We began with this adorable invitation from Big Day Invitations Etsy store. The owner was very speedy and accommodating as I requested a couple of changes from her original design.
The kids had a blast painting a canvas. Please forgive me for not posting too many photos of the girls as I did not get permission from their parents to do so.
I used some old Prima Fairy Flora papers that I had in my stash to create the watercolor mats on these frames. I also splattered some Glimmer Mist.
I also decided to bake the cake myself. I wanted it to look like a white canvas so the icing was very white and plain accentuated by colorful candles. Since the theme was art, I surprised the girls with six layers of different colors in the inside of the cake. Now, I don't regularly bake, so for me, this was a big deal! I followed this tutorial and must say, kind of felt very proud of myself when I heard the kids and moms wooing and ahhing as they got their slices :)
Lastly, a rare pic of my girl and I as I don't really like to be in front of the camera. I just cannot believe how fast time has passed, it seems just like yesterday when she was handed to me for the first time and now look at her! I'm so proud of how sweet and kind she has turned out to be.
I'll log off now before I start crying (or start think about having another one, LOL!) Thanks for your visit today.
