Surprise Party! Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Birthday Deborah!!! SURPRISE Blog Hop! Today is Deborah from Scrapping Mammas Birthday! Some of her awesome friends have decided to have a BIG SURPRISE BIRTHDAY HOP since we can't all be in the same place for a SURPRISE party! This is the next best thing!

This blog hop is a one day blog hop to wish a very special woman (fellow crafter) a very special Happy Birthday. So Happy Birthday Deborah (aka Scrapping Mama)!

If you are coming from Janet's Blog  you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning  HERE at Lisa's Blog and hop along with us.We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and keeping it a secret from Deborah. Which wasn't easy! You will visit some amazing bloggers who want to wish Deborah the Happiest Birthday EVER! We've each created a card or something extra special JUST for her!  You will see some lovely projects and even have a chance to win some blog candy.

Instead of making a card for Deborah, I decided to make her an altered clipboard which she can use as a frame for any type of picture.  (I wish the pictures were brighter but it is raining so I had to take the pictures inside - never the same as sunlit pictures)

The paper I used is "Where the Heart Is" by My Mind's Eye, misc ribbon, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Stampin' Up Tag and Edge Punch, Prima Flowers, staples, Zip Dry, Xyron, MS and SU adhesives.

The blog candy that I have decided to give away for this hop is an altered clipboard.  The winner (who will be chosen from the comments on Monday) will be able to choose her favorite colors for a personal touch)  I love making clipboards!  I hope you are enjoying the Surprise Hop so far.  I want to thank Lisa for inviting me to be a part of this exciting Surprise... I feel very honored to be a part of such a talented group of ladies!  Happy Birthday Deborah!!!   Now you are off to the very talented Lisa.
Here is the Birthday Girl!  Have a Wonderful Day!
