Party ensembles week at paper crafts connection.

Over at paper crafts connection they have a great challenge to win a bunch of prizes. You have to make a party ensemble . Well i am always making stuff for the girls parties and so i thought i would make a ensemble especially for this challenge. and them maybe i can use it to have a little surprise for Zoe!
Here is what i created.

I used Echo park Summer days range for this ensemble along with plenty of bling ribbon and flowers.

here are the little invites i made. i used the echo park papers along with fiskars grass border punch, MFT dienamic alphabet set, a bunch of 3d foam and my Xyron 510 machine to adhere all the letters and embellishments i made. the little goodies bag was echo park paper too and fiskars lacy doubles punch for the edge. and a bo bunny flower.

the cupcake covers are echo park paper, along with the little signs in the cakes. i make these on Photoshop with the digital version of echo park papers.I cut them all out and then glued them with my xyron runner,which was the quickest to use. the cupcakes are choc marble with caramel icing YUM!!!. none for me im on weight watchers :(.........

The little drink sign i made again on photo shop added some bobble eyes and bling.I cut out the hearts and ran both sides through my Xyron 510 then glued together and made the slit to hang on the glass.
 the windmill toy is echo park papers and i used a straw for the handle. getting the windmill to stand in the glass was quite the task. i think there is like 100 glue dots in the bottom of the glass now. Rob is going to go mad when he tries to wash the glass up!!!LOL!!

The napkin rings were echo park papers with a cut out strip for the kids names on it. i also popped some prima flowers on them for some added umph!

And lastly the banner, i made it then cut out some letters i did in Photoshop. i printed them 2 times and layered them for dimension. by this time i had ran out of 3d foam so i got some white fun foam and ran it through my xyron 150 twice(once on each side) to make some "extra" foam. i then added some bling and some sparkly pen on the stitches. you cannot see it that well sorry!

using the combination of echo park papers and also the digital papers that matched was i thought a great idea as some of the things i wanted to do i really needed card stock and a larger print.

All in all i think Zoe will love it!
Don't you???
