Taylored Expressions 2nd Birthday Bash!!

Wow! I can't believe that Taylored Expressions is celebrating their 2nd birthday today! It seems like yesterday that I got an email from Taylor asking me to be on her Baker's Dozen design team. I was so honored! Unfortunately, I had to eventually step down in order to focus more on my family but I still hold Taylored Expressions very close to my heart! I am so thrilled to see how much success has come to this amazing company in such a short time. So, you can imagine how happy I was when Taylor asked me to be part of Taylored Expressions 2nd Birthday Bash Blog Hop. So, if you can over from the super amazing Amy Sheffer's blog then your at the right place! When I got my stamps in the mail I couldn't wait to get inky with it. This A La Carte set is called Belated Birthday-Fashionably Late. (All new sets are now available online at Taylored Expressions) So, isn't this hippo the cutest? When I saw the dress I just knew I had to paper piece it with something very fashionable. LOL I also had to add some bling to her hat feather and necklace. I used Taylored Expression glitter in Starfire on both. I love that stuff!!! It's soooo sparkly! To complete my card I added an inside panel with the rest of the sentiment. It cracks me up every time I read it. A few other things to add before you leave and move on to the next stop are the specials going on right now in the TE store. They are....

-Purchase ANY 4 full-size stamps and receive a free binder box.

-Purchase ANY 8 A la Cart stamps and receive a free set of Stamp Storage Panels.
-4 orders will be selected at random (one each day from Friday-Monday) to win a $25 TE girt certificate.

Now, I will direct you to your next stop which is the super talented Beate Johns! I bet she has something FABULOUS in store for you. If you would like to start from the beginning of the hop head on over to Taylor's blog. Have fun blog hopping!
