Flourishes - A Princess Birthday Hop!

Today is a special day for the Flourishes Family to celebrate our Birthday Girl - Julie Koerber!  And Julie is definitely worth celebrating!  She's the right hand on so many levels of what's beautiful about Flourishes, and we're so grateful for her and blessed to also call this lovely lady our friend.  
This summer a number of the Flourishes Senior Design Team girls gathered for a weekend in Yellowstone National Park.  It was a fantastic time of fun!  One of the great things some of the girls did was go Whitewater Rafting.  Because there were family members along, Julie graciously said she'd sit in the middle of the raft so the kids could get the most out of the experience.  The raft guide however thought that would be a fun opportunity to tease Julie about her "Princess" status.  She gracefully took it and we love to tease her about it - and so the idea for this Princess Birthday Hop was born!  Julie we love you and your fun, spunky spirit, and also the warmth and grace you live your life with!  Happy Birthday from all of us at Flourishes!  

We invite you to hop along today with many of our Flourishes Family to see our pretty Princess and Birthday inspiration, and join in on our wishes for Julie!

Comment along the way and you could be entered to win any Birthday set of your choice from the Flourishes Store!  Winners will be chosen and announced on Saturday November 23rd on the Flourishes Blog.

And don't forgot to drop by Julie's place to send her your Happy Birthday wishes too!

Jenny Gropp - you are here!

Princess Julie! 
I wish you a wonderful birthday! I hope you treat yourself to something fun and extra special! It's been nothing but fun knowing you for so many years! I tried to make you a girly card.... not really my specialty!
 I used Spellbinder's Labels 8 and Decorative Labels 8 to frame the image from the Feminine Charm Flourishes set. I picked bright and happy colors because you always are both!!! 
 Had to add in this sentiment... because this is how so many of Julie's emails start! 

I added a little floppy white ribbon bow along the side to embellish. All the bright paper I used is from the new Bo Bunny Collection called Pin Cushion.

Here's the hop order again:
