Happy Birthday PPF!!!

created at picjoke.net

Welcome to Week 1, Year 6 of Paint Party Friday!
(Happy 5th Birthday Paint Party Friday!!!)
Yes, you read that right... Today our little blog turns 5 years old!!!

As we head into our 6th year, we can't help but reflect on all of the wonderful friends we've made, all of the beautiful paintings we've admired, and how this little space has turned into so much more than we ever imagined!  We are so thankful for all of the painters (both old & new) who come to play each week... Without you, Paint Party Friday wouldn't be the creative, supportive, and energetic party place that it is!  So, today we celebrate YOU, our PPF Family!


And, since no birthday party is complete without presents, we are giving away 5, 1-inch Paint Party Friday necklaces to celebrate our 5 year milestone!
(5 winners will be chosen at random from this week's party participants and announced at next week's party!)

Now... Let's Party!!!

As always, please make sure to use your post URL address NOT your blog home page URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Week 1 and Week 2 posts.
Have fun & good luck!
