Dinosaur Birthday {Part 1}

Monday, April 12, 2010

I had a project all ready to show you today (you know the one I mentioned where there had been a few mishaps). But I decided since my little guy is turning 3 on Friday that I would dedicate this week to his birthday preparations. So that other project will just have to wait a bit longer to be shared....

I asked Hudson if he wanted to have a pirate party or a dinosaur party. He told me pirates with no hesitation. Then I said, okay pirates it is. No dinosaurs. He immediately said, no, no. I want dinosaurs. And he stuck with that. So we are going all out dino style!

I spent some time tonight drawing some dinosaurs in Photoshop. Then I colored them up and added some details to them. I figured these would make cute little decorations. Here is a sample of one of them:

And just for being awesome readers I thought I would give them to you too. You can download them here.

I am going to print them out and attach them to toothpicks to use as cupcake toppers. (Sorry I would show you pictures but my printer is apparently out of red ink.) I am putting them on here for you in case you have a dinosaur party in your future too. I will have some other fun birthday stuff this week...hats, wrapping, maybe some invites and of course a cake to name a few.

How cute! My son (now 23) LOVED dinos and had several over the years. Can't wait to see all the party stuff.

Love the dinosaur!! You drew that on photoshop? Amazing. I need to learn to do this kind of stuff. (I don't have photoshop though) so that I can work on Tanner's superhero party. You are inspiring me to get going!

I did a dino party for my 4 year old this past fall... but didn't go over the top with deco since we just moved. I'm hoping he'll want another one, or maybe his brother, because I want to use the Cricut cartridge that has dinosaurs on it. Love that theme!! Hope his party turns out AWESOME.

Nice design. I can see that on a shirt too....or, hey, how about some bibs for the birthday kids to wear while chowin' down?? Just a little freezer paper, some fabric paint....
