Rock A Hula Baby

So, I am an Elvis Presley lover. I think it stemmed from my great aunt. I remember as a child, she always sang Elvis songs, watched Elvis movies, and had Elvis posters everywhere. I never thought much about Elvis outside of that until college. For some reason he came back into my life, and I got Elvis CDs & coffee table books for Christmas. Still have them, still listen to them. What's the point of all this? Well, when my sister-in-law told me that our niece's birthday party would be a luau theme, the first then that popped into my head was Rock A Hula Baby! The song has been stuck in my head ever since. This also was prime opportunity to create a fun hula girl card I'd been dying to make with the new Fringe Scissors. Have you tried out those scissors yet? They are SO fun! Perfect for grass for a hula skirt or pretty green grass for an Easter project. Hmmm.... You'll have to keep checking back for that project! :) 

Anyhow, before I get to the Rock A Hula Baby card, as I like to call it, I want to show you her FABULOUS cake! A friend from my sister-in-law's church made the cake & cupcakes. I was completely in awe with it all the whole party! I snapped a few photos of the cute creations, and collaged them to share.

I mean, really, how CAA-UTE is that!!?! The cake is completely perfect, and those precious little cupcakes, oh to die for! And boy was it yummy! Now, the card I made for sweet Camdyn's 3rd birthday is almost as cute! I found a sketch online to use for my layout, and created my hula girl with the Dress Form Framelit Dies, Fringe Scissors, and a few punches.

I used the FREE Petal Parade Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration to create a fun background, and the Remembering Your Birthday for the sentiment. The Gumball Green In-Color Dahlias and Baker's Twine were the perfect touch to add a little pizzazz to the sentiment.

I topped off my hula girl with Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon (this was a last minute add or I would have used Coastal Cabana cardstock rather than Pool Party) and a lei made with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack & Paper Piercing Tool. My hula girl's skirt turned out a little shorter than I had envisioned, but I think she still looks great!

It was the perfect card for the sweet little girl's special day! If you would like to make your own Rock A Hula Baby card you can check out all the supplies I used below. In the meantime, be sure to place your $50 order to get a FREE Sale-A-Bration gift!
