Lizzy’s Birthday

Leave a comment


Today I’m sharing pics of my daughter, Lizzy’s, 8th birthday cake and card.  I’m ashamed to say it was almost a month ago and I haven’t found the time to post yet!!  I think I need to re-arrange my priorities!  Haha!

Lizzy decorated her own cake, and had tons of fun doing it!…

10 Thoughts

Hello :-)

Summer is off to a busy start!  I’m still trying to get my feet under me :-)

We just had our 11th wedding anniversary last week.  I wanted something fun and summery for my hubby’s card. I decided to create “outside the box”.   He’s always good for a chuckle :-)  So, do you think this is too far out of the box???

Isn’t it awesome?!  It screams summer to me!  My hubby loved it :-)

Toast:  I drew and cut out bread on Creamy Caramel CS; embossed it with CB Tiny Mosaic embossing folder; sponged so it looks like toast.

Bacon:  Embossed Bravo Burgundy CS with CB Distressed Stripes embossing folder; sponged raised areas; cut in strips.

Tomato:  Cut circles out of Riding Hood Red CS using Nestabilites.

Lettuce:  Drew and cut out a piece of lettuce-shaped Wild Wasabi CS; paper crimped it several times; crumpled it up then flattened it out a little.

Bite:  Scalloped Circle Nestabilities cut out each layer.

Tooth Pick:  Cut iridescent Easter grass into tiny pieces; dipped the end of the toothpick in glue; rolled the toothpick in grass pieces and let it dry.

Doesn’t it scream summer?  Check out some awesome talent and more summer inspiration HERE at the Pals Paper Arts blog!

Have a great weekend!!
