I’m finally rummaging through photos from Paityn’s birthday party. My camera is on its last leg and gave me such fits on her party day. I kept having to stop and turn the camera off, eject the battery, replace it and then turn it back on. All while trying to get a one-year-old to hold a pose. How well do you think that worked??
Here is her lovely pink party in all its glory.
This Instagram display was just some thick ribbon glued to an empty frame. I printed the photos from printstagram. (By the way, I loved them, much better than postal pix.)
This cake was such a labor of love. It took my close to three hours total. Honestly, the rose icing was pretty easy, it was the actual cake that was tough. I used this scratch strawberry cake recipe and if you’re interested, here’s the icing tutorial I used.
Girlfriend loved eating the cake!
This is the best we could do getting a picture of the birthday girl with her parents. Her attention is always elsewhere.
Love that sweet baby girl!
