Decorate To Celebrate: Challenge #9 -- Baby Birthday Party!! :)

Welcome to another WONDERFUL Wednesday!! :)  I would like to welcome my newest followers -- I am so thrilled and honored that you are here!!  Today is one of my favorite CHALLENGE DAYS....  So let's get to that!! :)

It's the start of Challenge #9 at the Decorate To Celebrate!! Challenge Blog!!  The theme for this challenge is BABY BIRTHDAY!!  That means you can submit ANY decoration or party supply for a BIRTHDAY themed party for a BABY (no cards or layouts, just decorations and supplies, please)!!  :)  The fabulous designers this week have some GREAT inspiration for you -- And I can't WAIT to see what YOU create too!! :)

Here's what I made to inspire ya....
For as long as I can remember, Elmo has been "all that" for Birthday Parties...   I just love this fun little guy, tickled or not!! :)  And so, I decided to make a bright and cheerful yard sign to direct the party guests to the right location for the party -- I used the Elmo's Party Cricut Cartridge exclusively for both of these projects -- I just love that EVERYTHING you need to create so many FUN decorations and party supplies can be found on just ONE cartridge!!  Elmo and his crayon were cut at "fit-to-page" which made him about 11.5" high!! 
After using my white Signo pen to add some faux stitching all around Elmo, I also added the blue squiggly arrow by hand-trimming a piece of cardstock that matched the blue crayon...  I simply LOVE how Elmo turned out!! :)
The "Brea's Party" was cut at 5.5" using the font and font shadow features on the Elmo's Party Cricut Cartridge.  I also used my white Signo pen to add some faux stitching to the letters -- It really made the letters POP...
These long, thin gift bags would make perfect treat bags too -- How fun for each party guest to leave with their very own Elmo bag!!  I thought each guests name could be added quickly and easily with my white pen...  Don't ya just LOVE Elmo???  :)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my inspiration for a Birthday-Themed Party for Baby!!  I'm looking forward to seeing what YOU submit for the challenge now...

Now it's YOUR turn!!  Show us what you've got!! :)  Link up your NEW decorations or party supplies for a BIRTHDAY THEMED party for BABY at the Decorate To Celebrate!! Challenge Blog...

I remember when the tickle me Elmo first came out, I wanted one so badly (sadly, never did get one). You did an awesome job with the banner, but those treat bags are FABULOUS. What a cute way to dress them up.
Thanks for inviting me again this week to guest design.
Love and Hugs
I would be honored if you came to see my blog here
