Attending My First Crop/Sneak Peek

Good evening bloggers,

Just finished packing for my first crop. I hope I got everything! The plan is to finish working on the black and coral wedding album, but I'm dragging the other along in case I need a color change. While I was down in the scrap cave (it's in my basement, far away from everyone and their iPods, iPads, and what have you), I decide to clean and organize. Then I decided to test out an idea for a birthday banner.

I've been seeing them everywhere on Etsy and other blogs. One of my BFFs daughter has a birthday coming up and I had been sending a scrapbook of the previous year in pictures. Sadly, I'm behind. So I decided to send something for the party since it will be the first with friends being invited.

It's not completely done, but here's a sneak peek;

Oops, sorry it's upside down. My iPhone 3G needs to be upgraded in the worse way. Her theme is "Pinkalicious". I'd never heard of it until then, thank goodness for Google. I still need to add some "sprinkles" and punch the holes for the ribbon.

I cut the cupcake and layers from Create-a-Critter at 5 inches. I didn't cut the face since it would be covered up by the letters. The 4 is cut at 3 1/2 inches and the "th" is cut at 1 1/4 inch. I used Sans Serif for the font. I wanted to use a darker shade of pink, but it was hard to read.

Check back for the finished product and the party favor I'm going to send as well.

Stay crafty
