TGF August Release Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome back!
Today’s release is definitely a milestone for The Greeting Farm as it marks our FIFTH birthday!  Happy birthday to us!   
As you’ve seen from this month’s previews, we are going all-out to celebrate with three BIRTHDAY-themed releases and they’re all available NOW in the TGF STORE!   Whether you want to GO BIG with the new Frou Frou line, classic with Birthday Anya 3, or get ‘clearly’ creative with the new Birthday cake stackers, there’s a little something for everyone this release as we prepare to PARTY!
There will be a few birthday surprises on the Farm this month, so stay tuned, but in order to kick start today’s party and this month’s fab release, we’re celebrating with our DT BLOG hop as usual!
There’s a LOT to celebrate today, so because we are so excited, we have FIVE prizes for our FIVE years!
THREE random digis of choice will be given away for completing the hop today, as well as TWO grand prizes of the ENTIRE AUGUST RELEASE!    

Just be sure to head down this list, and then back to the TGF BLOG letting us know you’ve finished the hop. You have until 11:45pm CST to finish hopping and we’ll announce the winners during FFF tomorrow!  WOO HOO!

I chose to showcase Birthday Anya 3 for this release:

My goal was to not use traditional female birthday colors and to use something more neutral. I have a tendency to lean towards incorporating pink onto my cards and I’m just so happy that I found these papers and was able to use them with Birthday Anya. 

The inspiration for my layout came from the current Sketch Saturday seen below:
Thank you so much for celebrating TGF’s big day with us!  As always, it’s because of you that TGF is turning 5 with style and success.   Here’s to the next 5!  Thank you, all!
