Princess Birthday hop

Today is a special day for the Flourishes Family to celebrate our Birthday Girl - Julie Koerber!  And Julie is definitely worth celebrating!  She’s the right hand on so many levels of what’s beautiful about Flourishes, and we’re so grateful for her and blessed to also call this lovely lady friend.  

This summer a number of the Flourishes Senior Design Team girls gathered for a weekend in Yellowstone National Park.  It was a fantastic time of fun!  One of the great things some of the girls did was go Whitewater Rafting.  Because there were family members along, Julie graciously said she’d sit in the middle of the raft so the kids could get the most out of the experience.  The raft guide however thought that would be a fun opportunity to tease Julie about her “Princess" status.  She gracefully took it and we love to tease her about it - and so the idea for this Princess Birthday Hop was born!  Julie we love you and your fun, spunky spirit, and also the warmth and grace you live your life with!  Happy Birthday from all of us at Flourishes!  

 ~ ~ ~Julie you are such a sweet and dear friend. I love you dearly girlie! I know God brought us together for a reason and I am so very thankful for our friendship. Biggest hugs sweet friend! Happy Birthday! ~ ~ ~

I used Make A Wish for my creation and used the Spellbinders Opulant Ovals as it looks like the raft shape we were on. hee hee  Kidding..... I stamped the crown for Miss Julie onto classic white card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink. A few highlights with Copic B00 and RV00 to the crown. Some prima's my friend Pat made me and some flourishes jewels for bling. Voila!

We invite you to hop along today with many of our Flourishes Family to see our pretty Princess and Birthday inspiration, and join in on our wishes for Julie!
Comment along the way and you could be entered to win any Birthday set of your choice from the Flourishes Store!  Winners will be chosen and announced on Saturday November 23rd on the Flourishes Blog.

And don’t forgot to drop by Julie’s place to send her your Happy Birthday wishes too!
