Welcome to the 28 Candles Blog Hop

Kimi from Lovebug Creations IS HAVING A BIRTHDAY and she is TWENTY EIGHT! *sniff*sniff* They grow up so fast. 
She's hosting this fabulous hop to celebrate her special day. 
If you arrived here from Zeni's blog you are totally hopping in the right direction. If you just stopped by to see what I've been up to this is it and you can hop along too. Just head on over to Kimi's blog and start from the very beginning. 

I am very honored and excited to be among such talented ladies. Again, I feel starstruck and like I am among crafting royalty.  
For my project I wanted to do something a little different than a card and I came across this project that Brenda from Qbee's Quest posted some time ago and I just had to give it a try.  

 It's an Explosion Box Purse
Here it is open.

I stamped some flourish and stickled it to give it a little pizzaz. 

 Of course I had to include a decorated tea light. It's supposed to look like a little cake or cupcake. Can you tell?
Happy Birthday Kimi. 
I hope you will give this Explosion Purse a try. Brenda's directions are SUPER easy to follow and understand. 

Your next stop along the way is Anne's blog

Here's a list of the entire line up just in case  you get lost along the way.
