Happy Birthday!

Man, there are a lot of birthdays coming up!  It seems like everyone I talk to has a birthday or a family member/friend with a birthday in the next few weeks.  That makes this week's Happileigh Scrappin' challenge just perfect.  This week was Happi Sister Chris's turn to pick the challenge, and she wants to see birthday projects, in honor of her son's upcoming birthday.


I used the adorable Sea Turtle, which you can find here.  I copied and pasted him twice, and changed the angles on all three turtles for some variety, and colored them with Copics.  The sentiment is my own, printed out using Word.  All papers were edged with light blue chalk ink.  The colored bubbles and seaweed are stickers I found at Target.

Now it's time to head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin Challenge Blog to see the projects from the rest of the Happi Sisters.  Remember, you do not need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to enter....but we'd love it if you did!  =D  If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images, you can visit the shop here.  As always, it's buy three get one free!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and we'll be seeing you soon!
