Happy Birthday, Taylor!!

It's Taylor's birthday and I've got a blast from the past with a twist for her. Was your shiny new Silhouette a little treat for your birthday, Taylor? Well...I created a little something so Taylor can play with her new toy using her own TE images from For the Love of Cupcakes!!



The cupcake and its liner and frosting together with the stand were all cut using my Silhouette SD, which made paper piecing a breeze. The frosting is then coated generously with layers of crystal effects and topped with leaves also cut with my Silhouette and a lovely half pearl. 'Happy Birthday' is from Extra Credit inked in Adirondack espresso. The cupcake itself is in SU melon mambo cardstock then embossed. I sponged the nestie oval frame with SU pink pirouette and melon mambo. Mmmm...I like that colour and thought it paired nicely with the American Crafts Romaine a la Carte patterned paper.



A few of Taylor's friends have gotten together to throw a little blog hop party:

Have a fabulous day, Taylor, and everyone stopping by!
