Mixed Up Media Chix Birthday Blog Hop! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!


Today the Mixed Up Media Chix's are having a blog hop with a birthday theme, and it's also Unity FWF!  I picked a birthday theme because today is my little chickie's 8th Birthday!  I can't believe how fast time went by from them being new born twins to being 8 year old twins!

Here is my 2 page spread for this fun hop:


Close ups:




I used acrylic paints with a baby wipe in the background.  The number 8 on the right is a metal embellishment by Tim Holtz and I used alcohol inks on it.  The images of kids is from a stencil I used which is of a girl (the left one) so in the right one I didn't include the ponytail to make it look like a boy.  The "8" in the balloons are Tim Holtz rub ons.  I also used a few Unity Stamps in the background.

Be sure to visit all the girls on this hop for loads of inspiration:

I am also giving away a prize pack to one lucky hopper!  So please go through the hop and check it all out.  I"ll announce on Monday!



Thanks for stopping by!  Till later!
