A Spring Wreath

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I have a wreath to share with you today.  Of course I had a little help from my Mommy.  I wanted to keep it super simple. 

I started with a grapevine wreath and added some hibiscus along with some fillers.  I purchased the wooden "E" painted it white and hand painted the polka dots on it so they aren't too perfect.  LOL  Last but not least I made a green bow and there you have it a spring wreath!  

Until next time...............

The Invite

Okay, so I dug around and guess what I didn't take any pics of the invitation once it was completed.  But here are some pics as I was making it and sending it to my DIL for her approval. 

I used the princess party Cricut cartridge to cut out the invites.  They were cut at 5 1/2. 

 I punched the snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punch.

I created the "Elsa" silhouette using my Cameo and the frame was cut using my Cricut.  I matted the invite onto a water glitter mat and then adhered it to the inside to the card. 

Note:  First off this was not my original idea, I found a card on Pinterest that I liked and scrap lifted it.  Secondly, I made some changes to the outside of the card, rather than using the shimmery paper, I changed it to the white glitter paper.  I'm hoping someone in my family has one and I can update my post with the finished project.  

I can't believe I didn't take any pics!

Thanks for stopping by!  
Until next time........

A Winter Wonderland/Frozen Birthday Party

Hello!  How are you?  It's been a while since I posted just to post.  So sorry about that.  I have a couple of projects to share today.  My grand daughter just had her first birthday party and it was a Winter Wonderland/Frozen Party!  I have to say my DIL did a fantastic job with the decor. 

I made a couple of banners:

 FYI: This is not completed, but the only close up to show that each of the snowflakes had some bling.

To create the banners, I used a combination of my Cricut and my Cameo. 

I was also lucky enough to make her cake.  LOL

And a smash cake! 

As I mentioned earlier, my DIL did a FANTASTIC job decorating:

Last but not least the Princess herself!

Just like Cinderella, she lost her shoe!  LOL 

I hope you enjoyed my pics today.  I'm looking for a pic of the invitation I created but for some reason I can't seem to locate it.  Yikes, did I not take a pic????

See you again soon!
