This month's Theme for the Pals Paper Art Hop is Birthday's! I was thrilled to create these projects as my youngest child Candice will turn 7 on Jan 15th. The theme for this hop was the perfect timing! I created 3 projects with Candice's favorite color....Orange. I have no clue where that came from but she loves it!

I created a Birthday Invitation, a Party gift bag (with matching tag and bow), and a party favor box filled with treats so she can give to her freinds.
