Curious? ..... George

well, my baby girl is turning 5 in a week and decided that she wanted a curious george cake and party. do you know how hard it is to find curious curious george stickers? it's impossible ... until the day that i casually look over my shoulder while in line at the market, and there they will be, the elusive curious george stickers. mark my words, it WILL happen.

anyhow, we did find a curious george cake at lowe's foods (and ordered it). i have to admit, of all the things that i make, i have never made her a b-day cake. our tradition is to let her pick one from the book at the store. works for us and the cake is actually very good.

dd and i decided that we would make a monkey themed invite this year and this is what we came up with:

we searched and searched for banana eyelets (even on the internet) and could not find those either. so we went with jolee's stickers. $0.99 for two little bananas! we are both happy with the result. the tree is actually a cuttlekids die cut (dd's not mine) of a flower stem and leaves. it held up very well to the abuse it received. it takes a lot of leaves to make one tree and we made 10 invites. i could run two pieces of cheap card stock through at the same time. however, two sheets of SU's card stock would have stripped the gears ... trust me i almost did!

Oooooooooo... i got my paper trey ink stamps yesterday and will post pictures later today or tonight. i feel like a kid in a candy store!

E opened her invitation, she promptly took the sticker from the envelope and put the monkey in the tree. :) Then she asked if Gram or Grandpa would be attending the party also. "Not this year". E and I will be there!
