Candy Land Birthday Party

Candy Land Theme:
I decided to share this picture with you of my baby girl's 1st birthday party. Which shows you my beautiful cake if I can toot my own horn lol! just kidding! Just so you will know my hubby and sister-in-law helped so very much with this cake. This is my other hobby Baking which I love!! Well to be honest I have not make a cake like this since her party it was a little exhausting... but so fun doing the planning. Oh my this party took the energy out of me... let's just put it this way I was planning this since she was 4 months old! Sorry for the repeat I did a little rewind in mind on the day before:)
Long story short I decided to take cake decorating classes just for the occasion (by the way that took me 3 long months to complete). So Daniella someday you will be able to read this MOMMY AND DADDY HAD A BLAST!!! Everything on the cake was edible well except the plastic towers. My hubby and I did the arrangements and I made some chocolate lollipops to follow the candy theme... candy canes snowflakes, lollipop pinwheels, gumdrops. All candy used was to represent the theme it was like I was a kid again... oh so fun!!!
On to the two big fellows! My hubby the original crafter of the family he has ownership of these two, and of course with the help of my father-in-law. This project took them 88 hours to do...WOW unbelievable right! That's what I said:) What we do for our babies!
There was more going on at the party but these two were the big hits, so I hope you enjoyed:) Now planning her 2nd birthday party but this time a little more low key:)

Communion Invitation

This invitation was for my cousins two children that were going to be blessed with there First Communion. The cross that I used was a sizzix die cut that I borrowed from a friend the paper was of course Bo Bunny (because of her I love the Bo Bunny paper with all my heart lol!). I placed basic beige ribbon from Michael's behind the cross. I ran the white cardstock thru my cuttlebug and used the Moroccan Screen A2 folder, then scored two lines right under (just so it wouldn't look funny), and I embossed the Blessed stamp with I believe the name of the powder was hazelnut. Last thing it needed was a little shine so I added a small bling in the middle of the cross. Hope you like it!

Candy Bar

I made this Candy Bar back on Oct. 2009 for my niece's 15th birthday party. The material used was basic black satin ribbon, red-black-zebra print cardstock, black vinyl for the monogram (the hubby did that), and red & black feathers. The scalloped circle used on the zebra cardstock was a die cut that I used from the Memory Garden Scrapbook Shoppe (Pharr,TX), also from the shoppe was circle punch used on the red cardstock. I also had takeout boxes to match, guest used these to fill up on the goodies.
