Gloria's Birthday Bash Blog Hop!



Welcome to Gloria's Birthday Blog Hop!  First off I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to our fabulous hostess Gloria!  I hope that all of your wishes come true and that you have a fabulous birthday weekend!  Thank you so much for asking me to be part of your special hop!  You should be arriving from Megan's blog MC2 Productions. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to start back at the beginning of the hop, please go to to the birthday girl's blog Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot!

My absolute favorite thing about the new Disney Classics Cricut cartridge is that I can FINALLY CUT A JIMINY CRICKET!!!  Look how handsome he is all decked out in his top hat and tails!




I used a combination of Core'dinations and Colorbok Pearlescent papers to cut Mr. Jiminy Cricket at 5".  The background patterned paper is from Bungle Jungle stack by Sassafras (which I LOVE).  The yellow buttons were from my stash and the blue organza ribbon is by Offray.

Now for the blog candy!  I just had to share some Disney goodies since Gloria and I share a love of all things Disney!  This includes a magnetic note pad, nylon tote bag and some birthday embellishments.  I will also be including a small package of the awesome Action Wobbles and maybe some other surprise goodies! 



To be eligible for a chance to win the blog candy, you must become a follower if you aren't already and leave one comment.  You will have until Sunday, April 10, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST to enter.  I will use Random org to draw the winners on Monday, April 11, 2011. Winner will have one week to contact me and claim their prize.

BLOG CANDY NOW CLOSED AT 158 COMMENTS 4/10/11 11:59 PM EST.  WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED.

You will have all weekend to complete this blog hop and there is some fabulous blog candy up for grabs so be sure to stop by each and every blog and leave a comment! 

Now I am honored to be sending you off to the super talented and always inspiring Emma of Creative Time for Me.  Please stop by and show her some blog love, you won't be sorry!  I just got a sneak peak of her layout and I love it!
