Blog hop along with Buttons Galore and My Favorite Things!

If you are looking for the Want2Scrap, Graphic 45 and art glitter hop please click HERE.

Blog hops abound!  I'm here with another dream team, match made in crafty heaven....Buttons Galore and More and My Favorite Things!

Today I crafted up a fun way to wish someone a sweet birthday!  This Button and glitter covered cupcake has a styrofoam ball base set in a paper cupcake liner and adhered to a small wood candlestick as a base.

Birthdays are all about seizing the moment...and even possibly, the CUPCAKE ...and celebrating the birthday of all those special people in your life.

Check out that amazing paper daisy!  I was able to make that myself using the Die-namics Rolled Daisy from MFT.  Super cute right?  Especially topped with a BGM button!

My Favorite Things has teamed up with Buttons Galore & More to do a Blog Hop showcasing products from both companies! You’ll want to leave a comment on EACH designer’s blog because there is $100 in prizes up for grabs. MFT will be giving away 2, $25 Gift Certificates, and Buttons Galore & More will be giving away 2, $25 button assortments. The deadline to comment is July 29th and the winners of all prizes will be announced on July 30th on the MFT and BG&M blogs, so check back to see if you’ve won!  Good luck!

I used papers and elements from the so pretty Graphic 45 set called Olde Curiosity Shoppe.
