Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge 19!

Hello!  I hope that your having a great weekend!  I am here with another Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  This week's challenge is sweet treats with ribbon on top!

This challenge is quite fitting for me.  Since I really like sweet treats!  Desserts, candy, chocolate oh my!  Right up my alley!  I have a major sweet tooth!  Jenny picked this challenge this week because it was my fellow DT member Kim's birthday this past week! 

This week's sponsor is a company you all know and love May Arts!  They have such great ribbon!

I wanted to make a fun birthday card:

Today we had my son Carter's 2nd birthday party!  The other day when thinking of what I should make, cupcakes or cake I thought of using a cupcake on my card.  And than I thought of using Perfect Pearls by Ranger as frosting and sprinkled some real sprinkles on it and let it dry!  I wasn't sure if it would work, but it did pretty well.  It has such a nice effect!  It takes a long time to dry, and once you sprinkle the sprinkles leave them wherever they fall as they do bleed a bit of color. 

Carter's party went so well today!  The weather was perfect for the park, hot but not sticky! A lot of our friends and family took the time to free up busy summer schedules to join us and celebrate!  And we all enjoyed the BBQ!  Here is my favorite photo of the day:

I love my family!  Can you tell that Carter's two year old molars are right on schedule?

I will be back on Monday and continue with my giveaways, I am sorry I had to put a delay.  BTW I have two other giveaways in the posts after this...  Life got so busy and I want to enjoy the giveaways instead of feeling all rushed!

Looks like you all had a great time at Carter's party! I hope his teeth stop bothering him soon. The pretty butterfly on Ariel's top reminds me of one of the HA's ones!

Cute card, Anita! I didn't realize they were real sprinkles-how cute is that! Love that you used Perfect Pearls for the frosting. I have yet to get some of these-but they are on my wish list!
