Cupcake Anniversary Challenge

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. From each of our sketches, we are lucky enough to have some ultra talented girls sampling our sketches. I'm so thrilled to have ....








Sampling my sketch! THANKS GIRLS!


*******


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 participants in 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 TECC52VC . 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.
Don't forget to stop by Taylor's blog, the anniversary celebration headquarters, and check out the awesome grand prize for one random winner who participates in ALL 9 sketch challenges! You can find all 9 sketches on these blogs:
















The cupcake sampler this week is Christine Okken
We hope you'll join us in celebrating this yummy occasion!

*********************************************



Here's the card(s) I created with my sketch. I actually did one horizontal and one vertical.
The one below was done with Crafty Secrets new "Chandelier Fun" Stamp set.




I added some gem and glitter.





You can see how many different ways this chandelier can be used.






Here's one using an image from the Childhood Image and Journal Book.



While I was on a roll.. lol I decided to do Taylors Sketch also. Below is Taylors Sketch




And here is my card using her sketch.

Congrats Taylor... on an amazing year of sketches!
