Birthday Banner for Ashley

Our youngest daughter, Ashley, was born on Valentine's Day - 21 years ago!


The ice cream cake was delicious - Coldstone makes the best ice cream cakes!


I made a banner with my Cricut machine. 
It's really hard to take decent pictures when the background is the window...


I used the Opposites Attract and Accents Essentials Cricut Cartridges


and added several different embellishments to each letter


I used several of the flowers that I made this past week


and because Ashley loves Hello Kitty, I needed to incorporate one on the banner


Michaels Craft Store had so many cute things for Valentine's Day...


This flower was made out of a coffee filter that I had colored and crumpled up.


Here's the fam sitting ready to chow down.
We had more mashed potatoes than we did roast!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Valentine's Day
and to Ashley - Happy Birthday!
We love you very much!

I'd like to share a few vintage Valentine cards with you too...






I'm linking to these parties.

Oh this banner is so adorable. I bet she loved it.
Doesn't matter how old they become we still love to make them stuff.
You have a beautiful family- and pass the potatoes I just love them.

That is such a sweet banner! You put so much creativity and time into that! Have a Happy Valentines Day!

Found you through Skip to My Lou. Your banner is so cute. I won't show it to my daughter though because she'll want a birthday party do-over and I can't take another one this year! LOL

The banner is really special.

If you have a lot of mashed potatoes left, I recently did a post on how to make potato cheese soup out of it. Maybe you already know that. I love the banner and the dressed up little booklets too.
