Abby's Surprise Birthday Hop !!

Hi Everyone and Welcome to
Abby's Mexican Inspired Surprise BirthdayHop !!!

 
 
Abby is a good friend to the ladies in this hop and also a former Jaded Blossom designer
SO we thought what a better way than to make things that she LOVES !!!
 
Please read the entire post to find out how to enter our giveaway!
 
For my project I made her a notepad and matching pen set
(so she can write me all kinds of sappy letters) lol
 
 
I used a SVG file called "Mexico" from SVG Cutting Files
 For the little Mexican girl and made her dress the colors of the flag for Mexico
I also used spell binders for the ovals
and Abby's favorite patterned paper from Echo Park

 
I also made a beaded pen for her in matching paper

 
Curious on how to make the pen? I have a video here showing you how
 


 
So lets talk about the prize !!
