Paper Maniac Birthday Hop!!!

This is my first official post as a member of the Paper Maniac design team and it's Paper Maniac's BIRTHDAY!!!! You should have come here from the lovely Amy Tsuruta's blog if not, please go back to the Paper Maniac blog to start the hop. You don't want to skimp on this hop, leave comments along the way since the prize you can win is HUGE! Check the Paper Maniac blog for the prize pics and details.
The theme for this hop is celebration! After all, what's a birthday without a huge party? I tried to make some extra special stuff for this post but I think I fell as little short. I wanted to bake cupcakes but I'm really sick so I didn't get a chance. So, let's pretend the refrigerated brownie is a cupcake, ok?

Ok, so I used Echo Park Paper Company's Life if Good for this set. This paper is so pretty and SO high quality. The alphabet stickers that I used are from the Echo Park kit as well. The stamps are from a Unity Retail Store kit which Paper Maniac carries. This one is from last April, Total Cuteness. Everything is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and I embellished with some Bazzill Bling.

I wanted to explain the favor just a little. It's a candy holder and a bookmark. So, once you eat all the candy (you can use lollis, pixie sticks, or even pencils) you can still use this favor as a bookmark. Isn't that fun? I'll do a tutorial on this if anyone is interested.

Ok, now I want to tell you about ALL the ways you can WIN!!

1. Do this blog hop, you're on your way!

2. "Like" Paper Maniac on Facebook, one person will a prize package

3. Go to Paper Maniac and make a WISH LIST. Each day, someone will win $25 worth of items from their list!
