Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #28

Yay it's Friday!! I am so excited about this weekend. Saturday actually marks my 5 year wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been 5 years. It seems like just yesterday I was marrying my soul mate. So to celebrate our special day we are heading out to a wonderful restaurant called The Rainbow Lounge for dinner and then hitting up a comedy club for a good laugh and some drinks. It should be fun. My anniversary gift was the concert to John Mayer that we went to last weekend and, I gave him tickets to see Kenny Chesney next week. He has been dying to see him in concert so lucky for me it fell close to our anniversary. I can't wait.
I am also excited about the start of the Olympics! I can't wait to see the opening ceramony. I am especially excited about this years games because a friend from high school is going to be competing. Her name is Diana Lopez and she along with her two brothers are representing the USA Taekwondo team. Good luck guys!!

So, how do you kick off an amazing weekend?...Well, with an amazing Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge!! I love this sketch. (I know I say that about all of them!) I combined it with my serverly underused Papertrey Ink "It's A Celebration" set. I love its whimiscal images. To compliment the fun cheery look I picked some Basic Grey "Cupcake" patterned paper. The card base is PTI Lemon Tart card stock and the main image is matted with Berry Sorbet. Other accessories used are K&Co rhinestones, PTI ribbon, circle nesties, and glitter.
If you want to play along here are all the details you need to know.1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
