HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER ALISON

Yesterday was my oldest sister's birthday. I had to wait til today to show you all what I made her.
Look, I made her a 3D sewing machine.
This is all made from paper with a real needle. The pattern is from Lori Whitlock.
When I finished, I thought it was a bit plain. So I attempted to dress it up a bit with paint and may have gone a little overboard.
I did alter the pattern a make it into a box to hide some yummy treats inside.
Thanks so much for looking.

GRAND FINALE~ CAKE

So for Harper's last gift of the day, I made birthday cake.
YUM
I just love how this cake came out. It looks so real.
Thanks so much for spending the day celebrating Harper's birthday. I am sure that she loved it and will enjoy her play felt food for days to come.

HARPER'S SUPPER

The celebration continues...here is supper.
Here is what is inside...
Felt pizza
Yum, green pepper, pepperoni, mushroom, and onion pizza.
Who wants a slice? Come back in a bit for the grand finale. :)

HARPER'S BIRTHDAY LUNCH

Welcome back. Here is the second, lunchtime gift to celebrate Harper Caroline's birthday...
This package is actually wrapped in New England Patriot's paper with an official napkin from Gillette Stadium. Where is what is inside...
This is a bologna and cheese sandwich with chips and another strawberry.
The sandwich contains two pieces of white bread, american cheese, swiss cheese, bologna, tomato and roman lettuce. How adorable!!! Come back in a bit and see what is for dinner.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARPER CAROLINE

Good morning everyone. Today is a very special day in my family...it is Harper Caroline's 3rd birthday. She is the cutest little girl in the world, so I wanted to really celebrate her day. Last month, I started on creating her 'birthday celebration' that starts out with this hand~lettering sign that I had sitting on top of a very big box I mailed her. (I still need practice!)
This is the tag that was on the first present in the box...
I guess I forgot to take of picture of the actually present wrapped. Sorry, but this is what was inside.
This was my first attempt at felt food. I love how adorable it all came out. Pancakes with butter and syrup, two strips of bacon, to fried eggs and a strawberry garnish. I hope she loves it all.
Come back a little later to see what's for lunch. :)

WELCOME TO THE WORLD NOVA

I want to share an adorable onsie and baby card that I just finished up for a special new baby.
How cute is this? I found it at Target with the wonder woman vinyl on it. I thought it might be a bit cuter if I put her name in the middle with matching glitter vinyl.
Here is the card that I made to go with the present.
How sweet.
This is the inside of the card. I am so excited for the new Mom and Dad and can't wait to meet Nova.

PIZZA

Hi folks, I am sure that some of you have been wondering where I have been. Well, I decided to leave my Design Team position with Little Scraps of Heaven on March 31st. I loved being a part of such a nice company but I wanted to work on some other projects. This is one of them...
For quite some time now I have wanted to 'play' with felt. I have a family member who is getting ready to turn 3 next month and she LOVES food. So I thought I would make her a whole days worth of 'fun felt food' to make her whole day a celebration. This is what is on the menu for dinner...PIZZA.
How adorable huh? I just spend a few minutes ironing the sauce and cheese. Now I am starving. 
Look at the peppers, pepperoni, mushrooms, and white onions. Yum. Thanks so much for looking. Come back and see what is on the menu for the rest of the day.

FLYING HIGH FELICIA

Hello everyone. Tomorrow my niece is flying to Portugal on a class trip. Geez, when I was in school we went to the zoo on our class trips. :)
I made this card for her. I am so excited for her. I did not have the courage then or even now to go abroad. I just know that she will have a great time.
I just hope she doesn't have such a great time that she doesn't come back :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOLIE

Hello folks. My good friend Yolie (from 'Just Yolie') had a birthday last week. I made her an adorable card and gift that finally arrived in California all the way from Massachusetts. I didn't want to ruin the surprise by posting it here until I knew she got it. Now, I can finally share it with you all. (Sorry for the camera angle.) Here is her card...

If you know Yolie, you know she is a big fan of planners. I thought this card was just perfect for her. The pattern is the 'happy planner bear' from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. 
I also made her this 'fat free' slice of birthday cake. It is actually made from a kitchen sponge and felt.
I tried to copy the exact font from her logo on her facebook page. I think I came close.
Here is a close up of some roses I did on the end.
I hope my good friend enjoyed her birthday. I am so glad she was born and is a part of my world.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GODMOTHER

Happiest birthday wishes to my God~Mother. To celebrate I made her this paper cake.
Each slice of cake is actually a box that contains chocolate. Hershey's has recently come out with a 'birthday line' that has fun festive wrappers and the kisses have fun celebration words on the flags.
This cake was a lot of work but how fun huh? This would be such a great idea if you host a party and then at the end, you could send everyone home with their own 'slice' to have later. Or you could easily just made a single slice to help celebrate someone's birthday as well.
Thank you so much for looking. If you see my God~mother today, wish her a happy one. :)
A big thank you to My Scrap Chick for the use of the pattern.

GETTING MY EARS PIERCED

Hi again everyone. I wanted to share another one page layout with you all. Look how special this is...
I love when little girls get their ears pierced and their Mom takes pictures(or video) to document such a special day. It is when these 'big girls' can now wear grown up pierced earring and it should be a big deal. 
Look how cute she is still on that stool and those earrings are adorable.
I love this gun. It is perfect!!! Thanks so much for looking.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Has anyone seen this movie yet? I am dying to but not sure my husband is willing to go with me :)
I made this one page layout of the Beauty and her Beast. Both patterns are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
Here is a close up of these couple. Belle is made from just plain cardstock but he is made from cardstock and mulberry paper.
Thanks so much for looking. If you have seen the movie, I hope you enjoyed it.
