Cactus and Llama Party

cactus and llama party

I am so excited to show you this cactus and llama party today. It all started with my free design of the cactus cupcake toppers over on Silhouette this week. I couldn’t just leave it as a single cactus design. I don’t know why, but it drove me crazy. So I worked some crazy hours designing a full party this week. I’m so glad I did! The colors and llamas make this the happiest party I’ve ever done. How can you not smile when you see llamas? tall cactus cupcake topper

Cupcake Toppers

Look how cute the cupcakes are placed in terra cotta pots. It’s those small details that go a long way in a party. These would also be great gifts for a friend when someone needs a little pick-me-up or when they just needs a sweet treat. :)

These cactus cupcake toppers are free as part of my artist feature with Silhouette this week. If you haven’t already grabbed it, make sure you do before it ends tomorrow. cactus cupcakes in terra cotta pot

How to Make Cactus Cupcakes

  1. Pipe some vanilla frosting on top of your cupcakes.
  2. Add gold sprinkles to the top.
  3. Cut out the cactus cupcake toppers and insert in the top.
  4. Fill the bottom of your terra cotta pots with some paper to keep the cupcake from falling to the bottom where you won’t be able to see the top.
  5. Place cupcakes in pots.

Llama Prints

I love the texture and color the basket full of yarn brings to the whole party set up. I added a framed llama print to tie it in with the rest of the table. To make the 5×7 print, I used this pink and teal llama and just added a rectangle behind it. Using the eyedropper tool in Silhouette Studio, you can select and give it the same background color. I think I’ll keep this frame up in my house. Every time my daughter sees the llamas she gets the giggles. Having it out for everyone to see and hearing her laugh sounds like a good idea.

Llama Tags

You can easily dress up any drink you are serving with these llama tags. These would also be so cute on party favors or used as gift tags. I made cactus tags also that would look so great mixed in if you had a variety of colored drinks, or even bottles of red or orange soda. cactus and llama party garlands

Tassel and Llama Garlands

My original idea was to make a bunch of yarn tassels and string them up for the garland. The laziness in me won (no surprise there) and there was no way I was going to make that many. I drew some tassels and cut them out with the Silhouette CAMEO. This was sooooo much faster! I just used a little adhesive on the inside and then folded it over the twine. I love the simplicity of it, yet it adds so much color and looks great next to the llama banner.

The detail of the pom poms around each llama makes this banner so much fun. The banner was assembled the same way as the tassel garland. There is a flap at the top that folds over along the perforated line to run your twine through before you glue the flap down.

All of my designs are 25% off in the Silhouette store through tomorrow. Head over and stock up on all the party designs while the sale is on. Don’t forget to download the free cactus cupcake topper while you’re there.

Candy Shop Party Decorations and Favor Boxes

candy party shop tabletopI had this idea I just couldn’t get out of my head, and I couldn’t focus on anything else until I created it. Can any of you relate? This candy shop originally started for a Valentine party, but as I continued to create and the colors started coming, I knew it would be a fun party any time of year. Wouldn’t this be a fun birthday party or maybe just a day with the girls talking and making fun candy treats?

candy shop party favor boxesEverything in this party is so easy to create because all the hard work is done for you. Those darling candy shop boxes are print and cut files. Just print them out and cut with your Silhouette. Glue the boxes together and fill for guests, or have them fill their own for a great party favor. Fill your own party favors… can’t get much easier than that.

candy shop boxes candy shop party tableWe always see candy bars set up using the big, glass apothecary jars. For this party, I wanted to show how you can use any container you have on hand, big or small. I bought those little doll house shelves for an entirely different project, but they fit so perfectly with the candy shop decorations and favor boxes that I had to use them. I cut out a few of the candy pieces, strung them together for a little garland and hung it across the top. A small project, but it adds some great detail and variety to all the jars of candy. candy shop candy garlandcandy shop partyThe heart fan backdrop turned out to be my favorite part. It adds so much color and texture. A huge perk of this backdrop… it is so so easy to make and comes together very quickly. I actually spent about 15 hours on a different backdrop for this party. It was so cool, but didn’t look good with this set up. I plan on using it for another party though, so don’t panic. :) After spending all that time on a backdrop that just wasn’t working I threw this together in an hour and I love it! Wouldn’t those hearts turned upside-down be so cute as fins for a mermaid party? Always a good thing when you can get more than one use out of a project. heart fan backdrop

candy shop candy lights

For the final detail, I wrapped some ball lights in cellophane and had them pouring over a container like candy overflowing from a jar. The colors are so fun and the shape of these lights is so playful. They are my new favorite party accessory. And by new, I mean I have been using them in parties for a little over a year, and I’m not even close to being sick of them. :)

I hope you enjoy it as much as my kids and I already have. You can find all files to print and cut each piece of this candy shop party below.

