Taylor's One Year Cupcake Anniversary Challenge!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

Wow! Two posts in one day already - and its not even 10am! This morning I am so excited to share some awesome fun that is happening over at Taylored Expresssions.

Taylor is celebrating the one year anniversary of the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge! Each of the ladies on the Weekly Cupcake Crew has designed their own sketch for the celebration. Taylor asked all of those who she has picked as a Featured Cupcake Sampler through the year to participate and feature one of the Cupcake Crew's sketch! I was so excited and honored to be part of this awesome TE Cupcake crew for today. I'm featuring Vicki Chrisman's sketch challenge. You can check out the sketch on her blog and find out about the prize you can win by participating! Here is my take on her sketch using one of my fave cuppies:


I couldn't decide which cupcake to use for Vicki's awesome sketch! But I decided to go with one of my all time favorite ones: the Vampire Cuppie from the Halloween SASI set. He is just sooo darn cute! The sentiment reads: "Vil you be mine." The Be Mine sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and the first part I printed out from my computer. The DP is basic grey, the cardstock is from the Paper Company - and a little bling here, some glitter there and some paper piecings later - voila - Valentine Vampire made his appearance :) (maybe I should call him Edward after the whole Twillight series :) He was so much fun to create and I loved playing with Vicki's sketch. Also check out Dawn Easton of Treasure Oiler Designz and Laurie Schmidlin of Just Give Me Stamps - to see their awesome takes on Vicki's sketch challenge for Taylor's anniversary celebration!

Don't forget to check out Taylor's blog, the anniversary celebration headquarters, for all of the sketch challenges as well as an awesome grand prize for one random winner who participates in ALL 9 sketch challenges! We hope you'll help us celebrate this yummy occasion!

May your day be filled with Cupcakes and Happiness!!,
Ciao for now,
Sankari
