The 3rd Birthday, the Underwater Party

What would you be if you lived under the sea? Would you be big or would you be small? Would you wish to be a jelly fish? What kind of fish do you want to be?

We celebrated our daughter's 3rd birthday yesterday with her friends.

We had a lot of fun decorating.

She made the jellyfish with some help from mommy.  I think it is great that she helped make the decorations for her birthday.  The jellies are made from some paper bowls and some stuff that reminds me of Chinese finger traps for the tentacles that I only found at the craft store because I was chasing the munchkin and she kept running down random isles.  She also had made most of her birthday invites.

I also added some decorations on top of our mantle.  I had to dig for some scrap blue fabric.  I didn't have any single pieces that would stretch all away across, so I had to kind of weave them together and make them look kind of like waves.  I also ran out of green streamers, so my plant was a little smaller then I was envisioning.  I do like how the paper plate fishy turned out.  I also made the little blue circle felt garland.  I had always wanted to make one.

It's kind of hard to tell from this photo, but the cake is actually made of three different blue shaded layers.  It's the first round birthday cake I've ever made.  This definitely was a turn your tonged blue and everything else kind of cake, but that's what the birthday girl requested.

There also was some fruit cup boats.  It is so hard to find healthy cute birthday snack ideas.

I made some very cute favors.  They are fishing poles and you can catch 3 fishes, a jelly, and a boot.  I plan on doing a more elaborate post on this later with patterns and things.

It was a great 3rd birthday.

Scrapbooking, Melt My Heart

  I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)   I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

Scrapbooking, Sunshine

  I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16 .  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling.     The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch

  I loved how the water color background turned out for my son's page so much, that I had to try it again.  This time, I thought I would make a two page layout for my daughter's book since it has been a very long time since I've tried one.   I wanted to scrap these pumpkin patch pictures from last year because we were just about to go to the pumpkin patch again and I thought they would help me get into the fall mood.  I just love fall, but the weather in the pacific northwest is so unpredictable this time of year.  You never know if there is going to be a sunny day to go pumpkin picking so you have to take advantage of one when it comes!   Scrap Our Stash had their Tic Tac Toe challenge again, so I thought I would give it a go.  I went right down the center and did 3 buttons, decorative pins, and wood veneers.  I scattered buttons randomly onto the page.  I used up the little joy pin from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had laying around still.  I also added a li
