Guess who's turning '1' this month? 

You got it S2G is turning "1"...and all they want to do is get Silly, Blow horns, Eat cake,

Throw some confetti, Give away stuff, and sing!  Wanna come along?   It starts Feb.11th! 

(Pssst!   You know what else...they’ve updated their website just in time for the BIRTHDAY 

BASH so once you’re done hopping,  head on over to the site and check it out!)   Shirley's 2 Girls 

LET'S CELEBRATE!   Join the S2G Design Team for a 'SCRUMPTIOUS' Birthday Bash Blog Hop. 

We'll show you lots of “SWEET” new digital stamps...all with a birthday theme.  

LET'S TALK PRESENTS!    The 'GIRLS" are gonna be giving away a BUNCH of GOODIES...(stamps, some of the Birthday DIGIS,  ribbbons, embellishments, & birthday stuff)!

WHY?  Because it's their BIRTHDAY!   

We thought we'd STIR things up a bit!  ALL of the DT members have "a word hiding in their Blog Hop POSTS...the words will describe 'things' or 'ingredients' that you need to make a  SUPER DELICIOUS Birthday Cake!    

Be the first to COLLECT ALL "14" words & YOU will be showered by S2G...with GOBS of GOODIES!  

This is your first stop on the hop. We don’t want you to miss anything so below is the list of blogs in case you get lost and need to come back here to start again. 

**Don’t forget to play along with us this week for our Twisted Thursday Challenge. There is not a sketch but the TWIST is to Tell us your favorite thing about birthdays and post your card to Mr Linky! 

We’ll select 2 winners via random.org and you will get your choice of a digital stamp from our website.


For my projects today, I decided to make things using the Birthday Party Favor Digis. I think this is one of the best examples of why digis are so great; they can be sized to whatever your project is and you can create an entire matching party set from invitations to treats to decorations all using the same images and coordinate all your party goods. One of my favorite things about a birthday party are the treats and activities. I remember going to parties as a child and getting that little goodie bag of treasures to take home with me. Now as an adult, I have a non-crafting friend that lets me make all the treats and treasures for her daughters' treat bags. I started with these fun mazes.

Remember these? I simply took small plastic mazes from the kid's party section, popped off the back and inserted the digi image of my choice that was sized and decorated and then reassembled them. You just have to be careful taking the back off or you will lose the little ball. These are a lot of fun and can be made with any image and make great little items to keep in your purse to keep little ones entertained when you are waiting somewhere. Here are mazes made with each of the images:
Still sticking with the Party Favor digis that I chose, I decided to make little treat holders too. I made the digis a little smaller this time. I wanted them a little smaller than the opening in my treat holder so that you can see the Sour Gummi Bears that are in each one. The bears also match my color theme I have going on here. I just attached my digi, filled the container, added a bow and there were my treats!
I thought I would show you one more project with my Party Favor digi. This time I blew up the circle a little larger and picked one to color and made a card with it.  I think these would make great invitations or thank you cards after the party.
Hopefully you came here from Jane's blog, if not you might want to start at the beginning. You don't want to miss a stop so you can collect all the words for your chance to win! So grab yourself a BOWL of Sour Gummi Bears to decorate your cake with and head on over to Ann's blog to see her fabulous project.
