Happy Birthday Sweet Heart!!!

Today's post has been brought to you by the number 3!

Today is my little girl's third birthday......I can't believe it!!!!

We are off eating her birthday breakfast with Elmo...I hope she enjoys that! We had to buy a breakfast character meal because it was the only meal that guaranteed that Elmo would be there....so breakfast it is! Last year we had an Elmo party...we should have done the same this year since we are spending her birthday at Sesame Place...but she wanted a Hello Kitty party! What is it with her and Hello Kitty???? That is what her "Big Girl Room" had to be when we converted her crib to a full bed...Hello Kitty! Let me tell you...it wasn't easy to decorate a Hello Kitty bedroom on a "non - collector" budget! But we are mustering through it! So anyway...she wanted a Hello Kitty party...so in the middle of our Sesame Street week...we have Hello Kitty! oh well!

We took presents with us for her to open on her birthday and her card....had to be Hello Kitty, right??? Well...I wanted to stamp her card....but came up empty with finding hello Kitty rubber stamps that you could make a card with.....so I turned to scrapbooking supplies. If seeing something on my blog that isn't totally Stampin'Up! makes you sad...turn your eyes away! There are Stampin' Up! things on here...but there are other things as well. lol!!

Close up of the balloons:

They were cut with one of my many die cut systems....lol! the "3" is from Stampin' Up!'s chipboard set- Lots of letters. I covered it with Tombo Mono Multi and chunky glitter from the spring mini catalog (retired...). The balloon strings are silver embroidery floss. I have been doing counted cross stitch for as long as I can remember, so there isn't a shortage of stitchin' supplies around here!

The sentiment is from Hugs and Wishes.

The Kitty is a Sticker, I adhered it to white card stock and cut it out...popped it up onto pop up glue dots...voila!

My accents at the bottom are flowers from the Three For You punch accented with black brads. I lined them up with my mat pack and piercer.

3 balloons, number 3, 3 flowers, 3 brads.....my little girl is 3!!!
