It is great to see you all at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge  Anniversary Celebrations - this week we have plenty more action for you..,yes we are having a Dance Party - have you got your party clothes ready...

There's a party goin' on right here
A celebration to last throughout the years
So bring your good times and your laughter too
We gonna celebrate your party with you!


Do you want to see  what I am wearing...obviously I have had a little bit of 'work done!' LOL!  IF ONLY!!!  Let me dream people!!! LOL!

We sent out the invitations, we teased you with our comments, and now it is time to “Get Down and Party” with the Midnight Madness girls. All week long the party is going on so keep checking back at PARTY CENTRAL as we will be changing it up. We are going to be having so much fun and hope you will be joining us. So ladies, now is the time to put on those party dresses and dancing shoes!!! Now let’s get the party started.

 Turn up the volume when you get over there and journey back with us to the “Disco Era”. You know you can’t sit still listening to these great hits of the 70”s. Who can forget “Saturday Night Fever” and John Travolta thrilling us with his dance moves? Let’s see some of your dance moves….don’t be shy!!!

Check in over at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for today's comment challenge
Each day something different will be posted on the blog to keep the party going. To be eligible for the prizes, make sure you come back each day to see the new party theme and post another comment.

Before the party gets too 'WILD' I will show you my card for this weeks celebrations - I have used an image from this weeks Bonus sponsor The Stamping Boutique - this adorable image was a pleasure to use.

and fitted so perfectly with this week's sketch. I used large scallops down the right side to keep to the sketch, along with small rectangles of DP layered into black CS.  Although I have followed the fancy Sketch for this week, I have tried to keep it more CAS, as this image 'does it all ' really!

 I coloured her with SU Chalks (no prizes for guessing that one - LOL!)  My DH suggested I add the golden glow - and he was right...he has a great eye for detail - phew!  Sometimes the white background works for the image and other times it needs something a bit more...in my opinion!!

I did some 'fussing cutting' and popped up the image on foam dots

and added a bit of shimmer

and now...here, without any further interruptions is this week's sketch

Fancy something a little more CAS - just click here for this week's "YOUR CHOICE"  - it is as Easy as 1-2-3
