It's a Party Blog Hop!!

Hello, welcome to Joy's Life  IT'S A PARTY BLOG HOP!!
If you have just come over from the super talented Laura's blog, then you are in the right place!!  If you just happened to stop by today and would like to join in on the fun, please head over to Joy's Life and begin the hop there!

My DD just turned 11 last week, so it was absolutely perfect timing for a party themed hop! :)

  We went with a super sweet cupcake theme and here are some of the decorations. :)

The first thing I made was the banner:

This was created using my Imagine and CCR. For the HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  I used Birthday Bash for the font, and for the patterns, I used Bubblegum Stripes, Blast Off, Baby Boutique and Enjoy the Seasons.  The cupcake images are from Better Together.  (I used several of the cupcake images throughout the house for the party.)


Since my DD didn't want a big party, we didn't actually have party favors... but if we did, I would have made something like this:

  I had a cute acrylic pillow box that that Joy had sent me and I thought it would be so fun to use. (these can be purchased at Joy's Life)  The cupcake image is printed on printable vinyl and the sentiment is stamped with Staz On ink using a stamp from Joy's Life new releases TAG YOUR IT #1.  

A fun way to make sure kids don't lose their cups or use someone elses, is to personalize them.  


I kept with the same cupcake image,  then used black vinyl for the name using the Cricut Alphabet font.  Pretty easy peasy really!!If you would like to learn more about using vinyl you can purchase Joy's Vinylology DVD right here.

Now, for the fun part of the hop..... the GIVEAWAY!!!  Woo Hoo!
