Paisley's Party

So today we're celebrating Paisley's 8th Birthday. I'm sharing the card I made her today, and tomorrow I'll be sharing her current picture and her birth picture as I've done with the other kiddos this year. She's having a Movie/Popcorn themed birthday and we'll be watching the Justin Beiber Movie :) I wanted to carry that theme into her card - here are the favors for the party - not yet filled with their goodies - So I thought - a cup of popcorn. I just mimicked the cup design, and the popcorn is made with the top of our SU Cupcake punch, sponged with so saffron. I can't take credit for that at all - my inspiration totally came from Lorri Heiling here - check out the great things she did. So I just used the ideas from her projects to add this cup of popcorn to the front of the card - And then used her movie reel strip idea to add the inside message to Paisley's card - it's all popped up on dimensionals so she can hear Gramma singing "Happy Birthday" to her better on this recordable card from SU.
I'm really happy with how it all turned out. So much so, that I'm going to try and do a scrapbook spreadsheet using these same ideas for my Scrappy Stamp Camp in June. Watch for more on that.
