It's a Party! 2 year anniversary hop with 3 Girl JAM

It's Friday, it's almost the weekend, and it's time for the party to begin! 3 Girl JAM is 2 years old in September, and it's a month-long party.  Here's the hop order, in case you've stumbled across my blog.

I wrapped up a gift for you, my blog friends. I wanted to give you all a present:
I wrapped the box up with Sterling ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM Celebrations bundle. The box was cut out from a file I found in the Silhouette Store. You can find it here. The tag was stamped with a Unity stamp from the Happy Everything set, and tied with a little Trendy Twine.
Want to know what's inside the box?  Of course you do!
It's an exploding box with a three-tied paper cake inside.  And of course, it's decorated with a 3 Girl JAM ribbon flower on top. I used the same Sterling ribbon from the Celebrations bundle because this is a P-A-R-T-Y! There's also a vintage button from the 3 Girl JAM store on the very tippy top of that 3 layered cake. Looking yummy, isn't it? The papers are from DCWV -- The Black Currant stack.
And what's a party without prizes?  I have 2 to give away.  Julie, the owner of 3 Girl JAM has generously given a prize for each of us to give away on our blogs.  I have some adorable School Days flair buttons to give away to one lucky, randomly chosen winner.  Please leave a way to contact you in your comment. And, if you follow my blog and comment on this post, I also have some blog candy to give away.  I have a 6x6 paper pad, some ribbon (of course!), a stamp set, some bling,  some markers and some stickers looking for a good home. I will choose the winner early next week.
3 Girl JAM has some incredible sponsors for our month-long party. You will have opportunities to win all month! Here's a link to all the details on the 3 Girl JAM blog!
Now, off you go to the incredibly talented Cheri's blog.  Let the celebration continue!
