Happy 1st Brthday Invites and Banner (PS DT Project)






Happy Friday everyone!! Today is a very special day for me... It's my daughters 1st Birthday!!! I can't believe she is already a year old.. Where does the time go?? Well, it is also the 1 year anniversary at Practical Scrappers this week.. So, to celebrate they are having 5 different challenges.. Each day will have a different prize that will be awarded at the end of the week. And for some extra fun, join our forum and join us for an online crop all weekend long!

So to create my projects, I used my Design Studio to weld the happy from the Just Because Cards cart, the flower & butterfly from the New Arrival cart, and the one is from the Sesame Street Font cart together... The stitches & the butterfly's face were made with a black marker and the flower's face is a stamp from the Close to my Heart set "Scrapbook Kids Faces and Hands".. On the invitations, I used a stamp for the birthday and embossed the background with the Happy Birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder.. On the banner, I cut some large butterflies and flowers from the New Arrival cart.. The birthday was cut from the Sesame Street Font cart and I used a black marker to make stitches on them as while.. To finish the banner, I used a some ribbon and a hole punch..

Challenges:
Pile it On- Butterflies, bugs, and bees
Paper Sundaes -stitching
The ABC Challenge - A is for August
Simon Says Challenge - Sing It Baby (Happy Birthday)
Stamp Something -Photo inspiration
Frosted Designs - Celebrate Life
