Candace's Nerdy Birthday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and Welcome to
 
Today we are Celebrating Candace's 30th Birthday!

Candace and I met on facebook a few years back..... and after about a year or so being friends online we decided since we only lived an hour a way we should see if each other was REAL!!

LOL! We met at Chili's and had dinner and YEP she was REAL and not total crazy or annoying, and so we became friends in real life too !

We both had a love for making crafts and treat making, and always "said" we should go into business together..... but we could never think up what exactly.

We explored several things and had many ideas until one day it dawned on us why not do something we are crazy about...treat making and create products to help other crafters like us!!   So, well that's how Jaded Blossom was created !
 
So I LOVE that we have become great friends and business partner's, we have so much in common except she is a nerd...lol so this birthday celebration is all about that
 
Hope you enjoy all the projects you see ~~~~
 
I made this R2D2 cup for her because she loves Star Wars and I Love these Tervis cups !!
So I thought it would be a great cup for her to take to work.
 

 
This cute file was made by SVG Cutting Files for me and she made it even more nerdy with the glasses and tape on the side...LOL
 
Its all made with outdoor vinyl so she can wash it

 
I also made her a glasses cupcake holder with a new file from SVG Cutting Files.
 
I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom "Nerd" set and the Flag Die 2, also the mustache image is from the Jaded Blossom set Miscellaneous Fun
 

Here's a close up !!! I also used twine from Trendy Twine

Unfortunately, I wont see Candace till Saturday at scrap night soooooo I had to eat her cupcakes....
oh darn right??? hehehehe sorry girl and YEP they were good!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful Birthday !!!
