 

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