Melts in Your Mouth but Not in Your Hands Blog Hop....

Happy Birthday Kimberly and Rachelle. 
It is also my 35th birthday today. 

Welcome to Melts in Your Mouth but Not in Your Hands Blog Hop for not one but two beautiful ladies who are beautiful inside and out but have the love and joy of crafting. We are celebrating their birthday with a wonderful candy that is not only beautiful inside but outside and both sides are delicious!!!! What a better treat than to use M&M's for birthday wishes!!!! And, they are both turning 50, but shhhh don't spread the rumor as who would ever believe you after looking at their picture!

We have a super wonderful group of crafters to help wish not only Kimberly Pate but Rachelle Larsen a super very happy Birthday. Our hop begins with Kimberly Pate  in case you just happened to stop at my blog to visit me. Don't get me wrong, but since there is such a delicious hop, I wouldn't want you to miss a single stop along the way!!!!! If you have arrived from Edwina then you are following the empty bags of M&M's.No one likes empty bags.

 My 2 favorite kinds of M&M's are the Coconut one and the Mint ones. YUMMMMMMO. I like the peanut ones too. I decided to make a Lo featuring me and my favorite M&M's. I used the actual wrappers in my project too. 
I started with plain white card stock. Added the green with white dots to half of my page. Used some slime green Ric Rac to cover my separation line. Backed my wrappers with some scrap green paper. The quote I got from the M&M's site. It is what the green girl says. My photo I printed with the designs on it. I told the printer I wanted  green outline but I guess he was thinking I was using to much green because he spit it out with blue. But it's okay because it off sets it some. I just love this LO.
 I have included the complete line-up just in case you would happen to get lost along the way or at too many M&M's.
