Benny Boy's Birthday is No April Fool's!

My son, Ben, will be celebrating his 7th birthday on April Fool's Day! We stopped by the grocery store right after school and Ben picked out white cake and cream cheese frosting, but had a difficult time deciding on what color food coloring and sprinkles to use for decoration. Finally, he chose to have orange icing with these candy sprinkles. After he was in bed, I got to work on the embellishments for the top...so, this will be part of his surprise in the morning when he wakes up.

Here is a photo of my darling Benny Boy who has eyes that could light up any room and a big heart filled with kindness to all. Happy Birthday, Ben!

I whipped these up quickly, so they are very basic. Using Pacific Point ink, I stamped the image from the Time to Party stamp set on Whisper White cardstock. I punched the images with the 1 1/4" square punch, the Tangerine Tango cardstock with the Large Star punch, and the Kiwi Kiss cardstock with the 1 3/8" square punch. I adhered the layers together with a Pop-Up Glue Dot with the toothpick sandwiched in between.

Stamps: Time to Party
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango & Whisper White
Ink: Pacific Point
Other: 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Squares & Large Star punches, Pop-Up Glue Dots, toothpicks

Well, these are just the cutest things! (Don't tell Ben that, he won't want something "cute"!!!)
Great idea!
