..this just a few weeks ago. Time goes by so fast, doesn't it?
Anyway, since everbody's schedules are soooo crazy, we have a party at my mom's for all three March birthdays - E, J and my brother M (J and M's birthdays are later in the month).
Because we didn't do a big themed birthday party for each kid, I decided to make a few cupcake toppers to make them feel more like it was their own celebration. E kept changing her mind, but finally decided she wanted Belle, J wanted Mario, and I decided to make my brother an Arkansas Razorback cupcake topper. Keep in mind that I am NOT a computer whiz so this took a little while to figure out.
I found a picture on google images and saved it to my computer. Then I resized it in Paint. Then I copied and pasted it to a Word document and printed it out. Then, because I don't have one of those fancy punches, I traced a circle around the image.
Then, I traced a slightly bigger circle on scrapbook paper, cut them out with pinking shears and glued them together.
Then I hot glued the whole thing on Craft Sticks that I got at Wal-Mart for $.97. When it was time for cupcakes, I stuck them on top.
J looooved his Mario cupcake.
E REFUSED to blow out her candle,
but she DID love her Belle cupcake topper.
We all had a wonderful time at the party. Mom cooked so the food was delicious as always. It was a wonderful day with the family.
What did y'all do this weekend?