Christmas Advent Calendar

santa-beard-countdown-6

Yesterday was a busy and exciting day for us. The kids put on their new Christmas pajamas and we went and did our annual Santa pictures. Each of the boys asked for a BB gun, which they have been asking for all month long so there was no surprise there. When Santa asked Reese what she wanted, she confidently exclaimed “A SHOTGUN!”. A what??? I didn’t even know she knew the word “shotgun”. Like any good mother would, I quickly shot the idea down and told her she wasn’t getting one and to try again. She then asked for a shelf. A shelf? Haha! This girl kills me. All of them were so good the entire time and I just wanted to cover them in kisses. I really lucked out with these kiddos.

santa-beard-countdown-3

When we got home everyone got to color their own Santa advent calendar. I even let them use glitter, so they were definitely loving life. While they were coloring,  Jax said with a smile, “I love this day!” The rest of the kids agreed and started talking about how much fun they had had doing Christmas activities all day. It’s those kind of moments that just make my heart so happy!santa-beard-countdown-2

Don’t forget to blow off the extra glitter!

santa-beard-countdown-kidsWe set up a card making station in their playroom to leave up during the holidays. I’ll share more about that later, but it made the perfect spot for today’s fun. There are two versions of this calendar. One that is colored and ready to be hung, and a black and white coloring page.

santa-beard-countdown-hatAlthough the file says “print and cut”, you don’t need to cut anything out. You can simply print the page and you’re done. The Silhouette designing software is FREE. So even if you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, you can still use it to design cards and other projects, then print. Or in this case, you can just download the Santa advent calendar and print it out. Add a cotton ball each day of the month, and when Christmas arrives, Santa will have a nice fluffy beard to keep him warm while he delivers presents.

santa-beard-countdown-tableIt’s never too late to make an advent calendar. In fact, the further into the month you make it, the more days you get to fill in right away. It’s like making a to-do list and checking off half of it instantly. So satisfying.

You can find both versions of this advent calendar, by clicking on the images below.

Christmas Village

christmas-village-advent-calThis Christmas advent calendar started out with just the idea of making a Christmas house gift box. When I finished this first box, I thought a little village would be fun. From there it grew into an advent calendar. You can put treats or notes with activities in the boxes, under the trees and in the tiny gifts on the sleigh. Make more boxes and trees and you can do the advent for the whole month of December. Use less boxes and do it for the 12 days of Christmas. This design is flexible in how many days you will be counting down, so you can start it any time of the month.

christmas-village-open-box

This little village would be so cute on a shelf or the centerpiece for a holiday party. You could even send the guests home with the little houses filled with party favors. christmas-village-from-abovechristmas-village-trees-and-snowflakes

There are so many fun details that make this little village magic. The lights on the houses, pine bough wreaths on windows and doors, and a peek inside each tiny home on every side of the box. The view of all the wrapped presents ready to be delivered to all the children on Christmas Eve is my favorite view into the Toy Shop. christmas-village-toy-shop-back-windows

When I think of elves, I think of them always having fun and enjoying everything around them. So I put a little snowman outside their house on one side, and a sled propped against the house and homemade snowflakes hanging in the window on the opposite side. And aren’t those itty bitty bows on the boxes just the cutest? christmas-village-toy-shop

The warmth of a fireplace with fresh cut logs on a sled outside, and the view of Santa’s coat, mittens and gloves hanging up in the back window are my favorite on Santa’s house. And that little mistletoe hanging above the door for when he greets Mrs. Claus looks so pretty. christmas-village-santa

christmas-village-cottage-2

Everything about this Christmas village advent calendar is so fun, but I think my very favorite part is the special mailbox for letters to Santa. There is even a tiny envelope addressed to the jolly man with a teeny stamp. The mail box opens and closes too!

