In the Designer's Words: "How do I make just one project with so many fabulous products?? You make a whole party of course! My inspiration and theme is "celebrating yourself". I blog about paper crafts and parties, and after throwing literally hundreds of parties, I finally decided to throw a birthday party for myself! My birthday just happens to fall on Cinco De Mayo, so I thought a birthday fiesta would be perfect! This is the first time I have creating something just for me, and I am so proud of what I made. I can't wait to celebrate with my friends! And I thought a Cinco De Mayo inspired party would be the perfect post for your eBook launch on May 2nd. ;)
Goodness, this was such a fun party to put together! It was honestly a privilege to be able to create something with so many incredible and innovative brands at the same time. Thank you for the opportunity. And thank you for hosting such a fun party at CHA!"
