Let's Party

That is our theme this week at The Cuttlebug Spot and what a fitting time - we have had the holidays and then started off the year with birthdays for my Mother-in-law, a nephew and then in a couple weeks my baby girl will be 18 along with my nephew celebrating his birthday the same day Cait turns 18!!! We get a little reprieve then til the end of March when it is my darlin' hubby's birthday!!!

I chose to make a super fun pinwheel for my party favor this week. Don't you just remember growing up playing with these and having so much fun with such a simple toy? Those were definitely amazing days when life was so much simpler! I used papers from my Honey I'm Home kit at Scrapbooking Deals 4 U and my nesties to cut out 4 cardstock scalloped circles and then 2 patterned paper circles. I embossed the cardstock circles then cut both the scalloped and patterned paper circles in half and assembled as shown! In addition I threw together one of the cute sour cream containers just to use up the last piece of that paper!!




If you are in the mood to "party" and make some favors please share with us by stoppin' by at The Cuttlebug Spot and linking up to our challenge!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and I hope you have had a scrappy start to your New Year!!! More to come from me hopefully this week if I get some time away from work!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
