Barbara’s 50th Birthday Celebration ~ Day 3


So today is the last day & I have had so much fun! I truly wish I was on an island somewhere vacationing (by myself) & away from reality. I would have to take my Cricut & some supplies so I can sit out on the terrace & create. I’d have a chef to make my meals & a butler to get me anything I wanted & keep those Pina Coladas on a roll! HEY….a girl can dream! LOL!

So here’s a note from Barbara: This is the final day of our hop.  I would like to thank the lovely ladies in this hop for helping me celebrate my 50th Birthday with a Luau theme hop.  I would also like to thank the hoppers for joining us to celebrate my birthday.

If you have just joined the blog hop please be sure to check out the prior posts from Tuesday and Monday for the entire line up.  Still have a chance to win some blog candy.  I had a great time, and I am truly in awe of the talented ladies in this hop.

So without further ado, here is my final creation for this hop!
~Luau Themed Cupcake Wrapper~
The wrapper was made using SCAL, my Cricut & a plain cupcake wrapper I got from Michelle at ScrappingTable (that is where I bought my SCAL a year before the whole lawsuit fiasco). I added the Hibiscus flower I used in yesterday’s creation in the cupcake tower (also seen in this picture) in the center of the wrapper. I found a nice font on my computer & used it in SCAL. I “Un-grouped” the text & moved/angled each individual letter onto the cupcake wrapper & welded the text to the top of the wrapper. I cut it out on plain Turquoise cardstock from The Paper Studio. I glued a piece of Yellow Cardstock (also TPS) to the back of the wrapper to make the Hibiscus pop out of the wrapper. I inked the letters on top of the wrapper with “Pear Pizzazz” from Stampin Up. Then made some chocolate cupcakes, frosted with chocolate frosting, added sprinkles & TA-DA! Can’t go wrong with chocolate!
Barbara, as much as I wish I could send you the cupcakes I made….there was someone else who enjoyed them for you….my 3 year old son Keifer!
How about that chomp into the cupcake! He LOVES cupcakes & this was right up his alley…PLUS it was CHOCOLATE!
Here is another picture of the cupcake wrapper:
Now, hop on over to Gina, and see the beautiful creations she has made for the hop.
