LFF #44 - Happy BeLATTEd Bday!

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!!

Boy, it's been one of those crazy weeks!!  But Friday is here and lots of fun stuff happening this weekend for me.  Hope you all having something fun going on as well.  Today's post is latte, but work keeps me too busy to do anything like I used to do.  Anyhoos I wanted to share my Happy BeLATTEd Birthday creation for Kathy.  It's only 1 month and 1 day latte!  Here's my share for LFF #44...  Be sure to read all the way through, who knows I might be giving something away...


It's a themed birthday present with a latte of the featured character, Latte Anya from The Greeting Farm!  When I purchased her I knew I had to make something themed for Kathy who loves her coffee.  She has tons of coffee mugs so I went a in a different direction.  I found a good selection of coffee themed items in the Target $1 section a few months ago.  I grabbed her some stickers, pens and this cute mini tissue box.


I couldn't resist inking Latte Anya a second time, so here she is on this CAS card.  I used punches to create the circle with the heart in it to mimic the one on the cup and the sentiment is handwritten.


I really couldn't stop there, I had to ink Latte Anya up one more time and added her to a candle. 


Note to self, next time use black ink and darker colors to make it a bit more vibrant.  (lol)  I used vellum paper this time instead of tissue paper.  Although it was great to use the colors really didn't blend very well. Will keep practicing and find that happy medium where it all works together.  But all-in-all it still turned out cute!  Here's a shot of the back of the candle with the signature circle and heart.  Me likey, might use it again.


The candle smells so good!  Coconut something, but after awhile it was overpowering.  Added scrap paper to the bottom and a pretty bow which can be easily removed if she decides to light the candle.  A latte to share in one post yea?  Well I couldn't resist.  You're all lucky I didn't take pictures of everything I got her!  Now I'm in a good mood so if you can tell me how many times I used latte in my post you'll get something fun from me.  I will post the winner on Monday. 


Mahalo for reading all the way through.  Have a wonderful weekend!!
Hugs,
Lilo

ummm, it's too late for me to count. i think my eyes are closing. but i have this question about making these candles and maybe it's a little paranoid of me. so you color the image with copics which are alcohol-based markers and then you light the candle, does the candle burn really fast or could there possibly be a fire? even if the alcohol is dried? is that a weird question? cute projects!
