Barbie Birthday Party Recipes and Tutorial Video Links

***Update-Links have been fixed***

So my kids keep growing and no matter how much I tell them to stop it just keeps happening.So my beautiful daughter just turned 7, still can't believe it. Well we had her birthday party at the park and decided it would be Barbie themed. Mostly because last year my store (work at Michaels) had a great sale on a ton of Barbie stuff so I called up my daughter and said well how about Barbie for your next Birthday.And if you have followed my blog for a bit...and thank you so much for those of you that do...you know I plan my parties at least 6 months in advance.Does not mean I actually get started on them that far but I do plan them...lol.

So anywho...here is what I came up with.
Well pretty much all the decorations were made by hand with the help of the Silhouette Cameo and Supplies from Michaels.
Love using the Cameo to create all the cuts I needed.
I made this rosette using an EK Success Boarder Punch
And created a Barbie Silhouette that using throughout the party.
The banner was made easily by just layering two colors of card-stock and used the boarder punch on the bottom of the black layer only.
And corner rounded the top edges of both pieces of card-stock.
The letters were cut on the Cameo.
The bags behind this long cute vase of flowers also have a little Barbie Silhouette on the fronts.
The bags were a fantastic buy from Goodwill years ago.
I used them during my daughters Hello Party.

Little Cupcake Layout

So I signed up my daughter and my mother in a cupcake decorating class. They both loved it.
So much so that i get calls while at work (at Michaels) to pick up more icing so they can practice more.

She got a certificate!

I used the sketch from DCWV's March Stackaholic challenge. They should be putting out a new challenge tomorrow. I used the Honey Chic Stack from DCWV and my Cricut.

So just thought I would share.
I be posting my daughters birthday party pics and share some tutorials on how I made some of the decorations and an hour or so.
