Birthday Party Across the Miles!!

**If you're here looking for my Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Sample, it's right below this post!**

Welcome to the Fantasy Birthday Tour for my sweet friend Taylor VanBruggen. Happy Birthday Taylor!! Since we all couldn't be together to celebrate with you, we decided to have a Virtual Birthday Party Across the Miles - and guess what? Everyone's invited to join us to help celebrate Taylor's special day!! You should have arrived here from Jessica Diedrich's blog, but if you didn't you might want to head back to the beginning at Jami Sibley's Blog.

It wouldn't be a Fantasy Party without Fantasy gifts, now would it?? If money were no object, my gift to you Taylor would be a First-Class, Five-Star, all-expenses paid MAUI VACATION!!! :-) Because I mean, I know it's technically YOUR day and all - but I should get something out of this too, right!? And I know that deep down, all you REALLY want for your birthday is to come visit me!! ;-) Right? (Did I mention you'd be visiting me on MAUI, as in PARADISE??). The only catch is that we have to spend at least one day of your Fantasy Birthday Getaway stamping, OK? But the rest of the time we can spend here...


or here...

or here...

Totally up to you. And Here's a link to Maui's Official Travel Site so you can plan the rest of your trip. :-)

So I did make Taylor a birthday card, but I totally didn't get it in the mail in time for her to receive it by her birthday (sorry Taylor!). Here's a pic of the card I mailed her:


I used a few fun Taylored Expressions goodies. All that yummy paper is from the Lime Twist Life of the Party collection by My Mind's Eye. I paper-pieced the ice cream cone from Sprinkled With Love and added a little Happy Birthday sentiment from Labels of Love. I also used some Espresso Dimensional Pearls (that came in my Make a Wish Project Pantry Kit) to add the sprinkles on top of the ice cream! Oh, and that awesome sketch? That's the June Sketch For You To Try!

Well, that's it from me. Now head on over to Jackie Pedro's Blog and see what kind of fabulous Birthday Fantasy she's got in store for Taylor! And don't forget to stop by Taylor's Blog and wish her a Super Happy Birthday!!

And Taylor, I'll go ahead and set up our stamp table here...

Happy Birthday!!
