Happy Birthday Shirleys2Girls!!! You're Invited to the Party!

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Truffle

It's a Birthday Bash with Shirleys2Girls and you are invited! This is a post filled with LOTS of pictures as well as a chance for a little party favor, so get your noise makers, grab a cuppie & punch, and hokey pokey on over here.......

Let's start with your party invitation...... I used the new S2G image, Party Guests. It is so easy to use these fun digis while creating documents, too! I first inserted the picture into my document and then turned it into a watermark. This made it easy peasy to type the info right over the cute image! (actually our wonderful DT leader, Debbie created the invitation text. I just copy/pasted it right into my document - even easier!!)

Next comes your party hat.............


I printed the tempate out onto copy paper, added a few hearts punched from Basic Grey Bittersweet, threaded through some vintage seam tape, and then sparkled a few fruit punch stickle accents. oh yes, can't ever forget the Prima flower accent! (this was actually supposed to go in the next item, but it didn't fit!! grins!)

Now on to the party favor.........


You have heard of Christmas crackers - well this is a Birthday cracker! I used the same cute Party Guests image for the tag - perfect to add each guest's name on the back. You can't see the detail here, but I used metallic pens to give some sparkle. The paper again is Basic Grey Bittersweet, edged in some of my fun JoAnn's trim find. Next I took hot pink crepe paper and ruffled it, topping this with orange Primas dotted with fruit punch stickles. Empty toilet paper rolls were filled with the party invite from the beginning of the post & LOTS of fun goodies (some from S2G!!) before wrapping with tissue paper and tying with more vintage seam tape. The tag was loosely tied on with orange baker's twine.


Now if you would like a chance to win one of these birthday crackers, here is what you have to do:

  1. Play in the Twisted Thursday Challenge this week - Make a birthday invitation - Twist is to use the word Celebration/Party/Birthday somewhere in your creation. Be sure to link your creation to the S2G challenge site.
  2. Join the SNR and/or PCP S2G groups

  3. Invite a friend to participate in the TT Challenge and then THEY MUST link their creation. (you need to leave me a comment telling me the name of your friend.)

I will do a random drawing, and then BOTH YOU and YOUR FRIEND will win a birthday cracker!!!! :)

Please check out the rest of the DTs creations!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHIRLEYS2GIRLS!!!!
