CRAFT challenge blog hop

Hi all,

We arrived safely in England yesterday, but I will say more about our trip in my next post, as this one is already quite long. This is my third week of my GDT spot for CRAFT challenge, and this week we have something a bit special for you.

This week at CRAFT Challenge we are celebrating our 2nd Blogaversary in style. Our challenge this week is Happy Birthday! (to Us) to fit in with this celebration. Please link your project to InLinkz as per usual.
To celebrate we will also will be doing a Blogaversary Blog Hop with many sponsors and prizes on the way. To be in with having a chance of winning these prizes, you will need to leave a comment on our (G)DT's blogs, a winner will be chosen randomly at each stop.
We will also leave a word at each stop, with which we would like you to form a sentence. So, don't forget to collect a word on each stop as well! After you have collected all these words, form a sentence with them and enter your sentence in a comment on our CRAFT Challenge blog. We will obviously not allow comments to be posted during this week to stop any cheating, lol!
You should have started at CRAFT Challenge and come from Kim' blog. If you did not, please go back to the stops before you have so far not passed.
My word is: have

My sponsor for the blog hop is Lauretta's Digital Stamps, and the prize you can win on my stop is a choice of 4 images from her shop. My card uses one of her images, called Hippo birthday and I love it. I made an easel as I haven't made one for a while. The DP is quite glittery and so I
thought it would be perfect for a special celebration.

Just as a reminder, here is your route to follow. You should start and end at the CRAFT Challenge blog.
