Hi Everyone,  I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Thank you to everyone who has left comments here and on facebook about Sofia’s Bubblegum and Soda Party – it has been such an exciting few days receiving such lovely feedback.  If you missed the post you can see it here.  
I have had lots of questions about various aspects of the party and today I thought I would show you how I created the spoons with Sofia’s name on it.

It was quite simple, but the effect looked like I had had them printed professionally.  
First of all I pulled out the stamp with Sofia’s name on it that I had made last year.
Then I pulled out one of my favourite scrapbooking tools – the liquid chalk.  I used the brown colour as it gives it the vintage look.  You can buy liquid chalk in most craft or scrapbooking stores – Spotlight sells them in Australia in a large array of colours.  
I then set to work stamping each of the little spoons with my “Sofia” stamp.
The ice cream cup and spoon set is one by Robert Gordon Workshop and I got mine from the lovely Gaby at Love to Celebrate.  The colours matched my theme perfectly and they were the perfect size for a piece of cake and ice cream.   If you would like to order your very own stamp I am now taking orders – see my blog post here for details.
One final note for today – I have been nominated as one of the Top 25 Party Plannin Moms over on Circle of Moms – you are able to vote once a day until 11th April.
