Birthday Time

Hello everyone!  Well, we have lots of birthdays around this time of year and last month we had a combined party for our kids.  Miss 7 had a RAINBOW themed party and I had lots of fun making a few different party things for her - and of course, adding some rainbow coloured FWAB!  Here she is with my FWAB creations:

First up was the party hat.  This was my first time making one from scratch and I was quite surprised how EASY it was!!
I found a party hat template like this one (there are HEAPS if you google them!), printed it out and traced around it onto some bright rainbow coloured paper ...
It was easy to make up, I didn't even have to glue it!
Then ... time to decorate!
I used nearly every colour in my stash of Adhesive Pearls 100 packs  on here... they were just perfect for layering over the "7" thicker and for around the circle.
I also made a "7" badge for her to wear proudly on the day:
Again, I used my stash of Adhesive Pearls 100 packs to make the "7" thicker nice and colourful.

Talking about BIRTHDAYS, we are excited to have TWO new additions in our extended family over the coming months!!  Even though I won't know ahead of time whether they will be boys or girls, I still thought I would make up some cards in preparation of our new arrivals.  Such an exciting time!!

This boy one is using the Jasmine puffy flourish in Latte  and a gorgeous cream Elise flower.
And a girl card:
That's all from me for now!  Thanks for visiting!
Happy Scrapping :) :)
