greetings from seattle...& a birthday cake!

Happy Friday!!!!

I'm playing with CPS finally:

I'm combining it with Jenny's challenge over at Wee Memories:

This is my end result...I'm on a Whimsy Haven roll:)

Check out sweet Alex...isn't she a-dorable? She's multi-talented and holding the umbrella from the Rainy Day set behind her back :) I tried to keep the predominant color yellow but LOVE that K and Co Chevron print paper that teams up yellow, orange and fuchsia.

I hope you can play over at Wee Memories!! Whimsy Haven is the sponsor!!!

THE PRIZE: A $20 gift certificate to Whimsy Haven AND 30% off your next purchase!! Hurry though, the challenge closes April 16 at 11:59 pm.

Next up is a fun little birthday card..I haven't had a chance to play over at the Cards Blog...love Paige's challenges:) This week is Birthday Cards featuring Candles...

I'm a sucker for a good clearance sale:) I found that birthday cake embellie after Christmas for 50% off..the banner is from Practicing Creativity...love the Look up set!

♥♥RAK Alert!♥♥

Gotta love RAKs....especially when they come from the other side of the pond:)

Lookie what I received from the very fabbie Aimes...

She's great...she has a way of motivating me to break out my PTI...LOL...and check out these stinkin' a-dorable stickers....

Oh there will be some serious hoarding going on with these puppies...thanks sista!!!! You know how to make a girl happy!!!!!!
