Happy 7th Birthday Polkadoodles

Whoop Whoop it's birthday time at Polkadoodles and the design team have a little something special for you to celebrate....

As this anniversary is normally called the "7 year itch", the Polka Doodles team have embraced the prickly feeling by scratching that itch and mixing/scratching up some new images ... get the pun? Corny we know but the team have had great fun. So to embrace the “itchy scratch” the Polka Doodles team have thrown caution to the wind and “scratched up” a different kind of birthday celebration.

For my creation I have merged the beautiful Serenity Princess with some mushrooms/toadstools found in the fabulously useful Bonbon Belles collection. Relatively straight forward just opened both in my graphics programme and placed them where I thought best. I printed onto some water coloured card and actually gave watercolouring a go. So please be kind as it's my first attempt. I managed to create a the little scene. The sentiment and backing paper are also from the Serenity Fairy Wishes Collection.

The birthday celebrations will be running for 2 weeks and each day someone from the Polka Doodles team will be sharing their “mixed/scratched up” image. It’s been all hush hush and secret squirrel too as no one knows who has been busy creating what and when they will be revealing their image... so the Polka Doodles team get to join in the fun too. To add an extra layer of itchy fun, everyone has also been colouring up the new “scratched/mixed up” images, (still not knowing who designed them) and they will be sharing via their blogs and on Facebook.

We really have scratched things up ... new merged images, no one knows who created what and no one knows when they’ll be sharing them ...!
