Hello Kitty Birthday Challenge

June 26, 2012 Rosie 3 Comments

Greetings Fellow Crafters,
My baby girl will be celebrating  her 19th Birthday on July 18, 2012. With summer being here and kids out of school I know it's hard for many to commit to Blog Hops.

I seriously thought we had our last birthday for last year but she asked her daddy if we were going to have another party and he couldn't say no, LOL.

For one she is the baby of the family and she has done so well with school. I'm very proud of her; she graduated high school at 16.  It took a lot of hard work and determination to complete this task. Ruth gave up two summers and went to night school, even when the counselors told her it was not possible. What they didn't understand is you don't tell a young determined teenager she can't do something.

She then went straight to college again, even going in the summer. She has big dreams and we want to make sure she accomplishes everything she wants to do in life.  This summer we made her take a break. She has been non-stop since 16. At first, she was not happy about it but now she is enjoying her youth and her summer. Sleeping in, hanging out, and just being a teen. 

So with all  this being said I would appreciate if the crafty world would join me and wish her a Happy 19th Birthday and if you submit a project via Linky we have several prizes lined up.  If I get more sponsors I will add them as I recieve confirmation.

I saw this idea on another blog and changed it up a bit. I fell in love with these favors.  My daughter and I made 20 of these for my cousin's baby shower. The pink and black zebra print were the theme of the baby shower. I wish  had remembered to take photos of her other decorations they were awesome!

Favor container: Toilet Paper Roll cut in half
Tulle- cut to size, from Hobby Lobby

We put Hershey Kisses in each favor holder (fits about 6) the Hershey Kisses bottoms are from http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com You can find other Hershey Kiss bottoms for other occasions.
This is the cake my other cousin made for the baby shower! She makes awesome cakes.


For The Birthday Boy

Would you believe I made this gift card holder out of a toilet paper roll? It's a very simple one because boys are so hard to decorate for. We have been experimenting with recycling household items and magically turning them into cute crafts. Did you know toilet paper rolls come in all different sizes?

Toilet Paper Roll
Paper- from stash cut to size of toilet paper roll
Brad- from stash to close
Stamp- Jaded Blossom's Make a Wish
