So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Chalk-Ah-Lot Challenge ... use chalk mixed with glue. It is not too difficult to do...simply put down a dab of glue and get your brush moist with glue....then put it in the chalk....bring it back to your dab of glue and mix and mix....keep adding until you get the desired color....I do it all with a paint brush and then paint my spot! Wash off with water and do the same for another color! Give it a try!!! You will be surprised at how easy and fun it is to do!!!

This one I used the Paper Studio Whimsy embossing folder and then applied the chalk direct to paper over the embossed area...wiped it off...then stamped the image from Stamp N Plus Scrap N with Grape Jelly Memento ink and also the Happy Birthday sentiment from Stamp  N Plus Scrap N. This was done on white GKD cs. Then I did the chalk with glue mixtures and painted my image...just did one color at a time. After it dried, I used the Sakura Glitter pens for a little accent. NO markers were used on this one at all!

Then the background was sponged with chalk direct to paper to create some green grass, blue sky and yellow sun. Added some ribbons, a bow and some pearls....and Happy Birthday to you!!!

Hope you will join us for this challenge!

Happy Birthday to You!
