My project details:  My framed piece opens up to include a place for photos -- to share exactly who the life of the party was:):)
In addition to using this cool RRD stamp, Life of the Party ~~ I just love this stamp by the way ~~ my background paper is from the Uptown Girl collection which you can also find in the shop.  I black embossed the stamp over this polka dotted paper, which I think sort of added the look of balloons falling to the floor.
The bling is from my own personal collection -- now doesn't that sound fancy?  What it really means is I grabbed it from a junk drawer overflowing with all manner of crafting odds and ends!

Well, have fun at the hop.  And make sure and check in frequently at RRD to see what Pam is adding to the store.  I see some amazing stamps coming up on the horizon....I think you'll like them as well.
