The years fly by…

8 years ago my sweet, adorable, smart, funny…well perfect little granddaughter was born. My son-in-law thinks it is rude of me to say she is the best little girl in the world…I believe that it is every grandmothers right. :~)

Every year I have been able to use my KNK Maxx to make Birthday party items.

The party theme was Mermaids and it was a swim party. I made an awesome invitation in the shape of a mermaid tail but didn’t take one picture…I know! The cake topper was made using glitter vinyl and chipboard (it’s on sale!) I cut two pieces of the glitter vinyl, one of them mirrored for the back and one piece of the chipboard. The KNK chipboard cuts like a dream. The cinch bags were made just using HTV and were given as a party favor. And then there is Hailey’s shirt (I had a picture of her wearing it but who knows where???) The shirt is all  Glitterflex ultra vinyl.

  1. Your granddaughter is adorable. My oldest will be 8 on her next birthday. She also loves mermaids. I love making things for her birthday! Are you able and willing to share the mermaid file? I have some mermaid pics that would be perfect with it! Thanks.
