HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY TO BUGABOO Whoo Hoo! How awesome is that?!I hope you're ready for some fun because we are going to party!
I hope you're having a blast along the way! Hang in there, I know its a long one, but totally worth it! You should have arrived here from Angel's Blog. If you didn't, You don't want to miss out! You will want to start over at the Catch The Bug blog, here.
So, to celebrate Bugaboo’s 2nd Birthday, not only are we doing this fun blog hop, but we’ve got a great Birthday Themed challenge for you today!
Here is my card for today's fabulous Birthday Challenge:
I used the fun image, Skelekinz-Cupcake. I went crazy with distressing, with this project, too! I got a Diztrezz-It-All (by Zutter) from Santa, and just had to use it! Wow, I can't tell you how much easier distressing is, with this little baby! I also used a battery operated hand held battery operated distressing tool by Imaginesce, to distress the fine scallops on the scalloped circle. After distressing my papers, the edges were inked with distressing ink pads. The image is colored with Promarkers. The papers are all scraps from my scrap box. (Gotta love scraps!) The flowers are from my stash, and branches punched with the branch punch by Martha Stewart. The butterfly is also from my stash. Sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You. The image and sentiment are attached with foam mounting tape for dimension.
I hope you enjoyed my project, and will play along with us this week - You have the chance to win a digi prize pack- 7 free images for 1 winner(using a Bugaboo Imagee, 2 images for the second place winner, and 1 image for the third place winner!
