My sweet daughter turned 2 this week. She is a mischevious angel! For her birthday, I pick something that she loves to design the theme around. Last year it was Elmo, this year it's Flowers! She loves flowers. So, I started with her dress. My sister has a sewing business. Her site is http://www.satinstitchescustomclothing.blogspot.com/. I picked out the design and fabric for her dress and she made it for me. The colors in the dress are where I got the blue and pink from.
I wanted to be able to make everything myself. I have looked at the Cricut expressions for awhile and finally decided to purchase one. I made the cupcake toppers, banner, cupcake wrappers, and labels. I also planned on my purchases of papers and supplies when Hobby Lobby had things for 50% off. This helped with the cost.
