A Fairy Special Birthday Party

So sorry if you were expecting more posts from me recently.  McKenzie and I have been working diligently on finishing up some projects and decor for her upcoming Sweet 16 Party in August.  In the last week, we mostly did a lot of outside yard work, but it was a very rewarding week as we were able to:

1 ~ finish up her invitations (used a free fairy image from google that she chose, copy and pasted it to a word doc, added the text and mushroom clip art, and voila....finito)

2 ~ create a card box (used a cardboard box, covered in inverted Christmas wrapping paper, adhered more of another fairy image my dd loved, that we printed on cardstock and fussy cut, stamped images from my inque boutique and inkadinkado clear stamps - trees and swirls and butterfly, cut the word CARDS from Jasmine Cricut Cart for the top of the box, brushed on some Studio G ink and hand-painted details on the front image using acrylic paints)

3 ~ make her Fairy Headdress (used pine garland, wired faux branch, easter ribbon, flowers from stash and new paper flowers I won from Bearly Mine Crafts via the I Am Roses giveaway)

4 ~ decorate a glass bottle as a centerpiece using the matching fairy image, Easter ribbon, and flowers from my stash.

(We are also going to be able to use the cupcake 2-Tier Tray as a Serving Dish for the Party . . . woop woop!)

I am so super excited to be able to share these projects with all of my followers as well as link up to some challenges.

These projects are also being linked to the You Had Me At Craft blog, for the Made It Myself Monday Link Up Party as my first of 3 projects eligible to link up.

Thank you for being so patient with me during my busy summer and being a faithful follower.
