Hi all! Hope you are well!

So I’m usually here with my  DIGI CHOOSDAY post (that will be posted a little later) but right now I am here with something a little different…….


As this anniversary is normally called the "7 year itch", the Polka Doodles team have embraced the prickly feeling by scratching that itch and mixing/scratching up some new images ... get the pun? Corny we know but the team have had great fun. So to embrace the “itchy scratch” the Polka Doodles team have thrown caution to the wind and “scratched up” a different kind of birthday celebration.

The birthday celebrations will be running for 2 weeks and each day someone from the Polka Doodles team will be sharing their “mixed/scratched up” image. It’s been all hush hush and secret squirrel too as no one knows who has been busy creating what and when they will be revealing their image... so the Polka Doodles team get to join in the fun too.

To add an extra layer of itchy fun, everyone has also been colouring up the new “scratched/mixed up” images, (still not knowing who designed them) and they will be sharing via their blogs and on FaceBook.

We really have scratched things up ... new merged images, no one knows who created what and no one knows when they’ll be sharing them ...!

Please do take the opportunity to visit the Polka Doodles team and see their new digi images because you will find a discount code (or two) along your way that you can use in the Polka Doodles shop.

So here is my effort using a fabulous merged image by one of my uber talented teamies!  They have used the gorgeous SERENITY PRINCESS and the door and mushroom embellies from the MAGIC GARDEN CD-ROM. Very clever and Nikky has been putting some of these 'scratched up' images in THE SHOP at a special price so pop over and take a look! Oooooh!
I have made one of my diorama/shadow box/theatre card thingy (not its real name) and some of the gorgeous embellies and papers from the MAGIC GARDEN CD-ROM.

Papers and embellies: MAGIC GARDEN CD-ROM
Colours used: Skin: 92, 89, 31, 32 + 28 – Hair: 75, 74, 68, 70, 7 – Pink: 93, 28, 29 – Yellow: 83, 84, 7 - Brown: 76, 80, 82 - Shading: 97, 98
Colouring Card: Neenah Desert Storm
Printing Card: Super Smooth

So pop over to our Facebook page to join in the birthday fun and see all the fabulous projects created by the DT.
Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments!  Have a lovely day!