Does the Elf on the Shelf visit your house? Wouldn’t it be fun to cut a larger mailbox and some envelopes out for your kids to write mini letters to Santa that your elf can deliver? There are so many different uses for this Christmas Village this holiday season.christmas-village-2

I hope you enjoy it as much as my kids and I already have. You can find all files to print and cut each piece of this Christmas village advent calendar below. Happy Holidays!

 

The Ultimate Summer Bucket List

We have been so busy checking all the fun things off our ultimate summer bucket list that I haven’t had time to post about it until now. I created 35 icons of activities for us to check off our bucket list this summer. summer bucket list pins

(Affiliate links below)

Summer Bucket List Pins

I used the print and cut feature with my Silhouette Cameo to cut them all out. Then I used a button maker to create buttons for each of my kids to earn, kind of like earning merit badges. As we completed an activity, my kids got to put the pin on their adventure backpacks. They each loved having their own. Some times during the week I’ll see them sitting with their backpacks looking at all of their pins and talking about the fun things they did. They always end up laughing and giggling… and begging to go on another adventure to earn a pin.

Summer Bucket List Stickers

If you don’t have a button maker, you can print them on sticker paper to use in a notebook. As you complete an activity, place a sticker on a page of your notebook. Older kids can write about it and keep it as a summer journal. Younger kids can draw pictures of their experience with each adventure. I just posted a video for making a cheap and simple notebook. Go check it out! This is such a fun way to bring the family together and create something that will keep those memories alive forever.

summer bucket list journal stickersI realize that summer is almost over, but there is still time during these warm days to check a few more things off your list. Why not send summer out with a bang and make it extra fun with these ultimate summer bucket list stickers? If you don’t use them all this year, there’s always next year, right? You can purchase the whole set of 35 icons for a deep discount in Silhouette’s Ready, Set, Make section of their design store. You can also grab each icon one at a time to customize your bucket list. Now get outside and start checking things off your list. That cool, fall weather will be here before you know it.

Ice Cream Party

ice cream party

There is a pretty big reason to celebrate around our house. We welcomed a new baby boy into the family last month and he is perfect. I decided to throw a surprise ice cream party for the kids to celebrate them, as well as eliminate any jealousy they may feel towards the new baby brother. (Which turns out, there isn’t any. They absolutely adore their baby brother.)baby ice cream party hat

Everyone wore party hats that looked like melting ice cream cones. The kids thought these were so funny and giggled that there was ice cream dripping off their heads. We even had a tiny one for the baby. They all loved his hat most of all, and it was hard to keep their little hands away from him. giant ice cream cone

Jax thought it was so funny to use all the ice cream cones that were stacked on the table. Of course I had to snap a picture of that happy face. Ice Cream Bar

The decorations for the party were simple and pretty minimal. After all, I did just have a baby. Give me a break. :) I didn’t make any banners or garlands for this one, and just stuck with a few table decorations.ice cream cone centerpiece

For the centerpiece I made a giant ice cream cone using the party hat cut file and a balloon. I attached them to the center pole of this IKEA planter. I filled the pot with gifts for each of the kids. Each gift bag was embellished with a dripping ice cream cone border to tie them into the ice cream theme. ice cream bar toppings sprinkles

Running down the center of the table were all the toppings for the ice cream bar. Each place setting had a hat, ice cream container and a utensil holder. We dished up the ice cream and then the kids could put on any toppings they wanted. I let them get pretty carried away, because this was a party after all.

I love that this party can be used to celebrate any occasion. It would be perfect for an upcoming graduation party, birthday or just to celebrate summer. Enjoy!

Black and White Tribal Party

IMG_0258

These two wild boys are really into a show they discovered on Netflix called “Yakari.” It’s about a Sioux Native American boy named Yakari, that has a gift that allows him to communicate with animals. My kids think he is the coolest. They are obsessed with animals and the fact that Yakari not only rides a horse, but also talks to animals, makes him the greatest person in the world. A tribal party seemed like a good pick for their fourth birthday. Don’t you think?tribal party invitation

As I was drawing all the animals they checked several times to make sure I included “Great Eagle” and some other animals from the show. All designs were approved by them. I’m pretty sure they run the show around here. :)

Decorations

My mother-in-law makes these amazing cakes for all the grandkids every year. This was the first year we had a friend party instead of a family one. She lives a few hours away, so she didn’t make their cake this year. I completely forgot to order one until the day before the party. Oops! That night I whipped up a few plastic cake toppers using my Silhouette Cameo and shrink film. It’s becoming my new favorite stuff to cut. You can check out my tutorial for cutting shrink film to see how you can make your own cake toppers.
DSC_2875DSC_2658

I created this simple banner using my Silhouette and the print and cut feature. If you don’t already print and cut party decorations or other projects, you must start. It saves so much time!!! DSC_2830Their birthday is a few days before Christmas. We threw the party two weeks after when things weren’t quite so busy. I took the Christmas decorations off our trees and strung some banners on them as party decorations.

