Welcome to the Control Freaks February 2010 Tour.  We are thrilled to have you join us today. I'm your 8th stop this month.  Our tour is nice and short, and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers.  In fact, if you started in the middle of the tour, you may have just come from my friend Gretchen Barron's blog - welcome! 

Our theme for this month is:  It's My Party!

Well - it's not my party, but it will be Max's party in a couple of months.  If you're a follower of mine, you know who Max is.  He's my grandson and he'll be turning FOUR in two months.  Wow - I can't believe he'll be four.  Seems like yesterday he was just a baby.  But I digress.

To get ready for his upcoming birthday, I've make a My Digital Studio Hybrid (both digital and real-life) invitation and other matching items with Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Bash Suite Products.  Which include the stamp set "Party this Way" (#118744), Celebrations Designer Series Paper (#117164) and Celebrations Digital Kit (#123728) from My Digital Studio!!!    

Here are the components I created using My Digital Studio:

Max Turns 4-003 

Side note:  I felt like I was channeling Patty Bennett when I was working on the above My Digital Studio components - he he!!

Here's the invite:


Now, it's cute just like this, but...it's even cuter made into an easel card!!


How fun is that?  I love the "word play" on his name.  That was my husband's contribution to the card.  Oh - forgot to mention - the actual invitation slips out.  Just pull on the Round Tab at the top.

Here's the candy and cake decorations...



The cupcake markers were punched out with a 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attached them to a toothpick.

Do you think he'll like it?  More importantly...do you think his mom (my daughter Angie) will like it?
