Strawberry Birthday

I want to say a big hello to all of the new followers to my blog ! I am so humbled that you choose to follow and I hope you keep enjoying my projects. I don't post on any special timetable.... just when I get something done, pictures taken, post written.... you get the idea :)

Todays projects were done for my grandaughters 6th birthday party that will be in May. Because she lives a couple of hours away, I wanted to get these finished and delivered early. I did the invites at home, but used our creating weekend away to do most of the assembly of the treat boxes.

All of the Strawberry Shortcake images came from Here. I printed out 16 sets of their invitations, then cut out the main image and lots of the little flowers. I added gel pen, Stickles and Puffy Paint to give them a little more.. Umph...

The Party Time is from Cutting Up, the strawberry is from Country Life and the inside wording is from Wild Card. I put Glossy Accents on the words and glittered up the edge of the strawberries :)


For the treat box, I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More,
Nursery Rhyme for the name and Create a Critter for the cupcake. Stampin Up punches were used for the backing of the cupcake and the Strawberry Shortcake logo and the flower.

The papers are Stampin Up and DCWV.

If I have forgotten any details you would like to now, just leave me a comment and I will get them to you .

Oh yea, I made 15 invitations and 25 treat boxes... Thats alot of cutting and pasting :)

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Blog Obsessed

Ok, I am standing up in front of the room and announcing that I have a problem and I need help!  I can't stop following new blogs. At the rate I'm going, my entire summer vacation will be spent getting through all the new posts that I am missing. I will have to quit my job and give up all my crafting time just to visit each blog everyday! Oh no... is there a support group for this, or am I the only one with this addiction??

Just to prove my point, I am sharing this Link Up Party that Getting Cricky is hosting.

When I added my blog to her list I was #195. That means that there are 194 potential new blogs for me to follow..... oh my goodness....

But, if you want to find some new blogs to follow and also get some new followers of your own... then head on over and join the fun !

I am spending the weekend with my 2 daughters for a crafting blitz. We each have a specific project to work on, so I will have some new things to share next week.

I'm off to feed my need for new blogs....

Thanks for stopping by :)
