Guest Designer at Decorate To Celebrate!

I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for the challenge blog Decorate to Celebrate!
The theme for this challenge is 'Birthday Party (for an adult)' and they accept any party decorations in the challenge. It continues until July 12th, so be sure to head over there.

So, I will tell you a little about my pie banner:) I always get pies for my birthday (it is in August so you can bet I will be getting another pie;)What better way to spruce up any sweets than a little banner! I used small sized bamboo skewers, and attached the banner with twine. To make the pennants, fold a 2 inch circle in half and apply glue after you have folded over the string.

Thank you to Decorate to Celebrate for letting me join you all in this challenge!

What better place to get married than Waikiki?! My sister looked adorable, and everything turned out so cute and sweet:) I think I might just have to do up a whole album for her.
PS- A fun little surprise coming tomorrow!

Summer Sweetness

Whew. I don't even know where to start to catch up on things! I do have a stack of layouts, and a few other fun crafts just sitting here to be photoed. But it won't be happening for a little while. I will be attending my sister's wedding (just me, no kiddos this round) and hanging with my family. So, for now have a great week, and I'll be back soon with lots of pretties :)

Birthday Beach Style

My in-laws graciously hosted the whole family for Audrey's birthday, it was wonderful! Talk about stress free for me:)
Cupcake toppers and custom tag graphics are from Pluff Mudd Studio. She did such a great job in helping me craft for the party.
I took a few beach buckets from Micheal's (they were spring ones on clearance for a dollar) and played around with cutting vinyl. Not too hard to master, you just never know what you are getting yourself into when trying something new!

Save Your Stars

 This grad card was in the May issue of Cards magazine.

I had been itching to cut out some stars, but didn't really have any summer themed photos, so I went to some Christmas pictures. Then I saved my stars...And made a birthday tag with the perfect embellishment!

A Crafty Go Lucky Sketch

I never quite know what to do with one vertical photo, and one horizontal photo. I trimmed the top picture to make it a little more square and feel more balanced. Who doesn't need their goggles when bike riding?!

Cricut Storage

I just have this thing for having all my booklets and overlays together...But honestly do not have the room to have mountains of Cricut boxes stacked up everywhere. I invested in the Scrap Caddy system, and have been really pleased with it. I can easily pull out books, plus I like the idea of cartridges being visible so I can find them easily. I still kept the Cricut boxes, but they are headed for the attic!
