Happy Birthday

Happy Monday, too!!
Today after work I sat down at the craft table and this is what I came up with :
I used the current sketch over at the My Mind's Eye blog.
I turned the sketch on it's side.
I used a combination of Fine and Dandy & Stella and Rose patterned paper.
The challenge is to also use an "April Showers" theme.

Whenever I think of "April Showers" my mind always finishes that thought off with "Brings May Flowers". My birthday and my daughters birthday are in May - so I went with a birthday card.

There is also a wonderful childhood memories challenge going on over at Paper Sundaes. The challenge is sponsored by Mo Manning - one of my all time favorite artists - so I knew I had to play along.

I remeber having a blue party dress when I was a little girl. I always wanted to wear it but my mom always said that it was for Special Occassions only. I would wake up extra early on school days - quickly slip it on, in hopes that my mom wouldn't notice. She always did!! And I always ended up having to change. So funny that I remember that. What a great memory.

Anyways, enough reminiscing about old times...
I did take a snap shot of the copics used :

Snap shot of the sentiment - love rub-ons

and I added dimension to the balloons with diamond glaze :

Well, I should run and get dinner ready.
Have a great day!!
