rhonda and amy's birthday blog hop today nov 1st

Happy birthday to my dear friend amy, I made this card for her it says smile, inside says its your birthday, unfornately my granddaughter has done something with the card I had ready to mail. sorry amy this is what your card looked like. But I do have a gift for you and I will get it mailed. It is below this card.
just a note my post may be posted alittle earlier than the rest so if you visit them and dont see a project that is why, I just have mine set for this time always. that way I know for sure it will post. ha ha

Its your very own giraffe tu-tu bag Remember when we talked on phone and you said you loved that tu-tu that one of our guest designers made for her baby and you said you would wear one. ha well I dont have you here to measure it correctly so here is you a tu-tu purse for a tu-tu good of a friend. Now I want to thank you and all of my wonderful blog friends who have made this day so fun for me and amy. Hope everyone enjoys this special day as much as we will. Now lets get started with this happy occassion. and just a reminder we are celebrating all month over at http://www.decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/ so dont forget to link up your birthday projects you have made.

I will be giving away some candy for my birthday. If you are kinda enough to leave comments on all my special friends and become followers if you arent already I will put your name in drawing to win a free mini album for yourself and for you to give to a special person of your choice. so just incase your name is drawn be thinking of what you would like and what you think a friend or relative would like and make sure you know there address so I can suprise them from you. thank each and everyone of you for making this a special 50th for me and making amys birthday a special special day. hugs cant wait to see what all my friends have in store for me lets get hopping and party!

Once upon a time (okay, once upon two times nearly a decade apart), two girls were born... These girls were both visited by their fairy godmothers and granted very special talents... One was given the talent of creating the most beautiful mini scrapbook albums while the other was given the talent of creating some really amazing explosion boxes... Each of these girls would one day begin blogging, and this is how they would meet...Somewhere over the rainbow, you'll find the lovely Rhonda... Where scrap happens and paper flies... And somewhere near the zoo, you'll find dear Amy... Where giraffes prance and frolic to her heart's content... One day, these two lives collided and Rhonda and Amy have become forever friends!! Lovely Rhonda had this incredible idea for a new twist on a challenge blog, so she contacted dear Amy and asked her to take care of the "technical" side... For many months, they have enjoyed CELEBRATING the get-togethers and parties that make life fun by showcasing the DECORATIONS that others share... And THAT is how the Decorate to Celebrate! challenge blog began...Today, it's time to CELEBRATE good times and good friends with this "BIRTHDAY PARTY" Blog Hop and Birthday Project Link-Up that will last all month long!! Rhonda, who is turning the big 5-0 this year deserves a month-long celebration, don't ya think??? And Amy, who will forever stay 29 (for the 12th time) has always been a BIG believer in the "Birth-month Celebration"... Soooooo... After the hop has ended, you'll be able to create a "Birthday Party" themed project and LINK IT UP at the Decorate To Celebrate! challenge blog!! Usually, your entry needs to be a decoration or party supply, but THIS MONTH (and this month only), you can link up ANY Birthday Party project (cards, layouts, 3D Art...). We'll be giving out some Birthday Presents all month long, but you'll need to enter to WIN!! You'll find more details on the challenge blog... For now, let's get hopping!! :)Rhonda and Amy have assembled a few of their creative friends to join them on this Birthday Party Adventure through Bloggie-Land...
