Happy Birthday Felipe!!!

My oldest son's birthday is on Wednesday, I can't believe he is going to be 12!!!!!!

We are starting to celebrate today by having a few friends over for breakfast and heading over to the new water park afterwards.

He is not fond of cakes (even though he wants one for Saturday) so this morning I went to the donut shop, got some sweet treats and prepare this donut-tower-cake for him. He was sooo excited when he woke up and saw it. :)

Do you see these cute blocks and party tags???? I went to The Little Blue House and created the blocks and some tags. These tags, Felipe and I made together.  They are soooo cute and you can change the tags with the Seasons. Go and check out their website.

The Lone Star

I went to The Little Blue House last week after the holiday weekend and they had a great sale.  All their Patriotic supplies were 30% off.  I just went to get some ink and end up buying supplies to make one of their projects at home: the "Metallicious Domed Star".  The ladies at the LBH are awesome, full of tallent and very fun to be around. Love them!!

To start, you will need a cardboard star, some patterned paper, metalic foil sheets, glue and red tape. The only tools needed are a paper cutter and your Cuttlebug with your choice envelope.

Ink the edges of the cardboard star so they show dark. Texture your foil with the cuttlebug and file it to bring up the silver color. Use red tape to glue the foil to the star.

Happy B day Patrice!!!

Yesterday was my friend Patrice's birthday.  I decided to do a "fancy fold card" for her. I got inspired by Mae Collins,  She has a great tutorial on her site. 

My papers are from Creative Memories and my stamp is a Magnolia Stamp colored with Copics.

The sentiment stamp is from "The Stamps of Life" by Stephanie Barnard.
