A DINO-mite 5th Birthday Party….

Hello there I hope you are well and your weekend was as relaxing as it gets mine was hectic to say the least but fun and full of happiness :) On Friday we travelled down to LONDON for a very important birthday party on Saturday. My little nephew turned 5!!!!!! Geez I find that hard to comprehend. Anyway I was very excited as I had some surprises for him that he didn’t know about. Here’s my favourite dinosaur of the day :)

And here’s the same favourite  dinosaur from the back

Aww how stinkin cute are those tails?  I made one for all his attending friends but I didn’t stop there

feet

I made the DINO  feet using the Big Shot machine and our circle scallop die ( I love being crafty and having the right supplies on hand). The claws were simple cut out shapes of pumpkin pie card stock stuck between a layer of card stock and the fluffy fabric layer. A simple elastic band was stapled either side for ease of getting them on and off.

And very soon we had a stampede of little and BIG dinos, you’re never too old for dressing up at party’s :)

Hee hee, I found a very easy to follow tutorial here but I totally simplified mine even more from that one as time was really of the essence , in fact I am amazed I managed it all, life has been hectic lately.

The cake:

t rex cake

And yes its not my finest moment but let’s just say the cake didn’t travel well and I got the design completely wrong from the picture Luca found on the Internet, I had to move the eggs 5 times, yes 5 times until one little boy was happy with the result (I called him fussy at some point and he took real offense to it LOL), so I had to scrape the writing then do it again needles to say  it ended up a bit of a mess but he thought it was great.

t rex  They played, danced, run around till their faces were bright red and then it was time to sit down for a feast fit for the most discerning carnivore or herbivore.
