Birthday Party - #3

Happy third birthday to our granddaughter.  It was so much fun celebrating with her recently.  I used a lot of my cardmaking tools and supplies for some non-card projects. 

PJ Masks birthday banner.  I had never heard of them before we started planning the party - but I know them all now!  Bright primary colors are always a hit.

The annual chalkboard.  She has grown and developed so much over the last year.  And she is now a BIG SISTER!

Cupcakes made by the paternal grandma topped with decorations made by the maternal grandma (me).  We are so blessed to both be able to have such a big part in this sweet girl's life.

Thanks Grandma and Poppa! I love my present - clothes!  and a toy....

she had to take a break from opening presents to play 'fetch' with Daddy. 

Our annual photo - some day I won't be able to hold her on my hip for the birthday photo :-)

Photo booth props - although we never really did the photo booth.  She has been having fun playing with the masks since her party.

And we even had enough extra decorations to change the wreath from the snowflakes to a PJ Masks theme.

And here are some closeups - Gecko (green mask), Owlette (red mask) and Catboy (blue mask). I had a little help from Pinterest (printable PJ Masks circles) and my sister (starburst die-cuts since I do not have those).

Another perk of having all the card-making supplies - a ribbon to match any paper :-)

And here is another non-card project I completed lately.  A crib mobile for the new grandson.  I purchased the hardware on Amazon - however due to the design of his crib, the mobile had to be attached fairly low on the crib.  This may have to be moved to hang from the ceiling like his sissy's was.

I used an anchor punch, a sailboat stamp and a sailboat die to make a variety of designs in Night of Navy.  Whisper White and Marina Mist circles were used as bases - and a few of the white starbursts my sister provided for the birthday party decorations were used here also.

Introduced my granddaughter to stamping recently and bought her a set of Minion stamps made by Crayola.  The ink is clear but shows up as a dark blue on the 'magic paper'.  She was playing with these on her own, and realized she could put her finger on the ink pad and then press it on the paper.  She definitely has that creative gene!
