Blog Hop Winner and July Sneak Peek

What an awesome turnout for the Urban Anthology blog hop!! Sounds like most of you sing the traditional birthday song, although several of you add the "smell like a monkey" part, hehe! In my family, we sing this:

"Happy Birthday, Happy Happy Birthday!
This is your day, to have a lot of fun.
We're all waiting for the celebration!
For the celebration to begin.
Blow out the candles on the cake & make a wish...
Serve everybody's favorite dish (favorite dish, ba ba buhm)
Happy Birthday, Happy Happy Birthday!
This is your day, so Happy Birthday to YOUUUUU!"

LOL, that's just how we rock it out! :)

And now for the winner......The winner of the $5 Urban Anthology GC goes to:

Elizabeth Bailey, who wrote, who is the traditional birthday song type. :)

Elizabeth, send me an email and we'll get you hooked up with that gift certificate!


And now for a sneak peek of Urban Anthology's July Kit, "Grandma's Kitchen:


Check back later for an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek of the custom journaling tags I designed for this kit, shhhhhhh, don't tell! :)

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?
