Birthdays, anyone?

Well you would think it was birthday weekend here with all these birthday posts on here today! We went to a birthday party for a little girl turning 3 this weekend. She had a butterfly party, so I added a butterfly to her card. I used Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Tempting Turqjoise on the colors. I also used the stamps Party Hearty, Polka Dots and Paisleys, and Flight of the Butterfly. Finally, to make the 3, I put glue all over a number 3 sticker, dipped it in lots of glitter, and THEN stuck it onto the card. (Can you guess that I tried the other way first? If you take the sticker off the backing and glitter gets on BOTH sides of the sticker, the chances are pretty slim that it's going to stick...don't ask me how I know that!)

So, here are a few pics of my own little birthday girl (yes, I know her birthday was in November...I'm finally getting caught up...little by little). The picture in this layout was one of my favorite pictures from her birthday party. This was after everyone left. It was just one of those sweet moments that happens almost every day...Toby tickling Halleigh...I just happened to catch it on camera! I used the Sweet Slumber DSP and the rub-ons/stamps from the level 3 hostess scrapbook and stamp set. They were terrific for birthday pictures! A little more of this paper from the hostess set. It was so cute for a birthday party page! And my favorite part was the lined paper that is perfect for journaling. I made some lazy gathering with the grey taffeta ribbon - all you have to do is use lots of glue dots (or a sewing machine if you're talented enough!)
Finally, a page I made using the colors of Halleigh's present from us. We found the Rose Petal Cottage at the consignment sale this was a great present for Halleigh. This was my other favorite picture of Halleigh from her party. Just sheer delight at the opportunity to play in her new birthday toy.

I just love your Cupcake layouts Valerie! They are sooo super cute. Good luck with the potty training. My little girl is about to turn 2 in a few months and I'm starting to think about it too. Hopefully she won't be like her brother who wasn't potty trained till 3! :)
