Ladybug Birthday

My little granddaughter just turned two on Friday the 27th! On Sunday my daughter and I had a ladybug themed birthday party for her. I wanted to share the card I made for her and some of the decor items I created. It really turned out to be a cute party and she had so much fun!!!!

For the card I used a darling digital image from A Day For Daisies called Saying Hello. If you haven't checked out all the darling images they have over at A Day For Daisies I highly recommend you stop by and look, you won't be disappointed. Furthermore they are one of the sponsors of Link Up For Pink!!

I made a banner for her party using both my Cameo and my Cricut. For the letters I used the Cuttin Up cartridge and the ladybug was cut with the Walk In My Garden cartridge. I used Silhouette Studio for the scalloped circles.

For her favors we found these cute buckets at Target for $1 each! I cut out circles in black vinyl with my Cameo and attached them to the buckets.

 One of the goodies in the bucket were these sunglasses, again found at Traget for $1 each. I had these cute ladybug brads that I simply snipped the tongs off of and then glued them to the sunglasses with some E6000 glue.

I created various labels using some round 3/4" labels by Avery and stuck them to the bottom of Hershey Kisses.

For the bag toppers I found a free printable on line that had all kinds of cute ladybug themed goodies!

I used the same set of printables to make these straps for the cups, which we purchased at the Dollar Store..

I made these picks, to be used among fruit skewers, with cuts from my Cameo and my Cricut. 

Last, but not least, I made these appetizers with a "Taste Of Home" recipe I found.

And.... Here is my little bug!!!!

Thanks for taking a peek!!!!
