Rhonda & Amy's Birthday Party Blog Hop!! The Last Hop Stop...

 Welcome to the Birthday Party Blog Hop for Rhonda and Amy!!

You made it to THE LAST STOP in the HOP!!  :)
 Time for the Party Games to BEGIN....

Once upon a time (okay, once upon two times nearly a decade apart), two girls were born... These girls were both visited by their fairy godmothers and granted very special talents... One was given the talent of creating the most beautiful mini scrapbook albums while the other was given the talent of creating some really amazing explosion boxes... Each of these girls would one day begin blogging, and this is how they would meet...

Somewhere over the rainbow, you'll find the lovely Rhonda... Where scrap happens and paper flies... And somewhere near the zoo, you'll find dear Amy... Where giraffes prance and frolic to her heart's content...

One day, these two lives collided and Rhonda and Amy have become forever friends!! Lovely Rhonda had this incredible idea for a new twist on a challenge blog, so she contacted dear Amy and asked her to take care of the "technical" side... For many months, they have enjoyed CELEBRATING the get-togethers and parties that make life fun by showcasing the DECORATIONS that others share... And THAT is how the Decorate to Celebrate! challenge blog began...

Today, it's time to CELEBRATE good times and good friends with this "BIRTHDAY PARTY" Blog Hop and Birthday Project Link-Up that will last all month long!! Rhonda, who is turning the big 5-0 this year deserves a month-long celebration, don't ya think??? And Amy, who will forever stay 29 (for the 12th time) has always been a BIG believer in the "Birth-month Celebration"... Soooooo... After the hop has ended, you'll be able to create a "Birthday Party" themed project and LINK IT UP right HERE at the Decorate To Celebrate! challenge blog!! Usually, your entry needs to be a decoration or party supply, but THIS MONTH (and this month only), you can link up ANY Birthday Party project (cards, layouts, 3D Art...). We'll be giving out some Birthday Presents all month long, but you'll need to enter to WIN!!

Rhonda and Amy have assembled a few of their creative friends to join them on this Birthday Party Adventure through Bloggie-Land... Along the way, you'll find some incredibly creative projects to celebrate Rhonda and Amy... If you came here from Amy (the December Birthday Girl), then you are in the right spot!! If you are just checking in here at DTC or are reading this via email, we'd love for you to join the PARTY so CLICK HERE to start at Rhonda's Blog so you don't miss any of the FUN!!

Now that you've finished up the hop, we have a FUN little game for you...  To be eligible to WIN our GRAND PRIZE for the hop, you needed to leave a comment on each post in the hop...  Now, let's see if you can match all the projects to WHO made them!!  All you have to do is leave a comment telling us who made each of the following projects (comment moderation will be enabled so everyone has a fair chance in the drawing)...  We'll draw one person who gets them all correct for a SURPRISE treat!! 
*** You will still be eligible for our BIRTHDAY MONTH GRAND PRIZE all month long; however, here are the participants who answered our Project Match-Up correctly:
Claire, Jackie, Becky, Linda, Melissa, Tami B, Judy, Lisa (who noticed that 2 of the pictures had accidentally been deleted in the very beginning -- THANK YOU!!)
Rather than pick just ONE of you -- Would ALL OF YOU please email me your address so that I can send you EACH a Birthday Card and Stamp!!  Thanks so much!!  Amy's email is scrapbookingwithamy (at) gmail (dot) com...
