What a perfect day to celebrate!! Taylored Expressions is turning ONE!! 

I am just so excited this weekend!! Did you guys see the party going on over at the SASI blog??  A whole day full of challenges to celebrate Taylored Expressions' birthday party!! Of course, Taylor kicked off the festivities with a HUGE release!! OMG!! you guys have to see what's fresh out of the oven this month!! I just cannot stand it - everything is just too stinkin' cute!

I am determined to play along with as many challenges as possible this weekend!! Of course I have a million things to do, but somehow I managed to get the first one done!! (not too shabby after like 8 hours!!)Smiley from millan.net 

Okay so I had SOO much fun with this one!! Here is what I came up with for challenge #1: TEBBTV

I used my June Key Ingredients kit to make this shaped card.  I love the bold, bright colors and it definitely fits the birthday theme!!

The circle accents are punched out from the patterned paper included in the kit.  I sponged some pink and blue onto my frosting to "candy" it up and added some diamond stickles to the edges for some extra sparkle!!

This little monkey is just adorable?? I used my Copics to color him but when I was doing the shading I made sure to give him a little bit of texture by using a lot of layering with the markers so that he would look a little "fuzzy".. isn't he a cutie??

This was definitely a bright and happy challenge - perfect for kicking off a party!  Thanks for the inspiration Taylor!!
