HAPPY 2013

Happy New Year 2013
This is my first post of 2013 so I would like to wish you ALL not only the best of health and happiness, but a year that keeps your CREATIVE  juices flowing!!! I thought I would share some of the table decor that I put together for an intimate party of six at our home. The menu was HUGE and we were totally stuffed.
I really got into using my Cricut to produce some inexpensive black rosette topped with a clock turning midnight (Wall Decor & More..pg.66) . The Happy New Year phrase was cut out of shiny gold foil (used my Silhouette for this one) and I used some Stickles glitter on the stars..

The MOST fun project was the 4 layer intense dark chocolate cake that I put powdered sugar on  showing 2013. YES, I used my  Cricut numbers as a template and just sprinkled the numbers on.

Thanks for stopping by and if you would like to  swap buttons , please check out the left side bar. See ya right here!
