That Is How You Do Smash Cake

This week's elements challenge on the Design Dollies is "birthday".  My first instinct was to make a card for my hubby since tomorrow is a milestone bday for him, but somehow that proved too daunting.  So I went for another milestone bday...Numero Uno with the requisite...

My son was so reserved with his cake.  When he was a baby he didn't like his hands to be dirty.  (Doesn't seem to have that problem anymore...)  But this little miss just did the smash cake concept justice:

(Come to think of it, she still plays with/wears her food in a similar fashion to this day and she's now 4.)

WHY aren't there smash cakes for every birthday??  Wouldn't that be so much fun?  So freeing?  How could you NOT enjoy your birthday with frosted hands, cake up your nose, and green goo flecking your hair?? 

So funny, check out what the rest of the Design Team made over on the Design Dollies...you'll notice a theme.  A majority of us (independently) used Sassafras Lass products!  They're just so darn cheery and birthday-y. 

Come, play along with the Dollies!  And while you're at it, check out yesterday's color challenge and stay tuned for Thursday's sketch challenge.  If you can combine all three of the week's challenges into one project you can enter for the Trifecta!  Woohoo!

Hope you have a great Tuesday!


Details:  Sassafrass Lass paper, border paper, & card; Heidi Swapp tapes; ki Memories acrylic letters; Doodlebug & SEI alpha stickers;  Bazzill rhinestones; unknown epoxy alpha stickers & trims.

This is the cutest!!! HA! Great job, and I am pulling towards loving brights and whimsy more and more every day over my shabby chic style- time to change it up a little!
LOL at the glimmer mist- truth be told, I have no luck with the stuff. In fact, I'm switching over to Maya mists because I heard they're a lot better! I thought it was just me- no matter what I use it on, #1,I can't see it and #2 it wrecks my paper!!!!! lol
