April Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!
All my rowdy friends are coming over to party!
At this blog hop, it's a party!! Our fellow blog creators have come up with awesome projects from cards, to decor, to all sorts of ways to make your Birthday bash the best! Here at this hop, you get all the presents! Many of the blogs will offer their own "presents" (blog candy) and I'll be giving away a Cricut Cartridge- Birthday Bash!

So let the party begin!!  If you came from Jearise's blog then you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by my blog first, you will want to start at Janet's blog .

For my project, I made little gift boxes from the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart.
I cut the largest box out at 11 inches and the smaller one out at 10 inches.
Sentiment is from the celebrations stamp kit that comes with the Art Philosophy bundle.
The rose on top was also cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3 inches.  I used a paint brush and my Lagoon ink pad from Close to My heart and painted the rose so there was a hint of color.

For my blog candy, I am giving away a petite "My Acrylix" stamp set from Close to my Heart.
