The Greeting Farm's 2nd Birthday Bash Blog Hop


Today is the BIG ANYAversary and Birthday of The Greeting Farm!
To celebrate The Greeting Farm is hosting one heck of a crazy Blog Hop Bash
I swear this has got to be the biggest yet, I thought last years was big, well in comparison, THIS IS HUGE!

This is just So exciting.!!!
Be sure to check out the
TGF blog to find out all the details!
And to see a list of all participants !! We are not linking who you should go to next, since there are WAY TOOOOO MANY participants this year.  Sooo be sure to go back to TGF, for the next person you should visit.  Don't miss any, you are going to want to hop all the way through.  There are prizes to be won!

All the fun starts today 7:00 PM CST.
You will have until 11:59 PM CST tomorrow
(Monday August 2nd)
With the winners being announced on Tuesday the 3rd!

This gives us all plenty of time for hopping,
and even taking a Little break in between, right?  LOL
Have you seen the new releases?
I just love 'em, I want them ALL!!!!!
But anyway....  About my projects for today....
I took on something I have never tried before,
But because this past year with TGF has been
pretty special to me
I just had to make a little memory book, but I made this for Marie. So she will be getting this once I get the time to actually package this one And get it mailed out.

Did you know that I used a total of 64 DIFFERENT stamps in this book???  That's crazy, right?  LOL

"Remember When?"












I know that these images are hard to see
but mostly because the book is LONG!!!
You can click on the image to make it larger if you wish.


Without Marie,  stamping with all of these adorable images wouldn't be possible.  She deserves to be honored in this celebration today!


Thanks so Much, Marie, for ALL that you do!!

Because I couldn't even begin to touch on all things TGF in that book, I decided to add a "Birthday Calendar" to my project for today, So I created a Blank Birthday Calendar for Marie, It can be used year after year, so she won't forget anyones Birthdays or anniversaries etc.

What's different about this Birthday Calendar is that EVERYTHING in it Was created digitally.  I tried to stick with only TGF Digi Scrapbook Kits,BUT, since there are only 2 of them, that made it difficult.
Even adjusting colors to make things look different was just not enough To be able to do a 12 month calendar. So I used some other Digi papers etc from other companies to complete this project.

Each page (each month) contains TGF Stamps, whether it be a Digi Stamp or a Rubber stamp.  All of which I colored electronically.

Once the Calendar was finished I then gave credit where credit was due on the back side of the calendar!
This is a full size 8.5 x 11 inch calender.












Just a short note about the 2 images you see here on the back of the Calendar.  Remember last fall when we got to design our own Wild Sprout, and then just a little over a month ago we got to design our own Anya's?  Well these are the ones I designed, so of course I had to add even those to the mix somewhere!  ha ha

Thanks so much, for sticking with me through this very long post, I hope that you've enjoyed my crazy creations for todays celebration.

Now HOP HOP HOP back to the TGF blog, and see where you need to go next!  =)
