Baptism banner and then some

Hello again!  I'm on a roll here.  Three days in a row of posting.  I must admit...I wrote them all the same day and scheduled them all on different days.  I was taking advantage of my free time.  It's hard to come by these days.  Anyhow,  I had never done a baptism theme so when someone approached me with it I was thrilled at the new challenge.  I'm also very fond of the person who asked me.  She was my son's first teacher and I owe some of his achievements to her.  So, when she asked I quickly jumped at the chance to help.  I made cupcake toppers, wrappers, invitations and a banner.   Here are a few pics!!  I took them at different locations so the lighting does not look the same but everything matched.

I love these invites!!  I will say that I did not do all of this.
I only take credit for the writing and assembling of it.

Designed these on Gimp

This banner was much longer than this.  It said Sophia's Baptism

LOVE THIS CROSS!  I used the same image from the toppers and cut it
out and shadowed it with my Silhouette.  For the scallops I used my Imagine

I used the Cupcake Wrappers cartridge for these cuties!!  
Have a great day!

Mr. and Mrs. Mouse!!! Gotta love them

Here are a couple of Disney themed parties I had  during this busy holiday season.  I first had 2 Minnie Mouse centerpieces, tags, and food labels....someone saw these at that party and ordered 4 more centerpieces, cupcake wrappers, tags and food labels.  My cricut was my savior!  Thank God for the Mickey and Friends cricut cartridge.  The base on all the center pieces were 8".  I first coated it with primer then painted them blue or red.  I used the giant lollipop sticks to hold the Disney elements.  For the tags I cut them large enough to fit a 1.5" label on them and personalized them using my GIMP software.  I also used my Silhouette for the Disney font.  Made 40 double layered polka dot cupcake wrappers using the  Cupcake Wrappers cricut cartridge too. Thanks to Cricut, Silhouette and my Gimp software!  Here are a few pics!  Enjoy!
