I've been in Birthday mode this month - did a birthday gift project, made a birthday mini-album (will post that next month) for MCS and yesterday made a birthday cake (paper, of course). I made this for my daughter's birthday, can't believe she'll be 8 tomorrow!!!!!

I used three wooden round boxes and covered them with papers printed from this fun, girly kit by Manda at SSD. I added buttons, ribbon, felt ric rac, flowers, some clear sequins and a birthday candle. I put little gifts in each box: earrings, bracelet and a gift card. We got her a Wii last week so this is just a little something extra :)

What have YOU been working on lately? I'd love to know - if you get a chance leave me a comment to link me up to your blog or gallery so I can check it out :)

Happy Weekend!



Waooo!!! this "cake" is awsome!!! congratulations, I love to see your works.
Hugs from Panama.

Please tell your DD Happy Birthday! Doesn't the time go by so quickly? Just be prepared, the year of the 8, begins the independent stage.

Your cake is adorable, and I also love the "softies" your creating. You'll have to let me know when you open up an Esty store. wink!
