Hopefully by now you have beautiful weather where you are and are ready for some spring projects!
I have been so inspried by Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland! I was thinking about this whole "Alice in Wonderland" theme for a birthday party! One of my favorite chapters in Lewis Carrolls "Alice in Wonderland" book is the one where Alice goes to the "very merry UNbirthday" tea party with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the church mouse. Then I thought why not throw a party now? What a fun surprize for the kids! Shhh... don't tell the kids, I have alot of planning to do!
I made this banner with this theme in mind!
Here are some close ups!
I used two banners to make this project, the Birthday Banner
and Acrylic Large Banner
. I wanted this to be bright, cheery and fun! I used papers from GCD Studios Homespun Chic Collection by Melody Ross. I thought this idea would be so fun, perfect for a birthday (or un birthday!) party! I am so glad I save all my extra scraps when I create a layout!
The stamped images are from Clear Art Stamps. The flowers are coffee filters, punched with a scalloped circle punch and sprayed with a little Glimmer Mist. I ran all of the acrylic pieces through my Cuttlebug and inked the pieces with Staz On Ink in Cherry Pink! I used border punches by Martha Stewart for the paper edges.
Aren't the images fun for a party? I am thinking some balloons to match the colors in the papers!!
Does anybody know where I can find some really big tea cups?
Well I hope you are inspired to do your own project! Maybe you can throw an "unbirthday party"!
If you do I would love to see your pics! Link it to me here or on my blog http://letsembellish.blogspot.com !
Oh and here's wishing you a very merry unbirthday!
How cute is that? Love it! So pretty!
