Good mooooooooooorning world!

It's actually a rainy day outside in these parts of the world, but I'm not about to let a little shower put a damper on the party. So to put all my 69 (not 68 as posted earlier) guests in the party mood, let's groove to my currently favorite dance tune from Craig David :



I am simply addicted to this song right now. I dance to it in my bedroom, while taking a bath, and even during my lunch break I'd sneak off to the restroom, put on my iPod and dance my heart out *grin*.

Now that you are hopefully on the party mood, let's get the ball rolling shall we? IMPORTANT: If you haven't read the party's house rules, please read THIS first before continuing.

The first game is really pretty easy. But before I give you the instructions, here's what the 2 winners for this game will get:


It's Pack 1 of my Cupcake Shop Template. You'll get 16 files all in all:
  • 6 layered, greyscale Photoshop templates
  • 6 lineart (outline) .png
  • 4 colored cupcakes in .png

Here's a closer look at the colored cupcakes:


I used the templates in the pack as clipping masks to textures. Which reminds me, I'll be posting a tutorial on how you can achieve the same look or how to color my templates and .png linearts (as 'requested' by SimplySarah) :-)

After this round, the pack will be put up at Scrap-Team Shop for $5 each and sold at a limited quantity of only 6 pieces. The usage license is pretty generous: commercial use for digi and hybrid products, S4O/S4H, Photographer's license and web/blog use license, the only restriction being you don't redistribute the files as is, you don't claim them as your own, and you don't sell for commercial use the derivative products.

To win this, the rules are pretty simple. Complete the following 3 phrases which I lifted from our party song for this post:


"I can't sleep till ..."
"I can't live without..."
"I know that it's love because..."


Blogger guests, write your answers in a post in your blog. Mention first that it is your entry to my first party game, put a link to my blog in that post, then come back here and leave your entry post's permalink in Mister Linky below. And despite what Mister Linky says, it's not necessary to leave a comment :-)

For email guests, complete the same phrases and then email me your answers and indicate in your subject line: Doodly Party Game #1: INSOMNIA.


There will be 2 winners- one will be chosen according to who gives the most interesting answer (a couple of my friends will vote for winner #1). Winner #2 will be chosen via raffle draw. After me and my friends choose winner #1, I will write down the names of the remaining participants and randomly pick winner #2.

You have 3 days to complete this round. I placed a countdown widget below this post so participating guests can keep track of the deadline.

Hey was I first? I'm never first! Living in Alaska has its disadvantages when it comes to the time zone issue!

Good morning Angel! I've sent you my email just now. Had to do some thinking about my answers.

I just adore the cupcakes!!!! They would make such adorable birthday cards.

Got a really good chuckle reading about your dancing places. You paint a great picture with your words. I'll bet you're really good at your job!

Happy Birthday again!

Love you Angel,

Tita Anne
