Stamp TV Alumni Blog Hop Challenge

You probably came here from Joan Erwin's blog.  Didn't she have a great project?  She is a very talented lady.  As you know Carolina at Stamp TV lined up an Alumni blog hop that started at Stamp TV.  All you need to do is follow the links on each blog. You are in for an INSPIRATIONAL hop!  Carolina asked us to create a card or project based on this fun gift basket from 1-800 Flowers:


This was easy because I have a grandson's birthday party next weekend and I wanted to take some toppings for ice cream.  All the festive colors helped me to make this project to take to the party:
It's a little basket with 2 ice cream toppings and candles for the cake.  The bottles are recycled Starbucks bottled coffee bottles and a recycled little metal basket.   I used Melanie Muenchinger's Candles on your Cake.  I'll post pictures of the party next week.

Now go see what Kay Simmons has made.  I know she has done a fabulous job.  She will then direct you where to go next.  Have fun with this hop and get inspired!

Too stinkin' cute! Joy, your grandson is going to think you are da bomb for bringing all of those yummies for the ice cream. Will be "borrowing" this idea for sure!

Now that's a PERFECT grandma/nana addition to a birthday party. Especially if the grandma/nana is as talented as this one!!! A great idea, Joy.
