Bugaboo is Two


Happy 2nd Birthday Bugaboo!! And Welcome to our Birthday Blog Hop. You should have arrived from Laurie's Blog

But if you came just to visit little ol' me, feel free to start from the BEGINNING OF THE HOP! To celebrate, follow along as we present you with Birthday themed creations, such as the card I made for my Dad who is turning 76 years old this year:

I couldn't resist using Gus - Collect Wrinkles for his special occasion. The layout is Splitcoaststampers SC327, and I added plenty of sewing.

A closer look at this old guy. This is also a kick off of this weeks Saturday challenge at Catch the Bug: Birthday! There will also be mini-challenges all week long at Catch the Bug to keep the celebration going!

Other Hop Details:
  • Grand Prize Winner - You must 1) complete the blog hop, 2) play the regular Saturday Challenge and 3) play ALL mini challenges. The winner will receive 1 FREE SET PER MONTH for all of 2012.
  • 2nd Place - One randomly selected participant of ALL mini challenges will be a Bugaboo Guest Designer for the months of February, March & April plus receive the New Release Set for the week.
  • LEAVE a LITTLE LOVE - That's right, leave a comment for a chance to win the image used in my Birthday card!!

Have a great hop and your next stop is Lori:
