Happy Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning


Hi and welcome to McVic is 36 Birthday Blog hop! I was so honored to be asked to participate in this blog, so please sit down, stay a while, and enjoy the cards or crafty projects we have made. Also  make sure you comment on each blog, Kacee is going to give away some blog birthday candy to a follower who comments on all the blogs, and lives in the United States. There may be other candy along the way.
If you just happen upon my blog today, and would like to play along, please start over at Kacee's  Blog. www.youhadmeatscrap.blogspot.com, I wouldnt want you to miss out on any candy!

If you just came from Rhonda you are in the right spot.

It's been a while since I've used my cricut as I am loving my E-Craft, but if you saw my cake last week you know I finally put it to work and I knew I wanted to make this for Kacee.  Her favorite colors are pink, white and black so I had this fabulous paper in my stash.  I cannot remember who it's from, but this is all I had left of it.  1 single sheet of a 12 x 12.  First I cut the piece of cake out in white cardstock at 11 inches.  After it was cut out, I cut my pattern paper to fit over it piece by piece.  
 I added some lace trim around the 
edges to give it a real girly look.
 Now technically the backside should have
had the lace trim, but I liked the look 
around the sides the best for a single piece.
 The label was from a free nestabilities svg file I had received somewhere 
and inked in pink and black around the edges a bit.  Then I distressed the center of the tag a bit more also.   I used the sentiment from the 
Getting Cricky Coffee and Tea set.  
It's a mix and match set and I can make up almost any combination.
Love that idea!!!
Now you can fill your piece of cake with some goodies
 and you have yourself a unique gift.

I hope you've enjoyed hopping over here and checking out my project, so please leave a comment and I will be sending someone a piece of cake that you can assemble and some papers and lace to decorate to your liking.  I will announce the winner on Friday so you be sure to tell your friends to come and check it out.

Now head on over to my friend Audrey and see what crafty project she has made!

Thank you for hoping with us today! Here is the hop list incase you get lost....
