City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #50 *Celebrate Good Times*

Hi ALL!! It is Cheryl back this week as your hostess with the theme of CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES!! *and I hope you can say...they are ALL GOOD TIMES! It is funny how oft times even the things that seem like challenges turn out to be blessings in disguise. So I hope you come celebrate with us this week...your challenge is simple...to use a banner or the word "party" somewhere on your project. There is a party goin' on right HERE at City Crafter and I can't wait to see what the celebration brings! I'm always so excited to see what you all create with each challenge. So get your party on and join the CELEBRATION! 

~ Hugs, Cheryl

Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, all the way from Russia, please welcome - Olga (also known as Pastilka on her blog)

Here's a liitle about  in her own words: My name is Olga, some time ago I was a business woman, had business and worked in the office but now I'm a mom of little girl. I born and lived in Russia, in Moscow. Five months ago, together with my husband and daughter, we moved to the North Cyprus due to my husband's work. I have no friends here, I'm alone but my scrapbooking, my blog and lovely followers make my life happy! For this challenge I made a card, an altered box for pipes and a paper candy (it can be use as a card or as a guest card). So join in, let's celebrate!
