TPE 4th Birthday Blog Hop

I have posted this earlier than the other girls, because I am having surgery today and 
would hate for it to not post if I scheduled it!
The entire Hop will start at 10AM est!


WOW! It's hard to believe it has been 4 years since the start of TPE, since 
Robin Willis & I decided to start our own challenge blog.
It sure has been a super fun 4 years and each of you have helped make 
The Pink Elephant the success it is!
We wanted to celebrate and thank you all for a great 4 years!!
I hope you enjoyed the hop, loved all the fabulous 
PiNK-spirtion and the woo hoo sponsors & prizes!

Here are a few of my PiNK creations:



You can order your own Ella the Elephant Rubber Stamp HERE 





Be sure to leave a comment of each blog in the hop for a chance to win one of the 
prizes or lovely sponsors have donated!

Your next stop is to my awesome friend, Sheri Gilson's blog.

Here is the hop order...just in case you get lost along the way:


Thank you all for hopping!!

Have a blessed day!!

A few of the most appealing things about Ella are her polka dot ears and the bows. So cute. I love the pink/black/white combo. Very nice card. Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Ella, happy birthday to you.
