It's a Pink Elephant Birthday Hop!

And we're hopping to celebrate Ella  The Pink Elephant's 1st Birthday :)    The challenge on this hop was to look back through TPE and find a challenge and recreate it!  I went with Challenge #16 from last year.  If you found me from Stacie's blog, then you are in the right place on the hop.  If you are just arriving, or get lost along the way, don't fret!  You can start HERE.

Meet Luigi!  He is the cutest little Pizza guy I have ever laid my eyes on!  I couldn't wait to scoop him up when I saw him being released!  Luigi is also my submission for KL Stampin N Scrappin's Challenge #16 to do Paper Tole .... so I propped up his hat AND the pizza and gave him some 3D effect.  And he definitely has a pizza my heart :)   I inverted the sketch due to how big Luigi is and to make room for the sentiment as well and paired it with some brand new Bo Bunny Valentine papers ~ yummilicious!   And for Stampin' Sisters in Christ #25 to use "two different..." my 2 different are the brown and pink patterned papers! 

From here, hop on over to Melissa and see what she has for you today ~ TFL and enjoy the hop!

Deets:  Cardstock:  Melon Mambo & Pink Pirouette from SU!  Bazzill Brown; Stamps:  High Hopes Luigi & sentiment; Colored with Prismacolor markers; Fiskars punch, Ric-rac, ribbon, Bo Bunny DSP, Bo Bunny Button; Tombo, 3d dots
