Cooking With Cricut - Birthday Theme

Happy Wednesday!  Many of you are fighting the weather.  Please be safe and stay warm.

Today at Cooking With Cricut, we're celebrating BIRTHDAYS!  It's extra special for me because today I'm celebrating one cute little 6 year old's birth this morning.  My project is a banner I made for Caleb.  I used one of his favorite colors, brown.  Big shout out to Raven with Love 4 Stamps on her tutorial on making the pinwheels.  Her tutorial is super easy to follow. 

He's seen his banner already and was overjoyed.  For real.  It was too funny.  I heard from read his name and then spelled.  That was followed by a big THANKS MOM.  I hope you like it too.  Ingredients are listed under the picture. 

Our sponsor this week is none other than Peachy Keen Stamps.  I'm excited about this prize and wish that I could participate and win.  But I can't so I guess you'll have to have all the fun!  So, enter for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to PKS. 

Melin has even provided some sketches to follow if you choose to do so.  Using the sketch is NOT required but can be solely for inspiration.
