My handsome little nephew is turning 7. I remember when I met Jayden for the first time. He was a toddler. And now he’s growing up so fast. So this year my mother-in-law came to visit and I told her about the party decor I did for a few of my coworker’s kids b-day parties. She mentioned Jayden’s party was coming up in a couuple of months and gave me the idea to create a banner for him. Jayden loooooves Pokemon. So I not only decided to create a banner, I also paper pieced a cake topper and cupcake toppers.  I set out on Google to find SVG files to use my Cricut (I LOOOOOVE THIS MAHCINE!!). Here’s what I came up with:

It only took a couple of hours to upload and edit the images how I wanted them. Then I cut them out and paper pieced them together. They came out awesome!! What do you think? Unfortunately, I will not be able to go to his party becuase I am overseas, however he’ll have a piece of Aunt Tara there with him! I sure hope he likes it!
