Happy 7th Birthday - Polkadoodles Crafting

Wow what a really special post this is
Polkadoodles has turned 7 this month- How amazing is that!
I have been with them for the last few years and I so enjoy being part of the DT I feel so lucky.
We get to work with the most amazing images and products
So of course our Challenge this time is Birthdays

So I really wanted to celebrate this Birthday by making something special
Maybe a large cake?
I cut the cake on my portrait 
and decorated using Winnie Fruit Punch and  Lavender Tea
It was hard to take a photo but the butterflies printed onto acetate just jump of the cake.
But Alas........ The cake itself was not enough - It showed none of the pretty papers
Sooooooo what better than to have cake with a cup of tea
Inserts Tea cup and Tea Pot (both again cut on my portrait)
I used the lovely Butterfly paper to decorate (can you see the theme here) From Winnie Sugar Sprinkles
I then made some little cup cakes, just used pink and white card , the sprinkles are Liquid Pearls - Finished off with some fruit from Winnie Fruit Punch.

It was at this point things really took over as I popped them on my kitchen side to take photo's , I was pleased with it but........ No ice cream , Definatly no 7th party can be without Ice Cream, what a sin!!
This was all getting rather large now so it was time to move plans and the party now ended up being a garden party - much more room to make a few more fun things.
So here we have the Ice cream man (now he is actually the Lollipop Man from Work & Play 12 - he is a brilliant Multi- Tasker)
and 
Winnie make a list from Winnie Fruit Punch ( I just swapped her pencil for an ice cream)

Then I spotted it ........... It would sit perfectly in my garden party
Everyone Loves some Popcorn (except I did'nt have any - so I swapped the popcorn for mini mallows - one for the cart two for me , you get the idea)
This time using another charater from Work and Play 12 - Fast Food (I just snipped the straw from his drink and cut away his background)

Okay Party almost complete ......hmmmmmm need something for entertainment ......
Of course the Dinousel !!!

This time using animals from Sticks and Bones collection and 
the image - Riding High
also used a few of my Granddaughters straws ...sssshhhhhhh
Party almost complete - Just to add a little (actually quite big) bunting  made from 
Elements - Winston



And of course to invite along a few guests so others you will spot in the slide show below but not in above photos are
Work and Play 12 - Barista x 2 (one with dark hair other with blonde)



So .... Thank you for stopping by I hope you enjoyed your visit to the party please help yourselves to a slice of cake
