Welcome to Scrap~tures Birthday Celebration blog hop!!
Thanks so much for joining us and we hope that you gain lots of inspiration and continue to hop with us!!

Scrap~tures turned one this month so the theme for this hop is BIRTHDAYS!!!!!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking
place, please go back to Scrap~tures and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our team....... or the chance to win a prize :-)

For my birthday related project is has 2 parts... 1 project and 1 yummy cake recipe

my project is a birthday/anniversary perpetual calendar (using scraptures December card kit which can be found here.... )

I love the idea of having all the important dates such as Birthday(s) and Anniversary(s) at a quick glance....
I made this perpetual desk calendar with very little supplies...
1) printable calendar
2) 5x7 clear picture frame
3) 5x7 piece of pattern paper and matching card stock (I used the December Card Kit as it went perfectly with the theme)
4) ribbon
5) Bull Dog Clip (office supply store)

the instructions are super easy, print and cut your perpetual calendar to size cut your pattern paper to fit the frame slide into the frame embellish with a little ribbon, and attached the months with a bull dog clip....this makes it easy to switch out the months....

These are just supplies that I have had on hand... you could use anything to attach your calendar too... Chip Board, make it into a mini album, Clip Board, you could even make a board book out of the calendar if you like....
Here is a picture of the finished calendar.....

And now onto the second part of my post.... what is a Birthday Party with out a yummy yummy Birthday cake or in the case of this post a rainbow cake...
I came across this blog that posted super easy instructions for a beautiful rainbow cake... and it is sooooo yummy.... I have made it and the oooohsss and the awwwssss where so worth it... for detailed instructions check out this blog....
