Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop

Hello everyone!! Welcome to Operation Julie's Smile Blog Hop!  If you are following the hop, you should have come from my friend Emily Leiphart's blog!  And, if you get lost along the way you can always start at the beginning by visiting the  Sweet Stamp Shop Blog where you will also find all of the information on the blog hop as well.


Did I mention that this hop contains PRIZES!?  LOTS of them too!! There are over $2,500 worth of prizes that you are eligible to win!  One of the ways you can be eligible to win is by leaving a comment on my post!  Easy peasy!!

My team member Julie Ranae has had some major problems with her teeth recently that has caused severe pain and problems and she is in need of something to smile about.  Hopefully this blog hop will cheer her up and help her get her smile back along the way!

So with that theme in mind, I thought what better way to cheer someone up than silly, goofy, smiling acorns?!


I am on two design teams with Julie:  The Twinery and Lil' Inker Designs (LID).  I incorporated items from both teams into this fun card.  The acorn dies & their fun little smiley faces are from Lil' Inker Designs and of course that fun little frilly poof on the top of the party hat and the twine bow are from The Twinery's collection of wonderful, beautiful twine!


From this angle you can see the dimension on the acorns a little better.  I just LOVE giving these acorns fun and non-traditional "hats" (LOL!!).  I popped each of the acorn tops up and then popped up the party hat even more.  I couldn't resist making the top acorn with a HUGE SMILE in honor of Julie and the joy she must be feeling today as she goes through this blog hop in her honor!

Thank you for visiting today and for helping us celebrate!  Don't forget to comment on this post to be eligible to win some of the $2,500 worth of prizes available!!

The next stop on the hop is my creative Lil' Inker Designs teammate Alicia Thelin!
