3GJ 2 Year Anniversary Celebration Blog Hop

Good Morning and Welcome to an AWESOME celebration!!!
It's a party
3GJ is turning 2!!! 
I am so excited to be sharing in this HUGE celebration and even more honored because I have been with 3GJ since the beginning :) 
This HERE is my 1st project I did with 3GJ for the introduction Ribbon and Button's Blog Hop! Wow how far 3GJ has come with all the gorgeous colors of ribbon and LOTS of fun stuff being added to the store!
This month is going to be so fun celebrating and today also kicks off the new challenge...
but more info can be found on the challenge over at the 3GJ Challenge Blog

So you probably want to see my project by now...right??? 
I made this sweet birthday card and matching candy package using one of my FAVORITE colors of 3GJ crinkle ribbon~Christmas Candy from the Season's Bundle
Here it is....Hope you like it!!!
Making these candy treats are probably one of my favorite ideas...they are quick and easy to make, plus you can decorate them with whatever matching papers and themes you are celebrating!
See now this crinkle ribbon from 3GJ doesn't have to be used for Christmas only. It is a perfect match to my designer papers and tied in a bow looks awesome with the different colors!
Here is the candy....I stamped some cute sentiments on a few of the pieces to dress them up a bit more~ Wouldn't this make a sweet birthday gift???
