WHAT'S ONE MORE CANDLE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!
All my rowdy friends are coming over to party!
At this blog hop, it's a party!! Our fellow blog creators have come up with awesome projects from cards, to decor, to all sorts of ways to make your Birthday bash the best! Here at this hop, you get all the presents! Many of the blogs will offer their own "presents" (blog candy) and I'll be giving away a Cricut Cartridge- Birthday Bash!
 I decided to do a 2 page 12x12 scrapbook layout. The adorable patterns are from the 'what a hoot' pattern set from Design on Cloud 9 as well as the 'birthday girl' (or boy) sets. I just LOVE how this one came out. It definitely ranks as one of my favorites.

Here is a close up of the owl coming out of the present. I just love his eyes. I also love the pretty paper and bows on the packages as well as the great balloons.
Here is a close up of the title. I added some glitter bling on the bottoms of each letter.
Another close up shot of this cutie. I love how yummy the ice cream cone looks. I used 'puffy paint' on the ice cream part.
This is my most favorite of all the owls that I created. I just love the two toned yellow. I also love how awesome this cake is. I did the frosting in brown slick paint and then sprinkled Martha Stewart glitter on top.
Here is a side close up shot of the cake. It really shows the sparkle of the frosting ~ Yum.

    1. Thank you soooo much Tricia. Welcome aboard. I have been a little MIA here on my blog this month because I had an awful bout of poison ivy. It was absolutely brutal. I am glad that it is totally behind me now. So check back often or you can follow me also on fb, http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/A-prata-design/256308347727229

    1. Wow, thanks so much for the compliments. I will give you another tip in using the puffy paint... you have to use a heat gun to make the 'puffy' come alive. Just make sure to not heat it up too long or else your paper will catch on fire. I have learned from experience ~ ooopppsss.
