Party Decor Blog Hop

Minced Paper

Welcome to our Party Decor Blog Hop. We have a fantastic group of ladies who love to make party decorations and we are excited to share our projects with you today! If you just happened to find my blog, thank-you so much. However, so you don't miss awesome projects or the chance to win blog candy, you will want to start at the beginning at http://mincedpaper.blogspot.com.

Now on to my project: For this hop I created a banner for my Cousin Linda's Surprise Retirement party. Party colors were Pink, Black and white zebra print.  Here she is Very Surprised !!!! 

It reads "Congrats on your retirement Linda"


I used the Arts Philosophy cartridge to make all my cuts for the banner, oval center and flowers (I wrote down all the sizes but misplaced it and since I made this the night before the party--LOL it's all a blur!!!  I can't remember the sizes

My pictures didn't come out that great...the banner was very glittery/sparkely. I embossed the center ovals with my cuttlebug "Swiss Dots"


The swirls are from a pack of stickers that I purchased at Michaels 

Hope you like it!!!!  Enjoy the rest of your HOP!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
