Happy Birthday Blog Hop for By LORi Designs!

Good morning and happy Friday!!  I'm SO excited to be taking part in By LORi Designs Birthday Blog Hop!  Lori has fun prizes and all kinds of fabulousness, so be sure to stop by her shop for all the birthday giveaway details - the links are at the end of this post.  If you've stopped here by way of Anna Maria, then you are at the right place. 

For my card I'm using this sweet little Lollipop Lil' Chef.  DARLING!  My daughter is going to a sleep-over birthday party this weekend and I thought this would be a fun image to work with since she's in jammies and all.  I'm sure there won't be any 8-year-olds making breakfast Sunday morning, but I'm sure they'd love to make their own pancakes.

I colored the image with all sorts of Copics and used papers from the 6x6 Splash paper pack from Echo Park.  The layout is the fabulous Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch 7 and I kept it super simple and clean.

Be sure to stop by and see everyone on the hop and leave a comment to increase your chance to win!  Lori has all the info at the first stop:
