A Year of Cupcake Friday's!


Taylor is celebrating the one year anniversary of the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge! She asked each of the ladies on the Weekly Cupcake Crew to design a sketch for the celebration. This is the sketch I designed and I hope you'll all play along with the challenge! I will be selecting one random winner from among all the participantsin my challenge to win a $10 gift certificate from Taylored Expressions!

All you have to do is make a creation using this sketch (a card or scrapbooking layout) and post your creation to Splitcoast using keyword (TECC52SS). The deadline to be eligible for the prize drawing is Thursday, January 29th. I'll do the drawing on Thursday evening and announce the winner on Friday, January 30th.

I am so lucky to have three very talented ladies sampling my sketch to get your mojo going...so check out their blogs today!

Don't forget to check out the cupcake sampler this week...Congrats to Christine! You can check out her beautiful creations HERE!

We hope you'll join us in celebrating this yummy occasion!
Here is my card with my sketch! I paired up the adorable bunny from Kim Hughes' "Sweet Spring" set with the yummy cupcake in the "Baked with Love" set. Colored up with my copics to match the Cosmo Cricket patterned paper.


My sewing machine certainly got a workout on this card! Even SLOWLY stitching the zig zag around my focal image....had to make it EXTRA special for today's occasion! I am so excited to see what you all come up with for my sketch...how fun!

I'm off to CHA, but bringing my computer with me! Gotta check up on everyone and will hopefully be able to post about the fun in Anaheim! Have an awesome weekend!

Shelley G in Iowa said...

I really didn't do your sketch justice! That second circle threw me for a loop. I should have paid more attention to your example. I took it too literal! Sorry!
