E's 2nd Birthday Party

I love my cameo, there is no hiding it. When I can make all the decorations for my children's birthday parties at a very low cost, I have more to spend on other things. So without further ado, I present Emma's Under the Sea Birthday Party.

 These were her invitations. Yes they are cricut whales, but I loved them too much!
Embroidery is my new adventure.  This is the first appliqued shirt I did. I think it turned out pretty good for a first try.
The birthday girl's banner!
Let me tell you, this banner was very difficult. I'm sure there is an easier way.  I cut half circles with a little tail..kind of a square half circle if that makes sense and glued them to a pennant shape. One of a kind, I'll never do this banner ever again!

Got the idea for the Octopus cupcakes from Family Circle magazine (I think).

Food cards made with the silhouette. A tutorial here.
For the amount of snow we got, it was a pretty good turn out. It was a cute little party for my cute little girl.

 Happy Birthday Sweet Emma.  I love you!
