Party Recap

My son loves trains and started asking for a 3D Thomas cake for his birthday 6 months prior to his birthday. I wanted to use more of a colorful steam train in Thomas colors. We had his party at our local train station with the party in their picnic area.

    Yes, I did. I got the stickers form Do It Cute. You can find her on Facebook. She did the invites and big and small stickers. I used cut squares out of card stock and attached the sticker, same for the napkin rings, punched round circles and attached the sticker.
