First Birthday Celebration!

Wow! Today is a special day, over at Shelly's Images! Not only is it Marvelous Monday, but this is a very special Marvelous Monday!

Today is the First Birthday of Shelly's Images! It is so hard to beleive that Shelly's Images is one year old, today! I remember months ago, when I first started playing in the challenges at Shelly's Images and won my first image from Shelly's Images! Such fond memories! And now, here I am, a proud member of Shelly's Images' DT!

Anyway, let me stop babbling and get on with the business at hand. I wanted to invite you all to hop on over to Images, today, to celebrate our First Birthday! We have some fun events planned throughout the day, so you you'll want to hop over more than once, today, to check out what is going on. There may be a freebie, involved, so you don't want to miss out! While you are there, check out all the fabulous birthday projects the DT have created using today's featured image, "First Birthday!" This yummy image is available, today only, at a discounted price in Shelly's Store! Make sure you get yourself a piece of this yummy cake while you're celebrating with us, today!

Okay, now that I have all the announcements out of the way, let me show you what I created for Shelly's Images' first Birthday! I actually created two projects, but I am going to post them in separate posts. The other comes with a fun tutorial, so you will see that one, tomorrow. (Are you excited, yet?!)

Here is today's First Birthday project:

How's that for a fun and unique project?! LOL! When I first seen this fabulous 1st Birthday image that Shelly created for the birthday celebration, I thought of this idea, instantly! A couple of years ago, my aunt and cousin had taken me out for my birthday, to dinner, and they gave me this crown and made me wear it all through dinner! Anyway, I have kept this crown, ever since! I just knew one day I would find the perfect Birthday girl to pass my crown on to! Oh, and guess what?! I found the perfect lucky girl to pass my crown on it---You guessed it! Shelly! Of course, I had to add something to make the crown special for Shelly, since its Shelly's Images' first birthday!

I used today's Featured Image, 1st Birthday, and colored it with Promarkers, then punched it out using a circle punch by EK Success. We had to have some more pink to make this extra girly, so I matted the image with a pink Scalloped circle, punched with a scalloped circle punch. Then I attached the image to the crown, using heavy duty glue dots! The image has added glitter and sparkle on the icing and candle, using these yummy new crystal Stickles. (Gotta have that extra sparkle). Oh, and you have to love this wonderful pink furry trim!

For tomorrow's project, I made Shelly a fun accessory to go along with her birthday crown! Be sure to check back, tomorrow, so you can see what it is, and see how I made it!

I think I should put this awesome girly birthday crown (and tomorrow's matching accessory), in a box and send it to Shelly?! Shelly is a teacher, so I think she needs to wear this Birthday crown and the matching accessories to school one day, all day, in celebration of Shelly's Images' first Birthday!

What do you all think?! How many of you think I need to send this cute crown to Shelly, and she should have to wear it all day to school? (Oh, and she'd need to take a pic of herself wearing this, and the accessory, so we can all see she has officially worn the crown!)

If I get at least 20 people to post a comment and say they think I should mail it to her and she should wear it, I will box it up and send it off! I know you'll all agree with me and not let me down, by posting your comment! I think Shelly better be prepared to show the world her new crown!

Maybe she will even pass it on to a birthday girl of her choice, and we can keep the tradition of the crown going!
