Nicole and Meighen's Bday/ Bloggerversary Bash

Hi everyone! 
Welcome to Nicole and Meighen's Bday/ Bloggerversary Bash Blog Hop!

Photobucket

If you arrived here from Jessica's blog, then you are in the right spot!  If you just stopped by for a visit, click here to start at the beginning.  I am so excited to be included in this hop.  All of the designers are super talented so you are sure to be inspired and there will even be some BLOG CANDY along the way!  Nicole and Meighen asked us to make holiday inspired birthday project.  My twins were born on May 5 so I chose Cinco de Mayo as my holiday.  I have two projects to share with you today.

I was inspired by Jingle to alter a brown paper bag. We always have a piñata at our birthday parties and this donkey from the Birthday Bash cartridge looks just like one.

These colorful papers are from Martha Stewart.  I trimmed the bag down to 9" tall and used my MS doiley lace punch on the top edge. I cut the blue paper at 5-1/2"h x 4-1/2"w and the striped paper at 2"h x 4-1/2".  I  used my ATG gun to ahere the striped layer behind the blue layer leaving 1-1/2" showing. I cut the donkey at 3.75" and added some felt ric rac from my stash.  These would be a great way for the kids to take home the goodies they get from the piñata.

For my second project, I used the Birthday Bash to make a quick banner.  The pre-designed banners on this cart go together really fast.  I cut the banner at 5.09" and the letters at 3.75".  I had a hard time getting pictures of my banner....it looks better in person!

The donkey and monkey are both cut at 3.75
Now for some Blog Candy!!!! 



I will draw a winner on Monday evening.  All you have to do is become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post. 

Your next stop is Lisa....you are going to LOVE her project!
