The Story Within {Precocious Paper Birthday Bash Blog Hop}

Hello! Hello! Welcome to the Precocious Paper Birthday Bash Blog Hop! If you’ve been following along the hop and have just arrived from Rebecca's blog My Cluttered Corner then you’re heading in the right direction. If you’ve only just joined us, then you might want to start at the beginning by visiting Perfectly Precocious. Need an incentive? Then how about the chance to win your share of $100.00 worth of gorgeous hand-rolled roses, fantastic felt flowers or delicious paper embellishments? Hmmm. I thought that might get your attention!


So, what’s all this in aid of? Well, the super lovely Tessa Buys is turning 30 and she’s celebrating with a Birthday Bash Blog Hop, sponsored by her rather delectable Precocious Paper Etsy Shop. I’ve long been a fan of Tessa’s handmade embellishments and you’ll have seen them appearing in lots of my scrapbooking layouts and paper projects.So, when Tessa asked if I'd like to contribute to her birthday celebrations, I did a little "whoop, whoop."

A Story Within

A Story Within - Precocious Paper Rose

When I received these beautiful, fabric flowers I was so enthused by the gorgeous yellow colour that I really wanted to scrapbook something fun! It has a much brighter, lighthearted feel than my usual pages and I love it! Along with the fabric flowers, I've added a felt leaf, a wired leaf, some polka dot ribbon and a gorgeously dinky blue pin - which came in one of my samplers earlier this year. (Everything else is from my Counterfeit Kit.)
