Happy Thursday!

Today is a special day at Sketchy Thursdays!  A whole new crop of talented, inspiring designers is beginning a new term today, and I am blessed to be a part of it :).  Diana and Heidi are like virtual family - two of the sweetest, most beautiful people - and I was so excited when they asked me to continue designing for Sketchy Thursdays.  Of course I jumped at the chance!

Yesterday I alluded to Colten's 8th birthday party.  He chose a carnival theme and a mustache motif.  I decorated in red, yellow, white and black and pulled papers from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer line to create cupcake toppers, favors, and banners.  Here are just a few shots from the party:

We set up a "photo booth" with mustaches for everyone (coming to a layout soon!):

I'll share more later :).  The sketch today is definitely one I'll be repeating.  I love using smaller, multiple photos lately:

So head on over to Sketchy Thursdays to see what the new team has created (fabulous stuff!) and to read all about the awesome sponsor.  Have a great day! Tessa

  2. Great ideas for the party - mushtaches seem to be "in" in the states. Cute what you say about your blogging family! It can be wierd to get to know people so closely online.
    Loving the cupcakes too - as always!
