Birthday Bash Fun!!

Happy Friday to you everyone!  Today I'm celebrating the CMC Classroom's 3rd Birthday...whoot...I can't believe its been 3 years since I started that classroom!  I've hopefully been able to teach a lot of you how to master those Copics or other alcohol markers and maybe you've made some new friends at the site, joined the bookclub, took some other classes and dropped in for a live chat or two.  Lots of fun things over there and I'm so happy with the way its grown over the years! And its been so much fun to get to know so many of you as well....thank goodness for the internet I always say....great way to network and meet other friends that share your hobby love!   So I hope you will find time to drop in and join in on a fun challenge or game or two...lots of fabulous prizes from our sponsors for each challenge...MANY ways to win!  AND...everyone is welcome whether you've taken a class or not...so tell your friends too!


**Yesterday was my daughter's 17th Birthday....can't believe it myself...but I did a birthday post to her on my other blog HERE if you'd like to see it! :)  My babies are growing...ay yi yi! **



Today the CMC DT is kicking things off with a fun Blog Hop featuring those cute Saturated Canary images and all projects are a bit....well....CELEBRATORY!! LOL! 
So if you hop along to each of the DT Blogs AND leave a comment you will be entered to win ONE of (2) $20 Gift Certificates to any online crafty store of your choosing!  

And if you join in on at least ONE challenge each of the 4 days (4 total) you will be entered to win a $75 Gift Certificate to your crafty online store of choice!!  Whoot! 

How easy is that....so hope you will celebrate and hop along with us!

**************************************

Birthday Bash Fun!!



I'm the START OF THE BLOG HOP TODAY....see hop list at end of post ok...remember if you leave comments you will be entered for prizes..whoot!  Sooooo I chose to use this super cute Saturated Canary image called "Jules"...I love that she's holding a kitty since we have 6 of them.  This was Alexa's 17th Birthday card yesterday as well and yeah her cat Tinkerbell is black/white but shhhhh we will just pretend ok LOL.  So the colors match my blog, my studio and Alexa's bedroom...they are our fave colors!!  The papers are from Carta Bella's "So Noted" paper pad and then were distressed with my Zutter Distress machine.  I also inked them a bit with my Memento dew drop in tuxedo black.  The flower scrollies are a NEW Memory Box die "Geneva Vine" and the other scroll on the right side of the image and is called "Val Flourish".  Then I layered some flowers and added a few pearls to finish it all off.



She got colored with Copics:  BG49,BG45,BG11,BG10 / C9,C5,C3,C1,C0 / E11,E00,R11 / E35,YR23,E50,E31.  Then I added some Stickles around the image and to parts of her underskirt.  I lightly stamped a text stamp from PTI around the image for some extra flavor ;)  Diamond Glaze on her shoes and eyes.



That's it for me today...your next stop on the BLOG HOP is my pal
