Birthday Boys

An Astronaut
and a Pirate
What do they all have in common?
First up the astronaut on a Birthday card using Space Boy from Your Next Stamp.  It is based on the July SFYTT and also follows the challenge #47 from Your Next Stamp, which is a recipe - 1 image, 2 PP and 3 embellies.

Next a Birthday party with Spidey and a pirate :>)

These are pics from my sons' Birthday party, they just turned 4!  We really don't make a big deal over my sons being twins.  We try not to treat each the same, they rarely dress alike, they look nothing alike and have completely different personalities too!  That fits with they each wanted a different theme for their Birthday party.  I found the idea for the pirate ship cake on the Wilton website.  Their cake has mates to go along with the captain, so cute.  My time was limited since I had a second cake to make, so I went with 1 fondant pirate.  The Wilton cake also made the sails out of gum paste, but I went with fabric and my copics.  Once I decided to make the pirate ship, I knew I would need to make the Spiderman cake just as big, which resulted in a fondant covered rice crispy building. 
My sons were excited!
