 Yipeeeee and Yeahooooooo!  I'm SO excited to be blingin' up some FABULOUS with
my darling buddies of Want2Scrap®, and a VERY special celebration, for the undisputed
QUEEN of bling...  That's right - Michelle Parrish, the owner, purveyor and EXPERT 
bling designer, extraordinaire! She is having a VERY sparkly birthday today, and IIIIIIII am
so happy to be wishing her THE HAPPIEST of DAYS, right here, right NOW!

Happy BIRTHDAY, beeeeeautiful lady!  I'm SO proud to have been inspired,
 befriended and bejeweled by incredible you...  
THANK YOU, soooo much, for including me in the, ever SO
sparkly fun of Want2Scrap®, for MANY years {!} ...  It's lovely to call you my


I ADORE you, Michele - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  *Mwah!*

This hand-painted wood panel, created with loving thoughts of you and the
kind of brightness you share, SO generously with the world, is your gift! 
In honor of your special day, and in celebration of your fun and fabulous 
products, I combined some of what I'm doing a LOT more of these days 
and a LOT of the products that I still used/love/worship and delight in...

Yes, ma'am!  It's a "good thing!" 

For my panel, I tried to capture the look of my favorite kind of days - 
not too hot, nor too cool.  Bright, beyond bright, but with a hint of 
contrast and mystery in the clouds...   

In celebration of the BIRTHDAY girl, her name was drawn and painted
in VERY bold and colorful paint, using this technique I shared with 
Want2Scrap a while back...   It's my FAVE way to customize and prepare 
for spontaneous use of bling! 'Cause ya'll KNOW how much we love to

Sparkle, like the DIAMOND you are, Michele, my darling!  

~Isn't this a great opportunity to drop a laser cut beauty like this, sweet gal!~

I'm looking forward to some eye-popping fabulousness, myself!  

THANKS, so much, for sharing the fun!
