{TCP150} Birthday Bear

Whew! I've been super busy with my new TCP release sets, but I really wanted to get this challenge done (and it was a challenge for me- triangles are scary! lol)...I love Leigh's sketches!

I went vertical with this one.....I used my TCP 'A Beary Good Year' (def a great set to own- covers every occasion and it's fun to dress up PJ in the perfect seasonal attire;), Pennant Cutup die, some MME Fine and Dandy 'Tickled Pink' paper and enamel brad, pink bakers twine, SU ribbon, button, Crystal Effects and dazzling diamonds glitter, as well as Copic markers. I also used MFT's simple scallop die to cut strips of dp to layer on the banner die (a bit sad, seeing that most of the scallop patterns are hidden under PJ's panel.....that's why I chose not to use a vertical strip of ribbon- too much of my hard work was already covered up! I like the way the little loopy bow thingy turned out- I wanted it to look like a fancy bow on a prezzie:)

And here is the inside, keeping with the same scallop strip, bakers twine and stitching theme. I stamped a plain PJ in creamy caramel ink and left lots of space for a sweet note for someone special!
K- I gotta go...I have tons to do before my first Hospital Day with the students tomorrow! Getting patient assignments figured out for 16 student nurses should take me awhile! Wish me luck- it's going to be a CRAZY 5 weeks!!

The triangles scared me too! I don't have that die, so I had to cut them out by hand, **VERY** scary! ;) I love the layers of scallops on the triangles and all the glitz on PJ, too cute! :)
