Courtney's Birthday Celebration!

Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Courtney turns 1 today!

Today is a very special day over at Libby's Little Addiction blog. Little Courtney-the star of FROM COURTNEY'S CLOSET CHALLENGE, turns one year old today and her Mama is celebrating in a big way!

Libby has asked some of her blogging friends to help ring in Courtney's special birthday by posting our challenge creations this morning.(of course I told her I would be happy to be on Courtney's Design Team LOL).

Libby will be offering up a chance to win some amazing blog candy to all who participate and create a project this week! Visit Libby's blog to see her creation and her blog candy....she tells us it's great stuff! Join in the fun...and let's party!

You can visit these other amazing bloggers to see their From Courtney's Closet Challenge(FCCC) creations!

and me!(can you believe who's on this list with little ole me?...woo hoo---some of these ladies have been on my list of original blogs I first started stalking over a year ago...and some I am just discovering and will now be stalking..LOL...they are all just wonderful!) Please visit and leave them a FCCC greeting!




My first try at a Bind It All book! Yikes...this was a lot of fun to make, especially for such a special little girl! I don't think I mangled the chip board or anything...so I am going to say my first one is a success, even though I have learned tricks I will do different on the next one!

The button covered cake actually pulls up out of the holder and says HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

This book is why I have enjoyed FCCC's challenge so much. This challenge has forced me to grow as a stamper by trying new things, and really using my BIG stash of stamps that were waiting to get inked!


Of course, the meeces are checking out the inside of this book!

Stamps: Misc individual House Mouse Stamps inside the book, Streamer stamp(?) , Stampin Up circle sentiment

Cardstock: SU! mint melody, rose romance, purely pomegranate, (all retired I think),very vanilla, and SU! DP inside as well as Heidi Grace DP

Ink: Memento Black and Purely Pomegranate

Misc: Rhonna Farrer Autumn Leaves French Twist Buttons, Mega flower punch, misc bling, Nestabilities inside, Martha border punch, Bind It All, SU! ribbon and May Arts ribbon, cuttlebug alphabet.

Book Size: 5 x 5

Pin It!
