Abigale's 1st Birthday Party

So Miss Abigale turned One Year Old last week. How did that happen?  Anyway, since I just had to incorporate papercrafting into her birthday party, I thought it would be perfect to share it on the blog.  Maybe someone else can get some inspiration, too!
Abigale's Birthday invite I created using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!

Flowers are made using heart hand held punch along with circle and scallop circle of her newborn pictures.

Boy Favors [No stamping and very simple. Frankly because I realized I had way more boys than I thought and I didn't think they wanted the prissy butterfly favor boxes anyway!]
 This was the handmade part of the favors [the rest is typical boy-bugs & a ball, girl- big ring and candy all around...and raisins [because sometime you have to be "that mom" a little bit at least.]  Used the Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix die because it cuts through fabric beautifully and quickly!
 The frilly girly boxes made using the Fancy Favor Box die for the Sizzix Big Shot from Stampin' Up. And the Beautiful Butterfly die as well.  Some I used an embossing folder on, too, for different looks and textures.
The butterfly looks wilted after washing and not sewing on properly but there really is a butterfly on her #1.  A better view from her lovely One Year Old Pictures, taken beautifully by the talented Karissa Barber of K.Barber Photography:
Love them.

"Death by Oreo" Cupcakes

Strawberry Cake with Vanilla Buttercream frosting. [Cupcake Toppers is what I am really showing here but who doesn't love a good cupcake picture?]
Peanut Butter Overload Cupcakes [Toppers were made using My Digital Studio, Scallop Circle punch, and Beautiful Wings Sizzlit.

Could have embellished this a lot more but frankly I ran out of time!

Happy Family after a great birthday party day!
