Before's and After's

This little one-year-old (seriously- how did that happen so fast?!?)  had a rockin' rainbow birthday.  I'll just voluntarily admit that the cake inspired the whole party theme, it's true- but how awesome is it?  That's right- the cake that inspired the color scheme, goodie bags, rainbow Jell-o, and of course, the super spectacular rainbow cardi.   

Because I was too busy party hosting, I didn't grab many pictures- I only managed to get this one of Elise in her sweater (I'll try to get more soon):



However, we did get in a mini photo shoot before the party and were able to get some great 1-year shots, including this one-

And unfortunately, International Craft Day was a little forgotten this year- maybe I need to rethink the date for the future.

  23. Hi, I found the rainbow cardigan on Google Images, when searching for rainbow outfits. My daughters birthday is coming up and she is having a rainbow theme. Do you/would you sell/make the sweater if ordered? If so I'd like to order one for my daughter. It's simply adorable and so is the cake. :-)
    Please contact me. My email is kkortiz2@gmail.com
