It's Krista Palakiko's birthday today and a few of us are throwing her a surprise birthday blog hop! If you have come here from Jessica's blog then you are on the right track and to get the complete list of those participating just hop on over to the very beginning of it all at the Lollipop Crafts blog. Why? Well besides getting to wish a fellow stamper a happy birthday, one lucky hopper will win a Birthday Surprise Prize!
All you need to do is hop along to each friend's blog, leave some love, then head back to the Lollipop Crafts blog and let them know that you completed the hop. And who knows, perhaps along the way some of Kris' friends might be giving away RAKs of their own. So be sure to check them all out. And the winner will be announced on Sunday, March 18th.
Lisa's blog is the next stop in the hop and remember, if you ever get lost along the way the master list is on the Lollipop Crafts blog.
My card for Kris features a slightly altered Baker Mae from Some Odd Girl and I paired her up with... yep, you guessed it... more Dear Lizzy Neapolitan. There was no help for it though, once I spotted those great balloons. I wiped away Mae's original open mouth with a baby wipe before stamping and then drew in a new, sweet smile for her. I don't know why but I just thought she would look great that way for Kris.
Happy Birthday Kris! I hope that your special day is full of sweet surprises! :)
