I WON!!!!  My sweet friend Wendy phoned this weekend to tell me that I had WON the huge Birthday Blog candy prize from LaLa Land Crafts!  If that's not a reason for a happy dance I don't know what is!  Seriously, this is what Irina of La La Land is sending to me.
  •  Set of 12 Copic Markers in NEW 2011 colors
  •  Spica Glitter Pens (set B)
  •  Pack of X-Press It Blending Cardstock
  •  New Scor-pal
  •  Pack of ¼” Scor-Tape
  •  3 sets of 12x12 Basic Grey Collections paper packs
  •  $20 gift certificate to the La-La Land Crafts Store

 Check out Irina's blog and on line store.  She has fun challenges and lovely prizes and her stamps are adorable.   So being in a party mood, I decided to enter Mo Manning's current sketch challenge with this sweet image called Abby Celebrating .  Color Abby AND me happy!  This color combination is a bit of a stretch for me, but I think it worked out okay.

CS:  Bazzill, DP is a freebie digi kit from Digital Design Essentials called Smitten. Image is Mo Manning, colored with Prismacolor pencils using the gamsol technique.  Her skirt is partly paper pieced and I used my favorite Magnolia Doohickey flouirsh with a couple of Nesties  for the mat and the ticket shape.  Ribbon is from my stash with Prima flowers, a cute Pixie Dust brad  and an SRM sentiment sticker.
