Bella 3rd Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Bella Birthday Bash Blog Hop! If you happened upon my blog first you can find the start of the hop HERE!!

I used the JavaBellas stamp! Isn't it adorable! I thought the off-white ink looked great on this brown card stock! The papers I used are from Cosmo Crickets Gretel line. Please enjoy the rest of the blog hop, and don't forget to leave love along the way!

Three gift certificates for $100 in Bella Bucks will be hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Monday, December 7 at the Stamping Bella Blog. MWAH!
