Happy Birthday Suzanne!

Good morning everyone,

The Color Me Creative Design Team has a secret!!!  Today we are hopping along to wish our fearless leader, Suzanne Dean, a VERY happy birthday!!!  Suzanne is the owner/creator of the Color Me Creative classroom site and, as many of you know, teaches her Copic classes online and on the road!  She is one busy momma and we thought we’d take time to wish her a happy day and hope she gets to sit with her Cherry Coke and donuts (ya, a fav combination of hers!) and relax a bit today and enjoy the hop!

Each of us decided it would be fun to remember Suzanne today in “typical Suzanne” style!  Our creations will either help remember a “funny travel moment” with Suzanne or… share a secret about Suzanne.  Ha!!!  Bet she didn’t see this coming!!! LOL

Here is what I created today….


This is a snapshot of what I know of our sweet Suzanne … a simple and beautiful person inside and outside – who thinks the best of someone, who always sees life from the positive; who would tweet me just to say hello during a 45 min layover at the Minneapolis airport  (I ♥ that!) and who has just a bit of loopy thrown in too. Remember when you took the wrong meds on a plane ride – LOOPY indeed! What a awesome and fun combination of a person she is. Happy Birthday my friend – I’m glad we got to hang out at CHA this year!

Now hop on over to the rest of the DT’s blog to see what they are sharing about Suzanne.  ;-)

Steph Lee (you are here)

 and last but not least, don’t forget to head on over to the CMC Classroom site to wish Suzanne a Happy Birthday.
