It's hard to believe that just over a year ago, Paper Sundaes was just a thought in my head! My dear friend Shana was feeling a bit down, and I thought that starting a challenge blog was just what she needed! She and I are very different though. I have to think things through, take an idea, look at it from one angle, move it around, look at it from another angle... I'm definitely not the type to jump into things feet first! So I kept my idea very quiet in my head, knowing that I'd better have my thoughts in order, because I knew that as soon as I mentioned it to Shana, she would be off and running! LOL Sure enough, within days of mentioning it to her, Paper Sundaes went from a thought to reality!
And now here we are at our first birthday celebration! To celebrate, we want to share the joy with all of our crafty friends, so we have a BUNCH of prizes in store for you! If you've just stumbled across our hop, you should head to Paper Sundaes to read up about the hop and our prizes and start your journey there! If you are currently on our hop, you should be arriving here from Shana's blog. At each blog you need to collect your word and comment on their Celebration post, and then at the end of the hop, post your sentence on Paper Sundaes! Don't post it here! It's a secret. :)
My card today uses a Pure Innocence digi kindly provided to me by Heather Ellis. I just love her little girls, they are all so adorable! She also has several other lines, including a super cute line of snowmen that I am already planning on using next Christmas! I've used one of my favorite challenges, paper piecing.
I've paired her up with some cute My Mind's Eye papers called Fine and Dandy. This card has a ton of layers, so it's really heavy! Here's a few shots of the inside.
First the top:

And now to finish off your hop, I suppose you'd like me to tell you what my secret word is to finish off your sentence? Okay, okay, I've held you hostage long enough! The last word of our secret sentence is 'girls'.
After you leave here, hop back to Paper Sundaes and leave your sentence on our blog hop post to get entered into the draw for all of those fantastic prizes! Don't forget to enter the challenge this week as well, since we also have a bunch of prizes for that, too! Thanks so much for making Paper Sundaes such a success!
