Happy Birthday Zoie

My niece turned 10 last weekend and to celebrate we met my parents in Gatlinburg and they brought along my niece and nephew. We had a great time, but I am exhausted. This was the card that I made for Zoie. Since she has an unusual spelling for her name, she can never find anything that is personalized so I stamped background paper using her name and added some pink cardstock from DCWV. The letters spelling out her name are from CTMH Solo letter sets. I just randomly stamped her name using CTMH Bubblegum ink. The darling pigs and the Happy Birthday are from the CTMH set, Nursery Bash. I think they are just too cute. I colored the image with Koh-I-Nor pencils and used OMS to blend and shade. The cupcakes, I colored and then topped with Doddlebug glitter in pink, purple and green. The bling are rhinestones that I picked up at Target in the dollar area. When she opened it so said she loved the diamonds on there!
We had so much fun on our weekend away, but the most fun was of course going to Your Scrapbook Superstore. It is so overwhelming to go in there, if I had the money, I think I could have easily spent a thousand dollars. I don't even know where to begin! They carry so many things that I can normally only see online, and it is all right there to see and touch. It also begs to be taken home with me! I was good though. I bought a punch and a couple of small See D stamps sets, plus a few other odds and ends. I didn't find that much in the Clearance Store this time but I did manage to find a few things there too. Thanks for stopping by!
