Whale Celebrate...Tag You're It Challenge #27 Reminder Post, Cupcake Inspiration #321, Little Tangles #59~Birthday

Hello,

I'm happily settled at my mom's, where we spent the day jaunting hither and yon (we *may* have ventured to the local scrapbook gal's place). Our evening: jam-packed with niece and nephew time! Oh, how I love those kiddos!

Today, a quick reminder post that you still have one more week to join us at Tag You're It Challenge #27, where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from Anja's sweet partying turtle:


Making a debut - finally - one of my darling whales from Lawn Fawn, paired with a bubbles stencil from STAMPlorations and Paper Smooches sentiments.  The hearts (Lawn Fawn) are 'similar' to the colours in Anya's background tag....


Heading to the galleries at:
