Hello my sweet blog friends! Happy Friday! My sweet oldest daughter, Tessa, turns 10 in two weeks! Wow, double digits! Where has the years gone?! Faster then a blink of an eye! We are planning her birthday party with 5 giggling girls spending the night next week. She will have a blast! I am sure there will be giggling & talking all through the night!
The retired Sweet Pea DSP and First Edition DSP were used for my colors today. (TIP: Don’t have the retired DSP, just use your color printer and print some from the MDS!! It works great!) Happy Birthday sentiment comes from the Create a Cupcake stamp set. I then stitched around the edges with Crumb Cake string. Yes, I did bring my color coach to the store and matched my string to sew with! HAHA!!! I love Fabulous Phrases and it helped create my “sweet smile” sentiment too.
I painted my scallop circle (Mix & Match OnBoard retiring soon!) with Acrylic White paint and then distressed it with the SU! sanding block. I then used my Circle Scissor Plus to add my layers of Crumb Cake and Whisper White. I stamped my cupcake from Create a Cupcake stamp set, with VersaMark. I then used the new Embossing Colors, Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo. I cut out each image and added some glam to my cupcake.
