Happy New Year Cocoa!

Wow...can you believe it is almost 2011! Remember 11 years ago when the world was panicking about the Y2K bug? LOL There was a whole mess of concern with that. Well here we are 11 years later, and our computers still work...lol. Well today we have a new challenge for you at the Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog. Our challenge this week is "Celebrate"! I decided to go with celebrating the new year. Since I spent the entire month of December celebrating birthdays...lol. The best part is January only brings 4 more birthdays in my family. Well here is my "Celebrate" creation. I started by printing out the Chef Cocoa Digi. I colored Cocoa with markers, and used a teal marker around the trim of the hat. I added the 2011 to the hat before I printed the image. Now that was a bit tricky, but thankfully I have a techie hubby who helped me...lol. I also made the sentiment in a word document and printed that out. I used the teal marker around the edge of that too. I then fussy cut the image and oval sentiment, and layered them onto the PP. So I have to explain why I picked this color. I recently read an article on Yahoo that said Honeysuckle is the color of 2011, so I decided to use it. Teal was 2010 in case you didn't' know...lol. The PP is some I had in my stash. I layered that onto the Coredinations "honeysuckle" like color, and sanded the edges. Last I added the little teal pearls. I also made Cocoa's tail stick up from the card. My DH thought that was really cool...lol. Well it is your turn now. Show us your Celebrating Cocoa creation! Be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Cocoa Blog and see what the DT has created for inspiration, and then link your creation up for us to see.
OH and HAPPY 2011!!!!!
