Scavenger Hunt Birthday Hop

 It is PARTY time at Lasting Memories today! We're celebrating Karen's special day with a "Scavenger Hunt Birthday Hop"  It's her 40th birthday tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than to have a hop in blogland. Before we get started, you better get yourself a pen and paper because you're going to need it. There are 10 blogs in the hop and each person has chosen an element to use on her layout. Your job is to find all 10 elements, write them down and choose FIVE to include in your layout. Be sure to keep your eyes open because we have sponsors as well as DT members giving goodies away. You may have to do a little something more for the DT candy, so be sure to read every post. Sound like fun?? We think so! Ok, lets get to it! You should have arrived here from Elizabeth
and if you're just coming by, start at Lasting Memories because you don't want to miss a thing! You'll also find the master hop list there too. For my layout today, I chose Bling for my element.
I used a lot of my go to Bling from Heidi Grace  rhinestone stickers.
I love that I can cut apart the flourishes to get just the look I want. 
The rest of the shinnies are random brands of rhinestone bling. 

As you can see the flourish can be manipulated to fit into the paper flourish cut on my cricut.

couple more piece I cut off the main cluster of rhinestone flourish. 
 I got all the cut little swirls from one package of Heidi Grace.

The flower/ snow flakes are the negative cut from my border punch jazzed up with more single rhinestones. The Giant snowflake is a doodle tracing of a cricut cut that I also used as a mask on another layout.
If you like what I've done and want a chance to win some of the Heidi grace rhinestones and other assorted bling, leave a comment with a link to your layout entry and use some bling

 I'm also showing off one of our sponsors as well. I am promoting Template-Dreams
who is giving away a digital template prize to one lucky winner.
 All you have to do is complete the hop, enter your layout using FIVE elements you've found a long the way and be sure to comment that you've done everything!

Thanks so much for joining us. You're next stop is
Happy Birthday Karen and happy hopping to you
