Birthday? Did someone say birthday?

If you are looking for my Repeat Impressions post;
please scroll down!

Oh yeah baby; let's celebrate MY birfday again, want to? HA HA HA...I know MANY are relieved my birthday doesn't happen for another 357 days - LMBO!

Well, you're right, it's not MY birthday but it IS Amber Ink's 1-year birthday and we are celebrating with a HUGE blog hop! And since I'm an ORANGE torchbearer; the poem MUST be in orange...LOL!!

Twelve short months ago
we made our big debut,
So now we'd like to commemorate
our 1st birthday with you!

This flash mob of torchbearers
always light our way.
Won't you please jog along
on our special day?

Leave your comments here and there
over the next 48
On Friday we'll announce the loot
Don't wait...let's CELEBRATE!

So before you go, we'll take a little peek at my project - I wanted to go TOTALLY retro - like when hubby and I were looking at houses and we found one that had both ORANGE and LIME GREEN shag carpet - oh lordy help me!  So in remembrance of those fabby retro days and colors I present "Nobody Beats You"!

And look at all these fabby badges - DANG, does Amber rock or what???  Yeah, you can just hop from one to the next, easy peasy!



K, don't forget to leave comments as you hop along and thanks for joining in all the fun!

...Nobody Beats You...
Hugs, ~M.

Michele, we almost share birthdays? How cool is that. This can be your birthday blog hop too! I just want to touch this card, or squeeze it or something. There is something about the colors and textures that awaken my senses! Maybe it's the mere mention of shag carpet. Groovy.