Party Favors

DSC_2978

All of the party favors were given out as prizes for the different games we played at the party. I love the simplicity of these two games.

IMG_0301

The memory/matching game has 12 pieces total. Six different animals to match. I used Silhouette’s Temporary Tattoo Paper to transfer the icons to the wood discs. I applied them the same way would to your skin. When they were dry, I sprayed them with a matte sealer. I don’t know how well it will actually protect them, but so far, so good. We have played this game probably 100 times or more, and they still look like new. I’m calling that a win.DSC_2641DSC_2984

This tic-tac-toe game was so EASY to make. Seriously. Fastest party favor I have ever made. I used a sharpie to draw the tic-tac-toe board on a cotton drawstring bag (similar bag found here). Then I filled each bag with 5 arrowheads and 5 rocks. That’s it! Piece of cake, right?DSC_3051

I made feathered headbands ahead of time for each guest to wear. I painted white feathers with some black acrylic craft paint and let them dry. Then I just taped them to the inside of the headband. I love how they turned out.
DSC_3003

Another simple prize that was given out were these candy arrows. I filled some plastic tubes with Sixlets, then used glue dots to adhere the paper arrowhead and feather to each end.
DSC_2998

For one of the activities we made pinch pots. This party was for a bunch of 3 and 4-year-olds. They did surprisingly well at this. We went through each step of creating the pot together, then they used toothpicks to make designs on their pots. I used this homemade clay recipe and it worked out great. DSC_3013

Gingerbread House Decorating Party for Kids

gingerbread table

I hosted a gingerbread house decorating party for my twin boys and their friends. It was so fun and went so smooth I had to share my tips so you can host your own. Here are the details of the party and why it was the easiest and best party I’ve done with little kids. Once I showed the kids how to spread the frosting on the houses and put on candy, they didn’t need any help for the remainder of the party, and the majority of the kids sat there for 1.5 hours. Yep! Three-year-olds sitting there for 1.5 hours. It was a Christmas miracle! ;) The only time I was needed was to look and admire the wonderful job they were doing. It was awesome! Okay, so here’s the info on the party prep.

Gingerbread houses:

I bought these in a gingerbread village kit at target for $9. It includes 4 mini houses, candy and frosting. These kits are always stingy on the frosting and candy so I bought extra. The houses come with a base that’s about 3 inches. The perfect size for kids. Also the perfect size when you have to find a space in your house to display 3 houses your kids made. I would recommend putting them on a larger base so they can decorate a yard. My husband sliced up a log to use for our bases. My biggest tip for the whole party… ASSEMBLE HOUSES BEFORE THE PARTY! This made the party so much smoother than if I had to try to help each kid assemble their own. I used HOT GLUE to put them together. That saved so much time and made the houses very sturdy. After hot gluing, I piped along the edges with icing to make them look cuter and to fake the look of assembling with icing. These houses were strong and had no problem holding the 5 pounds of frosting the kids put on them.
gingerbread setting

Candy and frosting:

I bought a variety of candy in addition to what was included in the kit and divided them into bags for each kid. I didn’t worry about using royal icing because the houses were already built and we didn’t need super strong frosting to hold any structures. The store bought frosting works great. I looked for smaller candy because our houses were so small. The kit also included sprinkles. I put these in a separate container from the rest of the candy to make it easier for the kids to use.

