Guest Design for Decorate to Celebrate!

Thank you Rhonda and Amy from Decorate to Celebrate for inviting me to guest design for this week's challenge:  Kid-Themed Birthday Party!  Be sure and check out their fun challenge blog for all the details on the theme and prize.  I created a table decoration for a little girl's one-year-old circus birthday.
  I started out with a card that included the train car and the tiger.  I enlarged it and played around with it until I could use both the train car and the tiger.  The train cars are made from chipboard and the wheels are glued to wooden spools.  I looked through my stash and came up with a couple of other animals to use.
  (The zebra is an image from All Time Fashions.) 
  These were fun to do and actually came together pretty easily considering I wasn't sure if it would even work! 

I would like to send a thank you to The Ribbon Reel Challenge blog for selecting my Sweetie Pie card as their winning card for their last challenge and to Craft Junkie Too for featuring it on Friday!   Thank you, also, to Mary from Very Merry Vintage Style for featuring my bird and teacups card! 

And guess what?  I received a wonderful surprise in the mail!  It came from Rhonda of Decorate to Celebrate.  She sent me one of her famous mini albums. 

Gift from Rhonda: 
Isn't it fabulous?  Thank you, thank you, Rhonda, for such a sweet gift!

  1. OMGosh, Lori! These are amazing! I love the "vintage-ness" -- is that even a word? -- they remind me of some birthday cards my Grandma saved from the 30's & 40's.
