Cupcake Smash

I admit that when my nephew told me they were having a "cupcake smash" to celebrate Sam's first birthday all I could say was "Huh?".

Turns out it's now fashionable, and obviously fun, to sit down baby with a huge cupcake and let him "have at it".

When I got the picture I wanted to be one again and dive into a huge cupcake, smear it everywhere and eat it as I painted myself with broad strokes of cake and icing. We never grow out of some things and making a mess is one of them.

Between his look of wonder, and the amount of icing on his face, hands and feet, there can be no doubt that Sam had a great time.

The sketch I used is by Laura Whitaker for Scrapmuch?. There's still time to create your page and get it posted before the end of the month. It's always fun to try and win a prize.
Instead of a separate layer against the background I used only a pictorial paper. I just loved all the little animals that came to the party.
I interpreted the doily as outlines of clouds in complimentary colours and the embellishment was, of course, a cupcake with a No. 1 on top. A simple title and the whole thing came together. To me it says fun and little boy party.
Wanna party anyone?
