New CES Challenge and I have 3 reasons to celebrate - Happy 21st Harry,Exam results and some news!!

Morning everyone, try not to speak too loudly!!  I'm feeling a little delicate this morning as we had Part One of my son, Harry's 21st Celebrations last night - a Bavarian Beer fest themed party for his friends!!! I'll put up some pics later!  Happy Birthday Harry!!
My youngest daughter, Emily, wasn't here as she has gone to Reading for a music festival and I'm sure is celebrating her fabulous GCSE results - 4 A stars, 4 As, 4Bs and a C.  Well done pickle!!
Reasons to celebrate number 3:  I've just been picked to join the fabulous Whiff of Joy DT!!!!
Please take our banner for your blog
 Cannot quite believe it - just hope I don't wake up soon!!  Thanks for having me ladies - I'm waving and doing the happy dance ( but very quietly!!)
Any how, on to today's challenge at CES Challenges which has been chosen by our awesome Jane ( oh and one of my new teamies at WOJ!!).
Jane has chosen the gorgeous colour combo of Brown, Pink and Aqua which is so yummy. 
I felt spoilt for choice as to what papers to use from the fabulous selection that Emma has in stock here.  In the end I went for a combo of  Echo Park Happy Days and My Minds Eye Lost and Found - they are almost too lovely to be used!!  And isn't this image from Mo's Digital Pencil just the sweetest - The Tea Cup Fairy - free fairy with every cuppa!!
I've coloured the image with  a mixture of Promarkers, the new Flexmarkers and a couple of Copics. 
You can just see here that I've sprinkled the flowers with Crystal Glamour Dust that Emma has just got in stock - she also stocks these Cherry Blossom blooms and and the curly flower layers.  And the sparkly gems - love these, they're slightly irridescent!

As always, Emma is offering a fabby £10 voucher to spend in her store (excluding postage) so play along with us to be in with a chance - or just pop over to Emma's anyway and treat yourself - I'm celebrating!!!  Check out all the awesome makes from mywonderful CES teamies here.

Right, just off to Sainsburys now, to get some food for a family lunch tomorrow.  Later today, we're off to Nick's Uncle's for his 65th birthday celebrations - Harry and Steve share the same birthday and so the same party!!!  Happy Birthday Boys and thanks for the party Uncle Steve!!!
