Monster High?????

Hi everyone,
Thought I better stop being so scared and try to post something with this new blogger format...
Last month my daughter ask me if I could help make some party decorations for one of my granddaughters 9th birthday party. Even though I live 3 1/2 hours away, I knew I wanted to help. The theme, MONSTER HIGH!!!!! What the heck is Monster High, I asked!!!!  My daughter explained that its the latest fad with shocking pink, black, skeletons, and bats... Mmmmm, interesting. So I got started!

These are the little cupcakes pokes I made using cardstock, toothpicks and Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge...


Some "girly" skeletons I made for my daughter to use for the party to decorate wherever she wanted to put them. (kinda creepy, but cute in a fun sort of way)!! She ended up putting one on top of the cake...



And finally, the card I made for Caily to match all the decorations. Sorry about the quality of the photo, I NEED a new camera! Well, I guess I did it, posted with this new blogger format. Going to take awhile to get used to this! (wonder why they couldn't just leave it the way it was?) Thank you for stopping by.  Hugs, Dawn

Hi Dawn! I love the little cupcake toppers. This challenge would be "out of my comfort zone", so I give you big credit for trying something new. I have also been having issues with the new Blooger format. I don't like change, and wasn't happy about it. I've also had trouble commenting on some blogs, so I hope this post goes through. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Chat with you soon!
Hugs,
Karen
P.S. Don't forget to play along at www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com when you can. Thanks!

Hi again, Dawn. I think the little bags are from Michaels, but I'm not sure. If you can't find them where you live, let me know and I can pop some in the mail. You get quite a few per package.
Hope those blogger issues are working themself out. I know they've sure frustrated me! LOL
Hugs,
Karen

Love your cupcake pokes, Dawn! I know what you mean about having to use the new forum. Tech change is SO HARD for me too. I was off my computer for a few weeks and bam, they change stuff. You did GREAT on your blog!
Hugs, Cindy
