The Sweet Stop Turns Three! 8-) - SSS153

Hi all! And a Very Happy Saturday to you! Today I'm back with some Fun News! The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge turns 3 this month! Whoo Hoo! 8-)  And to Celebrate, we are having Fun Blast from the Past Challenges all month long, where you get to pick your own Sweet Stop Sketch! You can use any of the sketches from our DT creations or any other Sweet Stop Sketches from the previous 3 years that you'd like!  And to make it even more fun, we will have Prizes every week! How Cool is that! 8-) So come help us Celebrate and join in the fun! 8-)
I printed out my Sweet SNSS Egg-cited Cocoa image onto Flourishes Classic White and colored him up with my trusty Copics. I cut him out and scored the edges with the help of my Score Pal for a nice clean look and popped him up with a bit of foam tape. For my mats and BG layers, I chose a combination of pink and yellow CS's form my stash and Dp's from Echo parks Darling Springtime collection. My Pink by Design Sentiment was stamped onto a fun layered Dia-namic mini tab die cut with Memento Tuxedo Black. And to finish it all up, I added liquid pearl accents to Cocoa's Easter Egg, a Fun MS punched border, some ribbon from my stash and a Sweet felt Daisy created with MFT's Upsy-Daisy Die-namics topped off with a Cute little button and some Yummy Baker's twine from MAD Stamper finds...8-)  

Here's the Terrific Blast From the Past Sketch I chose:
I hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop! Can't wait to see which sketches you will choose to kick off our Fun Birthday Celebration! And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Wonderful creations the rest of the Super Talented Sugar Babies have cooked up for your inspiration.
