Happy Birthday Grace!

It's my sister's birthday today! She is really excited and so are the rest of us. She wanted an awesome cake and she said that it would be really neat if we could find one with a Hunger Games theme.

Well, we took it a step above and here's what we created:

Mom baked it but I decorated it. It is based off of the dress Katniss wears in the 2nd movie. And the bottom of the cake is some ribbon that we found at Micheal's. She really liked it and I hope you do as well! The top of the dress is some lace that I wrapped around the doll and the bow and arrow are just frosting and I used a cake decorating tip to create the waves on the dress. Also we used some yellow and orange sprinkles on the cake. There is also some orange frosting spray that I used to enhance the flame looks.
I think it looks pretty close! ;)

Fabulous Finds: Thrift Store (Idaho Falls) I know that you all are probably wondering what the deal is and well....the deal is that what I thought was going to be a quiet couple of weeks suddenly got very busy and I just haven't had time to post. Seriously! I ended up having to write a 5-7 paper in a week and on top of that five 50 million page long chapters to read as well. Ugh!!!

But for the moment I am caught up so here I am.

I had to go down to Idaho Falls for the Praxis test a little bit ago (which by the way I passed! Yay!) and we stopped at the local Youth Ranch. Which by the way every town should have! Here are my fabulous finds!

Starting at the top is a picture that I bought for about $6. It's abstract and I really enjoy it. I think that it looks like trees with some mountains in the background with some clouds. My dad didn't like it but I sure do!

The burgundy sign is for my bathroom, I have a Paris theme so it will be really cute!

I found a square table cloth that had blue flowers painted on and I think it looks very retro.

And last, but certainly not least, a picture album which is so awesomely vintage!

Anyway, another busy week coming up but keep posted for an awesome Hunger Games theme cake!
