First Birthday Invite and Cupcake Picks!

My winter break is coming to a close shortly.  I will miss being off and not having to chase like a crazy person!  It's not the working that I mind, but getting kids up and ready, and off to school.  It's the stuff you do after work, like therapy, cheer leading, etc that from time to time exhausts me! But they say a  full life is a sign of a happy life.  I guess most of the time I agree with that! ; ) 

Awhile back I was asked to create a first birthday invite and cupcake picks for the Cricut Circle Magazine.  I decided on these sweet giraffes from the Noah's Ark cartridge. I created a glassine pocket for my invite and added bits of lace, glitter, and rhinestones to girly it up. 
One of the cool elements of Noah's Ark is the ability to cut 3D animals.  This was perfect for cupcake picks!  I attached their bodies to a cute polka dot paper straw and added a large flower at the bottom.
Too bad I hadn't baked for the picture.  They would look way cuter in a cupcake!

Don't forget to leave a comment HERE for your chance to win a spot in Cindy's Card making Class!  The winner will be selected on January 9th! 
Tomorrow the JustRite Papercraft DT will reveal the first of many CHA releases! YAY! You are going to love all the new sets coming out!!!
