"Children" Challenge at Mo's!

Hello again, my sweet friends!! I am so excited that I'm about to burst!! Why?, you ask . . . well, because  it's time for a new challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! And this one isn't just your normal fabulous challenge . . . this one is EXTRA SPECIAL because it's Mo's FIRST EVER . . .

"Children Challenge"
That's right . . . this one is for "Children" of ALL ages!!
Check HERE for complete details!! 

Ohhhh . . . I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!! And speaking of children . . . I just have to brag a bit! Our youngest granddaughter, Isla Bleu, is having her very first birthday on Saturday!!
Such a cutie patootie! And here's Isla's extra special 1st birthday card from her Gramma Pat!! (You may want to slip on a pair of sunglasses first! hehehe!! It's kinda bright!!)
OK . . . so, here's the deal . . . I'm not quite sure if Isla has a fave color yet, but I know her oldest sister, Ava, loves orange!! So . . . I opted for orange and pink! What's not to love about that?! Here's a close-up . . .
This precious little image is called "Kai is One" . . . and she's available HERE in Mo's online store. And, this is cool . . . Mo also has a little boy version of this first birthday darlin' . . . you can find him HERE.

See? Bright, huh?! I hope Isla loves it! Truthfully, she'd love it more if it tasted like cheese puffs, I think! hehe!! But, I'm sure her mom will love it . . . and hopefully she'll tuck it away someplace safe for posterity!!

Oh . . . and don't forget, Mo is awarding (selected at random) one $5.00 shopping spree at her online store for every 25 "adult" challenge participants!

Sooooo . . . that's it for me! Thanks so much for stopping by . . . and for leaving such sweet comments! Hugs . . .
