Life's a Party!

Hi Everyone!!  It's Liza from Hoo's
   This week on SweetSassyDiva we were asked to make any
type of project using a cartridge not already tagged on the blog and it had to
start with the same letter as our first name.   I was able to pick
from a few that had not been used yet, but since I love a party...I picked Life's
A Party.

A friends daughter had a baseball birthday party and I wanted to make something
special for her.   One of my favorite cuts on this cartridge is the
birthday hat {found on pg 65}.   It's a simple cut that can be dressed
up so many different ways.  The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Colorbok cardstock
 Fit To Page to determine the size of the hat {8.25"}
Before gluing it together, I went to the sewing machine for a zig zag stitch at
the bottom
I cut the number from this cartridge also {3.75"} both the shadow and base cut.
I used a white pen for some faux stitching on the number as well as navy ink for
the edges.

The baseball was cut {1.5"}, assembled, and glued to the top of the hat to tie
in the theme of the party.
I cut ribbon at random lengths, tied in the center and placed into the center of
the hat before rolling the hat up.

Lastly, I used a hole punch to tie ribbon to the sides of the hat.

Thanks so much for checking out my project today.
