Happy 1st Birthday, Lilly!

      Today is my granddaughter's first birthday. Here she is in her party dress.

  The little bugger has begun to walk, so trying to take a photo of her remaining still is almost impossible. I did manage to get one.

    As I mentioned in the previous post, the theme of her birthday party (which was held on Saturday) was Winnie the Pooh. My daughter & I  made a happy birtday banner using her Cricut machine to cut out honey pots.

 Of course no party is complete without birthday hats.  Now that my other granddaughter is almost 3 she is willing to wear one. So of course no ordinary hat would do. Being the crafter that I am I made 3 hats. One for her; the others were for her 2 cousins.

     The pom poms were made out of tissue paper as was the fringe around the bottom of each hat. I used the Martha Stewart fringe scissor .

 The pooh face was cut out using the Cricut machine.


I used elastic thread secured with brads so the hats would stay on the kids' heads.

The birday girl had her own hat.    Instead of a pompom, I used a feather & netting.  

There was lace at the bottom of the hat. The number was was cut out with my Wishblade; then run through my Xyron before I added some blue glitter from Denami.  I fussy cut the Winnie the Pooh from some pattern paper and placed it at the bottom of the hat.

Surpriselingly, Lilly wore her hat.  My daughter & I figured it would be on her head less than 3 seconds.  She loved it!
       I made a card to match her hat.

Some close up shots.

A picture of my soon to be 3 year old granddaughter.  Darn! I didn't get a picture of the other children wearing the birthday hats.
Thanks for looking.  I know this was a long post.
