It's so hard to believe that this little peanut is turning 5 today! I remember Dave and I driving Jessica over to the hospital, which was an hour away in the wee early morning hours and it was Northern Maine's worst snowstorm that I can ever recall. Two days later this photo was taken on Easter Sunday 2008 when Kaitlynn was all dressed up and ready to come home from the hospital:
She is in Pre-K this year and loves to go to school. We are having a quick supper tonight and a mini birthday cake because her birthday party is actually taking place on Saturday in Laloopsy style. I have been busy creating Laloopsy decorations and goodies and will be showing those in a separate post in a few days. If you don't know who Laloopsy is, you'll find out soon!
This is the card I whipped up for Kaitlynn:
I used 5 wax candles and covered them with designer paper:
This is how I accomplished that:
I cut a piece of DSP a tad bit longer than the candle and about 1" wide. I added Sticky Strip to both long ends:
Place the candle directly on one of the Sticky Strips after you remove the backing:
Remove the backing from the 2nd strip and start rolling:
Once you get to the end, press down in place so that the dsp layers glue to each other. I made 5 of them total:
Doesn't the layering and the doily make this card so elegant? Even for a little girl!
