It has been loads of fun having an appreciative audience admiring my bits of paper. I didn't realize I had this immense need for external validation.
Thank you for all your comments, emails and words of support. Many thanks to those of you who encouraged me to start this - you know who you are.
Melanie gets 10 points for the best suggestion to commemorate this day. As she suggested, we are having
Cake and Punch!
OK, the truth?
I'm going to be eating fudge snack cakes (yes plural, who can eat just one?) and drinking Diet Coke.
I couldn't find the punch bowl. (I didn't look)
Besides, it is too early to spike the punch.
And I've always wondered, if you have "spike" why bother with the punch?
Anyway, wipe the cake crumbs off your chin, grab your beverage of choice and raise a glass ...
Here's to the I-Fairy and to the Blinkin' Blog.
Happy Birthday Little Blog!
Template for the cake can be found at Victorine Originals (look under patterns).
I used the scallop punch to create the frosting and the two sizes of scallop circles to make the flower on top.
It takes 12 of these slices to make a whole cake - how cute would that be? You can see half a cake created by Karen Graff-Povis right HERE. So many options for decorating - try it out!
