Happy Birthday!

August is a busy birthday month. Diana's birthday is being celebrated over on the Magnolia-licious Highlites with a Birthday Challenge. Tommorrow is my birthday, and the Thursday is my sweet little girl's birthday. That's alota cake!!

I love this little box for birthdays. It's a single cupcake box. Sorry I didn't add a cupcake for the picture but they go fast in this house! LOL! I found the tutorial for this 2 years ago and printed it out. It's from Confessions of a Ribbon Addict, Judy Morrow and it's her April 21, 2008 post.

Kitchen Tilda was so much fun to color in pinks and blues. She's done in distress inks and I think she's perfect for this little treat. I had a great time making this. I hope you enjoy it! BTW, I had a matching card that was supposed to go with this treat and I tried my hand at my new little sewing machine. Let's just say I still need ALOT of practice and more DP. So maybe in the future I will post it's card.

Happy Birthday to all the August babies!
