A Sweet 16 Birthday

Today is my daughter's 16th birthday :o)  She's a girl through and through... and loves nothing better than a little shopping excursion.  This little gift bag die is a favourite of mine, so I knew she'd love it on her card.  Here's what I came up with:
Patterned papers are Dolled Up, My Mind's Eye and Dakota, CTMH; Cardstock is Colonial White & Smoothie, CTMH; Stamp sets are Say it in Style & Let's Shop, CTMH; Ink is Slate; Shopping Bag & Labels die, Taylored Expressions.

And now to show you the sweet cupcakes she made to give to her friends as a thank-you for coming to her birthday dinner.  The cupcakes were simple - vanilla with a vanilla icing swirl; a few flakes of colour and a royal icing flower on top.

She placed them into petal wrappers, and dropped them into clear plastic cups:

Then she put them into clear cello bags, and tied them with little tags we cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge on our Cricut - they have little cupcake cutouts on the bottom:

It made transport to the restaurant very easy, and the girls could easily carry them home.
