How to make a 7 Year Old Happy...

Or...Dinosaurs, Cupcakes and Green...

And it sure did make him happy!! :) Yesterday was my son's 7th Birthday and he requested Green Dinosaur cupcakes. I made box cake cupcakes, colored the frosting green and then printed up some dino clip art. I punched them out and layered them on a scallop punched piece with a toothpick in between, Voila, Dinosaur cupcakes! ;)

And in other birthday news, I have a Card! I have many birthdays coming up And need to get some more Birthday cards to my Grandma, so you will be seeing a lot of Birthday stuff around here for awhile!

I started this card on my Girl's Retreat last weekend and just had to finish up some details once I got home, added the black roses and the gem in her hair along with some stickles on her skull shirt. The layout is for the Farm Fresh Friday Sketch last week.

For the inside I used just a Slice of a scrap of the PP and a sentiment from a retired TGF set...
