Happy Birthday CDAC Group Contest!

Celebrate good times, come on! (Let's celebrate)
Celebrate good times, come on! (Let's celebrate)

There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times, and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you

Did I hear someone say it's time to celebrate?!  Yup, you heard right!  A year ago this Sunday, Candy formed the TLC group on the CDAC for Paulette - I still can't believe a year has flown by?!  Where did the time go?! 

Every birthday requires a little par-tay and what better way to celebrate the momentus occasion then with a little contest?!  You game?  Well here's the scoop:  Paulette has graciously offered up two, very different images for you to choose from to use on your creation.  Here's the twist, YOU have to come up with the sentiment for whichever image you choose, and stick it on your creation.   

For my card today, I chose to use the vintage Learn to Walk image offered for the blog contest; and my sentiment reads, "Taking the first step is half the battle".

I just adore this image!  Oddly enough, after I made the decision to do pastels, I realized that I really didn't have a lot of embellies in those colors, so I decided to try making my own "faux primas".  If you'd like to give it a go yourself, check out this vid on youtube by clicking here - I found it super simple follow!   A little tricky at first, but not hard at all and the results are unbelievable!

To check out all the contest deets and grab one of the freebies for the contest, click here.  You have until Sunday to play along and there are some pretty fabulous prize packages for the winners (yup, there will be more than one winner!), which you definately do not want to miss out on!
