The Boss Lady (surprise) Birthday Blog Hop!!

If you arrived from Stephanne's Blog then you are in the right place - if you just happened upon my blog please start at Debbie's blog & hop along with us!

It's our fabulous bossy lady aka Kellie Winnell's Birthday! We are having the most fun surprise hop for her, and believe me when I say SURPRISE we have such a great surprise up our sleeves for this amazingly talented kind herated, generous boss/friend of ours.

The pink ladies, including international have joined forces with Lil Lolita Boutique for this fun birthday hop day! Here is how it all started:

The Gorgeous Debbie had an idea and approached Christine the designer of our gorgeous Lolitas, and on the sly asked if she would design a KELLITA!!! Then Debbie let Kristy in on the secret and asked if she would like to help, of course Princess said YES! So, together Debbie & Kristy sent pictures and ideas of what Kellita should look like....

My card is a different card than what I actually sent Kellie as I had camera issues today and my picture of the card that I sent to Kellie is no longer available. So, eek, I quickly had to put this NEW birthday card together. And that was after running to target to BUY a NEW camera! Double EEK.

I absolutely LOVE October Afternoon paper and I know Kellie does too, so I knew I had to use it for the card. You might notice a recurring theme in our Kellita's because they all have red hair just like our fearless leader! For MY red hair, I love it bright so I use R08, YR04, Y38. I think it's so rich and beautiful. Since I made this on the fly today I used the 2S4Y sketch b/c I seriously needed some help jump starting my mojo today!!

So, happy Birthday, dear Kellie! I am so honored to be on the LLB DT and have just had the best time since joining. Thank you so much for the opportunity & hope you have a fabulous birthday filled with lots of love, prezzies & surprises!!!

Now, of course, what is a hop without prizes?! 2 lucky commenters will get the chance to WIN this SPECIAL edition Kellita!!! All you have to do is comment on each card. The winners will be announced on Wednesday the 11th of August on the Tickled Pink Blog.
