It's me..... MARIO!!!

Good Morning Everyone! I hope your weekend was great and
that your week is off to an AWESOME start! My weekend
was busy! MY oldest turned 20 on Tuesday last week then my
youngest turn 10 on Saturday. I threw him a sleep over Birthday
Party on Friday night with 8 of his closest friends! I can tell ya
that after the night was over.... I was EXHAUSTED! Boy....
a house full of little boys can wear a person down! LOL
All the boys had a BLAST! and the theme was MARIO!
So they got to play Wii games all night long and I had lots
of sugary goodies for the occasion...
So I thought today I would post the picture of the CUTE
banner I made for his party....

First off.... This is the very first banner I've EVER MADE!
Seriously! I've never made a banner before....

And I did it in 1 hours time! SERIOUSLY! 1 hour is all
it took me to make this!

I looked online for Mario Pictures and saved
them to my computer.... Then I imported them into my Silhouette
I used a couple different banner parts from
different banners I have in my Silhouette Library.....

I used Echo Parks Boy Digi Paper to fill in the
Banner pieces and let my printer and Machine
do all the work! Once it was done I just
put all the pieces together, then strung it up
using Baker's Twine! And BAM!
A CUTE Banner with my sons name on it, with
some of his favorite Characters!

I also created these Rosettes using my Silhouette and the
same images I got from the Internet....

There really wasn't mush around for "Mario" stuff...
At least where I live, and since I work all the time,
I really didn't have a lot of time to plan his party...
Soooo I improvised by using my Silhouette and images off
the Internet to create a simple, yet fun set up for my sons
Birthday party! Hunter LOVED everything I made for him...
Which is really ALL that matters! :o)

Thanks for letting me share my son's birthday
elements with you! Enjoy the rest of the week
and have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Theresa, I forgot to tell you, I won a Silhouette Portrait.And believe it or not I am figuring out the program. lol Which also is helping me figure out CCR. I'm using that too. Go figure. I guess an old dog can learn a few new tricks.
