Emma's Surprise Blog Hop! ~ Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone and welcome to Emma's Surprise Blog Hop!  It's Miss Emma's birthday today and we, her design team wanted to SURPRISE her with a special birthday hop!  I have to tell you that there is a lot going on today.  Not only do we have this hop for her, but Miss Emma is having her Throwback Thursday Challenge!  There lots of prizes too, so make sure you go to all the blogs and leave a comment for more chances to win the HUGE stamp giveaway!!!!

You should have arrived here from Leanne's, if not you'll want to head over to Micia's for the start!
Emma loves polka dots so I knew that I had to create with them!  And since this is a Throwback Thursday Challange, I had to use balloons, cake, or a party hat.  As you can see I choose balloons!


recipe:
Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge
balloons
Hemp Twine
Seam Binding Ribbon
My Minds Eye and PTI paper
rhinestone brad, ink

The FABULOUS Giveaway for the HOP are the following stamp set by My Creative Time:
Game Night
Slam Dunk
Sports Sentiments
Classy & Fabulous
Stitched Lollipop Holder

Don't forget that at My Creative Time, Emma is still having her Throwback Thursday Challenge so be sure to participate!  She's giving away a Cuttlebug this time around!!!
