Marie Cake and Cake Toppers!

Hello Friends!

And Happy Birthday to Marie,
it's the big 257!!

The Marie Antoinette group has been celebrating all month
with lots of fun swaps, and I'd like to share with you
some creations I made to celebrate Marie's birthday.

Marti hosted a cake box swap;
we created our boxes from a template,
used pretty papers, lace, ribbons, and other embellishments
to adorn it,
and filled it with fun crafting goodies!
I made this cake box for my partner, Thespa:

And Debi hosted a cake topper swap.
I made mine a bit differently...
I made the base out of an empty ribbon spool,
wrapped in paper, trim and festooning,
and mounted it on a candlestick that I glittered and sealed.
This cake topper went to my partner, JoAnne:

This is the beautiful cake topper that JoAnne made for me:

It's beautiful, JoAnne, thank you so much!!

It's been a fun month, seeing everyone's creations.

Now, time for some freebies:

A little birthday sentiment:
