Under the Sea Birthday Banner

Hello Crafty Peeps:) Happy, Happy New Year to you all! 

I have a Birthday Banner to share with you all today:) I made this banner for my nieces 1st birthday party. Her birthday party theme was "Under the sea" with a splash of Little Mermaid characters:).


I woke up my Cricut machine for this one:) lol. Its been so long since I've used this bad boy lol Sorry I can't remember which cartridge I used to cut out the banner, and the letters. 

The cute little bows were cut out with my cuttlebug using my new  My Creative Time  "Medium Stitched Scallop Bow Die." Emma's dies are so cute and super easy to work with. Not to mention top notch quality:)  
I added some glitter, witch I have had for ever, to the letters to give the banner some sparkle and dazzle. A few store bought sea shells and there you have it ladies and gentlemen, a cute "Under the Sea" theme birthday banner:)lol. 



I glued two sea shells together and added a pearl in the center to make some cute decorations for the fish bowl center pieces. Sorry I can't find a picture of the center pieces:( 


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment. I love reading them:) 

I would like to enter my Birthday Banner in the following challenges: 


Make sure to stop by these awesome blogs and join in on the fun:) 

Peace, Love, & Cricut Hugs!
