Happy Birthday Bugaboo!!!

1st birthday 
I am so glad you are here for our Blog Hop!
You should have arrived here from  the oh so talented Owner and Artist  Jodie’s blog . If not, make sure you start at the
 
 
Today I get to share with you two “Birthday Projects”!  My first item are these great Cupcakes I found here and just knew they would be perfect for our blog hop.  She provided a very easy to understand tutorial to follow.  We wanted to also show you some great items that can be made and shared for some really reasonable prices.
My cupcakes use the image Storybook Queen to help create these cupcakes that look good enough to eat, however they are simply socks rolled up with a hair band  and a silicone cupcake holder.  These would be great for a spa party.
My card below  is made using one our favorite lines AKV Birthday.  I used some glitter paper I have had on hand added some stitching, a bow and a computer generated sentiment to complete it.
