Go Diego Go!

I'm amazed that time has flown by so fast, but my little babygirl just turned 4 - OMG!
Breanna is a HUGE Diego fan, so her birthday was all about Diego. Here's the card I made featuring said Animal Rescuer:


Here it is with the wrapping paper that inspired the card...My Husband thinks I have a problem with insisting that things co-ordinate - I don't know what he is talking about!...

I was very proud - she went for the card first and loved it!

And here is one of the gifts unwrapped - baby Jaguar of course!

And then there was the cake...she asked for a Diego rainforest adventure cake with a mountain and waterfall...this is what Rick and I came up with...pretty good I reckon...and it was a hit with all the kids - especially when they realised the rocks were chocolate!


Here's a close up of Diego and Baby Jaguar in the rescue Jeep!


And I even made some Baby Jaguar Cookies...


So all in all Breanna had a great 4th Birthday. I was still sick, but other than that it was wonderful. Urgh I really hate being sick...my little virus turned into a full blown URT Infection which is really not fun...so apart from getting through the Birthday and Easter I haven't been up to doing much...and with only 2 weeks until convention I better pull finger and make some swaps!!

Well done, the cake is amazing. Looks so yummy. The cards not too bad either. Hope Breanna had a great time at her party.

OMG Karen! You two are absolutely amazing with what you come up with! I'm VERY impressed - can you come up for Miss Lu's birthday please? She loves Diego too (and still has a soft spot for The Wiggles). Breanna has grown into such a beautiful little girl. Hope you're feeling better soon too. We missed you on Saturday night

WOW Karen, not only are you a talented stamper and scrapper but a great cake maker too! Well done, it looks lovely and I know (being a grandma to 2) that the kids would have loved it.

Hope you get well soon.
