Happy Birthday

 Hi ! I hope your having a great week! Last weekend we had Kinley's 1st birthday party and it was a blast! I didn't have a lot of time to make things, but I did make her hat and the little (one) banner on her highchair :-) See pictures below. I made her a card with a cute elephant set from Wplus. Same elephant on her hat, but I didn't have time to take a picture of it. She was so petite about digging into the cake lol...Here you have 20 people with cameras ready and she is just looking at the cake lol 1st she dipped her finger in it for a taste. Finally she warmed up to it :-)

 
 
This card has Ellen Hudson goodies on it. Julie Ebersole designed this stamp set called "Wish Big", water colored everything, super simple
 
 
 
Thanks for all your support on my Winnie and Walter posts! You girls are the best!!
 
This week it's very HOT in Redding.....Temps triple digits as far out as the next ten days...suppose to be 115 here on Friday :-(
I love it here....except the heat...that's just plain hot!
 
Hugs, Char

Oh my, Char - how darling and adorable your sweet Kinley is, with those bright eyes that must light up a room and spark smiles wherever she goes. Such a precious gem! The birthday hat and banner you made for her are totally marvelous; you have photos and memories to treasure of this milestone birthday. Love her 'cake' tasting process: a first wee lick of icing and then just diving right in. Love it! I remember when my niece and nephew were one; seems like only yesterday, but already, they're 5 and 3! Eeek..they grow up way, way too fast. Your hippo, birdie and balloon card: utterly fantastic. We're supposed to have some 'heat' settling into our Rocky Mountains small town, which I'm so not used to. Hot weather and I = not a good match. Then again, we so rarely have high temps that I won't complain *too* much *grin* Thanks immensely for your support over at W&W; means the world to me!

Hubby keeps wishing we could be back at Shasta Lake. Imagine the water is pretty low with the drought, but I'd definitely be in the water if I was you--LOL! We're even supposed to hit 100 & it isn't even July! Kinley is so adorable--pictures to treasure! I love your BD card, Char--cute & beautiful!
