Peanut's Birthday

Today we had Peanut's birthday party, so no craft room for me today. We had a great birthday party at the local park. They have a spray park and it's still warm enough to play in the water.

It was a Dora the Explorer party. I made a cake. It's four layers and I had to carve part of it - my first carved cake. I made all the buttercream myself. The cars, bridge, and trees came as part of a Dora birthday cake set.

We made the invitations ourselves too. I found a backpack coloring sheet on Nick Jr. I erased map out of the image and copied his face into another image. We printed backpack on purple paper and cut her out. We printed out map on parchment and glued his face on the outside. The invitation is propped up on the party favor box. DH helped me with the favors which were inexpensive flashlights that we decorated with Dora stickers.
Happy Scrapping!
