Michele's 50th Birthday Hop


Hello.....


and welcome to the
  "Michele is turning 50 Blog Hop"


Such a nice round number, half way to a Century. :)

You should have arrived here from Mary's blog, 
but if you encounter broken links, you can always go to Cas-ual Friday's to see the entire hop list.

Michele is not only a great woman, she is also my Breast Cancer Sistah.
Not really something you want to have in common, but it is what it is.

So of course I wanted to make it personal by putting her name all over those 

H U G E 

numbers.




Wanting to add some flowers, I chose the beautiful florals from the Mon Ami set and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers.
A bit of Sparkle marker was added to give it a little something, something!



Border is from the Bold Wishes set.
Sentiment from the Frankly'isms set.

There are quite a few stops along the way, but make sure to comment on each because Michele is giving away 5 prizes and we don't know which blog she will select from.
Commenting ends at 11:59pm April 23rd.

Sheer genius to make patterned paper with her name for the HUGE 50... Ha! Gotta love it, even if you are hating the age ;-) Brilliant idea... will be stowing this away for my besties 50th in a couple years, though I have to be careful to be nice about it... my 50th is only 6 months later!