Hot cocoa bar and snacks:

We had a mini hot cocoa bar with just marshmallows and candy canes for toppings. A few years ago I did a larger hot cocoa bar with several toppings and the whole nine yards. It was a waste. The only items people added were marshmallows, candy canes and whipped cream. Lesson learned. The smaller hot cocoa bar for this party was the perfect size. I also had a little platter of crackers, cheese and deli meat to help balance out all the candy they were consuming. They gobbled it up. All of the kids left with a little chocolate snowflake my boys helped me make with chocolate molds. They love to help and it was the perfect little party favor.
party favors
This party took less prep work than any of my others and was by far the funnest! I can’t even tell you how nice it was to be able to actually talk to the moms and chat while the kids decorated their houses. I’m sure most of it was the novelty that this is something we only do once a year, so it was extra special to the kids.
All of the cut files for placemats, food labels, and party favors will be available in the Silhouette design store soon. I’ll be sure to post here and let you know when they’re ready. I hope you found these tips helpful in planning a gingerbread decorating party of your own.

Valentine Detective Party | Party Favors

detective kit

This is the final post of the Valentine Detective Party. Today I’m sharing all the party favors and little details that helped really bring the theme of the party to life. The spy kit pictured above was issued to every agent/guest when they arrived at the party. I found the mustaches at the dollar store. The glasses are from Amazon. They are a little big for kids though. The mini magnifying glasses are also from Amazon. Hallelujah for Amazon Prime! Am I right?!

detective credentials

I made credentials for each guest to wear. You can have their parents email you a picture, or pull one from social media. Download the credentials print and cut file, then open it in Silhouette Studio. Now you can replace the filler info with each child’s info. I also included the font names in the file so you can download the same ones to match if you want. Import each child’s photo on the tag. Print then cut.

The clear cases are from Walmart. I have seen them at the dollar store before too. You can purchase the lanyards from Amazon.

detective badge

I love how the Silhouette Printable Gold Foil brings this secret agent badge to life. Download the badge, then print and cut it using your Silhouette. Cut another badge out of chipboard to make the badge more sturdy. Peel the backing off of the gold foil and adhere it to the chipboard. Peel the backing off the pin and stick it at the top of the heart on the back. Your badges are now ready to wear.

spy notebook and pen

These tiny notebooks are from Walmart. I think there were three in a pack for like $0.89. I love those kinds of prices. :) The spy pens are so cool. The ink is completely invisible until you use the light at the top of the pen to shine over your message. It’s like magic!

detective pen

Side note: I’ve been using these to keep my kids busy when I need to get work done. I draw a bunch of shapes on a paper and they try to find them all with the light. It’s a great activity for a busy/quiet bag.

evidence bag

Last but not least is this adorable party favor bag for the kids to take home with “evidence” of a good time. We had a Valentine exchange and used these as our Valentine boxes/bags. They were also used to haul all the spy/detective kit goodies home.

Download the evidence print and cut file. I put my paper bags through my laminator to “iron” them extra flat. Feed through your printer folded end first. My local copy shop also printed them on their machines for me too.

I have really enjoyed sharing all the details from my Valentine Detective Party. I hope you have found all these ideas helpful in hosting one of your own. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine Detective Party | Invitations

detective party kit

Every year I throw a Valentine party for my high school friends and their kids. It is so much fun, and a tradition I love. With a few of the kiddos being new readers, I thought it would be fun to do a Valentine detective party where they can solve different clues to find out who their secret admirer is. (It’s their mom by the way.)

I had so much fun planning this party. There are so many possibilities of games and party favors, that it was hard narrowing it down. This week I’ll take you through the whole party so that you can host your own. Today we’ll start with the invitations.

detective invitation envelopes

It was all about the details and getting all the little guests excited to join the party. I wanted the fun to start the moment they received it in the mail. I stamped the mailing envelope and file folder enclosed with a “top secret” stamp I made using the Silhouette Stamping Material. So easy, and gives it more of an authentic touch than my printer would.

detective invitation

This is where it gets fun. All the little extra pieces and details inside the folder make it so much more exciting when you can move and interact with the invitation.

detective invitation mystery pics

Paper clipped to the inside of the folder are suspect profiles of their secret admirer(s). I saved the file as a .jpg image and printed it from my phone using my handy Instax printer. I love that thing!

detective invitation steps

The information to the party had to be read with the special heart decoder enclosed. This was a bit tricky to make on the design end of things, but I figured it all out and made it so easy for you. Yay! You can still see the bolded blue areas without the decoder, but the regular text can’t be read without it.

