Well Charlotte's first birthday was almost a month ago already!!!! My gosh how time FLIES!
This was my favorite photo of the day of her! I got so emotional as I brought her that cupcake...I couldn't believe she was one already. I'm sure it is going to be like that every year!
This big chipboard #1 I have had in my stash for a LONG time, and I always knew I was going to use it for ny child's first birthday!
I covered it with some Bella Blvd paper and wrapped some ribbon and some beaded wire around it.
I was inspired to make the cupcake by this weeks Candy Shoppe Designs challenge (see previous post). I cut a cupcake shape out of chipboard, pleated some paper for the liner, and then twisted some tulle for the frosting. I added some tiny beads for sprinkles and a button for a cherry!
For the banner, I used some scraps of fabric, cut into pennant shapes, and glued some ric rac to the top to hold them together.
I was inspired by the color combo at The Color Room and the sketch that goes with it!
I also did this for the challenge this week at Snobby Walrus to use:
-buttons (on the cupcake)
-a handmade embellishment (the cupcake)
-polka dot patterned paper (pleated under the #1)
-journaling (strips under the photo)
-color photo(s) (obvious)
I have a lot more birthday photos to scrap, so be on the look out! :)
If you find a unique idea on my blog, use one of my sketches, scraplift a page, create something from a tutorial, or Pin a project, please give credit where credit is due and I will be sure to do the same for you!
