To brighten up the tables and add more ‘Doc-related decor’, I’m going to create some Doc band-aid confetti. I am going to use some of the leftover brown construction paper for the band-aid and pink glitter and purple glitter scrapbook paper for the hearts.
From here its pretty easy. I will attach some of the hearts to the band-aid and some may be left separate.
Sprinkle them all over the food, gift, and dessert table.
Make sure to check back in June for the final display at the party!
After working on the banner, I wanted to start working on the invites. The date has already been locked down. Her actual birthday is the 10th but this year we will have the party on her late grandfather’s birthday, June 4th.
In keeping with the medical theme, I decided to make the invites look like a Band-Aid. Again, I used Photoshop and my Cricut to cut the template out. I used a similar design to the banner.
The invite consist of three parts. I made the middle a solid, squared off rectangle. For one side, I made the squared off rectangle a little smaller and cut holes to give a textured look to the Band-Aid.
On the other side, I will attach the invite info. This side will be sized the same as the textured side. I will used E6000 spray adhesive to attached everything.
Make sure to check back in for the final product!

I wanted a cute chevron print dress for my daughter to take Fall photos in but they can be so expensive. Thanks to Once Upon A Sewing Machine, I am able to create my own. Start by printing the free pattern.
Once you cut the pieces out you’ll have two front pieces and two sleeves.
I attached both of the sleeves, right sides together, to the front and sewed.
Now hem the sleeves and bottom of the dress.
I sewed the side seams. I went from the bottom of the sleeve all the way down to the bottom of the dress in one straight line. Next take your shearing scissors and trim along the edge.
Now I’ll make my casing. I turned my fabric over about 1/4″, then turned it again a little more to create the casing. Stitch the casing, leaving about an inch opening. Now take the elastic and put the safety pin through it. Feed the elastic in and close the opening. I used 18 inches of elastic for the 4T.
I wanted the dress to have a little more fall décor. I made a design in Photoshop and printed it out on iron paper. Now just apply the turkey to the bottom.