How to make decoder invitations:

Supplies Needed:

Directions:

Printed Invitation

  1. Download the Top Secret Invitation.
  2. Add your own party details and information to the blue layer using the same color of blue as the other text.
  3. Print the blue layer of invitation.
  4. Print the red squiggle layer directly on top of the blue invitation you have already printed.
  5. Cut out the invitation.

magnifying glass steps

Decoder Lens

  1. Download the magnifying glass die cut
  2. Cut out two magnifying glasses
  3. Cut out a small piece of red cellophane to go in between to the magnifying glass pieces.
  4. Glue the cellophane to cover the center opening of the magnifying glass.
  5. Glue the second magnifying glass on top of the other, with the red cellophane in between the two layers. This creates the decoder lens to read the invitation.

detective invitation 1

Sometimes when I spend this much time on an invitation I wonder if it was really worth it. I enjoy making them, but do people really care what the invitation looks like? At the party, several of the kids told me how cool the invitation was and that they had been reading it all week. One even brought it with her in the car because she was so excited for the party and wanted to decode the invitation again. So, was it worth it? Absolutely! I sure love those cute kiddos and their amazing moms.

Weather Chart

weather chart and cards

I am doing a little preschool at home for my boys this year. They are only two so I’m keeping it pretty informal and simple. I made a few things for “circle time” I wanted to share incase any of you out there would like to do the same thing.

Part of our circle time will be talking about the weather and seasons. I made this weather chart wheel that we can spin to point to the weather each day. There are also cards we can place on the calendar so we can see the weather patterns through the month to hopefully give them a better idea of seasons.

weather chart

Supplies Needed:

  • Weather Chart
  • cardstock
  • adhesive
  • brad
  • foam core/chipboard (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cut out pieces. Glue to foam core or chipboard if you would like to make your chart more sturdy.
  2. Layer the pieces with the wheel over top the background and the arrow on top.
  3. To make the arrow spin, insert a brad through the arrow and chart. Glue the chart to the background.
  4. The make the arrow stay still while the wheel spins, insert the brad through the arrow and glue the underside of the brad to the top of the arrow. After it has dried, place the brad/arrow through the wheel and background. Glue the brad to the background.

Calendar

planner blog cover

Here’s a great little project to get your kids excited for school. A simple calendar and planner that they can mark holidays, birthdays, field trips or even track the weather in. I printed out a few blank calendars on cardstock. Four calendars on a sheet, two on each side. I then printed out all the holiday icons onto sticker paper and used my Silhouette to cut them into squares with the Print and Cut feature. You could also use the new PixScan mat.

Once you have everything printed and cut, fold your calendars in half to make a booklet. You can then fill the months and dates on the calendar, a great writing and counting exercise for your kids. Finally you get to put the stickers on all the important dates and start using the planner.

You can find the blank calendar and all the calendar icons in the Silhouette online store. Silhouette is also having a great Back to School promotion on their machines as well as their specialty media (sticker paper, cotton canvas, gold foil, etc.)

Brush Script Cards

full heart crop

I have some new brush script cards in the Silhouette store today. They are sized 4×6 and 3×4, perfect for journaling and scrapbooking. I scaled them down and used them as tags on little gifts for friends. I love this top quote. It fits me perfectly. With twin toddler boys and a 2 month old baby, my hands are definitely full, but so is my heart. A friend of mine just had twins and I knew this tag was the best fit for her treat.

Reese!

I have not blogged for a while and those of you following me on Instagram have seen why. I just had a baby a month ago and am still getting used to life with three. My little Reese is the sweetest baby and it’s hard to imagine our life before her. My boys are so in love with her and love to give her kisses and hugs all day. How could you not want to kiss those chubby cheeks! They sing to her when she cries and love to take care of her. She gets these big eyes with a terrified look on her face when she hears them near. Haha! I don’t blame her. At 2 years old, their kisses are wet and their hugs aren’t always soft. They do adore her though, and I am so happy.

I originally made all of these flowers I’ve been featuring on my blog for a piece of art to hang in Reese’s room. I love the versatility of them and hope you have enjoyed using them as well.

My sister had her first baby a few days after me. How fun is that! This is the invitation for her shower (address is fake) along with little party favors. I used the spring bouquets and blossoms with the pink dot pattern paper. You can use these designs for more party decor such as cupcake toppers, banners and more. It turned out great and we had a wonderful time celebrating.

These two little cousins are going to be the best of friends and I am so excited to see them grow up together. They are such sweet little babies and we love having them in our family.
