The Paper Shelters 4th Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog Hop and this is in celebration of their reaching their 4th Birthday on December 8th. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a  "A Special Celebration" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.
For my image I have used this sweet Dragon image titled "Dragons Birthday" and you will find him here, and I printed him several times onto semi-gloss photo paper then cut the first one out with a oval Nestabilitie Die and then can a fancy one for the mount. I then cut the other printed images into layers to create a decoupaged image and stuck them up into layers to make him 3D. 
I then used the "Birthday Cupcake" papers and you will find them here, I used three of the papers and layered them up as shown the second one was cut in a strip and I used a Martha Stewart border punch. I used My Craft Studio to create the sentiment badge and placed it in the top right hand corner, the No.4 was from my stash and was coloured with a inkpad and to finish of I have used cupcake buttons down the right hand side.
From here you will need to hop on over to Angela. Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digi's available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far.
