Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #34 September 19, 2008

Time for Taylor!  Great sketches for you to try.  You don’t have to use cupcake images to participate.  I just had to use my SU! Cheers to You set on this one.

Look at the card front, close your eyes, and “poof”…your on a hawaiian island with this fruity drink lol.  Great for newlyweds with an exotic honeymoon planned, someone turning 21, or just because.
