The Color Me Creative Design Team has a secret!!!  Today we are hopping along to wish our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean, a VERY Happy Birthday!!!  Suzanne is the owner/creator of the Color Me Creative site and, as many of you know, teaches her Copic classes online and on the road!  She is one busy lady and we thought we’d take time to wish her a happy day and hope she gets to sit with her Cherry Coke and donuts ( a fav combination of hers!) and relax a bit today and enjoy the hop!

Our theme for the hop is Aqua/Teal, Suzanne had mentioned her desire to "look like a mermaid"… LOL… so heck, we’ll play along.  (Old age is old age, peeps… just smile and say… "that’s nice, honey." LOL)

Aqua is never a hard one for me as this is my favourite colour to use. I’ve gone with a Princess theme and chosen the very sweet “Dancing Tilda’ from Magnolia’s Fairytale Collection and created this pretty card:

Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20 hair: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50 clothes: BG13, BG11, BG10, BG0000 shoes: E53, E51, BG10 I have added lots of sparkle with my Kindy Glitz for the occasion

Thanks for sharing Suzanne’s day with us!!  We KNOW you all love her as much as we do and we couldn’t be happier to be working with such an awesome lady!!
