It's Ella's Birthday Blog Hop


Happy Birthday to Ella, the Pink Elephant!!!

I hope you all are having fun!!
This is so exciting and I am having a blast!!!

If you came here from Cindy's Blog then you are headed in the right direction. 
If not, then you might 'outta go to
The Pink Elephant Blog
where at this fun got started and see all the details!!
If you have been hopping along in the right order than you know by now that I have challenged
all the blog hop party guests to look back through the TPE Blog and pick out their
favorite challenge of 2009 and recreate it!!!
Well, I picked that same challenge Hannah picked...no we didn't plan it...she picked hers and got to work, while I picked mine and started coloring!!   I just love to color, but Hannah...she has a very bad Copic addiction!!!  Hee hee!!!  I am laughing but it is true!!!

So here is my favorite challenge:

Challenge #43
Color Me Wonderful
Use your Favorite Coloring Medium
(Markers, Watercolors, Colored Pencils, etc)


and here is the card I created for the hop today:

I had so much fun making this card!!!  First off, I used a Mo Image, You're my Best and who doesn't love a good Mo Image to color!!!  I also, sewed a little here, heat embossed a lil' there....added some distressing ink and actual distressing!!  I even took a stab at the crocheted lace embellishment I have been admiring!!!

 
 
Well, you better get ta hoppin'....Moshie's blog is your next stop.  She is the first of our Guest Bloggers and I am really excited to see all of what Ella's Friends have in store for us!!
Remember, if you get lost along the way just refer back to the TPE blog for the main list!!!

Don't forget to leave a comment for chances to win!!

Happy Hoppin' -
