Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop weekend!
If you're following the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Blog Hop in order, then you just arrived from Melissa's fabulous blog, Stamping With Melissa where she had some really great cupcake themed projects to share with you and inspire you in your paper crafting. I just loved her little cupcake treat holder - wasn't it adorable!?!?
My projects fall under the theme of a little girl's birthday. I am trying to decide just how I want to do everything for my oldest daughter's seventh birthday which is coming up. She doesn't really like pink, but every one of her little friends does, so I won't completely do her party without pink. The Sweet Pea DSP paper stack came in really handy for making these projects. I think that each little girl will have a different colored hat, door-hanger and wand, so these are just one version of them. The door-hanger will be hanging on the back of each girl's chair to designate her seat at the table with her very own monogram on it, and then she can take it home and hang it on her bedroom door.
Without further ado, here are my projects:
