~personalized cupcake toppers~

My little lady turned 1 a couple days ago.
I can't believe it. 
WOW....that year flew by!
For her birthday I decided to make cupcakes
for everyone instead of a cake.
I thought about buying some cute cupcake
toppers but got a great idea to make 
some with the pictures I've been taking of 
her at each month mark.
I loved the way they turned out
and everyone had fun looking at them.

 I know the pictures aren't the greatest but
I think you get the idea. 

To make them I printed up the pictures,
cut them out and then just used clear packing tape
to cover and attach them to the toothpick. 
For the rest of the toppers I tied ribbons around
the top of the toothpicks and called it good.
I learn so much with each party I have for the kids.
What I learned from this one:
cupcakes would have photographed better if
they were lined up on something flat instead.
Also-don't wait until the last minute to get things done.
Have it done before the actual birthday so I can 
enjoy the birthday with them :)

This week my mind is on one thing:
Pirate Party.
My little guy's birthday party is in one week
and I have A TON of stuff to do. I want to get it
finished within the next few days so I'm not scrambling
at the last minute and stressed out. 

I have found some super cute ideas.
I just got introduced to Pinterest.
I love it!
Now if I could just figure out how to use it.

Very cute. I didn't see the cupcakes up close and personal, but they looked adorable. Very cute idea.
