Bella's Birthday

I am one of those crazy dog people that celebrates their pet's birthdays. I don't have children yet, so I have to dress something up!
I cut flowers in half, stuck a button in the middle and put a rhinestone in the middle of each button.

Summer Time

I used 10 different shades of blue paper to make the waves. This was a lot of paper punching!!!! My wrist was sore after this layout.
I punched small eyelets into the pictures and large letters.

People & Paws Tea Party & Dog Fashion Show

I put together a wonderful fundraiser for the Humane Society of Manatee County. I love tea parties and dogs, so I combined the two! While our guests ate a beautiful lunch we had 16 canine models strut their stuff down the runway. It was such a great event and we raised $1,600 for the Humane Society!

Decorations I made from paper doilies and scrapbook paper:

Wii Bowling Tournament Trophies

I was browsing at Goodwill one day when I saw a bag of plastic bowling pins for $3. I knew I had a Wii Bowling tournament coming up and hadn't even thought of the trophies. I knew immediately what I was going to do with them.
Wii Bowling Trophies!!!!!!
Went to Wal-Mart and bought spray paint in Gold, Silver and Carmel Latte (supposed to look bronze)
I sprayed the plastic bowling pins (2 coats).
Using Mod Podge I coated the head of the bowling pin and sprinkled glitter on it. The only bad thing about dealing with glitter is no matter what you use to adhere the glitter to whatever surface, some glitter will still fall off. So I used a gloss sealent spray to really make sure the glitter stays on the plastic bowling pin. I used black acrylic paint to draw the numbers on. DONE!
