Carson's Creations 3 Year Blogoversary

Welcome to the 3 Year Celebration for Carson's Creations. 
 Thank you for stopping by today to help me celebrate 3 years of crafting, blogging, and sharing. It has been a wonderful adventure and I want to THANK Yvette (The Little Things) for introducing me to the world of Cricut. If it wasn't for her talking me into getting my Expression, I may have never met all my FABULOUS crafty friends!

Everyone's project today will fit a theme...THREE. It could be 3 colors, 3 patterns, 3 embellishments, etc.  Try to find as many triples as you can! 

Here is my 3 Year Project...
I chose my favorite colors (brown and blue), but have also included a challenge for you. How many sets of 3's can you find?
 I used the Seize the Birthday sketch
 I selected this cupcake since the flower coordinates with the background paper. Plus, cupcakes are scrumptious and scream "Let's Celebrate!"
