Amy & Rhonda's Birthday Party Blog Hop!

This hop officially starts at 9 am but because I have to work(ick!), my post is up early!
Welcome to Amy and Rhonda's Birthday Party Hop! I have a tale to tell you, are you ready?? 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... Along the way, you'll find some incredibly creative projects to celebrate Rhonda and Amy... If you came here from Sheena then you are in the right spot!! If you have just happened upon my blog, I'd love for you to join the PARTY so CLICK HERE to start at Rhonda's blog so you don't miss any of the FUN!!
Both Amy and Rhonda know how much I appreciate not only their creativity but our new friendship as well. It's hard to make gifts for two of the most creative people I know but here goes!

As you know, Rhonda is turning 50 and I think she is funny as all get out. So, I think she will see the humor in my gift to her(I hope!). Ya know how old ladies suck on butterscotch and well, to some people turning old sucks?
Ha! Ha! I used a clear bucket and using vinyl (for the first time), spelled out "50 sucks" and added butterscotch to her bucket! get it??
For Amy's gift I also used a clear bucket and decorated it with Coredinations paper(she loves giraffes),a rosette I made,a beautiful fabric flower from Maya Road, a stick pin I made and some gold and black tulle.
Thanks for checking out my project, your next stop will be the very talented Carri (whom I learned how to make the stick pin from!)however, before you go be sure to leave a comment on this post so that you'll be entered to WIN the GRAND PRIZE! Here's the entire line-up!! You'll finish up at Decorate to Celebrate
where you'll be able to start entering YOUR Birthday Party projects for a chance at some Birthday Prizes tomorrow!! This challenge will last ALL month long, so we hope you'll join us for the CELEBRATION!!
