Urban Anthology Birthday Blog Hop!

Welcome to the first ever Urban Anthology Birthday Blog Hop...thanks so much for joining in!
(Note: This is a progressive blog hop and my blog is number 1 of 8. For more rules and details, please visit the Urban Anthology Blog)

For my birthday project, I created a layout using a giant birthday hat as part of the background. I simply cut out a patterned paper hat shape, and added stitching, a ruffle, and a bow!









So, the first element to gather and create with for this blog hop is:

1. Include a giant birthday-themed shape as part of your layout background
(examples include a hat, a cupcake, a balloon, a candle)

You now have element #1 of 8...for the next element, visit Deanna Misner's blog.

When you've gathered all 8 elements, getting 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!


For a chance at a $5 gift certificate to the Urban Anthology store, please leave a comment here, answering the following question:

Do you sing the traditional "Happy Birthday To You" song in your family, or do you add your own twist or sing a different song entirely?

  11. We usually just go with tradition, but DH has several other "Happy Birthday" songs recorded by different musical artists, so some years he has made tapes of birthday songs for me and played them for me on my birthday.
