Lily's Birthday and Tombow Sticky University !!

Hi Everyone !!!
I wanted to show you the treats I had made for my daughter Lily's birthday !!
She wanted a Lily themed party this year ♥

Here are her invites !!
All the cuts are from SVG Cutting Files and the stamp from Jaded Blossom

This was the goodie table for everyone to take from !
I made everything to not melt, so I had to be choosy with the candy etc...
The LILY♥ candy dishes I bought off Amazon and filled with various wrapped candies

I made treats using the Jaded Blossom Candy Caddy Dies and the Lily stamp.
I used the Tombow  Fastner Tabs (which are like thin Velcro!) to hold them together !

I also bagged gumballs in the coordinating colors using the Jaded Blossom 2.25x8 bags
Also I made antibacterial holders using hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works

 The cut file from SVG Cutting Files
The tag die from Jaded Blossom along with the stamp set "Kind thanks" and the Lily flower.
I used the NEW Tombow Xtreme adhesive to hold the boxes together !
It holds soooo super sturdy !
and the Tombow Fastner Tabs again for the flap!

I also bought these bubbles at Target and used colored vinyl to add the kid's names and dots !

Per Lily's request we smoked Tri tip, hot dogs, served my famous cheese potatoes, pasta salad and fresh picked strawberries with another one of my famous dips !!
drinks ~ to match of course !
I served water and Pineapple Lemonade !!

I scored at Michaels when I found these mason jar glasses with these colored dots!
So I just added their names to the front
Bought matching lids on Amazon
and used paper straws !
Each guest then got to take them home as one of the gifts

To go with the whole Lily theme I used the Lily on waterbottle wraps !

The cake was sooo Yummy !
I bought it from Nothing Bundt Cake
The top was raspberry lemon with cream cheese frosting
the bottom Red Velvet with chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting
If you have one of these bakery's near you, its definitely worth trying the cakes are SUPER moist !

These Lily flowers are ICING !!!
My friend Jaymie made them by hand and used edible food coloring to color them !!
WOWZERS is right ! right? lol
Everyone at the party had to touch them because they thought they were real !

Here are the TOMBOW products I used to create my crafts for this party !!!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to see my daughters party ♥

Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop!

If you're here from CANDACE then you're in the right place. If not then you will want to start at the beginning HERE

This Blog Hop will work a little differently than our past ones. We give free SVGs all the time, and this time, we are asking YOU to give back to the Animals by donating to our fundraising campaign "Save the Animals". By donating, you can earn exclusive SVGs. Here is a look at the donation levels. And as a BONUS since your donation is going to a charity, its a tax write off!! So keep your receipt!

Here is an example of the donation screen.. When donating, please make sure to include your email address under "personal note" so that we can send you the SVGs that pertain to your donation level (it will not be published on the website)

Each person in this hop picked one animal to represent today. I picked Dolphins !!
I picked Dolphins because my daughter LOVES the movie Dolphin Tale !!
If you haven't seen it you are truly missing a EXCELLENT movie !! We watch the movie several times a month.
(Based on a true story!!)
This is WINTER
She was found caught in fishing ropes and cages along the beach
Her tail was so badly infected they had to remove it.
She was fitted with a prosthetic tale to help her swim and is currently at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which is a hospital and rescue for Marine life animals.
You can check on her by visiting
My daughter and I visit the site weekly

After you see this movie a Dolphin Tale 2 is coming out in Sept !
We are counting the days till it comes out !!
Now on to my project..

The dolphin treat box is NEW from SVG Cutting Files

I also used Stamps from Jaded Blossom
Sea Life Candies &
Awareness Candies
I used paper from Stampin Up and Paper Trey and
foam adhesive squares to layer the waves !

Thank you so much for checking out our Blog Hop.

Here is the line up for the hop!
