Urban Anthology Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Urban Anthology Birthday Blog Hop...thanks so much for joining in!

You should have reached my blog from the talented Miss Eva! (Please note: This is a progressive blog hop and my blog entry is number 7 of 8, so to start at the beginning, please click this link

My element to add to the project is patterned paper! Feel free to add your patterned paper in any fashion you would like to your project. You may wish to use patterned paper as your background, as a part of your mask, as something your have punched or even on your tag!

I have created a layout using entirely patterned paper for you to see. (I used the sketch posted at A Peek into for this layout) These two cuties are my grandbabies. This picture was taken at my grandson's 1st birthday party. Aren't they just adorable!! You now have 7 of the 8 elements!! For your final element to add, visit Pam’s blog here. Once you have you've gathered all eight elements, get creating, and don't forget to post your project in the Urban Anthology gallery by Sunday at Midnight Pacific Time for a chance to win the Urban Anthology Birthday Queen grand prize!

Just a couple of rules to remember:

1. To be eligible for the grand prize, layouts must include all 8 elements, one from each blog.

2. Layouts must be uploaded to the Urban Anthology gallery by Sunday, June 28th, Midnight Pacific Time.

Oh and as something fun, like the other ladies, I am giving away a $5.00 gift certificate to the Urban Anthology store. Just leave a comment in the comment section of my my blog answering this question - When you put candles on a birthday cake, do you load the cake with the age of the birthday person or do you just use one or two birthday number candles?

Susan....this layout is goooorgeous!!!! So love that picture, too!!! You did an amazing job!!! So glad you are part of the blog hop!!!!

If it's a child, I use the full amt of candles. If it's an adult, I usually don't have that many candles on hand! lol!

Stacey said...

I buy the number candles to show their age!

ellen s. said...

well, since my son turned 5 last year and i forgot candles all together and we had to use the #4 candle again, i would say no, LOL!

i love your layout!

Colleen said...

Such a pretty layout. It all depends on whose b-day it is. For the kids all candles go on it for me, no way I don't want the fire dept called.

KimR said...

It depends. Often it is just DH and I--so we just put one candle in so we have something to blow out...unless it is a biggie--then we load er up!

Kari said...

For kids I put the number of candles... for us adults... I just use numbers or a few candles... no need to start a fire,hehe.

Margie said...

Load the cake!

We use the number candle. Since we have a large stash of numbers, we forget to check and make sure we have the correct numbers, then we improvise. On the 35th birthday we were missing a "5" so I was "8"

That layout is AMAZING! I love the pp you used - and you used it so creatively!

I am too much in denial about my own age to ever the correct number of candles on the cake! And if I'm not getting older, than no one else in my family is either - lol!! So only a couple candles on our cakes!
