Hi everyone! Laurel here!  Today is a very special day! We are celebrating our 100th challenge! Can you believe it? 100 challenges under our belt!!!! It is amazing! Thank YOU for all your support! It's because of you this challenge is thriving! And it's because of you we are in triple digits now! And to make things even more awesome, today's is my daugther's birthday! My sweet little girl is 2! So this definitely means IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE.

Our challenge theme this week seems appropriate. BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION! And for some extra fun, each design team member has invited a special "party peep" as I like to call it to be their special guest this week and celebrate with us. What that means for you is there is LOADS of inspiration below! LOADS from talented designers and friends...

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! These folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! So many stamp to choose from, I know. It's tough. We just heart them! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us! YOU ROCK!

And now.... Get ready for A LOT OF AWESOME projects from the DT and Party Peeps!!!! Our design team members will post their projects and immediately below their photos will be their party peeps project!  If you click on the name under the image, you will be taken to the individual blogs with all of the juicy details on the projects!

Laurel's special party guess is two fold! First up is the super sweet and fun Laura Stercx. She just celebrated her 18th birthday and created this adorable card and also has filmed a video for it as well!

And Laurel's second guest is the fab Julie Ebersole! Her giggle is contagious and I just heart her so! She puts up with my crazy and inspires me with all her work! She is a rock star!!! I was sooo thrilled when she said YES to my invitation!


Christy invited the lovely and extremely talented Paulina Nakamura to the party.
She created this adorable card to help us celebrate. Doesn't it just make you grin? 

Jenn invited a fellow creative east coast girl, Cheiron Brandon. They get to be creative together in real life a few times a year and she inspires Jenn always. She created this fun Lawn Fawn Party!

Nette's invited guest is the amazingly talented Tenia Nelson who created this fun paper-pieced card. 

And Chrissie's special guest is the fantastic Anika Lerche! She has the most incredible style and shows it off perfectly in this card!

Karin is so happy to tell you that my special party guest is no other than Miriam Prantner ( Sooner rather than Later ). You probably already know her, but if not; Miriam is SUPER talented, has won more challenges than I can count.  She also designs the coolest stamps and I just LOVE her fun and clever card designs! Isn't this just the cutest birthday card?!!!
