Suzanne's Birthday Blog Hop

Happy Birthday Suzanne!!

The Color Me Creative Design Team has a secret!!! Today we are hopping along to wish our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean, a VERY happy birthday!!! Suzanne is the owner/creator of the Color Me Creative site and, as many of you know, teaches her Copic classes online and on the road! She is one busy momma and we thought we'd take time to wish her a happy day and hope she gets to sit with her Cherry Coke and donuts (ya, a fav combination of hers!) and relax a bit today and enjoy the hop!

Each of us decided it would be fun to remember Suzanne today in "typical Suzanne" style! Our creations will either help remember a "funny travel moment" with Suzanne or... share a secret about Suzanne. Ha!!! Bet she didn't see this coming!!! LOL

Here is what I created today....

This is a cute little image By Crissy Armstrong called Three Cat Pile Up, I don't know what the issue is today but the pics no matter what I did seem dingy .
I had a another image for this card but I kept thinking about the cats all piled up and it reminds me of the many stories Suzanne has told the DT about her "SPILLS" at the airports in her mad dashes sometimes to get to her gate or leaving the gate Hehe:-) so I decided to use these cute guys and think of Suzanne LOL

Now hop on over to the rest of the DT's sites to see what they are sharing about Suzanne. ;-) you next stop should be Sandie
I am wishing Suzanne the best Birthday ever:-) XOXO I am proud to be on your DT and to be your friend

HERE is the line up:
Tina Gilliland
Michele Spera

Hope you enjoy your day, Suzanne, and remember... you're not getting older... you're getting ..... FUNN(I)ER!!! Ha!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! *HUGE HUGS*
