Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday to you!!! Well, summer has finally made its way to Michigan. We had a few days in the 80's. The pool is ready...crystal clear and heated to 88 degrees. Can you say "Ahhhh"?

So, my son's last day of school is on Wednesday. I still can't believe it! How did the year go by so fast? He's 7 years old and it seems like only yesterday he was a wobbly toddler! Just a few more inches and he'll be as tall as my shoulder. Oy!

We had very busy weekend. On Saturday, we had a 50th birthday celebration for one of my really good friends. Her actual birthday is tomorrow. On Sunday, we celebrated my Dad's 69th birthday! Oy again! How is it that he gets older and I don't??? His actual birthday is tomorrow too.

Anyway, on to the reason we're here...

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge
(aka "TOMIC")

Today is the grand opening of The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge (TOMIC) blog!!! Many of the Magnolia DT members are participating in this weekly challenge blog. It is sponsored by Magnolia and they are offering a secret prize for the winner. Each week, on Mondays, there will be a new challenge and we hope that you will all participate. All of the rules are listed in the left sidebar of TOMIC.

Our first challenge has a birthday theme. Here's my project...I hope you like it :-)

Happy Birthday

I decided to work with 2 Magnolia images: Tilda with Cake from the You Are So Special collection, and Kitchen. You can get them both at Magnolia-licious. I paired them with dp's from Lily Bee Design's 'This & That' collection, available now at Love To Stamp. Cs is from Bazzill.

All flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon is from my stash and I just knotted it this time instead of a bow. I like it for a change. The sentiment is new from Whimsy Stamps 'Party Mini Letter Seals' and is available at Love To Stamp.

I colored the images with Copics. The details are below:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50, Y18, 21, 38, W00, 1, 3, 5, 7, N0, 1, 3, YR30, R20, 30, 37, 39, B21, 23

That's it for today! I hope you'll play along with the TOMIC birthday challenge. I can't wait to see what you make! I also hope that you'll leave me a little comment so that I know you stopped by.

Thanks so much!
