Ava by Modkid......Finally Finnished

I bought this pattern (Ava by Modkid) back in October and I couldn't wait to make it. Sadly it has taken me this long to get around to finishing it but it was really fun to do. I used Michael Millers duo sasha toffee floral and teal dumb dot.

It's still cold here in Utah so I put a long sleeve white shirt under it. Then paired it with dark skinny jeans and black flats.
Oh, add no outfit is complete without a bow. Am I right? :) So, luckily I had the perfect orange flower (given to me by a dear friend) that I was able to add a few crystals and an alligator clip too. Helping to make a great finished look.

Fancy Key

Here is a simple way to add some *BLING* to your key ring without a whole lot of trouble.
It's also a great way to add a little bit of personality to your favorite key.

Start out with a plain and boring key.
Get out your favorite color of swarovski crystals (s20) and your GOOP glue.

Add a little bit of glue to each crystal using a pin.
Place the crystals where you want it on the key and let dry for 4-6 hours.

It doesn't get much easier than that!

Birthday Party

My daughter just turned 4 yesterday! Here are a few pictures from the birthday party.

The BEST cake in the world.... Red Velvet (made from a box:)) with almond butter whipped cream frosting......... sooo yummy!!
Want the recipe? Click HERE I added just a little bit of powdered sugar to make it a little thicker and to give it a sweeter taste.
Oh, and I also filled the cupcakes with 1 1/2 C marshmallow creme and 1/2 C butter that was blended together.
So good you'll want two!!
Cupcakes are topped with Strawberry Whoppers.

Surprisingly all these decorations only cost me $10!! Crazy I know! It helped that I had most of the supplies already. The only thing I had to buy was paper for the hanging chandelier.
The pom poms where made from tissue paper (left over from Christmas), I used my friends Cricut machine (which I'm in love with and I ended up buying one for my self:)) to cut all the letters for the banner, and the party favors (crayon cozys) were used from my stash of felt and ribbon down in my basement. These were time consuming projects but super fun to make.
Want the tutorial on how to make the crayon cozys check it out HERE or HERE!

The birthday girl, her sweet sister and her adorable cousins enjoying the yummy cupcakes.
