Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows Blog Hop!




Well, Good Morning everyone, and Welcome to the Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows Blog Hop!! If you just stopped by to check out my blog, be sure not to miss out on any of the inspiration or giveaways by hopping to all the blogs on the line up. If you came from Helen's Blog, you are in the right spot!

This blog hop is in celebration of KateylnCo's birthday with just a little twist from the regular birthday blog hop. We are being inspired by the song written by Lesley Gore, http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XQmBXEZEYtg.



To be entered all you need to do is Hop Today and on each stop along the way leave a comment! You have until Thursday to Hop and KatelynCo will be announcing the winner on Friday! This blog hop is not requiring you to follow each of the blogs, but we'd love it if you joined our blogs. Emma is giving away the Cocktails stamp set from Pink by Design.This set has fruits, glasses, and umbrellas! Perfect for Summer and a very versatile set In Other Words. Just leave a comment on each stop to be entered! Winner will be selected at random!
I created a mini album for this hop! It is for my new and dear friend's Daughter, Mekayli (Me-Kay-Lee).  Wandy Pizarro (http://www.greenapplescrapper.blogspot.com/) is Mommy and has been such a treasure since I met her. It was really an off chance, and she had commented on the Easter Baskets that I was doing with Sheffields Place. I responded, and we kept in contact.

First, I wanted to show you the cover! Isn't that so sweet! I used my Sew Easy thread and gloobers and wound the thread from the center to the outside and snipped it and burned the edges to prevent fraying.

Products Used:  

  • Me and My Big Ideas Happy Birthday Paper pack
  • Exposed 6x6 Mini Acrylic Album from ScrapWorks
  • Pink By Design Sentiment Stamps ( I also challenged myself to only use one stamp designer on this album, which, since they are Pink By Design, that wasn't very difficult :) I absolutely LOVE Sarah's sentiment stamps, background stamps and die cuts)
  • Doodlebug Design Inc stickers and embellishments
  • Sew Easy Twine
  • Various buttons, rhinestones, pearls, stickles and other embellishments, and ribbons from my stash








This Mini really was easy to do once I got the Acrylic Album covered in the paper and the sides inked. I used frames, candy stickers, Lollipop stickers, cupcakes, everything sweet and pink that a little Lady would LOVE :)

I filled up this envelope with confetti hearts for a BIG surprise for BOTH Wandy and Mekayli :)


Thank you SO much for stopping by and celebrating Emma's Birthday with us! Don't forget to wish her the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!! ;)


Also, I am doing a fun little giveaway for those that are friends of Homespun Elegance! To be entered, all you have to do is be a Friend! Current and New fans welcome!
