Scrappin Madge's Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to Scrappin Madge's Happy Birthday Blog Hop!  You should have just come from checking out Linsey's amazing project.  If not, please head on over to see the birthday girl Scrappin Madge to start this hop from the beginning.  And now, onto the fun stuff...............


I was lucky to meet Madge a couple of years ago at CHA.  She's one of the happiest, positive people I know, and I'm so happy to help her celebrate her birthday :D  And now, onto my project!!

*Disney Classics Cricut cartridge - Sully
*Wrap It Up Cricut cartridge - present, cupcake and sentiment
*The Royal Castle Shoppe - Action Wobble

*Isn't he the CUTEST??!!  Sully is Madge's favorite, 
so I HAD to use him to make her birthday card :D

*Since he's helping to celebrate a birthday, he needed to have a present!

*It was a little tricky making him into a shape card, but it worked out in the end!

But wait, could he get any cuter??!!  Check it out.............

*The birthday cupcake wobbles, eeeeeeek!

*I just trimmed down the wobble to just outside of the spring to make it fit.

Now head on over to see my crafty pal
as the next stop in the hop!
