Each day there has been a theme to create for a birthday party. The theme today is food. I love giving food gifts and this was fun for me to do. I have two projects I want to share. This first one is my all time favorite altered treat with a toilet paper tube. I think this would be so much fun to give as a take home gift for a Strawberry Shortcake party. These yummy candies are called Strawberry Puffs.
For my second project, I made a cupcake holder. You can download the pattern here. I love this sparkly cupcake paper that IHP carries! I added the shiny velvet rick rack to the inside. This would be fun to make for a child's or adult party or just because.
Strawberry project supplies: Paper, rick rack, ribbon
Cupcake holder supplies: paper, rick rack,
Here is the info on the IHP blog:
IHP Birthday Bash Challenge —Day 5
Another very important consideration in party-planning is the menu! The kitchen is usually the favorite gathering place for guests, and food and drink are the main attraction.
Our challenge for you today is to make a card (scrapbook page, 3-D item, etc.) using stamps or papers that feature food and/or drink!
Remember, everything this week has to do with birthday celebrations...so be sure your creation is birthday related!
Before you begin, take a few minutes to review the challenge guidelines! You’ll want to follow these rules to maximize your points and qualify for the opportunity to WIN the prize for today’s challenge and the Grand Prize, all announced on the last day of our festivities!
To qualify for the prize of the day, all you have to do is upload your challenge card/project to Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) and/or Paper Craft Planet (PCP) with the appropriate tag so we can find it. Today’s challenge tag is IHPBB5. The daily challenge winners will be randomly selected at the end of the week.
To qualify for the Grand Prize of being IHP Guest Designer for the month of November, here’s how it will work: Every challenge card/project you enter will earn you points (see below), and one with the most accumulated for the week the Grand Prize winner. So the more challenges you enter, more points you earn — and the better your chances of winning the Grand Prize (and the bigger the value of your Guest Designer box will be)!
You will have until October 25th to post your work, and you can enter as many challenges as you like, but you CANNOT combine challenges in one project. All winners, including the Grand Prize winner, will be announced at the Birthday Bash on October 26th.

For each project:
5 points for each challenge card/project you make, upload and tag to SCS

Today was beautiful and I wish it would have been a x-country meet instead of tomorrow when the high is suppose to be 43*, 50% chance of rain and possibility of snow!
I fed over 30 runners last nite. I made lasagne and a couple of moms helped out with paper products and desserts. I think they all had a great time. I will post pics later.
My pumpkin card uses the pumpkin from Happy Harvest and the flourishes from new to be released Fanciful Flourishes. I also used the polka dot from Spooktacular digi paper pack.

New Singles of the Month!
It's October 1st, which
means that it's time to reveal our new Singles of the Month.... Introducing
Pilgrim Girl and Pilgrim Boy....the two newest additions to our Little People
line! These two stamp singles are being sent out with the Monthly Mix (if you
are signed up for the extra Singles-of-the-Month) and they are now available in
our webstore! Don't they make a cute couple?
If you follow my blog at all you know I love everything about fall and Thanksgiving in my favorite holiday. I am thrilled to share a card made with two singles by Lizzie Anne Designs, this boy and girl pilgrim. I placed them both on my large clear block and stamped once. (note: these are TWO stamps, not one)
I wanted to make a "traditional colored" card so I printed four digi papers with the black and white option. The dots are from the NEW Spooktacular paper pack (just in time for Halloween projects), The plaid and scallop from The Great Outdoors and the stripe is from Surf & Sand.
You can go here to see the Projects of the Month page for more fall inspiration.
