Angela's "Fabulous 50" Birthday Blog Hop

If you are here for Angie's Paper Passion's 50th Birthday Blog Hop and you have just come from visiting TinaGale at, then you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to  and start at the beginning.

Happy Birthday Angie

I could not wait to do this LO when I heard the Angie wanted to do a Fabulous 50 Birthday Blog Hop.

I saw this a while back and can not remember who or where
But I though this would be the perfect time to try this project out.

I hope you enjoy it.

This is a simple Recipe

Pattern Paper - K&Company Desingner Paper
Flesh Tone Color Paper - Recollecions (Michaels)
"@" and "50" - Black
Pearls - White


Forever Young Cartridge:
Women & Accessories - Cut @ 10"
Mirrow - Cut @ 10"
Fabulous - Cut @ 2.5"

Lyrical Letters Cartridge:
"@" and "50" - Cut @ 2.5"

Isn't she just too darling

I really like the affect of using close to flesh toned paper
for the silhouette instead of black

I used my Gypsy but it is not needed.

But I did save it on my Gypsy,
Because I will be making this again and again.

Printed the picture at 7" x 5"

I cut out another Mirror Frame with the Cricut

And then cut out the Looking Glass part

Then glued the Mirror Frame over the picture

After the glue dried,
I cut the excess picture from the outside of the Mirror Frame
and then glued in place

Added a little "Diamond" Stickles Glitter

For a little Bling

And "Frosted Lace" Stickles for the Pearl Neckless

Happy Birthday again Angie

Thanks for looking
