♥ Baby's 1st Birthday Cupcake {holder} ♥

♥♥♥ I am so sorry for this late post! I have had no phone or Internet service for almost a week! We had our sidewalks installed (finally!) last Thursday and they cut the phone line by mistake! Verizon just made it out here and fixed it, literally 15 minutes ago!! So I apologize to everyone! ♥♥♥

I am your Hostess this week at The Shabby Tea Room and I chose the theme of "Sweet Baby" for this week's challenge. It is to create a card and/or project with a baby theme. I decided to make a cupcake stand that would hold baby's 1st Cupcake!
I first made the cupcake stand out of some printable papers and a cupcake stand template (you can purchase it HERE). I then added the adorable rocking horses to it, to give it a Carousel look. The rocking horses are a digi stamp from this week's sponsor, Lauretta's Digital Stamps. This sweet image is only $1.50!
I also used some wooden dowels that I wrapped in ribbons, some punched alphabet blocks, a piece of cardboard that I placed between the stand and top for extra support, a paper doily, glitter and more ribbon. This literally took me about an hour to make. It is a super easy and FUN project to make for a Birthday Cupcake!

The winner of this week's challenge will win 4 Digi images of your choice from either Lauretta's Digital Stamps or Coco Dingo!
