Hello there! 
It's the fifth Monday of the month. Do you know what that means??? It's time for a blog hop!!!

Our theme for this hop is PARTY DECOR!

Boy it seems like forever since I took a break to deal with renovations in my home.  I can't believe it has taken almost a year, and I have a pretty small home LOL!!!! But I am so happy to be back.  I have missed all my great friends at PCBG and the many scrapbooking community's that I love to be a part of.  And what a great time to join in!!!! There is nothing more exciting than a BLOG HOP......especially a PGCB Blog Hop!!!!

So...first off, what's a blog hop without a prize??

Unity Stamps is our sponsor for this blog hop! 
Hop on over to their facebook page and thank them for their generosity if you don't mind! They have this wonderful prize pack of stamps for one lucky winner!

When I heard that the theme for this Blog Hop was going to be Party Decor, I knew exactly what I wanted to share. I am so blessed to have 2 amazing little granddaughters in my life, and helping their Mom throw birthday parties for them is super fun.  One of my favourites was Miss Taylor's 1st birthday.  She is a November baby and because she was born during a huge snowstorm one of her middle names is Winter. So as you will see.......all the decorating made perfect sense.

This canvas was so much fun to create. I bought it already primed black and then just used my EK SUCCESS CHALK COLLECTION WRITERS.  It was my first time trying anything like this, so it was far from perfect, but lots of fun!!!

My Silhouette came in very handy for making decorations for the Candy Bar, Cupcakes, and Birthday Cake. Artwork by TomKat Studio. A little fancy ribbon and everything looked amazing!!!

More yummy treats!!!!

And Taylor's Party Invitation

Lastly I made this sweet banner.  Again my Silhouette came in handy. There are so many 3D Bows to choose from and this one with snowflake cutouts fit my party theme perfectly!!!
