It's All About Alicia!

Well, Alicia constantly THINKS "it's all about her" 90% of the time ... today it is!  Her 5th birthday is coming up and the countdown is on ... quite literally.  She keeps asking "how many more sleeps" so I decided instead of using the new "Decor Accents Date Keeper" (page 170 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalogue) to start the countdown until Halloween or Christmas we'd use it first to count down the days until her birthday.  This took me 5 minutes to put together - all I had to do was put a picture of her in the 3" x 3" window, stamp "Look Who's Turning 5" with Black Staz On ink on vellum paper and "wa-low" (as she says) - we have a countdown calendar.  This would make a great gift for a teacher or friend and at $13.95 very affordable!

My next project is her party invitation.  She wanted to go with a ladybug theme for her party so naturally we had to make a ladybug invitation. I saw a cute card designed by Lori Hennig (fellow SU Demonstrator) and tweeked it so the actual invitation slides into a little pouch in the back.  I used the large Scallop Circle Die for the Big Shot and various circle punches for the head and dots as well as the large oval punch for the antennae.

Have a fun day!
