**Update to my post Such sad news: It's been a long month and a half but my daughter seems to be doing well but there are some of the girls who were much closer to them who continue to have a difficult time dealing with the loss. The team as a whole has been doing well considering, some days better than others. The team has been so busy with fundraising for the families including a Faculty vs. Girls soccer game. Boy did those teachers want to win! But they didn't ;) Thanks to all who dropped me a line of concern and encouragement...it's very heartwarming and appreciated :) ***
Now...on a much happier note my son Niko turned 2 this week. He absolutely loves
Thomas the Tank so that was the theme this year. Here are some of decorations I made.
The invitation, in hindsight I should have done the lettering in black but that's ok. Thomas pic
is a JPG I found online. The blue glitter CS is from Michaels 12x12 sheet.
I used foam rectangles for dimension. I found the foam at the recycling place I go to. I cut them in half,
one side had adhesive just peel the paper off. The other side is smooth so I glued it to the paper.
So this is my Ahh haa moment :) 1st pic is a cupcake wrapper, I then cut out Thomas and used it as the center of the 2 1/2 " scalloped circle layered on the black 2 3/4" now this circle fits perfectly on top of these plastic containers from Walamart's own brand of baby food. There is a date stamp on the outside but it wipes off with a Clorox wipe.
And yes...I did separate the colors of M+M's! LOL!! Hey I'm a stickler for details :)
So now I have orange, green and brown for Halloween projects!
These are packs of Trident gum, Thomas scrapbook paper, 1" scalloped circle and stamp by Verve.
Party hat is a free SVG from SVGcuts.com. I used a piece of 12x12 dotted CS and filled the hat on the page (it was a little big for him) , #2 is a "Varsity" font cut with MTC and the Cricut.
And lastly, his birthday sign which he loved. I used the Street Sign cartridge cut at 6" and the 2 cut at 8". Thomas is a MTC file found in the gallery. I tweaked it some as it had way too many little pieces so I made them more solid. Thomas is cut at 12". And there are two holes punched in the top corners that I had balloons tied to. So that's it for the Thomas birthday...any questions let me know! Thanks for stopping by!
